Taking your dog for a walk with just a normal collar or a choke chain can be very frustrating, especially if your dog loves pulling and is restless during walks. Prong collars are far much better for training and keeping dogs from unwanted behavior, such as pulling, tugging and knee-jerking. Contrary to popular belief that prong collars are cruel and ruthless, the prongs are designed not to injure or puncture the dog’s skin, but to create slight discomfort that will dissuade the canine from misbehaving. With a prong collar, you are also not likely to exert too much force when puling the leash, as is the case with normal collars and choke chains. Here are the best prong collars.
