Enhanced walking technique

Recently I purchased “prong collars” for the Gyllendogs.  Here is a photo:

Although it looks like something you might want to put around the neck of Nancy Pelosi, it actually does not hurt a dog when he wears it.  The prongs are rounded, not sharp, and simply make the dog uncomfortable when he pulls on the leash.  Now that the pups are approaching 30 pounds they are becoming a handful to walk.

Since I have been using these prong collars I am literally able to hold the leash with only my little finger!  The pulling has all but vanished.  And I think the pups are enjoying the walks more now – I know I sure am!.
