    Personally I don't like check chains for a variety of reasons. I certainly wouldn't use one on a Dally. Unless you have a problem dog (I would hope not as a pup) I see no reason to start them out on a check chain immediately.
    Great, yea I really wasnt sure...I guess our last dally was not very well trained and did become a problem dog due to that..probably was not the best time for our parents to get us a pup, so I am aware of how things can get out of hand if pups are not trained and looked after property.
    So flat collars are fine?

    Flat collars are best for pups. You would preferrably want a dog who grows up and behaves on a flat collar so best to try and get them working on one early.

    As you progress if she is pulling on the lead etc you can look into something like a Black Dog Infin8 head collar to use as a tool.

    Or if you want something similar but friendlier than a choke you can look into getting a martingale collar.

    I see a donation bar at the top, do we have any fundraising days or anything like that??
    Just asking because on the weekends im a clown a real one who paints faces and if we ever have a fundraising day I would be more than happy to offer my services......
    Not that this is a plug for myself or anything because its more of a hobby than a job.

    heheh yes he is tiny.. he was 3 weeks there , he has a brother who is very very similar but so so much smaller than the rest of the litter so I was a little iffy.

    Pitty fans.. I just met a pitty x lab it was the cutest thing ever!! it just looked like a huge chocolate pitty with a little more of a gut I dont care what people say about cross breeds.. they can still be the cutest most delightful things.
