I like what DJEtzel was saying about his method, but I wanted to add that if your dog is a hard puller, a flat collar puts the most pressure on the throat. Martingales, slip collars, and prongs distribute the pressure of the pull around the entire neck, and harnesses generally put all of the pressure on the chest. Now since he's a young puppy, he's probably not strong enough to do any serious damage (especially since you're working on training him) but I just figured I'd throw that out there just in case
