Blue was like "what the hell is that!?" 😂
We're just doing a little leash training. Pinch/prong collars are NOT my go to method of training and they don't work for every dog. It was my last resort and was the only thing Blue responded to. Also, I added rubber tips to each prong so that it is a little gentler for sensitive dogs. ( if they don't respond you can remove the tips) Prong collars aren't bad but they tend to be over used and most of the time they are not used properly. But when used properly they can work great for some dogs. 😉 I originally tried nylon trading collars, gentle leads, etc. and nothing worked for her. She responded to this right away and will make direct eye contact when she is corrected. ( which is a huge thing to look for when training) Seelo does well with prong collars also and won't respond to any other method. Jasmine on the other hand does not respond with regular collars but does well with a gentle lead ( the one that goes on the muzzle ) Again every dog is different. There is no such thing as a miracle training method, you just have to see what works for your dog. I always use prong collars as a last resort. I recommend trying a regular nylon collar ( for all collar types.. never pull the dog.. gentle tugs.. when the dog responds release pressure. ) if that doesn't work than try a nylon training collar known as "martingale" collar. If that doesn't work try a gentle lead.. and if that doesn't work use a prong collar. Please make sure it is sized properly for your dog.. the prongs should not be digging into the dogs neck. You want it a little loose so that in only applies pressure when you correct. Now.. if your dog doesn't respond then you can remove a couple links so that it fits more snug. Helpful hint when using prong collars... before putting in on your dog.. put the prong collar inside out so that the prong are facing outward, then slip it over your dogs head and put in right side out. This is for safety, incase the dog moves you don't want to poke their eye. Also.. I am only using the prong collar as a trading method in this case. Once Blue is leash trained I will switch her to something else.
