Awful Article--very biased against training collars which have successfully been used since World War I.

Most dogs hate and fight the head halters constantly trying to rub it off. Harnesses are mainly used for sled dogs. Although, dogs who train easy work well in
Professional trainers are constantly called to help with leash pulling and are very successful with training collars. Choke collars are only to be used on easy to train dogs. A prong collar is excellent and won't hurt the dog's neck. The Veterinarians that I work with in Georgia highly recommend and promote the prong collar.

I've read this before. My Golden Retriever is almost 6 years old. He knows the drill but still continues to advance because he wants to settle for his hind legs parallel to my legs. I've tried head and body halters as well as a choke collar. He knows to return to my left side on command but I can do this routine 20 times during a walk and I don't walk him until I've thrown a ball for about 15 minutes in the yard 1st. He has lots of energy. I take him to agility and nose works so he can obey commands, have fun and get out some of that energy but the leash walk is still a pain. I've also tried changing direction. It sharpens his attention to me for a few moments but then he's off again.
can get him to watch me for a second if I ask for that behavior.

very good, but what do you do when your dog wants to pull to get to another dog even if you stop & walk backwoods he is not going to stop his main idea is to get to the other dog normally he doesn't pull otherwise. People are afraid of him because he has a very deep bark
