In most places, it's even required by law when your dog is outside

The next step in training dogs with a head collar is to train them that when they reach the end of the leash they are going nowhere. That means the owner must hold perfectly still and avoid taking a step or even moving the leash-holding hand. Once the dog figures out that pulling harder does not work and instead steps back or turns to the owner such that the leash is hanging loose, then the owner can resume walking. Better yet, the owner can reward the dog with a treat so that dog comes all the way back to her and then they can resume walking forward. It’s important that the dog learn that a tight leash and the associated pressure created means she should stop. If the dog is not taught this and tends to act impulsively, she may dart out after a cat or other object and hit the end of the leash with some speed. This type of accident could potentially cause neck pain or injury. Even in the emergency situation, if the owner is paying attention, they can prevent neck wrenching if they gradually tighten the leash rather than letting the dog dart forward on a loose leash so that she suddenly hits the end.

Despite their harsh appearance, many trainers find these collars effective for strong, stubborn dogs with a tendency to pull on the leash. Also known as pinch collars, they are used for correction during training, similar to chain slip collars. Also like the chain slip collars, metal prong collars should be used with caution and never be left on your dog when unattended.

Back in the 1960’s, we had a Boxer who would attack anything on four legs. At age 5, we took him to an AKC Obedience Class. He attacked every dog, some three times his weight. The Instructor had us use a “working collar” which is a pinch collar. By the end of the 18 week class, the Instructor had me at age 12, take him through graduation. Two loose German Shepards ran through the course, I put him on the down command. He earned second place in a group of 50 dogs. The pinch collar was only used for about a month, but between my father and the Instructor, he quickly graduated to the chain collar. Our dog placed second in the group, he would have placed first if I had asked permission from the AKC judge to break the course in order to control our off leash dog.
