You might want to check out the following two videos. Both are in Dog Behavior Lessons and Tips: (1) How to Handle a Light Line; (2) How NOT to Use a Prong Collar. P.S. Starmark collar is a good alternative to a Prong. It’s about as motivational and often less likely to freak the dog out. With both, it’s important to remember to use a backup collar — light weight slip — because both prong links and Starmark links can disconnect (usually but not always because they weren’s firmly attached in the first place). If that does happen, the backup means your dog will still be on-leash. I hope this helps.
