Don’t choke chains or prong collars work just as well as a Gentle Leader® Headcollar for controlling lunging and jumping?

All dogs have a natural “opposition reflex” – if you push against them, they push back. Any collar that puts pressure at the front of the throat actually works against the owner by increasing the dog’s instinct to pull forward. Not only do these products not solve the pulling problem, they can cause choking and pain for the dogs. The Gentle Leader removes a dog’s instinct to pull forward by eliminating pressure from the throat area.
