    I use both collar and harness. Leo does pretty well walking on both but the harness is better
    As he will pull if we are at the dog park. He's in a rush to play with the other doggies that the collar would pull on his
    Neck.

    I noticed that the collar pulls the neck. I have a Martin Gale collar on Porkie. I feels as though I am still pulling her neck. She has a Kong harness as well.

    I use a Martingale collar, but don't have any problems as Dozer does not pull. He stays by my side all the time. We had problems with the collar sliding off because he would lay down beside me if we were out and as soon as he put his head down it falls off. I just kept putting it on, then the trainer I am working with asked if I wanted to try a Martingale collar which works perfectly. He doesn't pull and is a really good boy. The only reason I even have a collar on him is when we are out and about because it's the law.

    I use a collar for Bocephus if we are just going out in the yard (in case he trys to go visit the kids next door or the cat across the street). For walks, I always put him in his harness (I have a couple different types) that way he can't pull or choke himself.

    we bought a martingale collar and yes it stops Ftse pulling us but it still pulls on their neck so I stopped using it after the second time and went back to the harness I would rather be pulled than hurt Ftse

    I agree . I am switching back to the harness due to those reasons. I know Martin Gale explains no choking, it pulls. She can sport the collar as fashion lol

    Thinking of trying the Martingale collar - for training only.
    WB is very strong now.
    So am I.
    But I can barely hold him when he gets down, digs in and takes off.
    This happened once the other day when he attacked the hoover (he hates "das Hoover").
    I ended up with a very, very sore pinkie finger and had to let go of the leash as a result.
    Imagine what would happen out on the street.
    I don't want to see him escape an get run over...of get the needle for biting someone.
    He has to learn NO means NO dogon it!

    I use a collar for tags and taking Rigs potty out back. A harness for walking or going potty out front where there is a lot more going on.
