I would rather have my dog on a prong collar than have him pull with all his strength against a flat collar, since I'm sure that's not good for the neck. Another thing that rarely gets mentioned is how it affects the person: when the dog is on a prong, you have control of your dog and therefore you're calm, but if the dog is pulling you all over, you're stressed and the dog will certainly pick up on this. If your dog can pull you over, that's another thing to consider.
