The Dangers of Choker Chains

prong collarSome dogs can be difficult to walk on a leash. We have all heard it once before; the old “Hey, who’s walking who?” line from our neighbor, The Comedian.

Choker chains can cause irreversible injuries to your pooch and many times they fail to work properly as a behavioral tool. The only thing a choker chain asserts is that the owner is stronger and thus more dominant than the dog by hurting it. However more modern training methods show us that positive encouragement training is far more effective. To read more about more human dog collars and leashes, Click Here.
