Tether Tips!

Tether Tips!

Don’t Toss Those Single Socks!

Pet Tethers and Teenie Tethers are enrobed in a durable poly/nylon coating, which helps to prevent marring of your furniture, baseboards and other objects near your tether points, but for some additional added protection, an old sock can be a great solution. Tube/athletic socks are best, but any sock will do. Just cut the toe out of a singleton sock (one whose partner has gone stray!), then turn it halfway inside out, so that it is double thickness. Run your Pet Tether through the sock before installing it on furniture to provide additional protection from potential scuffing.

An Extra Set of Hands!

Using Pet Tethers in your training program is like having an extra set of hands! Your dog can be securely attached to a tether point, leaving your hands free to manipulate other training gear (such as target sticks, clickers, treats, toys, etc.) or to offer hand signals. For new trainers just acquiring their skills, this can be a huge asset in developing confidence, timing and technique!

This Pomeranian pup was jumping up on his mom for greetings and fun, scratching her delicate skin. Without a tether, she had no means to control him or getaway. But once he’s safely attached to a stationary tether point, his mom now has the flexibility to train at arm’s length, protecting her skin and giving her the ability to turn away or walk away to let him know his behavior is unacceptable. Less frustration (and pain!) and better results!

See how the Teenie Tether is a great choice for toy-breed dogs! Check out our complete line of Pet Tethers.
