By: Timothy Hunter From NY
Hunts. Competes. Well I originally ordered the wrong size, but a quick phone call made it right, and I had it the next day. I have used it on my very high strung dog several times already, and the results were super. I am very satisfied with this product as well as the customer service I received throughout the transaction...5 stars.

Competes. Forgot that the links change in size as model size. Medium is plenty big for a large lab.

"I was unable to walk my dog until I got this collar."

Family pet. I was unable to walk my dog until I got this collar. It allows me to keep him under my control without hurting him in the least. We both get the exercise we so desperately need.

Family pet. I have the collar adjusted quite loose and use a standard length lead when walking her. The slightest tug will get an immediate positive response. This by no means a cruel collar! HOWEVER...Always Remove it when the training session is done!

Family pet. My dog is what I would call a hard dog. I put the collar on him and on the third day he said let there be light. I would have saved myself a lot of time had I used this collar long ago. streak241

chocolate lab. Family pet. Was having trouble walking my one year old Chocolate lab because of pulling and jumping. This collar has done wonders in quieting Charlie down. We still have some work to do, But he is doing much better.

Customer Review #26159
By: Tobin Gallawa From CA
Family pet. For a rescue dog. Was starved, and hair falling out from horrible infestation with intestinal worms. Literally lost 5 lbs when we dewormed him, which is pretty gross if you think about it. Anemic enough that the vet wanted to give him a blood transfusion. Pretty stout dog, despite the neglect. Unfamiliar with the concept of walking on a leash. Regular collar or harness would have been okay if I wanted him to tow a VW, not so much for me to calmly walk beside him. Pinch collar was easy to adjust. French snap quick release is just the ticket. Far superior to the slip it over his head type. Works well, and easy to correct him when he gets a bit excited.

Family pet. I first purchased the large size with larger links because I had measured my dog, and thought she needed it. I had to remove four links from it, and it was very heavy. I called and was able to swap it for the medium with smaller links, and it is working very well. I had a pleasant experience with the man on the phone.

Family pet. Extremely well made, but too big for my dog. Returned. I paid for shipping again. Ordered a medium. It seems to work quite well. Waiting for my refund. I'm sure it will come. The steel gauge on these are very thick and very heavy. Seems like a great company.

Strong, durable training collar distributes pressure evenly, and features a French snap for quick release with one hand. When worn under supervision, makes a great training tool 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 during training sessions and should NEVER be left on unattended dogs.
