How Canny® Collar Differs from Other Head Collars

  • The Canny® Collar operates as both a training collar and a flat collar
  • The nose strap is held in place with a guide under the chin to prevent the strap from riding up and irritating the eyes
  • The nose strap is relaxed over the dog’s muzzle and does not apply pressure unless the dog is actively pulling on the leash, which prevents strap imprints on the muzzle
  • The nose strap design also allows for a greater difference between pressure on and pressure off whereas some head collars provide consistent pressure
  • The leash attaches to the collar behind the dog’s head which prevents the dog’s head from tilting on an unnatural angle when pressure is applied to the leash
  • The collar is a flat collar design with a buckle clasp which makes it extremely sturdy and durable
  • The flat collar with the buckle design reduces the chances of the collar stretching due to the dog’s pulling on the leash, providing a better fit overall
  • Since the collar is not subject to stretching out of shape it is easier to keep the collar in place behind the ears, utilizing the submission pressure point as well as preventing escape
  • When the dog applies pressure on the leash, the pressure is directed down, over the muzzle and not across the throat.  This prevents gagging, chocking or coughing and makes it one of the only head collars that are safe for using with dogs who are prone to collapsible trachea
  • The transition to flat collar is extremely easy and safe because the leash is never removed.  When the dog is walking well the handler removes the strap from the nose and the collar becomes a flat collar.  If the dog begins to pull the handler stops and places the strap back on the nose to turn it back into a training collar
  • The Canny® Collar reduces the force a dog can generate by pulling on the leash by 60% to 80%.
  • It is one of the few head collars that will fit and work well for many brachycephalic (short nose) dogs in addition to dog’s who have prominent eyes such as the Boston Terrier

“Georgian Triangle Humane Society LOVES the Canny® Collar!”

“A challenge that every Dog Shelter has is getting each dog the walks that they need while keeping their volunteers safe.  This is no different for the GTHS and a tool that has helped tremendously with that is the Canny® Collar.  This effective walking tool not only allows each member of our Dog Pack to get the much needed time out of kennel and the exercise that they need.  It does it while being gentle on their bodies. It also gives me as the Dog Care and Adoption Supervisor peace of mind that our dogs are out in our community happy and safe.  The Canny® Collar is our ” best friend”  here at the GTHS!”
