Why Prong Collars?
Prong collars are a very good training tool and if used properly do not harm the dog. If you have ever walked a hard puller on a leash you know how hard it is to correct.
The amount of force you have to use on their necks will usually send them into a coughing/choking fit. The prong collars allow us to use very minimal pressure to correct the dog. Each dog is introduced to the collars very slowly and gently the entire first day. The collars are much gentler that a slip lead or flat collar.
Very quickly the dogs associate the collars with doing fun things so we always get a wagging tail when we put them on.
