Prong I use from aprox 8-9 mo. (depends on the dog, a soft dog later or never).

E- collar if it´s necessary while I working on a distance, usually the already learned the excercise but fail to obey me on a distance, probably not regurarly before 18 mo (depends on the dog also). Used it once with my girl for the recall (in combination with a long leash) while she was playing and didn´t want to get into the car at 9 mo.
