I am a newbie
My name is Pat, I have a gorgeous little boy now 5 months old, named Blaze. He is an Apple head weighs 3lbs 2oz.
My question is how do you get a collar on the pup. He gets hysterical and cries, I tried it again the next day and still cries. I've left the collar on for awhile but he got it off. I tried a few days later hoping he would calm down. He doesn't like anything going over his head. I have a leash with a loop at the end now but still he hates it but does not cry...only putting up his paws like to say, get it away from me. I let it trail for awhile but he doesn't like to move when it is on.. His personality changes after taking it off he will not come to me and acts paranoid, after a few days of not collaring him he is back to his cute self.. I only wanted to go through training with a leash so I could get him to come to me, sit, and down. I've been successful with "paw", "speak" "come" but when I go to pick him up he walks away, I hate that!
I would love to hear from you.
