As my kids would say, “the S - word” is not appropriate to describe anyone. The old mentality that your dog; whether beagle, husky or bulldog (sorry Jack) are a few banana’s short of a bunch is ludicrous. Each breed has a unique inherent trait developed by man for man’s use. We created these to make our life easier. The hunter’s job was made simpler if a group of hounds helped to chase down the fox, rabbit or fugitive! Those bird dogs will dive into extreme waters without hesitation and the herders, are incredibly swift, smart and tireless. So when you’re picking your next breed do so wisely. The only example of little intelligence is the poor decision making of the owner.

HOW TO AVOID NECK INJURY
(Including Choke chains, Martingales & Flat collars)
· Never yank backwards and/or upwards with your leash
· Excessive pulling requires professional training
· Coughing is a sign of a damaged airway
· Keep your leash downward and/or sideways at all times
Many dogs suffer damage, swelling and pain on daily walks. Avoid the danger zone of the throat by using proper leash direction.
Most dogs have a lot of muscle tissue around their neck but all dogs have a thin layer at the throat.
