The dog club trainer doesn't like choke collars. He uses fur savers on the dead ring and then clipped onto another ring so the collar doesn't slip over the head.
Kaleb's martingale fits him now. We have been using that one for basic obedience and the fur saver for club training.

I put a choker on Babs today. Usually, I let the little girls walk her with a flat collar. I showed them the choke chain, called it a choke chain, and they were horrified, and asked me why.
I then put the choke chain on the little girl's wrist and gave it a tug -- she is not as whimpy as the guy who put it on his leg. But whatever. I explained how to thread it and why, and turned it over and explained how it works if it is on the wrong way. And then I put it on Babs and had her walk Babs to the park.
She doesn't need the choker, but I had it handy, and I thought it was a golden opportunity to explain it to the girls.
I don't want to think about what one or both of those girls would do to me if I showed them a prong collar and thent tried to put it on Babsy. They are working toward their belts in some form of karate, and they pack quite a bit of punch for critters that weigh about half what my GSDs do.
And a couple of years ago when I showed them Robin Hood, the first scene where Much the Miller's son kills the deer, well that did it for them. They thought the good guys were the bad guys throughout the movie, and only the Maid Marion falling in love with Robin Hood salvaged a little of it. "How rude." No prong collars for the little girls. It would be way rude.

|llombardo||For training I use both together. The choke is about 2 inches bigger then his neck and I connect it to the prong. It's my back up if he gets out of the prong. Most if the time he has a regular flat collar on. I have never used the choke collar on its own.|

doggiedad - I think you're misreading the post. newtexas said he/she put the prong and choke on his/her OWN legs, not the dog's legs (and if it turns out that I'm the one who misread, and the collars DID go on the dog's legs, then newtexas is insane).

how old was your dog when he was in training classes?
what did you use a prong or a choker? in the training
classes i've attended a prong or a choker wasn't allowed
on a pup.

i fail to see the humor in putting a prong or a choker on a dog's
leg to see which one hurts more. duh.

putting a prong and a choker on your dog's leg is abusive.
