We rescued our dog 9 years ago. She absolutely loves car rides, the furthest was Florida to Maryland. However if I pull into the parking lot where the PetSmart is that we rescued her, she tucks her tail, and curls up in a ball, she is 60lbs. I can take her to the other PetSmart no problem, but that one doesn’t have a Chick-fil-A in the parking lot. She is not aggressive, she is great with my friends kids, has never run off, my 4 cats control her, I would like to know what the first 6-7 months of her life were like.

the pinch collar itself isn't bad, so long as it's used right. It can't harm the dog as long as you only use it for training and don't leave it on permanently. Clearly this owner didn't do her research on how to use it correctly, because you should never ever use the prong in combination with a flexi lead. This is because it keeps constant pressure on the neck which the dog then gets used to, while the prongs should have the pressure kept off them unless it's for a correction. Aside from that, not all walks should be done with the prong collar. They need their leisure walks as well, which you can do with a flexi lead but in combination with either a headcollar, a flat collar, or a harness.

If you slip a prong collar over a dogs head then it will be too loose and have no effect, pointless in using it this way. You need two collars and a double ended lead and use the prong collar as a brake and the other collar as the lead collar and work the two together.

@PuertoRicanPrincess I personly don't reccoemnd trianing tools ( prong colalrs e coallrs choke chian ect ect) too the average perosn with no education or balenced trainer guiding them on the use of it, these tools get such a bad rep beacuase of idiots who missue them these tools can cuase serisoue damage and issues when used incorrectly.

@Haily Maree Every time I hear someone talk about "balanced" dog training, I can't help but shake my head. This term has quickly become a euphemism for training that uses both positive reinforcement along with physical punishment and/or physical corrections. The term itself is indicative of the key phrase those of us in the so-called "purely positive" camp hear so often: "There isn't just one right way to train a dog."
Haily Maree

@PuertoRicanPrincess actully, balenced training is 97% positive renforcment so no! Ppl who use balenced training correctly are showing what not too do AND what too do at the same time..and these colalrs don't cause pain unless used wrong, and don't enflict fear unless used wrong these collars show understanding of bolth sides of the storey corrections are not used most of the time when dogs are trained with balenced training, and actully it's mostly its jsut R+ with 3-5% correction everyonce in a while dogs learn from renforcment corrections are a form of renforcment, it is using a connection between owner and dog too help the dog understand what the handler wants out of it and what the handler does not want out of it, it's all about trust and understanding

@Haily Maree They suppress behavior, but don’t change it. The fear and pain elicited when the dog feels the prong collar being pulled may temporarily stop his pulling/lunging/etc., but it doesn’t teach him what he should be doing instead. Suppression of instinctual behaviors can lead to learned helplessness, redirected aggression, and physical issues. So train your dog what TO DO (e.g.; calmly walk next to you), instead of using pain and fear to tell him only what NOT to do.

I'm so glad Victoria is against the use of prong collars. Multiple studies have shown that positive reinforcement leads to a much better relationship and a more reliable dog. Any dog can be trained with positive reinforcement. If you "need" to use one, then you should really improve your R+ training because you're definitely doing something wrong. Just because a prong collar is quicker doesn't mean that it's better.

@Sessa107 woah, you took that completely differently than how I meant it. I absolutely consider myself lucky that my dog never pulled on the leash! That’s a great thing that very rarely happens, and I’m very happy for him because he adapted to something so quickly. I’m not ignorant. Ive worked with many dogs in my life time and have volunteered with them for 12+ years. I know the amount of training it takes because I dedicate my life to it. Also, I absolutely agree harnesses are great and theyre only way I’ve ever trained. I only responded to you because you said you’d never heard of collars hurting them so I wanted to make sure you knew flat collars can also cause problems. Just wanted to help you out because I know there’s a lot of misinformation out there. 🖤

@itsShelbiLouise you "got lucky"?? Whether a dog pulls or not isn't just determined by sheer luck. It takes training and if people actually made an effort to train their dogs, they wouldn't need a prong collar OR a flat collar. A harness is the safest option (and no, they do not encourage pulling)!
itsShelbiLouise

@Sessa107 Damage from collars is actually pretty common. They apply all of the pressure in one location if the dog pulls and they can damage their neck/throat among other things. I got lucky with my German Shepherd because he doesn’t pull, but flat collars really aren’t any better from my understanding.

