Dog collars

    I see there are a lot of dog owners here, so I thought I'd take the
    opportunity to ask a question. I'm a cat owner; never had a dog.

    It seems that recently harnesses for dogs have gotten very popular.
    I'm talking about the straps that go around the chest and legs and
    avoid the neck. But I still see lots of dogs with neck-collars.
    Isn't that bad for the dog? I see dogs straining against their
    leashes, and it seems that all that force on the throat and neck
    vertebrae would be very damaging. When I walk around Greenlake
    I hate to see people yanking on their dogs with those collars.

    What say the dog owners here? (Dogs can respond also.)
