Our local Obedience Club wants me to put a choke chain on our dog, I said no because I think they are cruel, they now want to have a meeting to discuss… What are your thoughts on this type of collar?

Want more real mum questions sent to you?

Ask your question
  • No I don’t. As they can damage a dogs neck.
    I would choose a different club that offers positive reinforcement

  • Choke chains are not usually recommended and I am quite surprised. I would get the advice of your vet. There is a lot of research that is not in favour of choke chains, they do not stop pulling, only training stops dogs from pulling. They choke the dog and can cause damage to necks. I agree with you and would not use one.
