I don't think either of these tools are meant for permanent use. Both are used for training purposes only. If the dog is fine on the prong, when will it be fine without it. Do people actually use a prong for the lifetime of a dog? Is the e collar used forever? Please forgive my questions, I do not use either of these tools
How long does one use these tools for training and if its for a long duration of time, is the dog really trained at all? I guess what I'm saying is that if for example(as someone else wrote) the dog is off lead and an e collar is used so that dog doesn't chase wildlife, how long does the collar have to be used before the dog is actually trained not to chase wildlife without the collar?
