High-quality Dog Pinch Collar with swivel
Pinch Collar (also called Prong Collar) is usually made of metal and has prongs evenly arranged around the collar. It should be worn high on the dog's neck, right under dog's chin and behind his ears. This collar will be useful for the dogs that have problems with behavior, but you must remember that it should be used only in training purposes.
Myths about Pinch Collars:
- pinch collar slips off the dog's head in the most inappropriate occasions;
- the use of the prong collar is ineffective, because the dog may get used to it, and stops to react;
- wearing a prong collar the dog looks unhappy;
- the use of the pinch collar is ineffective, because as soon as you take it off the dog begins to pull;
- pinch Collar will help only if your dog refuses to obey;
- a good dog trainer may teach the dog to obey without a prong collar.
This is the most obvious evidence of the WRONG pinch collar use! Certainly, everyone may have his own opinion, but you should always remember that before using any training collar, you should observe all the warnings and precautions not to harm your dog. Observe sizing chart, for you to be sure that the collar will never slip off your dog's head. If you have doubts about what collar will do the best for your dog, you may ask an experienced dog trainer for a piece of advice.
Pinch/Prong Collars have different sizes, but it depends not only on the collar length that can vary from 16 inch (40 cm) to 25 inch (65 cm), but also from the diameter of the prongs. The thinner the prongs are, the more effect they will put on the dog.
The size of this particular Pinch Dog Collar is 23 inch (58 cm) with prongs diameter - 1/8 inch (3.25 mm). If your dog's neck circumference is more then 22 inch (55 cm), you can order an additional link,that will add 1 2/5 inch (3.5 cm) to the total collar length.
The weight of this Dog Pinch Collar is about 8.6 oz (245 g).
This Pinch Dog Collar was processed with the help of Herm Sprenger new technique, called Chrome Plating. It is a technique of electroplating a thin layer of chromium onto a metal object. Collars that undergo this process, usually look more decorative, then ordinary stainless steel. The chromed layer will provide corrosion resistance for your collar, as well as ease cleaning procedures. These collars will serve you and your dog for a long time.

How do these chains look so shiny and have such strong surface?
Whereas other manufacturers only dip the chains before galvanizing, Sprenger uses a different procedure of mirror-bright polishing. Dipping means to remove non-metallic unclean things like oil from the chains. The metal becomes clear but has no surface polishing. The advantage of Sprenger polishing is that the surface becomes much smoother and has this special bright shine. After tumbling, the chains are nickel or chrome plated. Nickel and chrome baths are monitored permanently by a laboratory. Sprenger examines the grip of the nickel layer through "bending" tests before the chains are chromium plated. This collar consists only of welded parts, that will serve your dog for a long time. All parts are chromium plated, so it increases in its tensile strength.
Due to the new scissor type quick release snap hook, this Dog Pinch Collar has gained some features, that differ it from other collars:
- it has a welded swivel, for you to be sure it won't ever break;
- it can be easily handled to the leash and unhanded of the dog, so that this process will take less time;
- due to precision work this collar has obtained extreme strength properties;
- under tension the jaws are kept closed by counter pressure of the bolt, so you shouldn't worry that it would open at any moment;
- as other Herm Sprenger products has a stamp "HS-Germany" on the swivel, that one more time warrants the highest quality of this collar.
