    I had never heard of Cesar Milan until joining this forum. Now I have some idea of who he is and don't have to sit here going when the name is mentioned haha.

    It sure does look freaken feisty, bloody cruel & barbaric

    IMO those things should be used around the necks of any owner or dog trainer that uses them on dogs.

    Give them a taste of their own cruel medicine & see if they like it.

    The idea is...if it is used PROPERLY...it is less harmful than a check chain.

    A prong collar, well......
    You see those sticky-outy bits? When the collar is tightened(by the lead) those pointy bits pinch onto the loose skin on the neck, its used to 'train' polite walking as it causes pain, or as the uses of the collar like to call it 'discomfort'. I think there are better devises you can use to train a dog to walk nicely.

    I wonder how many people who use slip/choke collars have tried them on themselves first.

    It's hard to imagine the prong collar ever being appropriate, but I think the electric collar has its place when used properly and minimally. I'm a huge fan of electric fences too. Much better the animal learns to stay away from the fence than get tangled up in the wire trying to reach the grass on the other side.

    I imagine the prong collar could be similar in effect to spurs on horses - there are different sorts of those but the accepted sort are blunt but provide a lot of pressure. Personally I never felt I had enough control of my ankles when riding to use them properly. And usually a stick or whip carried in my boot was enough to ensure mostly good behaviour from my horse. I never needed to actually use it.

    Actually, many dog trainers who use choke and prong collars get owners to try them on themselves first. I don't need to use a prong collar with Keeda, but am not against them for dogs who can get a benefit from them. Some owners with dogs who have sensitive necks turn the collars inside out or put rubber ends on the prongs. Unlike a slip collar, the prong collar has a limit to how much it can tighten and cannot "pinch" a dog with unlimited pressure as a slip collar can. When used properly, they cause discomfort - not pain.

    No, but you can buy their books which are great, and not expensive (even cheaper on e-bay) or check their websites and even contact them via email.
