Check out the “Illusion” collar…
It’s an anatomical thing, really… Most collars sit far too low on the neck, which is where the dog has all his power. The closer to the head the collar is, the more control you have over the dog’s movement.
BTW… Sorry if I sound like a Cesar Millan commercial! It’s just that he really knows his stuff when it comes to handling powerful breeds. His training methods have worked on every dog I’ve adopted so far.
A doggie backpack also works *wonders* on walks. My girls focus so much on doing the “job” of carrying the backpack that they forget to tug! It’s a miracle what a difference it makes! 🙂
Hope this helps… Good luck with Zilla!
