While I'm jogging with Sabrina, she tends to try to make me drag her. It really slows the both of us down. You guys think putting a prong collar on and giving it a jerk when she starts lagging would be okay?
While I hate prongs I agree 100% with this. Walks/run should be fun and enjoyable...I am a prong collor proponent and no, that is not the way to use a prong collar. They aren't meant to jerk dogs along. You need to try some positive ways to encourage her to keep up if she's lagging because she's been trained that way (whether you realize it or not) or evaluate her physical condition to see if she's really tired.
My problem was always the opposite but in group class the trainer did kissy noises. Not sure what else.
