We have two bully mix dogs with thick necks..a regular flat collar does nothing for correction with these types of dogs..and a regular chain slip collar is ineffective because the narrowness keeps them from really feeling it until they are pulling too hard..the only benefit for chain for them is the click sound of a snap correction. But we have found that in most cases, martingales work best. We use a 2″ wide one on them both since the wider coverage makes them more aware when it does tighten..and does not run the high risks of injury associated with a CC. They are perfect for being tied up out back too. We do use prong collars for walks and crowds..but I would also Only recommend them for people who are trained in how to use them. PC are NOT meant for sustained tension and should Never be used for tying out your pups! But are a useful tool when properly used, especially on thick necked and/or stubborn pull/lunge dogs. They are meant for just a quick tension and release, or “snap” action. So that it only gets their attention, gets their brains back focused on what you are asking of them.
I guess the best advice is that use of Any restraint requires research, training and practice. Each dog responds to different things..and sometimes breed also plays a Huge factor! It’s all about Everyone’s safety, including your furbaby!
