EXACTLY! Ill be the first to admit I use and love my pinch collar. Anna is extremely dominant around other dogs (I currently do OB with 3 separate groups who specialize in working dogs) and I would LOVE to see an all positive trainer work with Anna when she wants to destroy another female dog next to her, I spend weeks trying to fix this problem with food and toys....the prong collar stopped it then and there.

I also don't understand then- if military and police are allowed to use them and general public is not...that seems a bit hypocritical to me. Why is it ok for them but not ok for someone doing SCH?

@Liz&Anna,

I think that instead of full on banning them they should have free education explaining to people the positives and negatives of the prong or e collar training tools. You are right, sometimes people dont use them correctly and it makes a situation worse, but as i said before they exist because they work, not because they dont.

Also one size does not fit everyone...positive puppies may work for 9 out of 10 dogs, 1000 treats falling out of your pockets is fine but some dogs need more, i dont think anyone can deny that, no matter who they are,

Based on bad science and driven by pet trainers and AR activists that have never worked a dog a day in their life.

The wrong people are shouting the loudest.

It's sad I feel bad for the people there who may have a reactive dog that could have been helped, and that may now suffer because other methods aren't capturing the dogs attention

Agreed, sounds more like a easy way to make 600.00.
