    General Training & Obedience

  4. Prong collar for puppy?

    Puppy Corner
    Hi all :) Khaleesi is now just a little over 5 months old. She was a breeze on the lead up until about a month ago. We would spray her with a water bottle if the lead got tight and gently tug back whilst giving a correction of "no". Now she will sometimes flinch if you say no as she thinks...

    Does anyone in here have an opinion on the pronged training collar. I am trying to train my dobe to walk nicely on the leash so he can be manageable. I can barely walk him, my wife can not if he decides to pull. Its an incredible workout but no fun. I have heard some say its cruel, and...
