Question: I am thinking about purchasing some tugs for my 4 month old. Which tug would you recommend?

Hi Cindy.

Thank you in advance for your advice. I very much appreciate the help.

I have a 4 month old border collie/aussie and I am thinking about purchasing some tugs for her to play with. She loves to chase a long rope and catch the end of it, and she is very quick, but it is hard to get her to out the toy. Would you recommend using the furry fleece tug (she loves furry animal toys), the synthetic puppy tug or the leather puppy tug?

Thank you

Cindy's Response:

I would probably get one of each if you can manage that. The reason is that some dogs will become partial to one particular surface to bite/play with and it can cause issues down the road. I introduce my little puppies to jute, linen, fleece, leather, rubber, plastic, etc...

I want my adult dogs to bite anything I offer, anytime, anywhere. By exposing them to many different items when they are young you reduce the risk of equipment bias later. I hope this helps.

on Leerburg's Einstein ET500

Hi there anyone considering this collar and thank you to you Cindy at Leerburg for pointing me in the right direction!

I bought this collar after seeing it advertised here at Leerburg, being in the UK we have a very poor selection of remote training collars. I won't mention the brand but my first one I couldn't help feeling that the stimulation was extremely inconsistent and I was damaging my relationship with with beautiful 55 kilo Rottweiler already an obedience champ. Therefore I contacted Cindy and explained where I wanted to improve my training, told her that I was very impressed with the Einstein Collar but would the ET500 be sufficient for my rather large but extremely trim/fit Rottweiler. Cindy told me that she was using the mini Einstein on one of her dogs and that was recommendation enough. The battery life is fab, the light system is so bright (almost on par with my 'Surefire' torch', the transmitter is so well designed, switching it on and off is so simple. I love this collar and have now bought the ET502 as well. Both the ET500 & ET502 are amazing both on the stability increment of stimulation, their features, the design of the receiver and the transmitter. All in all the most secure feature for me and my dogs is the fact you can lock the level of stimulation for the individual dog, which I found a nightmare to do with just one dog on other 'very' well known brands....

I love this product and highly recommend this advanced training tool, but a remote collar is never going to be a substitute for obedience training but once you've completed that... the sky is the limit with a remote collar as ingenious as the Einstein you will never look back. I am watching this space to see what Einstein come up with next!

Thanks again for all your help.
