Oh Ames me too! I am so tired of this crap weather. When we lived in Washington State it was so miserable. I hope I don't offended anyone, but I don't know why ANYONE would EVER choose to love there. (It was beautiful, as a place to visit...not to live)

I use both! But for my dogs I prefer the harness because the prong makes me a little nervous.. the last time I used it on my male, he nearly got out of the thing trying to go after a dog. So since then I have just let him pull me on his harness.

Good point BB, I always back my prong up with a slip/choke chain. I've had a prong just drop off bob once while at an event with over 500 other people around. Lucky I noticed before he did or that would have been a mess

Yep another time I had the bullsnap on my leash slip right off it too... the little ring on the prong was just narrow enough and slipped right off. Scared the bejesus out of me! Luckily the dog didn't know what happened! haha

I have used both, for me it just depends on the dog. I use a back up method for both though. When I'm using the prong I also have a flat buckle collar on the dog that is connected to the prong with a clip for security, I used to do it a little differently until someone taught me the clip idea (think it was Ames). I also use a flat buckle collar when I use the front clip harness, that way I can hook one end of the leash to the harness and the other end to the collar.

I also have had a couple scares with the prong collar, they like to just fall right off at the worst times!

when i do training i've replaced my choke collar with a tiny flat slip lead like this one.
It does the job and i dont have to worry about any pinching or hairloss

Totally agree on that one! I do a fail safe as well, so if the prong snaps the collar is still attached. Getting a good prong is also key. I like the prongs by herm sprenger.

I am sure you can just get a longer chain or something to attach the two with a harness and flat buckle collar if you don't want to carry 2 leashes.

No they are not the same. And you should know what you are doing with every training tool. You can really screw your dog up using any training tool incorrectly. A choke is a small chain around the neck similar to a slip lead. A prong is what I posted above it's got little prongs that poke the dog like a finger saying hey pay attention if he doesn't walk proper.

Spend the money for some training sessions with a professional to learn how to properly fit and use the collar... trust me the $40 or so will be well worth it!! Tools are only half of the battle. If you dont fit or implement them correctly you're only going to hurt the dog and set yourself back further.

Choke collars aren't for me, I would be to afraid of injuring the dog. But I also don't know what I am doing. I have been working with Roxy to get her to look at me and it is going so good. Thank you all for the advice and help. These dogs sure are smart little cookies.

I used to never really use the prong or choke collars....just a wide collar or harness can do the trick. However, I have learned to actually like the prong collars! (Still dont like choke chains) I occasionally use a prong on my female Pyra and it has worked really well. Like Ames said they need to be used right. I also do the same thing as Ames, I secure it so that if it snapped the dog isn't getting away. Love the pics Ames posted because it shows what happens if it snaps
