Happy New Year everyone! Just another question. I've been using choke chains for about 2 months on Toshi who's 75lbs already and I'm just worried that it's going to hurt her. She's fine when we're just walking but when we're in the park (specially after she's finished with her 'business'), she would run around like crazy. My retractable leash is only 16 ft long so when it reaches the end it will just tug her choke chain hard. She's a strong pooch and I can feel the pressure when she runs and reaches the end of the leash. Will this cause injury to her neck? I am planning to swith back to her old collar but I thing this will have the same effect. Sometimes I'm so tempted to let her off the leash when no one's around the park but I'm just worried she might run away. As usual, I need your advice. Thanks again!
