ohhhh boyyyy Bentley! You are REALLY asking for it! Please be good to your Mama!
Gosh, I feel for you Joyce. You know, if you do decide to use the prong collar, I'm sure you already know this, but please make sure you have someone who really knows how to use it correctly to teach you. I actually really like using mine. It's like power steering for dogs that pull, and for me it's a temporary solution: first you learn how to get your dog under control, then you can "graduate" to a different collar. I was taught how to use it by 2 separate trainers, both with very similar instructions. You NEVER hurt the dog by using it: it's just a short/quick/strong pull on the leash (as a correction only) and then an immediate release of the pull. You can continue your usual training including heeling, etc., just use the prong for when you're correcting the dog. There are a few YouTube videos out there showing the technique.
