Prong collars are very powerful tools, and using one could benefit you and your dog. Before I get into this topic, let me address the elephant in the room. These are powerful tools. If you are new to dog training or using a leash and a collar, I cannot recommend this tool for you and your dog. However, that doesn’t mean that you should avoid learning about this tool.

It’s been my experience that learning how to utilize this tool could help you make some breakthroughs in your training.
