Prong collar • question ...

What exactly does a prong collar do ? I was told it hurts the dog to make them walk right is that true ? I was also told it helps a dog walk correctly so they won't pull .

My 5.5 month old Mila , is starting to pull when I walk her she's getting pretty strong . I was a harness to walk her . My boyfriend wants to get her a prong collar but I'm kind of weary about it . Will a prong collar help for her not to be pulling when I walk her ?

prong collars don't hurt the dog to make them stop pulling, they give a sharp correction which is uncomfortable, is it painful? maybe to an extent but the they way you are describing it makes it seem worse than it is. However a 5 months old puppy is pretty young have you tried just putting like a martingale collar and correction with that? I would try that first. It's like a prong but without the prongs!

Harnesses only teach dogs how to pull. What you need to do is find a martingale that fits, it needs to fit like the first picture and for pits many times the head is bigger than the neck. You put it on then tighten it on the neck so when you correct it makes a correction. Next you need to pop the leash when she tries to pull. Keep the leash loose and pop. I have a video of a dog I was evaluating and he is on a martingale leash combo but watch especially after the two min mark when I start to give pops on the leash to get his attention. This is how you make a correction. Now this dog started to not care about the corrections when he say another dog so I did put him on a prong collar but this is an adult dog not a 5 month old puppy. I bet if you make some good correction she'll be better.

I agree with PK, if you start on a martingale now, and do not let your dog dictate your walks she should develop some great walking skills and habits now while she is young. she should follow your lead and walk, and stop when you stop. She should be behind or beside you all the time. You should never let her walk tight against the end of the leash, ever. she should walk beside or behind you without tugging. I made the mistake of letting my dog dictate where we went, I dint care how far we got we were out for an hour. Now I realize how bad a habit that was. He needs structured walks and needs to know I make the decisions and not him. It will take a little while to get your dog on board walking properly, but it will be so worth it in the end.
