Quality Dog Prong Collar
Training is rather a difficult process as you have to work not with a robot but with a living creature. That is why it is important to choose a proper training equipment, especially a collar. It must be of a correct size, made of a high quality material, fit your dog and be easy for you to use it. That is why we are glad to present you this wonderful Dog Prong Collar as it meets all the requirements mentioned before. Prong Collars are the collars that have prongs on the inner surface of the collar. Their main aim is to help in training dogs by means of a natural influence over them. When worn correctly, the collar pinches the same place on the dog's neck where mother-dog usually bites her children. Thus, Prong Collars do not harm the dogs but work through their instincts.
Professional dog trainers recommend Prong Collars as the humane ones, as they:
- do not require too much force to use this collar
- pinch straightly to the skin on the dog's neck so they provide an excellent training effect for longhaired dogs as well
- are very simple in use
Chrome Plated Dog Prong Collar
Prong Collars can be of different sizes, but they depend not only on the collar length that can vary from 23 inch (58 cm) to 25 inch (65 cm), but on the diameter of the prongs as well. The thinner the prongs are, the more effect they put on the dog's neck.
The size of this particular Pinch Dog Collar is 25 inch (65 cm) with prong's diameter - 3.99 mm (1/6 inch), consisting of 10 links.
If your dog's neck circumference is more then 23 inch (58 cm), you can order an additional link, that will add 1 4/5 inch (4.5 cm) to the total collar length. So that means if your dog's neck circumference is 26 inch (70 cm) you'll need to order 2 additional links.
Other available sizes:
3.25 mm (1/8 inch) - diameter of the prongs, 10 links - quantity of links, 22 inch (56 cm) - overall length of the collar.
The weight of this Dog Pinch Collar is about 12.7 oz (360 g).
Some words about the exceptional features of this Prong Collar:
It was made by means of Herm Sprenger's techniques, called Chromium electroplating and mirror-bright polishing. The main feature of chromium electroplating is that the chromium solution is put on the collar's surface with the use of electricity. It helps to chrome plate evenly all the collar's parts. Unlike some other producers, Herm Sprenger prefers to use polishing for its production. Thus, the surface becomes very smooth with wonderful bright shine. Moreover, due to these two techniques the collar obtained an excellent tensile strength, corrosion resistance and perfect durability.
Key features of this Dog Prong Collar:
- Polished surface
- Corrosion resistant
- Excellent tensile strength
- 2 O-rings for leash attachment
- Bright shine
- Smooth surface
- Very strong material
- Great quality
Intended use of this Dog Prong Collar:

- Prong's diameter - 3.99 mm (1/6 inch)

The "bite" with the training collar
The most efficient training collar man has devised to help in successful training of pet dogs will be the prong collar. When used correctly, this collar can be the closest thing to mom's teeth to a puppy, a precise tool for the pack leader's warning bite in teaching respect for authority to lesser members, and finally, the prong becomes a controlling tool in keeping social climbers within the pack in a respective pecking order status.
Sprenger Training collar
Before using the prong collar, a successful handler will have learned the amount of touch and release pressure is needed in any application, then how to put the collar on their dog in a correct manner. The thickness of the wire used in each and every link has to be chosen as big as possible and the blunt heads have to be rounded off very carefully in order to avoid any injuries of the skin. Separating any two links or using one of the other 'quick-release' style of prong collars. Sprenger manufactures, open the collar like a necklace and place it around your dog's throat. For the obvious reason of preventing eye injury, the prong shouldn't be slipped over the dog's head. Note: If you're able to slip a prong collar over his head comfortably, it would certainly not be a good fit in the throat area!
This training collar can successfully initiate or replace any kind of non-dog oriented education. Learning to use it correctly is the key. Snap a lead to the collar and you connect the two most important elements of training—your hand and the prong collar. All dogs are sensitive to touch because it is instinctively part of their language. Learn to touch your dog at the collar with different levels of pressure, and you will definitely have the upper hand in speaking dog! The passage chain allows this, and the result with learning to speak dog is this—no inappropriate behaviour in your home! Please don't drag your dog in a particular direction at the end of your lead, simply let him know which way is not acceptable, by setting the pace, being the leader your dog needs and understands, then learn the exact level of touch it will take to talk to your own dog. The lead in hand is not the teacher of desired direction, the collar is! The Sprenger prong collar is recommended by state-licensed and accredited instructors, and also by the federation of organized instructors because it works. If it doesn't work for you, find a person who has had success with it, or expert, and ask for help.
Many professionals put their dogs at heel to their left. There are lots of theories on why they do. When putting the prong collar on your dog though, there is no particular place you or your dog needs to stand or sit. Since you will be undoing either a snap on a quick-release style, or separating links to put it on, there is no right or wrong way for it to lay on the neck. The only consideration would be if the collar is too loose or too tight. Refrain from slipping this kind of collar over your dog's head to keep from injuring the eyes. Don't allow your dog to wear the prong collar with the prongs facing out-ward (inside out). This collar teaches the common sense that dogs possess, and we can learn from it also. The assumption that this collar 'pinches' when on the dog and pressure is applied, is a falsehood. It neither pinches or pokes the neck in a way that would cause injury.
