What I have to worry about with her, is she is a pom, and this breed has a problem with their trachea, so the regular collar can make the problem worse. That is why I use the harness. The choke collar may not be a bad idea. I have used it on her. The minute she pulls, she gets a poke of the spikes and then quits pulling.
