    I disliked your article on a two pronged approach, I am a professional dog trainer showing dogs for over 30 years.. I find head halters and harness to be a cover up for behaviors. I do believe you must know what you are doing to use a pinch collar but if used right they are not painful, they represent the mother dog correcting her puppy. If behaviorist would really look at dog behavior dogs don't clicker trainer each other they they train each other by dominance, and dominance does not have to be a bad thing , just letting them know who is in charge.. Not covering up pulling with a harness not ignoring behaviors. Head halters have been known to injury dogs by pulling to hard on them. Every training tool if used improperly can cause damage. But to say prong collars cause pain. I do believe most store clerks should not give training advice. If you don't know what your talking about don't share your advice. Do offer a training center, were they could go to get information from.
