I skipped the entire article once I saw that to come down here and make sure someone had already corrected that mistake.
Response to A Woman Took Her Dying Dog On An Epic Bucket List Adventure And It’s Heartbreakingly Beautiful:
That’s not true. Prong collars are more humane than choke collars (yes they are different). And for a huge dog like that she probably hardly noticed it. Although I will admit that the best method I’ve found is the leash across the bridge of the nose and around the back of the head technique. Like a “lead” leash. Works better than anything I’ve ever tried. And that’s the most humane.
