Thanks! I am not sure how he will respond and I will start him out on walks early but wanted kind of a combo to use for training as well. The collar I got him may not even fit him yet...LOL. I love ifitbarks collars and the quality is top notch. But was thinking a martingale may be good for training as well...but maybe not. I used chain choke collars way back when but have read a lot of info on not using them so I wanted an alternative as I won't be using one this go around. His regular collar may be just fine. The slip collar looks like the same function as the choke but in a different material so I will probably mark that off as well. I know I don't want anything to restricting since he will be so young and may not even need it.
Thanks for the help and sorry about your loss as well. It has been a long time since I searched for leads and training stuff....so any insight or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Sometimes all the info on the net gets me more confused than anything...LOL
