Rated 5 out of 5 by Sharon Good product
This collar was recommended to me by a professional dog trainer. It works well and doesn't harm my puppy's throat/neck like the metal spike variety or the choke collar type. I highly recommend it !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chai Great. Really works.
My 8-month old pit bull pulled me so much I had to wrap leash around my waist to anchor my body. With this collar, she pulls a second then stops. It works great. I can now enjoy walking her.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gypsy Works great most of the time
I have a serious puller and this is great for walks. Sometimes he does get too excited though and it's like the collar doesn't exist. He's got some serious neck muscle!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sooz Nice alternative from traditional choke collar
Sometimes my GSD gets ahead of himself and tends to pull when he is out on walks. I can't have him picking up any bad behaviors certain not when I have elderly friends that enjoy taking him out on morning walks when they visit, so I was looking into choke "training" collars to help curb pulling behavior, but I felt that it was too aggressive looking and since I live in a highly judgy gated community I didn't want them to think A. I'm abusing my dog nor B. that my GSD is violent, so I went for this training collar since it has similar features to a classic metal one but less mean looking. It seems to work pretty well and the plastic doesn't weigh him down so much. He doesn't pull as much when he is wearing this, though when he sees a cat and wants to go and eat it, this collar has no effect in curbing the pulling. It is a little difficult to put on since you have to couture/bend/twist the collar a certain way, so if you have delicate fingers, or arthritis, this isn't the best option as it will hurt your figures over time, if not the first time. Overall, it is a good temporary training collar to help reduce or curb pulling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ree20 I have only used collar once on my Mastiff.
The extra links for this collar were fairly easy to install after I viewed video. I tried it on Mastiff on one walk and it seemed to work fairly well. But my problem with my girl is that she is totally calm until she sees something that she wants to go and see and she lunges. So will have to use it several more times for final review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer love it
I somehow managed to lose my metal pronged collar...I think the dog buried it somewhere in the back yard...
This is some much kinder...it is really light weight, and the pronged area is more limited, so leaving it on is not a cause for concern about comfort

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cheyenne1 Doesn't work as well as I had hoped
We recently adopted a 10 month old Doberman. He is already pushing 90 lbs and didn't have much leash training. I started with a prong collar but when the plastic catch broke bought one of these. After the reviews I thought I had found the perfect thing to train with, however, this collar had very little affect on him. It was better than the regular leather collar he wears in the house which is why I recommended it. It is easy to get off and on and adjust but wasn't doing the job I had hoped. Went back to a prong collar and he is walking much better than before. I found the points of this collar to be sharper than the blunt ends of the prong collar also.
