Well, here goes.....even though we had already trained earlier, I decided to do some indoor heeling on the flat collar...about 5 minutes with the leash, and 5 minutes on the light line. Because it was indoors, there were a lot of left, right, and about turns.
She did just as well, if not better, without the prong. I'll have to try it several more times for it to be conclusive. This may not have been the case a month ago, or even a few weeks ago. Her heeling has improved 100% since we started the intermediate class.
Like I said, the prong collar is more needed for pulling issues in non-training situations. That is still a work in progress. Maybe I'll use the flat collar for her walk tonight, and see how that goes.
