At no time what so ever should that collar be pulled tugged towed and or janked on any dog at any time.

I can't stand that anyone would consider to use this training tool in this type of fashion. To be honest with you if I would catch you I would be the first one to put it around your neck and nail you or the person that was using it in such a way.

When I use the collar. It is used right. The collar is on the dog. I am walking foreward dog is forging I would give a slight check to the collar where as it would make a noise. And state heal or Fouse. If the dog choose to continue I would then leave the leash loose where as the dog would be at the end of the 6 foot lead I then turn to the right quickly and the dog then hits the end of the lead. Once this happens the dog realizes what has happened then the dog goes to catch up with me. Now if the dog does something out of the ordinary then I give him a quick check and then release.

I sincerly have a problem when people discuss a training tool that has been around longer than I have to state such a false hood. Not only that it is about getting the dogs attention and the dogs focus on the situation. Learn to get the dog to work on you and what you want from the dog. Rather than subjecting the dog to pain. That is not fair to any animal at any time.
whatever you say.

I see no problems with prong collars when used properly. But with my two dogs it just isn't necessary. Roxy already respects the leash and Hades, well, I don't think that would help his pulling problem at ALL. He has a very high pain tolerance, and would pull regardless of what I put on him.

I guess what we used to teach the heel was the method mentioned before. The "walk the other way tactic" but combined with a leash/verbal correction. Once they caught back up to me, "Oops! What happened Hades?!?! Where were you!!?!?!".

There are so many different ways to teach one thing to a dog.

And which method is "the best" varies from dog to dog.
