So much for my plan of taking her out getting more socialization, training and making her more adoptable Oh, don't give up that easily--if she's acting pretty normal, one incident in which she was manhandled by a trainer won't ruin her for life.

I have never used a prong collar on Reba or Tucker. Reba's old now, and all of her training is for fun, so she'll never be on a training collar again.

And my point was if this had nothing to do with Tucker or my decision to pull this could have been made another thread.... yet the madness continues. How is this madness?
