Not at all. No offense taken. Just curious. I understand some people don't like them. Every tool has good and bad - especially in the wrong hands. I have to take Boh to get him fitted. (Sure I could fit him myself, but I guess some people have never used them before.) Anyway, I am anxious to try it on Boh. Believe me, if I see anything I don't like about it with him, I won't use it. Actually, the trainer said that the prong is preferable, but the slip or martingales are optional. I will definitely let you know how it goes.

Boh is a terrible puller and it seems he is more wound up on the way home from his walks. I had surgery in August, with a 12 week recovery time. I still have restrictions and my next follow-up is in April. I'm sure my surgeon would have a fit if she knew my pup was pulling me all over the place. Not great for my innards. HA!

Thanks! She is a handful but so darn cute! Rescued her when she was about 2. She is about 8 now.

We used the choke chain in our obedience class..I still have some trouble with it. I'm using a car harness which works pretty well. It doesn't pull on her neck as the hook is on her back. I've sure had some painful arms and shoulders from the pulling otherwise.

A friend of ours who has a lot of experience with hunting dogs adviced us to use prog collar. We use chain prong collar and it does not seem to bother Badugi. He is pretty good with walking with us anyways...except for the times he finds some other cats or dogs attractive and wants to play with them LOL