@saramations Prong collars are illegal where I live (rightfully so) and I have literally NEVER heard of damage from a collar. The majority use harnesses and guess what, they actually make an effort to train their dogs not to pull! Just because a prong collar is a quick fix doesn't mean that it's the right thing to do.

High quality Prongs are actually very effective and a safe way to communicate leash pressure. I'd rather not have my dog choked with a flat collar, constantly slipping down and causing neck damage while I train it.

There are more humane alternatives. For every situation in which dog owners claim that control is provided by a prong collar, a head collar or a front-attachment harness is the better, safer and more humane choice. These harness options take some time and training to use correctly, but the payoff is big. They’re more effective and you’ll have a better relationship with your dog!

Prongs create negative associations. Anything present in the environment when your dog experiences the pain of a prong collar can take on a negative association, including other dogs, children and strangers. This does the exact OPPOSITE of what we want - it makes dogs more reactive, and more likely to lunge toward or be fearful of triggers!

They build fear and discomfort, and damage your relationship with your dog.Prongs (and other aversive, confrontational training techniques) are painful! If every time you walk with or train your dog, he is experiencing pain and discomfort, pretty soon your presence is going to be associated with pain and discomfort. Wouldn’t you rather your dog trust and feel safe with you?

Had to ask: So why are we encouraging loose leash walking where the dog (Who's shown some form of aggression/reactivity) is in front of the handler? I understand teaching a dog boundaries where you can allow them to walk next to you, in front of or even behind you, on a loose leash when you've control over their reaction to certain stimuli. But to put a reactive dog in front of you is to give them the lead, even if they're walking slowly, they're still in a position of power. Any one else find that a bit odd?

The alpha dog myth arose when researchers observed wolves in an enclosed habitat and found that one wolf became a pack leader, demanding to eat, mate, and meet his needs first while the rest of the pack recognized his dominance. The problem is, first, that wolves in the wild don’t typically act this way, preferring to do things for the good of the whole pack. The second problem with this theory is simply that dogs are not wolves. They were bred to be our companions and have different needs than their ancestors.

In every video I've seen against prong collars, they're used completely wrong. If you use them wrong you will mess up your dog! DON'T use a prong collar if you don't have any idea of what you're doing. I'm totally against them too if it's used by ignorant people who will just pull around it without the dog understanding anything. They will become anxious and eventually bite you or someone else. However, for someone with the right guidance and knowledge on how using it, it can be an absolutely amazing tool. Look up Upstate Canine's Tom Davis, he explains it very very well. It has been an absolute life changer. By the way if you think prongs are "mean", letting your dog pull and lunge with his whole strength into his flat collar instead is going to lead to fatal damage to its trachea in the long run. Try to get the focus of a high drive GSD or malinois who is completely phasing out using treats, words or some sort of conditioning. Nope, not gonna happen. It might work for a few seconds but that's it. The dog in the video is so calm, that's not a challenge... Don't get me wrong I've learnt a lot of great things through Victoria's videos but this is one subject where i strongly disagree with her. Educating the owners is everything, not demonizing a working tool.

Because they are archaic - obsolete, old-fashioned and behind-the-times! Fear- and pain-based devices like this may have been the norm 30 years ago, but they do not have any place in modern, 21st-century dog training. Today, responsible trainers and owners make choices based on science and proven facts about canine learning and communication to interact with their dogs through positive reinforcement. It’s more effective, more humane, and more fun!

@Tamara Josephson They’re painful and inhumane. Despite what some trainers or store employees might tell you, driving metal prongs into your dog’s neck HURTS! Under their fur, the skin on dogs’ necks is actually significantly thinner than human skin. Although eliciting sudden sharp pain may provide a quick fix in the moment, the effects are usually short-lived.

@PuertoRicanPrincess The purpose of these collars is to mimic the mother dog nipping at them when they do something wrong. It is supposed to be a quick correction just to get the dog's attention. They are very smart creatures and once they understand, there is no need to correct and the dog successfully walks beside the owner with the leash in a 'j' at their side! No real pain inflicted!

@PuertoRicanPrincess again, if you did any sort of research you would know that isn't true. Correctly used prongs are safer for pulling dogs than headcollars, flat collars and harnesses.

Prong collars can be such useful and affective tools when used properly. This lady is misusing it in every way possible haha. First off, you never put it over your dog's head, you pinch the prongs to undo them and then snap it back. You also place it up at very top of your dog's neck, never at the bottom where a flat collar sits. And also never use one with a flexy leash oh god no lmao

Skin on a human’s neck is actually thicker (10-15 cells) than the skin on a dog’s neck (3-5 cells). So if you think wearing a prong collar would hurt, imagine how your dog feels.

