I just tried out a prong on our morning walk for my boy. I have to say, his pulling was nicely self-corrected, but everything else, meh. He would correct himself on a slip-choke, although it did take a little more management on my part. I still had just as much control as I did with a slip, so I don't know whether or not it is necessary. He decided to pull ahead once, and I gave him a quick jerk, and he YELPED SO LOUD, I feel terrible about that!
Is a prong just not necessary for some of your dogs? I really feel like I could forego it completely and just stick with a slip. Not to mention, when he shakes himself off, it slips down and is a real nuisance to get fixed!
