Pet Collars and Harnesses that do not choke dogs and cats
Lifeunion No Choke Dog Comfortable Harness and Heavy Duty Dog Training Walking Collar Vest Harness (XL, Black)
I recently adopted a 5 year old English Bulldog. She is a behavioral disaster. She was only ever taught sit, only ever walked on a harness and I’m fairly certain has never been told no. Today I picked up a pong collar for her, got it adjusted and went to walk her a bit. When I told her to sit, she was given a small correction (she knows sit and knows the expectations for the command) when she didn’t sit. At which point she reached back and managed to get the buckle on the leash in her mouth and proceeded to gator roll! She ripped up her mouth, I assume from biting her own cheeks, choked herself, but refused to let go of her leash! I have never ever had this happen before and I worked as a trainer during college and have a behavioral psych degree, so I am not a total noob. I am however dumbfounded. Any thoughts on this?
Hi Jeff – I have been watching quite a few of your videos – I have never had issues with prong collars, although your descriptions and examples have made me appreciate them even more – I especially like knowing that they give even pressure around the neck – I know so many dogs who choke on flat collars. I have a 5 month old lab – she is a sweetheart, not a mean bone in her body. But she is a bit of an alpha. Likes to challenge and test a lot. I just purchased the herm sprenger collar and tried it on her today. Definitely made a huge difference on her pulling. But when we were inside and doing a bit of work, she decided to flop herself down on the floor and roll around, trying to avoid the collar and my corrections – I wasn’t quite sure what to do, as I didn’t want to correct too hard and actually harm her. I ended up scooping her up and placing her back in a sitting position and tried to move on from there. She fought it a bit longer, but then gave in. Would you say this is the right protocol or should I have done something different? Thank you for all the information you put out there. I have a friend who put down a highly anxious dog, and I feel if she had known more about prong collars, he might have been saved.

Choke Collars ~ Nobody will ever put a choke collar on one of my dogs
Typically made of metal, a prong collar sits loosely around your dogs neck but when the leash is pulled, the collar tightens, apply pressure to the dogs neck. It’s important to note that a prong collar is not a choke collar or choke chain, it doesn’t restrict a dogs breathing. Prong collars have a limit on how much they can tighten, so they don’t restrict your dog’s airway when properly sized.One advantage to limited slip collars is that even though they won’t choke, they can still stop your dog from backing out of its collar. These collars are typically made of nylon and look pretty similar to standard collars, but they don’t offer as much of a disincentive to pull as a prong collar does, so you may not get the results you’re after from this kind of collar.
