    Great info and generally good video, but next time film on a
    quieter street so we don’t hear the cars roaring by every few
    seconds!

    Hello I have a 8 month old husky I have used regular collars choke chain
    and now that she is almost 60 pounds it hurts to walk her because she pulls
    so in the leash cuts my flesh I’ve tried using gloves and nothing is
    helping I try to walk her but I feel the pronged choke chain is my last
    chance because she can’t walk me I have to walk her plus huskies pull hard
    they pull sleds for many many miles what should I do please help

  • Kelly Becker says:

    Hey, take that off the innocent dog, and put that on yourself and pull
    HARD. I think you should choke yourself. You suck.

  • Ryan Martin says:

    Why is everyone so quick to hate on the prong collar, and yet the gentle
    leader caused the most stress to the dog?

  • Ashley Marie says:

    You could’ve removed some prongs to do properly.

  • barkingmadtraining says:

    It should be noted that only using an electronic collar for training rarely
    stops dog barking

    We just got a new Rottweiler (7 weeks) but my dad is too aggressive when it
    comes to her , she’s mean && is defient but my dad chokes her by her leash
    , and throws her in her cage if she like pees or poops inside the house .
    So today he introduced me to the choke chain & I think it is a
    terrifying/horrible Invention . If my dad walks her (queen)with that chick
    chain the way he did today he will end up hurt in her forever

    Hack! They should be outlawed and you should get certified!

    Great info from a super sexy gal!

  • Samantha Matas says:

    Enjoyed the video. I recently adopted an adult American Bull and the vet
    recommended a choke chain since he has no discipline. This video was
    helpful for to me to make a decision on which colar to buy. Thanks!

  • Canaan Roling says:

    only problem with gentle leader is when you have a dog who was muzzled
    inappropriatly they will not let you put a gentle leader on b/c it reminds
    them of traumatic experience. I also have never had to “sharp pull” with my
    choke collars. A well fit one you should still be able to do a gentle pull.

  • Sandra Skonning says:

    I can’t combine positively training with choke or prong collars.
    It’s not even near positively and for me it’s only a quick fix!
    Such a shame! :(

  • Savannah Pruitt says:

    I use a choke chain not for training but my puppy escapes from everything
    I’ve used! 

  • xNativeDreamsx says:

    Let me put a pinch collar around your neck and every time you try to go to
    the fridge I’m gonna pull on it…see how you like it.

    @Mr.J.Green
    Speaking from experience, a prong collar will be your best bet. It helped
    me a lot. I was surprized as to how much my dog stopped pulling.

  • blindcrackhead374 says:

    I use a gentle leader in combination with a choke chain jic she gets loose

  • Mileena Wins says:

    Sorry but the “gentle leader” seems the worst out of the three

  • chocol8dreamz says:

    There is no “regular” chain collars for dogs ???? Every collar I purchase
    for my dog he chews up. I’ve tried a regular collar, and a body harness
    …. Any suggestions ?

  • ciaraaXD says:

    what kind of dog is karma? My husband and i have a dog who looks very
    similar to this one but we were not informed what kind of dog he is and can
    not seem to figure his mix

    Thanks! It bothers me too. I’ve actually pulled over and taught people how
    to use them correctly if I’m out driving somewhere and I see them walking
    their dogs poorly. Hazards of being a trainer! lol
