    UGH. Prong collars work because they hurt. They break the bond between you and your best friend and cause stress and fear that can exascerbate any aggression issues. This woman should be explaining why they're going out of style. Because they are a dangerous, unnecessary and cruel training modality. Try an Easy Walk harness instead. And love and treats and words. Look up The Loved Dog method. Or watch the documentary "Tough Love: A Meditation on Dominance & Dogs" that explains how outdated this wolf science is. Would you want this thing around your neck?

    I have an 80lbs Doberman who is intact and 18 months old and I only used Positive Reinforcement training and a flat collar on him and he is happy, compliant and consistent. Don't say it's the ONLY way to control a dog because that is a lie!

    The point of these collars is to teach them what not to do. Dogs play bite each other around the neck all the time, and teeth are much sharper than these prongs, so it's not like it hurts that bad. When you have a 70 pound doberman that is still in his puppy stage, this is about the only way to teach them how to stay under control. It's a bit of a poke, but much better than choke chains. Constant jerking of those will damage the trachea. What else can you do? Make the dog read a book? ha

    To everyone using a prong collar or choke chain:
    Try a front clip harness! It worked so well on my dog! And no pinching or choking involved!

    @Shanowl01 Children are not dogs and our dogs are not our children. Dogs are decendents of wolves and the prong collar mimics the bite a pack leader, mother dog or even puppies would use when establishing dominance or correcting unwanted behavior.

    Sorry, I commented on your post by accident when I intended to comment for Shanow|01 as well. I guess that's what happens when you're online at 2:30 in the morning.

    Dogs want and need to learn. In the pack this learning is done through the pack mentality of dominance and there is biting of the neck to give correction at times. The prong collar when used properly works on this same idea.
