Force is an issue with a prong collar - I'm not concerned about you, I'm concerned about her. You do not want to over correct. You need to pay close attention, especially at first, to the strength of the correction you need to use. You can give some major corrections with a harness and not do damage to the dog. A prong collar is a different matter.
Sure, you can still use that collar. It is not ideal, but it will still work.
To give an example, my neice was able to walk Ruby when she was 4 years old. Ruby is good on leash, but Julia was able to give her proper corrections... and Ruby weighed at least 15 more pounds than she did.
