I can only speak for myself. I have a male that is so strong that I couldn't hold him back if he wanted to take off, so I got a prong and it was the best thing I did! He didn't have a problem with it and learned not to pull, I only had to use it for a short time.
I don't leave my dogs outside unless we aren't home and they are always inside at night. If you are going to kennel him anyway, why not do it inside in a crate?
