What's the difference?
From a training aspect, what is the difference between a Martingale and a slip chai choker. Bot tend to cut off the dogs air when it is pulling against a leash or it's handler. Assuming that we remove any kind of a choke collar after the training session what is the difference in the outcomes of the two different styles of collar? A Martingale also tightens as the dog pulls and a properly fitted one will tighten sufficiently to stop the dog from breathing exactly the same as a slip chain choker. The choker does continue to tighten the harder a dog pulls, but all dogs will eventually stop pulling if they are having trouble breathing. That is the underlying design concept of both collars. Similarly a prong collar does not choke, but causes discomfort and convinces the dog to stop what they too are doing. So why the emphasis on a martingale over either of the other two options I mentioned. Thanks in advance for the enlightening answers I hope to get.
