Popeye has never had a training collar because as with all dogs of his breed it could damage his larynx if too much pressure was applied, so he has always had a halter or just let do what he wanted. He is totally ridiculous on a walk and when he first came to live with us he was just plain rude in the house. We have been very patient with the brute and he has slowly come to terms with our rules and I am happy to say he is quite the little gentleman.....most of the time. But on those occasions when I have been tested to the limits and he just will not listen I have to get out the "Big Guns" as far as training methods......well I do it...... I'm not proud that I have to use this source as it is total intimidation, but it works.
