My pup is a one year old german shepherd and he is NUTS about chasing squirrels, blowing leaves, joggers, and anything else that moves! He would pull to the point where I would fear that he would dislocate my shoulder (sounds dramatic, but he is a strong pup!) and walks with his regular snap-collar were incredibly stressful. No more than five second after putting this collar on him, he was walking with a loose leash right beside me; this is honestly a miracle collar. The only thing I would caution dog moms and dads of is to make sure that the prongs are completely rounded off and do not have any sharp edges, as I have heard that this was the case or some collars.
I'm EXTREMELY impressed.

Wow. So, I finally caved and bought my girl a Herm Sprenger prong collar for her walks. I'm extremely impressed! Seriously. I went from harnesses (both regular and non-pulling, she would actually pull MORE, didn't matter WHAT harness we used!) Martingale collars (gave a small correction but not enough to get her to focus on me when stressors walked by), choke chains (nope. She would still pull, even when if it meant choking herself out. I quit that after a couple tries) and before finally caving into a prong, a head collar. She hated the head collar and even though she would slip her nose in willingly as it meant walkies, during the walks you could tell she wanted it off of her face. She wouldWow.

She hated the head collar and even though she would slip her nose in willingly as it meant walkies, during the walks you could tell she wanted it off of her face. She would still pull with that as well, not as much, but definitely at times if she would react towards another dog she wouldn't listen to corrections, and it made me worried that she could possibly cause injuries to her nose, neck, or spine. The prong slips a little lower on her neck while shes walking calmly sometimes, but never too low (I don't think at least), just a bit above the center of the neck, and she still listens to corrections. If I remove a link it's too small, add any and it won't stay high and tight lol. I was able to go around quite a few blocks and divert her attention back to me SO much faster than when she has her head halter. A gorgeous rottweiler was a few feet away barking like crazy at her as we walked by, and normally she flips out REALLY badly, and attempts to go towards whatever dog she sees making noise, but this time she sorta flipped out, but instead of turning around after we walked past, she KEPT WALKING with me instead and didn't try to turn around like she would have with her head halter! She listened to corrections much better, and she seems to enjoy the prong over the "thing on her face" as well. I'm seriously SO impressed. Never going back to head halters ever again! Also, thank you Chewy for making sure my order got here. My first order never updated on shipping, so they resent my order and I got it the next day!… more
Double the Disappointment!!

I purchased 2 of these for my fur babies and they are SO LOUD that I can not even get near them to put it on. They have worn choker chains and are ok with them but, NOT this!!!When I did manage to get the one on she took a couple steps and sat right down and would not move until I took it off of her! My daughter bought a different one that is links and a piece of nylon and that one is MUCH nicer! It is MUCH quieter!
Exactly what I needed

Ordered this for my brothers husky who has difficulties walking on a leash with a flat collar. Worked within the first 5 minutes.
I wasn't sure of the size to order at first but when I called chewy I spoke to someone who suggested a medium for a husky and it ended up fitting perfect. Love this site. They never let me down. And everything always ships super fast.
Hard to get on but great product

The only bad thing is the prong collar is harder to get on the dogs than other prong collars but it is also more dependable if you have an dog that's totally unruly and would bite at it. You have to bend it when removing any of the prongs or when you want to put around dogs neck and that part isn't easy especially with the 16" one.
The product itself works wonders as you can train your dog to heel perfectly and while other dog owners at the dog park have unruly dogs pulling them to and fro your dog will heel and ignore distractions.
It helps your dog to see you as pack leader and communicate with your dog.

We bought this collar for our 1 year bullterrier. She’s pretty strong and pulls me all the time. But now, she’s stopped to do that. She tried it once and collar worked out perfectly! So now she’s is obedient, and follows near me! I definitely recommend this collar if you can’t cope with your dog.
No more pulling from this GSD!

We have a 1 y/o GSD full of curiosity and strength. He is responding SO WELL to this collar. Make sure you know what you're doing when you use this and it will be a very effective tool for everyone with a puller. The design itself is great, very sturdy and well-made. He never whines or acts afraid of it, as so many people like to believe. This was a great purchase - he's a whole new dog on a leash!

Super durable and is a helpful training tool! Works great, and does not rust if water gets on it. I would recommend buying this. It is a really nice collar and the price is very reasonable. Not to mention the shipping was extremely quick! Definitely worth the buy.

Collar is really helping take a field dog out of the fields and to the city sidewalks. Slowed ourselves into using he collar, now we can go for miles and he won't fight having it on. After a few short uses his walking habits changed greatly. Also plenty of links and easily removable.

I'm working with a professional trainer with my Newfie pups. This was meant to be a replacement for the one my pup lost. Well, the trainer refused to allow me to put it on my pup. He said these small prongs can cause injury and punctures! I had no idea and thought they were all the same. They are not! He had me order a 3mm minimum. I can't image a breed that this would work on without causing injury.
