    Good to know. So maybe I can skip the harness. Doe she still choke on a martingale? Or not the way it distributes the pressure around?

    The martingale give a correction so he usually settles down after the first two snaps of the collar

    So the vet put him under and checked him out, at our insistence. Supposedly he has Elongated Soft Palate and that why he sounds hoarse sometimes. He said to leave it alone, since he is still under 5 months old, and monitor him as he grows up. What are your thoughts?

    It is not a bad suggestion, if he is not vomiting or out of breath quickly when walking, it can wait. Two of my bulldogs had it done, my Frenchie had to have it done twice because it can grow back.

    Vet said he MIGHT (emphasis on might) grow out of it - but does that mean that if he does not, and even if it does not get worse, he will have trouble vocalizing?

    We did put him on a martingale BTW, although vet said that was not the issue but that they do help for training regardless. Still finding the best way to adjust it though, as all of the youtube videos say different things.
