Huh, I had no idea they had those. I'm not worried about injuring him really. He's had a full grown french bull dog hanging from his neck without any injury. But for a smooth coated dog those tips could come in serious handy. Kinda like the neighbors I had who were using a prong collar on their 4 month old miniature dachshund :roll: (a prong, might I add, they purchased for their 8 week old rottie who had, of course, since outgrown it -- same couple \"taught\" said rottie not to bite by sinking their teeth into his ear every time he put their hands in his mouth. I was just waiting for him to sink his teeth into one of their arses hee hee).Kristen Cabe said:Just one more note about the prong collar - if you're worried about it being too 'harsh,' you can buy the vinyl tips that go over the prongs. I used them on the dobie/hound I fostered because the bare prongs seemed to irritate his neck. They may not work as well on a longer haired dog like a shepherd, but they are at least a thought. :wink:
The army won't pay me nearly what my washer/dryer is worth. They never do. I'm still in awe that they managed to drop the thing on its top. That's talent!
OOOOH and before I forget: Kristen, where did you get Jak's fursaver. Dh asked me to mention it to you b/c that's teh kind he wants for Achilles (all we could find in Germany were the smaller silver rings and he wants the larger bronze ones).
I can actually leave my house today -- so let's cross our fingers and hope I find a prong. Worse comes to worse I'll order online...gotta go to petsmart for some new doggie toys anyway. Poor dog's chewed all of his up again and last night was using my toilet bowl brush as a substitute
