Dogs primarily communicate with each other through touch and varying degrees of pressure on the neck. From the very beginning dogs learn canine manners and pack etiquette from mama dog gently cradling, to firmly biting the necks of her young. This is not meant to cause injury, it’s a canine conversation that effectively conveys a wide range of information to the puppy. For dogs, Nature only chose the neck. It’s what they innately understand. As such, we use prong collars because tools that emulate natural canine communication are the very best for connecting, communicating, and creating harmonious relationships with dogs. Just like mama dog, we only use the least amount of pressure to convey our expectations. This translates to a stress free experience for dogs and their owners, because when used properly, prong collars have been proven to be the least physically taxing, most humane, and one of the safest tools available. Most tools tend to mask or manage unwanted behavior, but the prong collar allows us to effortlessly communicate, creating a vastly different state of mind and a highly responsive dog.
