I've found positive reinforcement or marker training works best with training dogs. I've trained all my dogs with positive reinforcement and markers. They pick up things quicker than when using a method that involves punishment or correcting wrong behaviors. The clicker gives them a quicker and better understanding of what you really want from them, and by using marker training you don't create "human-fear" as there are no punishment and IMO it's overall better for a dog's self confidence.

I’ve used prong collars; halties; gentle leaders and I’ve had success with using all of those tools on my dobes and many foster dogs, but I would not to recommend it as many people use those tools incorrectly.

My neighbor has a pit bull and I’ve given them a prong after I showed her several times how to use it correctly… she still does it wrong :rolffleyes:
