    I won't fuss at all. When used properly, and properly fitted they are a useful tool. I detest a leash pulling dog. So many have learned to pull. I use them occasionally in re-training training and for clients that have limited strength and big dogs and for thick coated dogs. They provide very nice control.

    [​IMG] Is that the same one that peed on the electric fence? I won't use a choke chain at all. Just MO. I've seen to many damaged tracheas and hung dogs with them. I've seen them fall right off when loose too. I use a chain martingale though, same premise, but it only tightens so far and can't fall off. I'll use a remote trainer too (E-collar) to reinforce off lead what they have already learned on lead. I train some ranch dogs that will rarely be on a leash. E collar is what I use for boundary training, livestock aversion and COME from anywhere.

    You mentioned the dirty looks with a prong collar. I'll attach a picture of the ones I have made for me.

    Yeppers. I agree.

    Posted these pics cause I thought they might be helpful, not to seem like a know-it all.

    OMG! I hate those things! I'da flipped! Would have been funny to watch though...[​IMG]

    [​IMG] It was rubbing on your leg? [​IMG]

    Filled with custard we called them eclairs. Nummers.

    That was too funny!!!
    I too have a possum story. I use 55gal plastic barrels for horse water. I had a cleaning routine. Clean a stall, dump the water, scrub the bucket with a sponge. Throw the sponge over the fence into the next water bucket. Getting dark, I go to stall 2, reach in to grab the sponge, pulled out a bloated decaying possum!!! [​IMG] It kinda melted on my hand! I screamed so loud, pitched the rotten thing, it splattered everywhere. I couldn't get the stink off my hand. BARF!

    I use choke chains to hang feeders and waterers. :lol: I use a martingale leash for Jewel (the weimrador). She has a weim coat and is very sensitive, and her dumb head is small so regular collars slip right off if she's on a leash. Her collar basically functions just to hold her tags. Anyway, LOVE the martingale. I'm going to get one for Ben since apparently he's "my" dog now. :lau

    Eclairs here.

    I'm 5-1 and was about 100 lbs when I bought it. My prong collar is an all chain martingale type. It was great for St Bernards. I don't have a lot of use for it right now with an eskie. Lol

    I think it's great I can sit back and let you do the dog questions.

    I had a pet possom. I called it Frosty O. Possum. Remember the cereal called Frosty Os? I was a kid. I have a picture of it in a doll highchair. It was full grown too.

    Ulgh. Not usually squeamish, but that would have given me a complex. No more sponges, no more buckets, no more reaching into dark water... shudder
