Family pet. Competes. We had a regular HS prong collar but my wife had a hard time putting it on and off our GSP. This quick release HS prong collar is much better and our GSP is pleased with easy on and off as the old one made him uneasy!!!

Owns 2 dogs. Hunts. Family pet. Competes. This is a great tool for teaching obedience to a pup. I think this type of collar gets a bad rap, but it is very effective, and the dog learns commands very quickly.

Family pet. If I didn't know any better, I'd say it was magic! From the moment Brique first wore his collar, he no longer pulled. Pulling had been a real issue. He has the strength of Rottie, even though he is somewhat smaller. He only showed discomfort once. He has a very strong prey drive, so when he saw a rabbit, he was off like a shot. Coming to the end of his leash, the collar did its work. He actually sat down and waited for me to come and give him a reward for sitting.

Family pet. Great product! We tried several different collars to keep our dog from pulling to chase squirrels. He has gotten so strong that he started pulling me with him and it became dangerous. This collar is a life-saver, literally. Our dog walks proudly with it on, no more pulling. When he hears the rattle of the collar he gets very excited because he knows he gets to go somewhere. Quick release is a wonderful feature, I can't imagine not having it.

Family pet. This collar has worked wonders for our 55 lb 5 month old puppy. She was completely out of control. Our dog trainer suggested this collar. He told us to order from Gun Dog Supply, said this was his favorite site to order from. I now agree. Ordering was so easy. They sent it out right away. The product is really well made and so easy to put on.

We have a double prong leash that has a longer extension to a secure back-up collar. Works fantastic and ensures that there are no accidents.

"Collar is a great solution for leash issues."
By: Suzanne From OR
Family pet. Collar is a great solution for leash issues. My dog has classic "leash aggression", and he's deaf, so a stern voice or other verbal commands are useless. This is the perfect communication tool to work with my dog and de-escalate his anxiety and fear-aggression when on leash. He has responded incredibly well, and needs just the tiniest little tug to redirect him away from reacting to other dogs. I used to cross the street when walking with him because of his obnoxious behavior, but now we can politely walk by other dogs. I recommend this tool, but be sure you have a knowledgeable trainer (mine specializes in "impulse control" issues) to help you understand how to use the collar. You really don't need to have the dog being pinched by the collar very often for this to work.

"This collar is excellent in quality"
By: Siloh TN
Owns 4 dogs. Given the listed price, there is really no excuse NOT to go with a Herm Sprenger if you are looking into prong collars. This collar is excellent in quality, arrived in two days, and the quick release feature allows me to have peace of mind in case I need the collar to fall apart immediately. One scenario that immediately jumps to mind as befitting a quick release: what happens if you/your wife/your daughter is walking a dog being trained in protection work, and they encounter a threat while the dog is on a prong? Quick release and your dog is no longer impeded or put at risk by the prong. An everyday scenario: your dog's leash is caught on something, stuck in a rotating or automatic door, or caught in an elevator. A quick release could mean the difference between the dog's survival and serious injury or death. The feature is smooth, and immediately causes the collar to come apart around the throat.

Features a scissor snap that allows quick release and easy attachment of the collar.
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.
