    I would never use an e collar (I take it you mean an electric collar?) nor a prong (well, I actually think both methods are against the law where I live). Instead, I too recommend a harness as it more gentle on the dog's throat, but still efficient. Training seems to be key here, and unless Buddy is aggressive or you cannot handle him, you probably don't need a specialist trainer. Active training must be better than to force him into obedience by using something that will hurt him? Read some books on dog training and turn every walk into a training session, focussing on the stuff he needs to know. Reward good behaviour and end your outings with play.

    Thanks everyone and YES I mean an electronic collar and not to just zap him but to train him to listen. ( Correct and get his attention) There are many kinds of electronic collars. Some vibrate. some spray something called citronilla ( I take it something that isnt enjoyable) and some do use electronic stimulation. I took the choker off of Buddy and will not use it again. He would vomit on occasion and I felt it was doing more harm than good. I put his martingale back on and I am still up in the air as to going to a prong collar or to an e collar but after reading several articals I believe the prong collar is more humane than the choker. I also think that the e collar might give the best result but because of cost will wait until the last resource before buying one,.. Buddy is a very social animal who loves meeting and greeting everyone and I am hoping with more help from this trainer and with time and as Buddy gets a bit older he will be less interested in outside stimulation and walk better with me. He understands NO or BAD and learns fast. He wanted to get up on this end table I have in the living room so he could look outside thru the sliders and see everything down out back. I live on the fifth floor of a condo and there is a huge back yard area with walks and people with their dogs ect and after telling him NO BUDDY maybe 2 times he knows not to get up on that table ( his nails scrath the top) so it isnt like he is a stupid animal. He is very bright. I guess with consistency and repetition he will learn but in the process I can become fustrated. Thanks everyone,

    We found a great and inexpensive little device that we use for Koozer when we need to get his attention. It is a little red canister of compressed air...the Pet Corrector. You can get it at Petco and it was just a couple of bucks. When you spray it, it lets out this loud Pshhhh sound (like the sound Cesar Milan makes with his mouth). I'm telling you, it has been a lifesaver for us. Tell your dog "no" then spray it. Every time we have used it, it has only been one spray and the behavior is corrected. Koozer now sees the can come out and he is on his best behavior. The 2 main problems we were having were in the car, Koozer would try to attack the light reflections (like from our watches, or passing cars) even though he was harnessed in. Thought he was going to break a bone going after these lights. Next problem is on walks (which we use a harness), Koozer attacks car covers. For some reason, he has developed an obsession with car covers. But with this Pet Corrector, he is an angel!

    Sounds like good advice!
