Why No Prong Collars?

They don't work.

Not for "regular" people.

Yes,  I can hear it now,  "you
must use it correctly"  Frankly,
the only people I have seen do
that are trainers, and in every
case the dog yelped.  So if you
are ready to apprentice for 10
years AND cause your dog pain
go for it.

This brings me to my second
reason,  my approach is based
on building a relationship with
your dog so your dog enjoys
working for you and actually
wants to be with you.  This is
not for everyone, there are
those who want the dog to be
an automaton.  If you are one of
them,  there are plenty of
trainers out there who will help
you use pain and force to  
create that kind of dog.  That is
not what I do.

    your dog has forgotten. This class runs 1+ hour each, once a week for 5 weeks.
