Strong Antique Copper Plated Dog Prong Collar
We are glad to bring to your attention this wonderful Dog Prong Collar Antique Copper Plated made in Germany. This country is famous for its products of an excellent quality, and dog equipment is not an exception!
Let's find out what is so great about this collar.
First, it is a Prong Collar. Though some people consider it harsh and unacceptable in dog training, experts insist on using these exact collars. "Why so?", you may ask. This negative opinion usually appears because Prong Collars have not a very "humane" look. Though, if you cover the collar with a special Protector, it will look like a usual dog collar. BUT, its functioning and influence over the dog is not so usual. Due to the prongs, evenly arranged on the inner surface of the collar, dog feels a slight pinch into its neck each time when you pull the leash. Don't worry, the prongs are not so sharp to injure your dog, but they are really effective for dog's behavior correction. The secret of this collar being so effective is that the pinch is very similar to the mother-dog's bite so the dog instinctively reacts to it and stops acting wrong.
Second, this Prong Collar is made of Steel Antique Copper plated. Note, it is NOT fully made of Antique Copper, but Antique copper plated. Some words about this material. Actually, the peculiarity of this metal is that it is very ductile and easily deformed. That is why it is usually used in products that require great electric and heat conductivity. It also belongs to the same periodic table as gold or silver so it owns the same characteristics. It is very unusual in look due to its reddish or even brown colour, that is why it is a very popular metal since ancient times. Thus, this Prong Collar combines excellent durability together with a wonderful look as it is made of extra strong steel and then covered with Antique Copper solution. Very old products containing antique copper may become a little bit greenish. However, you can easily remove the stains by means of vinegar and water solution.
