this is probably a dumb question but...Is it okay to use a training collar on a puppy before he's full grown? I don't want Remi to get used to pulling on the lead mainly because he's going to get bigger , it's not good for his little neck and it's not good manners. I need something that's going to help discourage that behaviour. Treats are okay teach the word but they won't and can't keep him there
How old is the dog you are talking about. I have used prong collars to teach heeling to many puppies (used with reason) 4 months old is plenty old enough. With very young pups, short tugs with a flat buckle collar are pretty effective to get the point across.