That prong has way too big links, its improperly fitted, and improperly used. Try a 2.25 or 3.0 herm sprenger fitted at the base of the neck and snug. It should NEVER be slipped over the head. Its partially called a pinch collar because you pinch the links to get it on or off

@PuertoRicanPrincess Since you completly ignored my whole paragraph on how a rounded prong collar doesn‘t inflict pain and fear on a big, confident dog I‘m saying it again. A rounded prong does not hurt a dog. A prong is a tool just like a halti, a flat collar or anything else. The tool alone doesn‘t change the behavior...because like the name suggests, it is a tool, not a solution. Training does. Every tool can do harm to a dog if used wrong. If you use it correctly, a prong is a good tool. You are out here acting like using a prong equals force and negativity. Balanced training uses positive reinforcement aswell as correction. You train and reward good behavior you actively correct negative behavior. You can induce pain and fear on a dog with every tool. By your logic a halti is also horrible and makes the dog feel pain and fear.
PuertoRicanPrincess

@Timber Wolf They suppress behavior, but don’t change it. The fear and pain elicited when the dog feels the prong collar being pulled may temporarily stop his pulling/lunging/etc., but it doesn’t teach him what he should be doing instead. Suppression of instinctual behaviors can lead to learned helplessness, redirected aggression, and physical issues. So train your dog what TO DO (e.g.; calmly walk next to you), instead of using pain and fear to tell him only what NOT to do.

I enjoyed watching the training techniques when it was applied on the walk. I would like to point out for education’s sake that the pinch collar shown is not properly fitted. It should not fit over the head, there are links that come apart for the exact purpose of unlinking to put around the dogs neck. A pinch collar should fit so that you can get you finger under the link gap, but not under the prong unless really forced so that the collar does not rotate to pinch their windpipe. The collar should be positioned so that the section of chain is over the windpipe, placing the prongs on the muscle of a dogs neck. Also, you can be much more effective by giving a quick pop of the leash rather than constant tension. That way it’s a short correction that feels like how a mother dog would correct her puppies. The constant tension could be frustrating vinny instead of helping communicate with him. I do really like the management of putting Vinny’s attention back onto his owner. I also noticed the downgrading of collar intensity from a prong collar to a slip chain which, when given a quick pop and then immediately relaxed, can provide a sound reinforcing “no”. A great place to start!

Barking at a dog is not aggression...from this clip, he has very mild reactivity that is easy to address. Calling it aggression is pretty laughable to me when I thonk of truly aggressive dogs. He pulls because he wasn't trained to loose leash walk. You don't need a prong to do that. A flexi leash is useless.

We agree that any dog needs to learn not to jump/pull! But there are positive ways to teach these things - ways that actually TEACH a new behavior, instead of just teaching a dog to avoid a painful feeling, without knowing what you want him to do instead. With the prong, as soon as you take it off, he’ll go back to his previous behaviors.

The pinch caler is to tite it should be nice and lose dangling under his neck so now presser is on his neck when he behaves. The only time it should be up agents his neck is when he is not listening.

@Dipper The service pup in training Prongs create negative associations. Anything present in the environment when your dog experiences the pain of a prong collar can take on a negative association, including other dogs, children and strangers. This does the exact OPPOSITE of what we want - it makes dogs more reactive, and more likely to lunge toward or be fearful of triggers!

@PuertoRicanPrincess not to mention the head collars didn't even work and one rubbed the fur away where it was and it took over a month for it to grow back. I switch him to a prong and when he hears it he gets so excited now, i can put it on him in the middle of a room and our walked are calmer now

@Dipper The service pup in training There are more humane alternatives. For every situation in which dog owners claim that control is provided by a prong collar, a head collar or a front-attachment harness is the better, safer and more humane choice. These harness options take some time and training to use correctly, but the payoff is big. They’re more effective and you’ll have a better relationship with your dog!

@PuertoRicanPrincess I've tried it on myself. Many others have too. They dont hurt. They are mearly uncomfortable IF the dog puts pressure on the leash. Any tool can be inhumane. Plus if you are following the advice of victoria she would rather have a dog put down then use effective training tools. And she has before. Prong collars are effective and if used properly are completely safe. Any tool can be abuive if used wrong, not just prongs. Even a standard flat collar can because that puts pressure on one spot of the dogs neck, the trachea. The prong should sit above the trachea and the pressure is evenly distributed around the whole neck vm.tiktok.com/ZMe9xnhU9/

@Dipper The service pup in training They’re painful and inhumane. Despite what some trainers or store employees might tell you, driving metal prongs into your dog’s neck HURTS! Under their fur, the skin on dogs’ necks is actually significantly thinner than human skin. Although eliciting sudden sharp pain may provide a quick fix in the moment, the effects are usually short-lived.

