If it is done correctly,it will definitely work.I hv seen the prong work wonders on uncontroble aggressive, overly hyper dogs etc.
One hard correction is something like one serious punishent. For example,using soft corrections in general (screaming no,pulling the choke collar,etc) is more like nagging which after a while,the dog will ignore(like kids). One serious(hard) correction will shock the dog,he would not want to repeat whatever it is that caused that correction.
Some dogs hv been jerked up really roughly n left standing on 2 hind legs for a second or 2 & they r fine(i don't think ur puppy needs that kind of correction,lol)
It does not poke the neck but does pinch the skin around the neck. While there are risks,they are definitely lower than using a choke collar which can restrict air flow & collapse tracheas.
For mouthing,u can actually just shove ur hand deep into his mouth. He won't like the sensation & will do the opposite of mouthing.Do this consistently & it should help.
Attach a "tab",or a very short & light string/leash to the prong which is short enough so that it doesn't touch the floor & leave it on the whole day. The second he jumps on u, tell him "no!" & jerk him off. Tell him to sit & then reward him by praising & treats.
Hope this helps
