If you use a prong collar, here's a tip. Sometimes, the link can disengage, allowing the dog to get off-leash. You can use an extra-long chain training (choke) collar as a back-up. To do so, connect the leash to the non-sliding ring of the chain training collar. Provided the chain collar is long enough, it doesn't interfere with the operation of the prong collar.

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. Braided Non Choke Rope Dog Collar Pick Your by EmiiDesignsStudio

The collar comes in a wide variety of sizes and colors. I liked the concept of the collar, and tried it on several dogs, none of whom objected to the mild tightening. I found it decidedly preferable to a choke chain. All collars were adjusted properly, so that abusive choking was impossible.
