The collar should be very snug and high on the neck, basically just behind the ears with the active ring just under the right ear. Properly fitted it will not slip down and properly fitted you will not need to "pop" the dog since it will self correct if you're holding the leash in the correct position - just use quick turns to refocus the dog and mark the behavior you like with a "YES!" and then a food reward or the tug or praise (if you tug put some slack in that leash so the prong doesn't engage!)
