You have just adopted a West Highland White Terrier puppy. And it’s joy and happiness in your family! But now, it is necessary to equip your doggie for the inside of your house but also for the outside…. And the collar and leash are essential from the very first day your West Highland White Terrier baby is taken out. This article will help you to understand why and how to choose the best collar for your West Highland White Terrier puppy.
Why do you need a collar for your West Highland White Terrier puppy?
This is useful first of all to identify your doggie. Indeed, the necklace may have a plaque or medal with its name and your address or telephone number. So, if you lose him, the person who will retrieve him will have no difficulty contacting you very quickly. In other words, the collar is your puppy’s first piece of identification.
But the collar is also essential to attach a leash…
Why is it imperative to keep your West Highland White Terrier puppy on a leash?
First of all, you should know that this is required in public places.
But it will be necessary mostly for his own safety as soon as you take him out of your home. Indeed, by keeping him on a leash, you will prevent him from getting lost or crossing an avenue full of cars… You will protect him from any danger.
And since walking at a pace following his master is not at all natural for a puppy, it will be necessary to educate him gradually in order to teach him to walk at your pace calmly, without pulling, without getting angry…
How to get your West Highland White Terrier puppy to wear the collar?
You should start by getting him used to wearing his collar before adding the leash.
To do this, I advise you to put it in place when he is distracted by something else and leave it for a few hours. Make sure that he does not squeeze his neck too tightly but also that he cannot remove it. I advise you to put his collar on from time to time for several days so that he gets used to it gradually.
As soon as he easily accepts to put on his collar, you can add the leash. Thus, you will gradually accustom him to walk at your pace without compelling him or scolding him. The walk should be a moment of pleasure for your puppy. Don’t ask him too much at once….
