Each type of collar serves a specific purpose:

FLAT-WIDE

*Should be made of good quality, dual-ply leather, never Latigo.

*Specifically made for the working dog so his wind is not cutoff during protection work.

*Another excellent use of the flat-wide collar is when a dog is on a tie-out.

*It is not suggested to use a flat-wide collar for any other purpose because it tends to flatten the fur around the neck and a dog can slip this collar.

NYLON CHOKER

*The perfect training collar, and the least abusive to the fur and emotions.

*It is also excellent for placement command work.

*Nylon chokers are very durable and strong.

METAL CHOKER

*Should only be used sparingly. Corrections made with this collar have tremendous shock, both physically and emotionally. When used you stand a chance of breaking the larynx.

*When used properly, corrections should be kept to an absolute minimum.

*Remember: a nylon choker must always be tried first, and only after all options have been exhausted should a metal choker be used. I have found that it is rare to need a metal choker.

*Also, the smaller the links in the chain, the less damage it will do to the fur. Smaller links mean less link movement, and the less that fur will be caught between the links and damaged. The smaller the links the more reactive the collar can be. Telegraphing is also kept to a minimum.

*This collar should only be used as a last resort!

Prong Collar

*Should only be used by a trainer that only uses this collar as a fine honing tool. Hard corrective measures should never ever be used with this collar.

*When used properly, corrections are non-existant. This is a fine honing tool period!!

*On a beginning dog it also should be strictly used for placement. A correction can be imitated by taking up the slack on the chain portion of this collar but should not carry through to the links.
