Don't Use Choke Collars

These can cause neck and throat injuries, and are not necessary to use in training. If a trainer tells you, "It's just a little jerk, it doesn't hurt," your response should be, "Just to be sure then, lets put it on you and try jerking it on your neck before we try it on the dog I love."
