Question about training

Panda is enrolled in dog training and he is doing fantastically well! Today was his first class and he was much better then the rest of the dogs which I was REALLY surprised about. Im very proud of him he actually got comfortable enough where he was laying like a froggy on the floor with at least 10 dogs around him! Im not sure if this is because there was SO many other dogs that he couldn't just focus on one, but he was not lunging or pulling at any of them, but when its just one dog he goes crazy?

My question is, I use a prong collar on him and it works very well with him but it makes his neck turn red and it's easy to see because he's white, and I do not want him to start having hair loss there. Do you think it would be a better decision to try using a choke collar? I don't know if it would be quite as effective?

Any opinions will be very appreciated!

I think they sell covers for prongs. One might help out with the redness.

if your dogs neck is red your are not use a prong that is properly fitted and the correct size. don't put rubber tips on it or you might as well not use a prong, they make the collar worthless.

You need a small prong collar a Size 14" and add links if you need too, next you have to fit it properly. It must be very tight and fit right underneath the jaw line of the dog and not slide down. You must barley be able to do the clasp for it to stay in position. Then when you make a correction you can make on that counts. I see dogs all the time come in for obed lessons and the prong collars are not the right size and not fitted correctly. If you do not have a proper fit the collar will rub the neck raw and be less effective. Now I am sure it works ok but try this and and you will see a big difference.
When he looks at another dog as soon as it happens you need to say no and pop up on his collar, and a good correction his little front feet should leave the ground. A few of those and he will think twice of mouthing off at other dogs.
This is a proper fit and really it could go up higher in her neck it might have one link too many but see how high it is and how small it is? That is what you need, most people get these large or med prongs but they do not work as well as the smaller ones for aggression issues.

no a choke collar will just do that choke him not correct him. 99% of pet dog owners do not use slip chains correctly. If the slip chain is tight other than making a correction you are using it wrong, if the dog is choking at all it is being used wrong. Use a prong but a smaller properly fit prong and you should be good. Again the rubber tips make the collars worthless.
