|Y'know... I'm going to go ahead and say that I, too, wish you guys were my neighbors instead of those who use them irresponsibly. However, just as with ANY tool, there's idiots in bunches that use them and either don't know how, or don't care to know how(properly).
I've seen far too many people using them irresponsibly and I too, have never ever seen someone use them properly. I'm not saying those people aren't out there... But I mean.. I've seen people using them in combination with prong collars and Halti's(what's the point!?), and letting dogs go up to all sorts of people or other animals, letting their dogs misbehave or harass others, wander out into streets, getting DRAGGED by their dogs because the dog hits the end of the leash and the owner goes flying, dog fights, nearly causing accidents or getting hit by cars, charging my dog, you name it. Size of dog doesn't matter, I still feel a regular 6' leash is safer and better.
That said, I won't dispute that there are likely people who use them properly. I just have yet to see it. I also have yet to see anyone in person using a prong collar properly, an e-collar properly, see dozens of people misusing Halti's, and various other training tools. Doesn't mean there aren't those out there that use them properly. But you DO get A LOT of lazy people misusing them because they want a 'quick fix' and don't care to learn how to use it for what it's meant for.
