Family pet. It is really the best training equipment if you can't stop pulling with other methods. You need to use use it only once and it works!!!

Family pet. Competes. I've used these before, and they are wonderful. I've trained dogs for over 40 years and have had some very good obedience competition dogs. This is the most humane collar if used correctly in training, and is also great for controlling a strong dog for just a walk. It is also the best for the spine and throat of a dog. The dog usually stops pulling right away and then can learn whatever you are teaching him in a class. The Herm Sprenger is the highest quality pinch collar out there.

Family pet. The smaller pronged caller is much more effective to use in training with a thick coated dog like the German Shepherd.

Hunts. Competes. Don't like the quick release, sticks as you get on/off. Will not order again.

Family pet. The quick release mechanism is very clumsy, especially to put back on the dog. I prefer the one that doesn't have the quick release and will have to buy it. At over $20, I was hoping to purchase only one.

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.
