At Playful Pandemonium, we do not believe in or support any harmful training methods, including the use of force, choke collars, prong collars, shock collars, and intimidation. While these methods and tools can sometimes seem effective initially, they can cause long term damage to your dog and the trust-based relationship you have with them. We can show you the right way to build a lasting, positive relationship with your dog, who will be just as thankful as you are for it!
