I read on a recent threat about choke chains being used as collars but should only be used for training. I agree with the comment 100% but would like to add that traditional choke chains and pinch collars aren't good for any dog. The Pet food store I'm in the process of buying won't stock these type of chains. I just wanted to make people aware that there are choke collars available at most Pet stores. They are a nylon collar with a chain that pulls tight at the leash side not around the neck. I also found it interesting when buying my latest cage that there is a warning to remove any collar from dog embedded on the tray, it wasn't printed on my last one. The company has obviously had reports of dog deaths. I just wanted to let any new dog owners be aware of these two things. I wanted to give ChappsnHolly credit for pointing this out to the puppy owner. :D

I agree with you but the average person doesn't use them properly. I have seen on to many occasions people walking down the street with there dog choking and coughing. It would be great if all people took there dog to an obedience class but that isn't reality. I added this link for anyone that is interested. http://www.dogscouts.com/collars.shtml The Limited Choke Collar is the one I was speaking of. I have had great results with Zeus with this one.

you are talking about martingales and they are of no use to someone with an out of control dog or an untrained dog big/strong enough to pull you around.

there is nothing wrong with either pinch or choke collars.
the problem is the person on the other end of the leash

Martingales have always been the best for me. (even while training my dogs)

So im not sure if that means I agree or disagree.... because certainly WHILE I was training them they would pull a bit, but once they got it, it was/is a great collar.
