    What size is that one there and how old is your lab

    • The Canine Nutritionist

      Sham Best Choke and prong collars are still extremely popular with many dog owners. They are generally made of metal chain material which tightens around a dog’s neck when the handler pulls or jerks back on the leash. Aversive trainers will often use choke and prong collars to perform ‘corrections’, essentially causing the dog pain any time he pulls on the leash or misbehaves.

      While this type of training may stop the pulling or suppress a certain behavior at that particular moment, it does nothing to address the root of the dog’s issue. Leash corrections that are given on these collars exacerbate behavioral issues such as fear and aggression.

    Choke and prong collars are designed to punish dogs for pulling by inflicting pain and discomfort. They can cause serious physical and emotional damage to dogs and should never be used.

    So unhumane

    The idea with choke chains is that when the chain tenses up ie; the dog pulls, then that is YOUR CUE when walking them, to either stop and call them back to your side or change direction entirely. You must NEVER return the pull, use any sharp jerking movements or allow yourself to get dragged by the dog. The chain must not stay tense for longer than a couple of seconds because if it does then injury can occur.

  6. If I’m walking the dog on my right do I make a q?

    • Doug H. in VA

      no…. all trainers know that a slip lead (chain or fabric rope) has the attachment end come out of the ring at the top…. not underneath. that lets the lead release when tension is relaxed.

    Choke collars are great! You do NOT repeat NOT hold it shut for more than a fraction of a second. Think of it as reins for a dog. Furthermore, it’s the quickest way to get him off lead and into hand signals. You’re establishing that you are the alpha dog – which they actually love – it gives them peace & serenity because they always know where they are supposed to be & what they’re supposed to be doing. GREAT for working & hunting dogs – they love and crave to learn.

      Reggie Jugovich I’ve given up trying to explain how these collars work. Some people believe in their own ignorance so much that they will not listen to reason. If used the proper way these don’t harm the dog but as long as there are people who don’t know what they are doing, don’t learn from a professional, there will always be naysayers. Believe it or not, there are still people who believe the world is flat…..

    Lazy cocksucker,let me put that Choker on you.

    there’s so much judgement around a use of a choke chain. Is there any harness or collar for large dogs that pull a lot that one can use and won’t get negatively judged for it?

  13. The Canine Nutritionist

    Choke and prong collars are designed to punish dogs for pulling by inflicting pain and discomfort. They can cause serious physical and emotional damage to dogs and should never be used.

    The use of choke collars has been associated with whiplash, fainting, spinal cord injuries leading to paralysis, crushing of the trachea with partial or complete asphyxiation, crushing and/or fracture of the bones in the larynx, dislocated neck bones, bruising of the esophagus, bruising and damage to the skin and tissues in the neck, brain damage and prolapsed eyes caused by sharp increases in pressure in the head, and other injuries.

    The metal spikes of prong collars pinch the skin around dogs’ necks when they pull and can scratch or puncture them. Over time, this can cause dogs to develop scar tissue (which has no feeling) and/or build up a tolerance to the painful pinching sensation and thus continue to pull, making walks even more difficult. Dogs may interpret the tightening of a choke or prong collar around their neck as a stranglehold (which it is, after all!) and become fearful or even aggressive.

    The most humane and safest option for walking a dog who tends to want to pull is a front-leash attachment harness, such as the Sense-ation. When dogs lunge or pull while wearing the Sense-ation harness, the front leash attachment redirects them back toward the dog walker. With patience and positive reinforcement, walks can be a pleasant experience for both human and dog.
