Pet Training Supplies

Pet training supplies include anything you may need to work with and train your pet. Obviously, the specific pet training supplies you will need will vary greatly depending on the species of pet that you have. In general, you will need pet supplies to help keep your pet where you want him, tools for the training itself, and something to give him as a reward for his good behavior (along with your lavish praise, of course!).

If you are leash training a dog or cat, or even an iguana, you certainly need a leash and either a collar or harness. It is important to get the right size and type of collar for your pet. Dog collars are often made from nylon or leather, both of which are durable. Cat collars are often made from the same materials as dog collars, although durability usually is not as much of an issue with cat collars. All cat collars should feature breakaway clips or other safety features. These prevent the collar from getting snagged and harming the cat by allowing the collar to break off if necessary. Pet collars should always fit the animal properly. If a collar is too tight, there is a risk of choking. If the collar is too loose, your pet may be able to slip out of it. Like collars, leashes should be the appropriate size for your pet; durability is very important for dogs that resist leash training. Shorter leashes often make better pet training supplies, since it is easier to control and teach your pet on a shorter leash.
