There was a study where like 48 out of 49 dogs had damage from a choke collar while only 1 or 2 had damage from a prong collar over years of use. You need a flat collar for tie outs. Also choke chains are terrible for sensitive skin.

You have a prong collar.

prong collars should NOT be able to be fully attached and still be able to slip over the dogs head (like a choke collar would). you will need to attach on and off every time for proper fitting.

A dog will not care about food if he is over his threshold. Once a dog reaches the point of acting out, its too late, food did nothing for my dog and most dogs will ignore food, even super high value stuff, until you put enough distance between what they are focused on. Also when he is in the CRAZY REACTIVE state, you don't want to REWARD that crazy unacceptable behavior until he starts bring it down a notch. Rewarding during bad behavior encourages bad behavior.

I neutered him, put him on a diet because he gained weight and he was a little bit more interested in food, but like clockwork he would get riled up and then react. Neutering will NOT cure his issues, but it WILL help an inexperienced owner get their dog to focus on training more because testosterone is out of the equation. Your dog will also mark less, but not stop entirely unless you train him. My dog used to react when a dog was a football field away. Its hard to distance yourself further than that distance already so i went the corrective training route. I make all his decisions, my dog is horrible at making them on his own. I do not allow my dog to go the bathroom on walks he hasn't earned the right to make that decision, he goes when I tell him to go. I do not let my dog lead, I would change course, you turn, cross streets and hide in peoples driveways or behind cars anything i could when I started working with my dog to change his behaviors. I can now walk him by dogs with about a 5-10 foot radius without him trying to go towards them. He RARELY gets so worked up he doesn't listen anymore. It took a lot of hard work and PATIENCE but it is possible. You need to find someone to help you learn the proper way to mange his reactions.

I've heard that choke chains were originally designed so that the dog associates the sound of the chain tightening to the choking that comes right after. They hear the sound and should know what happens after and stop. Anyway, try hotdogs - our dog doesn't care about other treats but he goes CRAZY over hot dogs. They even have bacon filled ones if regular wont work.

Good luck!

Dogs will associate the sound so much that after a time you can toss a choker on the ground for a correction. They make small chains with a weight on them for just that purpose.
