We all know a fact or two about our belovedpups. However here at Gencon we wanted to find some incredible facts that you may not know, to really help you appreciate how intelligent our little companions are!

In ancient China, an emperor’s last line of defense was a small Pekingese dog, literally hidden up his sleeve.
Fact #4 Spiked dog collars were invented in ancient Greece and here originally designed to protect dogs throats from wolf attacks.
There is a dog-shaped building in New Zealand. How incredible! Here at Gencon we want you to have healthy and happy companions!
As wolf attacks are fairly uncommon in the UK we doubt you will be needing a spiked dog collar, however we know how common it is for your dog to pull on the lead when excited about the big “W”. The Gencon All-in-1 and Headcollars are made from soft yet durable fabric and are specifically designed not to pull up into your dog’s eyes or uncomfortably turn their head, making them the perfect lead training accessories for grown dogs and puppy walking. The Gencon consists of two simple loops that apply gentle pressure when your dog pulls, the lead gently but effectively stops your dog pulling forwards. So why not give it a try?
