|Syaoransbear||I like prong better. I just think mild pain makes more sense to the dog than asphyxiation. A lot of dogs I know will keep on pulling even though they are making choking noises. I end up just feeling really bad for them.|

I have had professional dog trainers not know how to properly use the prong. How old is the dog in question? Is it the puppy?
The prong is a great training tool when used properly but typically you the approach where the dog pulls you walk the opposite direction..........meaning walks are not walks but rather training sessions until the dog gets the idea of not pulling.

Before just putting your dog in a prong, get some training on how to properly use it (fit, timing of correction, etc). It will greatly benefit you and your dog.
It's not the same concept as a choke, the prong is an all over correction where I believe the choke is centred on a certain area.
Just remember that neither is a soultion rather a tool to get your ultimate end goal.

Training - no matter what collar!

|Finnick<3||My boy had been pulling like a freight train so our trainer had me start using the Premier Gentle Leader. Initially he only stopped pulling when he was wearing it. I then started working a lot on the "watch me" command with lots of rewards. That's when I saw his pulling begin to subside. Within two weeks we started to enjoy walks together without the Gentle Leader. Now his focus is on me instead of getting where we are going.|
