I am doing a course in Canine care and behaviour and am doing some research at min. I would really appreciate it if a couple of people could answer these questions--


a. What equipment do they walk their dog with.
b. Do they feel it is correctly fitted.
c. Why do they think it is fitted correctly. ( eg. The pet shop fitted it!)
d. What is the dogs favourite toy.
e. What is the dogs favourite game.
f. Do they have a special toy that they put away when not playing with the dog.
g. If no toys are given to the dog then why.

Thanks in advance :)

a. Flat (normal) collar and leash
b. Yes
c. Can get some fingers under collar but he can't get out or slip it and our trainer also thought it was ok
d. Favourite toy changes all the time.
e. hide n seek (of a toy not the humans although i play that sometimes too)
f. Lots of toys are put away when not playing with them, he only has some toys all of the time. hide n seek toy goes away, kongs and treat balls go away, tug toys for playing with on walks go away but he always has something to chew and something to throw around.
g. If no toys are given to the dog then why.

B.) Yep, they fit correctly.
C.) Just snug enough so that they can't back out of the collar.
D.) Anything that moves, wiggles, flies, or makes noise.
E.) Gunnr- Wrestling/chase. Tika- Chasing her flying Squirrel toy, or wriggling around in the laundry.
F.) No
G.) N/A
