Good luck.
Your post about e-collars & prongs got me a bit confused. Then I realized you thought e-collar meant the post surgery cone. Right?
By e-collar, this poster was talking about shock collars, not surgery cones! 😥

Different collar names

Gee, it sounded like to me the person was talking about prong and surgical collars, e collars. I had not understood they were speaking about shock collars. So are shock collars referred to as prong collars? I thought a shock collar delivered electrical impulses.

I did get the part about the staining of choke chains.


What is the best type of harness to use? I am concerned about using a harness because of where it sits underneath a dog’s armpits and could injure them by pulling on those sensitive areas.

Prong collars and e collars were not the top on my list for training my dog. However with my boy positive reinforcement didn’t work. He started putting himself in situations that were dangerous to himself. Like one example busting out the door as my roommate was trying to leave, and taking off down the street.

While these collars were my last options for training with him they are necessary and my guy is smart enough were I only need to use the e collar once and he learns. I also put the collar on myself and give myself a shock before putting it on him, I figure we are in this together so, idk, while I understand why people don’t like these collars they are really needed for situations.

I like ruffwear harnesses.
