Gencon fitting instructions
If your dog is comfortable wearing the Gencon headcollar it will be more likely to stop pulling on the lead. That is why we have written this guide to help you get your dog used to wearing its new headcollar.
Although fitting a Gencon All-in-1 or Headcollar is simplicity itself, we all know, anything new for your dog, and for yourself, takes a bit of practice and learning. We advise that you read these instructions or watch our easy-to-follow Gencon® All-in-1 and Headcollar videos to see how you apply our special dog training lead to stop any dog pulling on a lead and to keep him or her happy.
As you’ll see, we have worked with the best dog trainers in the business and like everything, once you and your dog are used to fitting our innovative system, it’ll just be part of your normal daily routine.
For the first few times however it’s advisable to practise with your Gencon at home when your dog is calm and has already been exercised. We recommend that you always associate the new headcollar alongside something positive and enjoyable for your dog. This might mean gently placing the lead over the dog’s head or neck while it is eating or simply delivering a treat or toy if the dog does not react. Ultimately your dog will then associate the Gencon with its future walks and this will be ample reward and motivation.
Over time, gradually increase the length of time your dog spends on the dog training lead. Practise using it in your garden or living room before venturing out into external environments. The Gencon® is available for either left or right side walking so that the kit provides the ultimate comfort and ease for both of you whilst lead training your dog.
Introducing your dog to the Gencon headcollar
- Stop your dog pulling on a lead by having a properly fitted Gencon headcollar
- Introduce your dog to the headcollar by associating it with something fun or exciting
- Slowly increase the time the dog is walked on the dog training lead
Please note we recommend you wait until your dog is 6 months before using the All-in-1 or Headcollar.
