The manufacturer will replace any Canny Collar free of charge to the original purchaser, no questions asked, in the unlikely event that the collar fails due to a manufacturing fault or material defect.
- Easy to fit, simple to use - It's as easy as fitting your dogs regular collar. We use a standard, nickel-plated steel buckle and pin fitting for greater security and a simple line of high quality webbing to control your dog's head. There are no complicated instructions, just fit it and go!
- Training, not restraining - The Canny Collar can train your dog to walk on a simple collar and lead with no pulling. By moving the slip line on and off your dog's nose as required, you can gradually teach him not to pull at all, even when he feels nothing on his nose.
- You can leave it on when off lead - No need to take the Canny Collar off when letting your dog run free simply use the carabineer clips to fasten the slip line underneath your dog's chin (snout) and away he goes.
- More comfort for your dog - The Canny Collar is simply a standard collar, generously padded for comfort, with a single line of material (the slip line) going over your dog's nose. This means he is free to breathe freely, open his mouth and enjoy his walk as much as you want him to. There is less material to restrict his mouth which also allows him to get used to the Canny Collar very quickly.
About the inventor, 'Scottish Horse Whisperer' Brian SmithThe Canny Collar has come a long way since it was first conceived by Brian Smith, an old-fashioned horseman and inventor from Crieff, a small town at the foot of the Scottish Highlands. Brian's compassionate attitude and his work with equine behavior problems led him to develop a special slip-line collar for Wallace, a difficult stallion for whom other more traditional collars were too painful. The new 'horse controller' worked instantly, giving Brian complete control of Wallace within a matter of minutes. He was also delighted to see that Wallace was experiencing no pain or discomfort. Brian realized that owners with dog behavior problems could benefit from his idea when his daughter, Claire, arrived home with her dog's harness snapped into several pieces after a 'walk'. Bonnie was the typical boisterous pet that enjoyed taking Claire for a walk, usually by dragging her down the street and which no piece of dog training equipment had been able to fix! Brian adapted his horse controller, fitted it onto Bonnie and the scaled-down dog training collar was immediately successful. Within 50 feet, Brian was walking Bonnie on a loose lead, to the amazement of everyone watching. Brian's wife, Nell, dubbed it 'uncanny' and the Canny Collar was born. After testing, adapting and putting the finishing touches to his new dog training collar, Brian toured the many fairs, horse shows and dog events in his native Scotland, quickly gaining a reputation for his product. It wasn't long before the Canny Collar attracted a wider audience in the world of dog training, resulting in Brian agreeing to work together with the newly formed Canny Company to give this new dog walking aid the worldwide recognition it deserves. Brian now devotes his energy to working full time with horses that have behavior problems. He has saved many animals whose owners had simply given up on them and which would otherwise have been destroyed. His knowledge, skill and ability to communicate with even the most difficult horse have led many to think of him as the Scottish Horse Whisperer. Dog owners and the world of dog training have a special man to thank for a very special idea.

Why Buy From Us?
To ensure your Canny Collar fits accurately,take a tape and measure around your dog's neck snugly,to just behind the ears. Then,choose the correct size Canny Collar for your dog using the following measurements:
Canny Colossus Size: The Canny Colossus is available in black for dogs with a neck size of 58 - 69 cm (23" - 27").
*For smaller breeds check out the original Canny Collar
Step 1. - Fasten the Canny Collar around your dog's neck,ensuring the buckle is positioned just behind his ears at the back. Fold any excess collar and tuck it under the lip of the buckle. The Canny Collar should fit higher up the neck than a conventional collar,as shown.
Step 2. - A snug fit is essential with any dog training collar to ensure it cannot come off your dog while walking. Test the Canny Collar by trying to pull it off your dog's head while facing him - if fitted correctly,this should not be possible.
Step 3. - Pull each end of the thin slip line behind your dog's head and attach your leash to both 'D' rings at each end.
Step 4. - Pull the slip line through the small yellow plastic guider at the front of the Canny Collar and place over your dog's snout. With some breeds,it may be easier to do this before attaching the leash. Take care not to twist the slip line before placing it over your dog's snout.
Step 5. - Ensure you leave the plastic guider under your dog's chin. This is absolutely vital. If this plastic guider is not kept under the chin,the Canny Collar will not function correctly.
Step 6. - Now you're ready to begin walking your dog using the Canny Collar.
Tips For Your First Time Out:
To begin walking your dog successfully on a loose leash with no pulling,you first need to ensure that you purchase the correct size of Canny Collar. Use the sizing guide to determine which size you need. A snug fit is essential to ensure that the Canny Collar cannot come off during a walk. Once you fit the Canny Collar,face your dog and try to pull it over his ears and off his head. If it can come off,you will need to fit it more snugly or change it for a smaller size. Put the Canny Collar on and go for a walk immediately. Keep your leash short but loose when walking and aim to have your dog in the 'heel' position. Using a short dog training leash will make this easier. Give him plenty of vocal praise when he begins walking well. The first time you put the slip line over your dog's nose,he may resist it and try to paw it off his face. Any dog training collar will cause this reaction for some dogs. It is similar to the feeling we have when wearing a wristwatch for the first time - some dogs are simply not used to it. You should continue walking so that your dog focuses on the walk rather than on the Canny Collar,lifting your leash when he paws at it and verbally encouraging him to follow you. Once your dog is walking,instantly lower the leash to release the pressure on the Canny Collar (you should also let him have some more leash here) and give him plenty of vocal praise whilst keeping walking. He needs to know that at some point in the walk,the pressure will be released; otherwise he may just continue to pull against it. Repeat this action if again he tries to remove the Canny Collar. Because the leash is connected behind his head,he will not be able to get a paw over the leash and bring the walk to a stop. Nor will he get the Canny Collar off his head if the leash is kept in the correct position. Sometimes you may need to let the leash out if he drops behind you,bringing it back in again once he catches up. Once any initial resistance to the Canny Collar has stopped,continue walking your dog for a short distance and then stop and give him plenty of praise. Use treats or clicker training if your dog responds well to these to accustom him to the Canny Collar. Walking your dog will become a pleasure again very soon!
