    I think it because it can be done.
    If they're ethical they will fist notify the web site manager/owner but if they say no it realy doesn't matter.
    Pretty much,if its posted out there on the wide world web then its easy pickings.
    I found this out by going through many avenues and bothering many people not that long ago if you remember.

    But you can't post to anywhere else unless you give credit to the owner.

    No, it's not you, Occy. Perhaps a few prong collars could come in handy?

    I don't think they come in suppositories

    Sometimes threads need to be derailed so that they don't continue to be inflammatory IMO

    Ive had a dog that would get so excited to be out, he'd jump around upwards, sideways, behind us. It would take him to the end of the lane to 'settle'.
    My arm was getting yanked out of my shoulder. And it hurt me.
    Therefor, id of happily used a spike collar a go. (to be honest, the pain on having my arm wrenched out of my shoulder, id of used a shotgun happily at times).
    In the end, stopping when he pulled, stopped it for me. Not for the rest of the family though, he'd still act like a plonker and pull. For the rest of the family, we used a gentle leader. He did react badly to it, hated it, for about 20 mins. Then shut the hell up and got on with the walk.
    We now have a 14 wk German Shepherd. Still at the 'right at my side' stage of walking. But whilst ive tried, flat collars, electric collars, gentle leaders, my choice for this pup?
    When he pulls, i stop method. Simple, gentle, uses the dogs desire to go walkies to learn real quick.

    Personally I have used a majority of the tools mentioned here.

    I feel all have a place if used correctly.

    I personally will not used a GL/Halti or similar on my dog as she shuts down and will not move despite all efforts on our part. But I have used it with some success on other dogs...

    I find a Correction chain, If used correctly, will be effective.

    I have used a Power Collar on my girl, One of the only tools I have used that works effectively and without me having to use excessive force on the correction.
    I have been able to now go back to the correction chain and the lessons she learnt on the Power Collar has carried over to the correction chain.

    My aim is to get my dog to a stage where I can just have her on a flat collar but it is a long... way off yet.

    I feel with dog training you need to have an open mind as one tool may work on this dog, but the next dog the tool will not work on...

    I'm a newbie here, but wouldn't praising and encouraging the puppy to remain at your side until he/she is older then phase out the treats? If puppy does pull, stop and call him/her back to you, guide to the correct position and start again?

    I hope this works as this is one of the ways I plan to try with my new little boy!

    I tend to keep a very open mind to a lot of different training options. I am a pet sitter and see a lot of animals treated in less than desirable ways particularly when they are doing something wrong. I am a very firm believer in that old saying "don't knock it 'till you try it". I have seen some amazing dogs who have been trained using a prong collar, and some absolute b*****ds trying to do horrible things to dogs using the GL's and Halti's... The worst was a Pomeranian being forced to heel with it's poor little head being dragged straight up in the air... At least you can't do that with a prong!

    Like some others here I have put on the prong and a check chain and I far prefer the prong!! It hurts so much less than the check chain! I wouldn't touch a GL or Halti if someone paid me to, it's not worth the risk to my dogs health and well being.

    Just wanted to throw in my 2 cents... Now I'm off to figure out where to introduce myself!
