I understand the use of smaller prongs versus larger ones. So, as a follow-up question for those who are NEW to a prong collar: Is there value in using the medium prongs (versus small) in order to make the handler's corrections or small 'pops' to the dog LESS intense. Is having a slightly LESS intense correction better for a person new to a prong collar so that they can 'graduate' to smaller links as they get more skill? I have noticed that most folks over-correct and are 'late' on collar corrections, so perhaps a less intense sensation to the dog might be better while learning, preferably with a skilled trainer involved?
