I second this, I LOVE my WonderWalker.

I had a leash on the collar and used a longer lead on the harness so I could keep slack in it but still use it as a backup. I hate that she would choke and cough but even after a few minutes, I think she was getting the idea. But I could almost see the wheels turning while she was trying to figure out how to get out of it. Thanks and I will gladly takeany more ideas or suggestions.
Well that's a pile of BS... Sprenger collars are exactly the same as any other collars, they are just made from stronger materials so they don't break that easily.Graham wrote:The use of this particular prong collar will NOT cause any irritation or harm to your dog's neck. However, using any other brand will harm your dog (as the prong I initially bought was NOT a Sprenger).

As an owner of a serious puller I can tell you absolutely NO tool out there will make your dog pull any less on a leash, at least not permanently which is what is usually the goal to reach. There's no need for prong collars, they are made to be painful for the dog, every one of them, even Sprengers. The ONLY thing that will make a serious puller stop pulling is TRAINING the dog not to pull. Any the best way to do it is by being patient, working with your dog and rewarding him for good behaviour. There's no need to hurt a dog to make him stop pulling.