She calls prong collar choke collar. Also doesn't know it's not supposed to slide over their head. AND they attached an uncontrollable dog on a FLEXI LEASH which can break and injure the user AND can break in general without a prong attached. Not only that, but the flexi keeps constant pressure on the neck which is improper. Research the tools you buy. Prong collar is great but only if used correctly.

In order to use tools, you have to use them CORRECTLY. There was no evidence of using the prong color correctly in this video...I'm confused if this is just reality TV or is it supposed to help people solve problems?

The reason the collar I sent working is because she is putting tension on the leash even when he is doing nothing wrong so he can’t feel the difference when he is doing something wrong vs right

It really disgusts me how common the use of prongs is also the propaganda of labelling it as harmless and useful. You turned a collar into something that chokes and stings of course it's supposed to hurt. Glad it's outlawed in my place.

The dog has a problem with drooling in the car. Victoria puts treats in the car to promote it as a good thing and source of food. Won’t this trigger a Pavlovian response in the dog where he sees the car and expects a treat, therefore beginning to drool?
mellowmind
mellowmind Maand geleden
@AnqaOdyssey Okay. I just thought it would be like food= drool, bring the dog to the car and give food; bring the dog to the car=drool.
AnqaOdyssey
AnqaOdyssey Maand geleden
She's trying to make the car a better place with positive reinforcement i.e. giving the dog nice things in a place the dog considers bad. The Pavlovian experiment goes like food-> drool, add a bell with the food, take the food out, ring the bell-> drool. The dog is giving anxious cues and she's trying to suppress those with nice things. It's kind of the same except car=anxiety, food=nice -> car=nice

Prong collar higher up and the correct size, and change direction with a small correction if he pulls. It’s not evil it’s not mean it’s just communication down the leash. Positive only training is only effective until the dogs desire is more rewarding than the treat or praise.

Oh my gosh, a dog on a flexi on a prong my goodness 😳. Prongs are great tools in the right hands, high and tight you should not be able to slip that collar over the dogs head, if you can slip the collar over the head its way to loose. Now a prong will not prevent your dog from pulling, pulling on a flat collar is just as uncomfortable as pulling on a prong, what makes a prong special though is the ability to correct the dog. Another thing I see wrong here is the brand of this collar and the way it's put together, the only brand of prong you should use is a herm spring because of the quality, these pet store collars may be cheap but they normally have sharper edges and they do not have plates that evenly distributed the weight and protect the trankia. Theres so much more wrong like the way she was handling the dog but you'll have to figure all that stuff out yourself, there's to much to know to put into one comment.

I think prong/E collars are fine to use if they’re used humanely and properly. I’ve seen so many people say that E collars caused pain and are inhumane, but that’s not really true. I used the collar on myself before my dog, and it wasn’t painful, just uncomfortable. It didn’t even cause mild pain to me until level 80-ish out of 100. As for the prong, it’s a great tool if, and only if, you know how to fit and use it right.

I had dogs that pulled and were difficult to manage.. NEVER ONCE did I use a prong!!!! Or shock or choke. Even with large dogs. The head halter, no pull harness and check collar are the best tools to regain control. Prongs, choke & shock are what's called "force training". The idea behind it is "do what i say or i'll hurt you". And completely inhumane. However, the three I mentioned earlier, are 100% completely humane, and work wonderfully with positive reinforcement training.

The redundancy in a prong collar combined with a flexi lead is the DUMBEST thing i've seen. The flexi lead is not a good tool especially if you claim your dogs aggressive.

I’m sorry I love the way Victoria trains and I’m all for positive reinforcement training but I have a pitbull and honestly a prong collar is the only way I was able to train her on a leash it’s not something I use all the time but it is a tool that has help me achieve what I want without harming my dog because when I used a flat color my dog would literally pull so hard she would choke her self out. My only complaint about this woman using a prong collar is that she slid it over the dogs head. A pinch color is made a certain way so that you can pop a prong out put it around the dogs neck and pop the prong back in that’s how you put it onSliding it over the dogs head could injure his eyes and it’s even more uncomfortable for the dog for prongs to be slid on
