Head halters are an alternative to collars that works similarly to a horse halter. The halter fits over the dog's snout and behind its head (leading it to sometimes be mistaken for a muzzle). Halters reduce the dog's ability to successfully pull on the leash, but do not eliminate it. If the halter is used with a sharp jerk on the leash, neck injury to the dog may result, but used correctly head halters have not been shown to cause harm.
"We will hasten our departure, Mr. Barnstable," said Griffith, sighingheavily, and rousing himself, as if from a trance. "These rude sightscannot but appall the ladies. You will please, sir, to direct the orderof our march to the shore. Captain Manual has charge of our prisoners,who must all be secured, to answer for an equal number of our owncountrymen."
Slip collars (commonly called choke chain or check chains) are made of metal links or rolled material such as nylon or leather. A metal ring is at each end. Historically, slip collars have been used as a matter of course, mostly in North America and the UK. In the last few decades use of these collars has declined. Correctly used, the collar should make a quick clicking not zipping sound when quickly snapped and released to startle or get the attention of the dog and indicate to the handler that the technique was a swift jerk not a choke. The idea is not to strangle the dog, though this can happen if the collar is improperly used.
The leash or lead is used to connect the dog to the handler, lead the dog, as well as to control the dog in urban areas. Most communities have laws which prohibit dogs from running at large. They may be made of any material such as nylon, metal or leather. A six-foot length is commonly used for walking and in training classes, though leashes come in lengths both shorter and longer. A long line (also called a lunge line) can be 3 metres (ten feet) or more in length, and are often used to train the dog to come when called from a distance.
The recruiting officer manifested a composure throughout it, and thelatter laughing, and indulging those buoyant spirits that a boy of hisyears and reflection might be supposed to feel even in such a scene.It was fortunate for her cousin that Katherine had possessed so muchforethought; for the attention of Cecilia Howard was directed much moreto the comforts of her uncle than to those which were necessary forherself. Attended by Alice Dunscombe, the young mistress of St. Ruthmoved through the solitary apartments of the building, listening tothe mild religious consolation of her companion in silence, at timesyielding to those bursts of mortified feeling, that she could notrepress, or again as calmly giving her orders to her maids, as if theintended movement was one of but ordinary interest. All this time theparty in the dining-hall remained stationary. The Pilot, as if satisfiedwith what he had already done, sank back to his reclining attitudeagainst the wall, though his eyes keenly watched every movement of thepreparations, in a manner which denoted that his was the master spiritthat directed the whole. Griffith had, however, resumed, in appearance,the command, and the busy seamen addressed themselves for orders to himalone. In this manner an hour was consumed, when Cecilia and Katherineappearing in succession attired in a suitable manner for theirdeparture, and the baggage of the whole party having been alreadyentrusted to a petty officer and a party of his men, Griffith gave forththe customary order to put the whole in motion. The shrill, piercingwhistle of the boatswain once more rang among the galleries and ceilingsof the abbey, and was followed by the deep, hoarse c
"Nor do we quarrel before ours in England," returned the soldier,throwing back the fierce glance of the sailor with interest; "but I wasthinking of the revolutions that time can produce; nothing more, I doassure you. It is not half an hour since I thought myself a most happyfellow; secure in my plans for overreaching the scheme you had laidto surprise me; and now I am as miserable a dog as wears a singleepaulette, and has no hope of seeing its fellow!"
"Breathe not that name in levity again, thou scoffer, or even youryears may prove a feeble protection!" said a stern, startling voice frombehind. All eyes turned involuntarily at the unexpected sounds, andthe muscular form of the Pilot was seen resuming its attitude of reposeagainst the wall, though every fibre of his frame was working withsuppressed passion.
We will try our best to make sure you see the same coaches each week for your classes, because we think it is important for us to get to know you and your puppy. The coaches work in teams of three, so you should get to know all the team members over your course. Occasionally there may be a change in one coach because of sickness or holidays, but if this is necessary, we will try to ensure that you are introduced to your new coach the week before the change so that they are familiar with you and your dog.
Anybody who is involved in the care of your dog is encouraged to come along to class, including children. Please bear in mind that your coaches will be talking to the class on a group level to teach you valuable key messages about behaviour, so it is important that anybody attending is able to listen quietly (if young children are attending it could be a good idea to bring something to keep them occupied with at these times). Let your coach know if you have any special requirements or will have more than 3 people attending with your dog, so that they can prepare and make sure there is enough space. To make sure you can concentrate on training your puppy, we would ask that you leave any other pets (including other dogs) at home.

"I bear no commission from any quarter," returned the Pilot; "I rankonly an humble follower of the friends of America; and having led thesegentlemen into danger, I have thought it my duty to see them extricated.They are now safe; and the right to command all that hear me rests withMr. Griffith, who is commissioned by the Continental Congress for suchservice."
Dogs Trust Dog School is different from other dog training classes you may have been to. We are passionate about dog behaviour and want to help you teach your puppy or dog to fit happily into your family life. That means doing some basic training of course – he needs to learn to sit when asked, walk with you on a loose lead and come back when you call. But that isn’t all. At Dog School, we also help your dog learn how to behave in everyday situations, such as when you pass other dogs, stop to talk to people in the street, or need him to settle down when you’re busy. Dog School is also about making sure you develop a strong bond with your dog, understand his or her behaviour, and know how to react when things don’t go according to plan. We set up the classes to make you and your dog feel as relaxed and confident as possible, so you can both make the most of all the new information and experiences that you will have with us at Dogs Trust Dog School.
