I'm sorry. I took it from comments you have made that you still showed and bred. I apologize if I was wrong in that. You have mentioned many many times how vicious and strong your cattle dogs are. I just figured you used what you had to to control them. From the picture you showed in the other thread of the choke chain I "assumed" it was recent. So sorry.
Is it possible that not many people in your area, or on the council, have not had the opportunity to work with a prong collar and therefore are assuming it is dangerous? Why not recommend that someone take the time to be properly schooled and trained in the use of the prong. Maybe you will open some eyes as to their usefulness.
In my experience it has always been you use what works best for you in your circumstances. Once a dog has learned to heel and listen to you then it is highly doubtful you will ever have to use any corrective measures. But it's nice to know it's there if you need to. I would rather use a collar that pinches for a quick second or two than something that chokes and continues to choke until the dog responds. JMO
Assumptions do nothing but make an ass out of u and me.

We can stick our heads in the sand for only so long before it starts choking us. Face it folks. The pet population is bad ALL OVER THE WORLD!
