|The use of prong collars should be governed by whatever animal cruelty laws your state has. Those laws are generally applicable, meaning that any behavior that violates them will be illegal even if the specific act at issue (i.e. choking a dog out with a prong collar) is not mentioned.
For instance, in my state (Illinois), this would probably be a violation of 510 ILCS 70/3.01 Cruel Treatment (Class A misdemeanor).
