A lot of dogs will actually bite if their collar is grabbed when they are loose and fearful after having run away.
This video was inspired by the little Shiba Inu I caught this morning at the park after it had ran away.
The short exercises I will show you in this video explain how you can condition your dog to LOVE and feel relaxed and safe, when their collar is grabbed.
Even if your dog would never run away from you or you have a confident dog this is a great exercise to practice, incase of emergencies like a fire or flood or when your dog is hurt and could be skittish and acting abnormally.
This is actually also a great exercise to teach puppies to stop mouthing and biting when you are trying to put their leash on, or trying to handle them. There are many handling exercises to do with your dog, this is just one of them.
