I've trained many dogs, and never ever used a prong collar.Should be a good fit, not sure why you you might feel the need for prong collars, if you are good enough at training there is no need for anything like that.
That being said, I have absolutely nothing against their use. I just think you shouldn't enter into training a puppy thinking that "at some point, a prong collar will be needed".
Or an ecollar for that matter! You have all these "professional" trainers online telling you that the "only" way to get 100% obedience off leash is with an ecollar.
Put simply, there's no such thing as 100% obedience. There are competing motivators! A dog will choose everytime, whether what you're asking versus what they're after means more! So yeah, you can crank up the shock and it will help some of the time. Not always though...nothing is 100% unless you shock the dog such that he/she cannot continue moving.
It's difficult to witness! And I personally don't ever recommend it. You know, to each their own, but my dog, with zero ecollar work, is 98% reliable off leash! I'm happy with that, and see no need to introduce an ecollar!
