Are head collars considered an aversive training tool by AnimalKind standards?

No, not if used properly. Head collars can be aversive to some dogs, but this can often be prevented with proper fitting and careful introduction of the tool. Trainers can help prevent or change a negative reaction to head collars by using positive reinforcement, desensitization and counterconditioning methods to build a positive association with the head collar.
