    Look, I, think that there are better alternatives(and dont you dare ask what that alternative is) and I think those 'alternatives' should be tried out before the prong collar. I don't think I would use a prong collar, no matter what situation I was in. But I am ok with other using it, as long as they have tried everything else and no how to use it and arn't going to get frustrated and continuously yank on the collar. Which I have seen the affects of.

    Yes, that's right - I remember you telling me about it now, and the reasons you use it.

    If the harness didn't work for Zed, I was going to try the halti next. But well...not now, hey?

    I agree with you there, Aussiemyf. I certainly wouldn't make it my first choice. I'd probably make it my last, if at all, as prior to this I've never seen them before, and have absolutely no experience with using them, ra ra ra...

    I have seen a lot of owners use check chains incorrectly, though. Yanking and pulling as if they are trying to take the dogs head off at the throat! I agree they are also VERY dangerous when used by those who do not know how to use them.

    Gentle Leader and Haltis are two seperate things!

    This is a GENTLE LEADER.

    I agree...there is a time for any tool. I don't necessarily think that prong collars should be last option tools...it all depends on the situation. I think it often ends up as the last option tool when people contact Steve and say "thats it...I've had it! My dog is aggressive towards other dogs...I can't take it anywhere and it pulls me down the street...I want it fixed and I want it fixed yesterday"...if you get my drift

    We can all say...I would NEVER use something like that...it is barbaric...disgusting and medieval. But if it came down to...prong collar and training or putting your dog down due to whatever reason...what would you honestly choose?

    As I said in my post re Boris, it was shoot him or try the despised electric collar.
