My dog runs head first into bushes, I know because I routinely find scratches beside his eyes and on his face because of this. There's no way anything but a large, debilitating shock would affect him when he was really chasing after something. I don't use shock collars, chokers, or prong collars for the same reason. He doesn't think when he wants to go get a squirrel, he just bolts. I use a Gentle Leader head harness or a no pull harness which attaches to the leash at the front of his chest (when he pulls he is then pulled to the side). Both of these give me control without causing him any physical pain.
