By: CLH From FL

Family pet.
My Dane is laid back 99% of the time, but when you least expect it he will take off after a rabbit or dog she happens to dislike and sends me and everything in his way flying.....causing damage to himself and me. We have been training with the new collar and so far we are doing well. It is taking some getting use to for him, but it does not deter his want for his walks! Thank you for the great articles on your site regarding how to fit and use the collar correctly.

As far as looks of the collar go, it looks great. The finish of the metal really makes this a wonderful looking collar. My problem is with the integrity of the material used to make the collar. I've used Herm Sprenger collars before, and they have never given me a problem. This one though has a problem with the links that connect the small plates in the collar to the other links. My first day of training with the collar, and one of the links twisted out of shape on a correction and the collar flew off. I bent the link back into shape and switched its position in the collar. After training I saw that link that twisted out of shape was once again out of shape. I had to get it back into shape, and put it in another position in the collar to make it work. I also had to widen the spread of the other links that connect to the plates to keep them from coming apart. The rest of the links that make up the collar are of the correct spread and have not failed. Maybe I just got a bad collar, but I do not think that a customer should have to make corrections to a product after only having it for less than 3 days. After making these adjustments the collar seems to be holding up.

Herm Sprenger German made stainless steel. 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.
