You don't need a choke chain with a Pomeranian. They aren't big enough to pull you off your feet. My puller weighs 99.5 lbs. What works best with him is a hundred and eighty degree turn when he pulls. Do it every time he pulls. Most likely he won't pull for long. Wliberty

Hi! Have FUN walking....It's great for everyone!!!! I also prefer the harness. I use a "wooly" one in the winter in PA and I have mesh for when I'm in FL (real home). They are usually measured by the girth of the chest. Let us know how is goes! XOXO, Jojo, Daytona, Baby Star and Baxter too!!!

Choke chains do exactly what the name says, they choke your dog. They are also very dangerous to ever leave on a dog when you are not there or on a walk because if they get hung up on something they can get strangled. Throw the choke collar in the trash and get a regular buckle collar. It looks from the picture like your dog is a Pomeranian. A dog this small is not going to pull you off your feet so either ignore the pulling, move faster (which is what they want when they are pulling), use a Flexi-leash when in big open spaces so he can run or stop everytime he pulls. This will teach them faster then anything not to pull but takes some patience on your part. Hope that helps,
Okay guys. I plan to start exercising. I think I am going to walk. I also want to have my dog exercise with me. My thing is as of now she has a choker chain on her, because she pulls when I have the leash on her. Should I switch back to a regular collar when I take her out walking?
