I have never used a prong or pinch collar before. They look like evil, medival instruments of torture, but the obedience instructer thought I should try it. Henrey wasn't feeling the choke, and the way I was yanking Henrey around, it (and I) could easily damage his throat.
I am now a converted prong collar user. Henrey responds much more quickly to the prongs than to a choke. If you are concerned about what it feels like to have a prong collar close about your neck, I suggest reading this.
If you really want to see the difference between a prong collar and a choke collar, put each one around your upper arm and jerk it as hard as you'd jerk a choke collar. The next day, examine your upper arm. You'll probably see some broken blood vessels from the choke collar and nothing from the prong. (Suggested by a shy-k9s member)
More prong collar info.
We lost Henrey to cancer in October of 2001. He was a wonderful dog, always eager to please, very gentle, and wonderfully sweet. We will miss him.
