Uh Rhys, did anyone ever tell you that those things are just goofy?
“Get this thing offa me, please!”
Hey, all you gotta do is convince them it doesn’t work anymore.

We used to use those thingies too, but then momma switched us to the prong collars. When we first got T, T was a bad dog and attacked momma, and the vet said “you might have to think about putting her down,” mom said not without trying everything first. So she found the name of a dog trainer here in town, and Tosca went to school. The first thing the trainer said was to switch to a prong collar. She said it is less damaging on their neck and spine than either the halti or regular choke collar. And since we are over 200 lbs of dog when we walk together, it’s a lot easier to control us girls when we wanna chase a kitty or a squirrel!

Riosmom, wish you had been around here when my folks tried the Goofy Leader on ME! I’m so glad that you worked on things with Tosca. Some of us are just a little more “special” than others and need more, uh, reminders, about how to be less special so we get along with other dogs and people too.
Yay for you and Tosca!!! Prong collars rule!
