Uh... No. Not doing the half hitch. I already know she will try to flail, and in turn hurt herself, or shut down completely.
Since technically the collar slips down to where all the muscle in a dog's neck is, it is less effective to train a dog who pulls with just "any collar". The illusion collar, helps with controlling the dog because it can't slip down. The halti, and/or this collar I know works. And one store here sells both =D She does not have breathing problems (until she chokes herself by frantically trying to go after a dog, see a person, or flailing
), nor any of the "don't use on" breeds. I'm going to give both a try.
