|I am glad to see Cooper is doing well, and that you are happy.
And yes, this is traditional training and I have seen a collar like that at my local PetValu...it is much like a plastic prong, but the edges of the plastic V are not as sharp as the prongs.
This is not my choice of training style, I prefer what DS calls "treat training" and have not had any of the issues that he says arise from that. I prefer the non corrective way. This is only because I have used this style in the past, including a prong and choke chain (the worst of all collars, IMO) and did not have good results with them. Cracker and myself are doing much better clicker R+ and I will not go back to traditional training.
Either way, you are having success with the methods and that is a good thing, especially with street safety and boundaries, but I wish something kinder worked for you.
