  1. Just viewed this video and I agree…why does this small dog who is a service dog need a pronged collar?…if it is so well trained…why does she need to pull the dog up to bring it from a down to a sit????As a dog trainer for decades the average well trained pet dog can perform basic changes in position without the use of a pronged collar.I fully support and admire real service dogs.

    1. Diana Squicciarini using a prong is not bad but her dog not being able to sit automatically is different because now she is abusing the training tool and dog.

    2. Looking at this video again I do see the prong collar too low on the neck and when having the dog sit or down the collar is used to guide the dog into those positions. Pronge collars are also known as correction collars after a dog does not comply with the commands of the owner. It is also kept on some dogs after as a reminder.
      Pulling a dog into positions is my opinion. the wrong way to train a dog especially if it is not positioned poperly just under the ears and the rings are to the right side of the head. There is a live ring and a dead ring and the bolt clip can be put on both. Never above the head and so long.
      Just my opinion and opinion of many who use it. Look at manufactorers instructions and Leerburg training.
      Only concerned about the small dog.

    3. My Little Dog Shoppe South Park PA I agree the pour placment of the prong collar the way this collar is placed could puncture something enspecily with the force she is using to get her dog in a basic sit and stand

  2. ADA says no certification and no ID is required and no vest or patch are either but it makes it easier going out in public so if you think a vest and patch will help you out So people will leave you and your service dog alone go online to Pup’parel.com
    ADA says it’s up to the handler if they want vest and patches on.
    But if you are not disabled please do not fake your dog as a service dog.
    I have a service dog

  3. 1 that dog is to small for a prong collar 2 why does she choke her dog to sit or stand a proper service dog goes through training to learn those commands 3 the pour placment of the prong collar the way this collar is placed could puncture something enspecily with the force she is using to get her dog in a basic sit and stand, the way a prong collar is placed is by the base of the head by the ears, not on the middle of the neck. she seriously needs to use a different collar and get her dog some obedience training.

  4. The prong collar shouldn’t be necessary the dog doesn’t seem to be well trained, it might still be in training, but they said it was FULLY TRAINED I THINK NOT
