Owns 2 dogs. Family pet. Fit is good. Despite some negative reviews for this collar, due to it's having a plastic part in the clasp, thus being potentially not strong enough, I like it. It is less alarming to passersby, but still effective at keeping reactions in my dogs to a minimum.

"Gun Dog Supply tops in customer service and ordering"
Family pet. First: Gun Dog Supply tops in customer service and ordering. Second: the collar is great quality, but I'd say half the correction of a true prong. I think after some collar conditioning with the prong it will work well as a step towards a regular flat collar.

Owns 2 dogs. Competes. I love the black links, but the clasp is a bit scary to me. Sprenger changed from all metal, shorter, good looking clasps to part metal and part plastic ones. I have a strong working dog and am afraid it might break. They never have, just like the plain metal and feel secure with it. Also the clasp is not user friendly as the old metal ones. Other than the clasp, excellent product. I find it good for a walking collar with my reactive dog, but it is NOT A TRAINING COLLAR.

Warranted 100% rust proof -- 1 year manufacturer guarantee against breakage if used as directed.
Gray Stainless Steel Herm Sprenger Neck-Tech dog force (pinch) collars are made in Germany of top quality stainless steel. Each element is stamped from solid coiled steel stock. Neck-Tech Pinch Collars are guaranteed 100% rust proof. Designed for use with all dog breeds, including both short and long haired dogs. Herm Sprenger Neck Tech tines are designed to imitate the shape of dog's teeth, creating a "natural influence" over the dog. 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 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 used during training sessions and should NEVER be left on unattended dogs.
