Gwenhwyfair Yup. That's usually how it goes. I'll give someone respect if they actually have results to back up their rant, but most often they don't.

Really, someone with a poorly behaved lunging at the end of the leash dog lecturing others about training methods, well that's just another form of insanity.

BTW - folks like you need to start pushing back on these anti-prong/e collar people in your country. They aren't going to give up because clearly most of them aren't using their time to actually train their dogs, rather they are working very hard to get bans placed on tools people like you use responsibly.

The only way to stop that is to not be silent.

SusiQ I've used a prong for years and never had anyone comment on it. As others have stated, it's self-correcting and I've never had to "yank" on my dog.

The prong keeps him from hurting himself. It's self correcting. I don't need to yank on it. The only handler correction he's gotten from it was from the trainer.

Kudos for you for even listening and saying ok, I wouldn't even listen.

It made me so mad as my dog is looked after so much better then alot of the locals around here. We even have one couple who feed their dog a vegan diet, but they never get judged for it.

Sooo angry right now!
I don't use a prong, however, I don't think they're cruel. Some dogs reply to only positive reward, some need a slight correction. They're not clones. A prong is sometimes the right correction, it doesn't hurt the dog anymore than any other collar unless a fair amont of pressure is applied, then it's pinch and release. It's a correction only, much like a dog pack.

I wouldn't pay attention to them, you're doing what the dog understands. Unlike a vegan diet. Dogs are carnivores.

Maybe let the dog bite them? Kidding.
