Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

They are very easy to pinch open or closed. Just go to a pet store and practice.

Thank you both for your advice Smile I'll give that video a look and hopefully get to a pet store this weekend for fitting. I'm not sure if the ones they carry at Petsmart or Pet Supplies Plus are herm sprenger or not though.

So on the original topic of excitement, even if I'm able to control his pulling I feel like he is still going to do that screaming at other dogs. Or do you think the prong collar training will keep him more calm all together?

If he's on prong and heeling properly that will stop. Heeling narrows a dogs world view and gets them focused on you , not their impulses. It takes the worry and anxiety about being in the world out of the dog and relaxes them, with a bond to you being the catalyst.

Many dogs who start heeling for the first time and get more calm start getting way more affectionate right away because their mind is at ease, and it was the owner who taught them that.

Please don't buy a cheap prong collar from a pet store, just use them to get your hands on one and practice opening and closing it.

You will need a 3.0 Herm Sprenger, which is a Medium.

Both of those Youtube channels have awesome videos showing how to teach Heel on a prong.

Watch them, repeatedly Smile

I'm curious how the quick release interferes with the function of the prong? (Unless of course I read that wrong.)

I traded in my normal prong for the Herm Sprenger with the quick release. I feel I have a better fit on Mishka since his neck is SO fluffy and it has never failed. I always had a horrible time putting on the normal one.
