Alli Prong Collar – This is a collar comprised of metal prongs that are linked together. Alli When pressure is applied to the collar with the leash, alli the dog receives a slight pinch on their neck. Alli This pinch doesn’t hurt the dog, alli as it has been designed to replicate the effect the mother dog’s teeth would have on her pup as she picked him/her up by the scruff of the neck. Alli There is a correct way to apply the prong collar, alli which should be learned before being used on a dog.
