i dont actually think i have ever seen one for sale in the uk let alone anyone use them..they intrigue me though as to theri effectiveness..youve prbably been asked this before but is any pain involved..or is it just slight discomfort?

i think if i went out in public with a prong on my dog here i would get battered by old ladies with their handbags lol.

I use a Canny collar which are amazing.. i have tried the halti and a harness but it was a complete distaser. When i put this on Harvey i had the most well behaved dog in the town.. he walks to heel and doesnt pull and gives me a full control over him..it has helped dramatically when training harvey to walkalongside. You can get them shipped to the u.s ..

heres the website~ with vids etc showing the difference it makes to the dogs walking behaviour before and after :)

Hey Twink :)
I am looking at the canny collar now and it is interesting. I can see how it would work very well to correct pulling without discomfort or risk of injury to the dog. My question is, do you have a problem with the nose loop slipping off if his lead is loose and he's sniffing around?
i usually just keep the lead alittle taught when he bends down to sniff..if it slips off though they still cant go anywhere as they are still attached by the collar and lead. I found with the dobes as they have a longer muzzel it rarely slips off .Its only happended the once with Harv..but i really havent heard anyone have a major problem with them atall ..for Harvey i got the size 3 when he was younger but now i have just bought the size 4 which will last him the rest of his life.

I cannot praise it enough..its great for jogging and in crowds as you have full control and they cannot run ahead or drag you.

Did you watch the videos..they take awhile to load but really show the difference :)

Dont woryy im another rambler when it comes to posting ..that rotties gorgeous isnt he..so well behaved :D the main reason i chose the canny was becasue it fastened behind the head and the way it was designed and a plesure for both of us to use ..i defiantly wouldnt swap if your girls doing so well on a loose lead ~ i would love to get harvey to do that he getting so much training at the moment i think that would tip him over the edge lol ..hes pretty good on a lead the canny just great for public outings as i have greater control :)
