|Comment||Thank you for the links. I have read them and it does make sense, however, I have never used a choke or prong collar. (I marker train.) It's hard for someone to know what information is accurate, when there is SO MUCH out there that is conflicting. Which is why I asked, as I've read your many answers and value your opinion. While I really appreciate the information on electric fences/collars, and upon research even agree with you, I thought your response was icy and condescending. Some people are genuinely researching to do the best for their pets. I believe we communicate a concept more effectively if we show kindness and respect.|

I'm happy to answer questions about the Aussie breed and temperament, and basic information about working lines versus show lines, training your Aussie, grooming your Aussie, and what it's like to live with a dog breed that's smart and versatile, but isn't for everyone.
