Beautiful boy! I don't mean to be, "that person," but has someone shown you how to properly apply the prong/pinch collar? It's supposed to be much higher up than in your pictures and tighter. Of course it's only supposed to be used when training, needing corrections, etc...and you could have just added a few links because you weren't training. There is a great video on youtube about proper application of the pinch. I'll try and find it. And again, I mean absolutely no snarkiness or rudeness. I myself had no idea how to use a pinch or how it was supposed to be worn initially. Just wanted to let you know, in case you didn't .
