Opinions vary, but I do believe that a prong collar is much safer than your conventional collars; especially when you have a dog that tugs and strains - it very effectively mitigates strain pressure thus protecting the throat.

Of course, I wouldn't use this collar on an 8-week old pup, but a 6-month old pup should be just fine, as long as it is fitted and used properly.
