*sigh* Completely off-topic, but... I wish this worked with my Rottie. She pulls to no end, I've even switched to a chain, which helps some... I've tried this technique ever since I saw it on TV, and have not seen any results. The only thing that works is saying "close," giving a warning tug, then reefing her back if she continues to pull.
I think her neck's just adapted to the chain...
