Their is NO need to fry that dogs neck. Outsmart the dog! Start out by following the advise that ME gave you a couple posts back. You MUST start with Basic Obedience. When your dog has that down, you'll be able to train him. He must understand what you want from him. Until B.O. is acheived, you will get nothing but frustration and a confused dog.

Good luck to you and your new older dog.
