"The collar, though used only for short minutes at a time, has made him aware of going out of control, and you can see him mentally stop himself and put himself in control. No harm involved."
By: Robert L Shrewsbury From UT
Family pet. Our dog can be so hyper he is a hazard. The collar, though used only for short minutes at a time, has made him aware of going out of control, and you can see him mentally stop himself and put himself in control. No harm involved. It is doing what we hoped for and is much better than yanking on a collar. He is a sharp dog and quick learner. Was 16 months and mostly untrained when we got him a few weeks ago.

"Great product and fast shipping."
By: Christi DiLeonardo From PA
Family pet. Competes. I tried a gentle leader, a harness, and a martingale collar. This is the only collar that worked. I wish I would have bought this first. Pulling me down the sidewalk is a thing of the past. Great product and fast shipping.

"It is a well made collar, and the larger it is the stronger it is."
By: Anne From LA
Family pet. With my large dog, I had no choice but to get the XL collar. I find it a bit difficult to put it on and take it off as often as I need to do so. It is a well made collar, and the larger it is the stronger it is. The smaller Herm Sprenger collars are easier to take apart (to remove or add links as needed).

Herm Sprenger German made steel. Very strong. Excellent for teaching heel, sit, stay, whoa, etc. Proper fit is achieved by adding or removing links. Just snap them in or out.
We prefer the steel "pinch" type dog training collars to choke chains as we have found their use to result in easier and faster training for both the dog and the trainer. We suggest that teaching "heel" is a good place to start with the pinch collar.
First adjust the collar by removing links or adding lengths to get a "good" fit - a fit where the dog will be comfortable when he is in the proper position but will become uncomfortable when he gets out of position. If the dog is wearing a regular collar, place the pinch collar in front of the regular collar and check frequently to be sure the pinch collar is not hanging up on the regular collar. We suggest keeping the pinch collar low on the dog's neck and walking at a slow but steady pace the first few sessions using a large (25' - 30') circular, figure 8, or box pattern. After several sessions, you should be able to progress to a varied pace, and quicker and sharper turns and stops. Placing the pinch collar higher on the dog's neck usually causes more discomfort and a better response in dogs that have not responded after several sessions. Also, a collar with smaller diameter prongs will usually elicit a better response for dogs that have been slow in responding.
We have found the springer pinch collar to be especially useful in teaching "heel", "sit", "whoa", "stay", and "here". Our own view is that choke chains and pinch collars should not be used on pups under six months of age. These collars should only be during training sessions and should NEVER be left on unattended dogs.
