it is actually an ancient thing, it was used for guardian dogs to protect against wolves, I have seen photos of Kangals and Anatolians that are still the true to type dogs being used by the tribes in thier homeland wearing them, but theirs look more like reversed prong collars.

Though I do agree the modern ones are for tough guys only (not sure if there is a sarchastic smiley).
