When both types of conditioning are put together, these forms of learning can lead to downward spiraling behavior problems, especially when choke chains and prong collars are used on already fearful or fear-aggressive dogs. Let’s take for example a dog who barks at and runs towards other dogs, whether out of excitement, fear, or leash frustration. When he reaches the end of the leash, the choke chain or pinch collar inflicts pain and distress, possibly exacerbated by the handler jerking the leash. More often than not, the dog will not learn that good behavior (stopping the barking and lunging) will make the pain go away. Instead, the pain and distress will be associated with the other dog, making the barking and lunging even worse the next time another dog shows up. It would be more effective to teach the dog how to behave right and reward the correct behavior. Rewards make for positive associations and therefore a positive mindset, making future dog encounters more likely to be peaceful.

Martingale dog collars are also known as , or humane choke collars. The martingale dog collar was designed for because their necks are larger than their heads and they can often slip out of buckle collars. These collars have gained popularity among other breed owners in the recent past with many trainers now recommending them instead of choke chains or buckle collars. Nylon Dog Choke Red Collar 22in

Martingale collars are also known as or Humane Choke Collars. The Martingale Dog Collar was designed for Sighthounds (ie, Greyhounds, Whippets, Italian Greyhounds, Borzoi, Saluki, etc) because their necks are larger than their head and they can slip out of traditional side release ; these collars have gained popularity as with other breeds in the recent past because trainers prefer the humane choke aspects.The martingale collar allows you to give slight corrections if you’d like, but it is much gentler than a choke (or slip) collar or a prong/pinch collar. This makes it a nice option for a variety of dogs, even puppies or senior dogs.The martingale collar tightens slightly if the dog pulls on the leash, but not so much where it will choke the dog or harm his neck in any way. If you prefer to give your dog slight tugs on the leash while working on leash manners, the martingale is a nice option.An even more extreme version of the slip chain is the prong collar, pictured here. The idea of the prongs is that they act like teeth, even more realistically simulating a dog’s bite and so providing more intense correction (here you can genuinely call it that). Some owners of big tough dogs find great success with these. However even more care must be taken when using them, as they are even more dangerous than the non-pronged version. Not only can the dog choke, now the neck can actually be punctured if he lunges or pulls quickly or strongly enough.I prefer the term “slip” because “choke” has bad connotations (intentionally so, by detractors); and although it can be a dangerous collar and must be used with care, there are situations and dogs that benefit from it.Since dogs aren’t allowed to walk around the world freely, our canines are required to wear some kind of equipment that we can hook the leash to. For many guardians, taking a walk with their dog is often quite challenging due to this very unnatural demand. Without proper training, dogs are likely to pull their guardian around during the entire walk. With smaller dogs, pulling is somewhat manageable since our weight and strength far exceeds their own, although even small dogs can sometimes pull surprisingly hard! With medium to large dogs, some guardians give up on walking them altogether. After all, why subject our self to such a stressful experience? As intelligent and creative creatures as we are, over millenniums of living with dogs, we’ve come up with an assortment of devices intended to stop the pulling and gain more control. From regular flat collars, to choke collars, prong collars, head halters and harnesses, we now have many choices. But these choices are not all equal in their efficiency or on their effect on the dog.
