I train dogs with prong collars. There are very few dogs that I would not train with a prong collar. I recommend them to new dog owners, new trainers and people who own dogs with behavioral problems. While some think a prong looks nasty the fact is they are far more humane than a normal choke collar.
It's important that customers measure their dogs to determine what size muzzle a dog needs. Some muzzles are identified as breed specific, this is not an accurate way to determine what muzzle your dog needs. Dogs within a specific breed can have a wide variety of head measurements. It is impossible to say that one muzzle size fits all Rottweilers or one muzzle size fits all Dobermans or one muzzle size fits all Cocker Spaniels.
People whose dogs learn to break out of crates often purchase the more expensive aluminum dog crates. They do this thinking these crates are more secure and will solve their problem. To an extent this is true and it works because these dogs are not going to get out of the aluminum crates. But some dogs (that have gotten out of a number of crates in the past) they actually become so wound up and crazy in their attempt to get out of these crates that they hurt themselves.
This article is about the evolution of training methods for using remote collars to deal with dog aggression. The article is not about teaching people how to establish stimulation levels or how to condition a dog to remote collars.
I bought my first electric collar in 1979. It was a Tri Tronics Pro 100 that cost $1,000.00. Today that collar is the model-T ford of remote collars.
More dogs are put to sleep everyday for aggression problems than they are properly trained. Killing a dog must ALWAYS be the last resort. Learning how to use a dominant dog collar can and will often make the difference between having a dog put down or ending up as a pack leader and a dog the you can live with.
When people get a new dog, they know they need a leash and collar. But first time dog owners never start with a prong collar. Fact is: the subject of a prong collar only comes up if a behavioral problem develops. Then, a friend or local dog trainer tells them they need a prong.
