Recently we added a German Shepherd puppy to our family & I have been watching training videos. I want him to have excellent manners, and I have not had a large breed dog to train in a while. A trainer I like recommended this brand prong collar. I went to a local pet store who wanted $34.99 for this collar. I could not believe it, right there in the aisle, I googled it and found it on chewy for $12, so I ordered it. It was on my step the next morning, it is excellent quality, & has been great at keeping him in line while leash walking. I would recommend it to anyone!
solved my problems!

I got this for my dog who has a HUGE issue with jumping and pulling on leashes so I tried this and the first time I used it she completely stopped doing what she did before I bought this collar! It makes walks and potty breaks a lot easier and gives you a lot of control and doesnt hurt your baby
I got a size medium and it was a tad big so I removed 1 prong and definitely fits better to where it isn’t too tight or loose.
Helps somewhat to restrain my dog

I first began using this collar when my dog trainer strongly suggested it. It helps somewhat. Jamie is very powerful and this gives me some control. Perhaps I should have really given some thought to adopting a rescue pitbull mix (he was timid and skinny at 7 months old when I found him) now weighing 105 lbs. at my age of 58 with back issues. Having said that, I wouldn't trade him for the world, and the collar does provide some control for me.

We bought this collar after researching different ways to help with a dog that pulls. We have a young (what we think) Pit bull/Boxer mix who was unbearable to walk! She was walking us, not the other way around. We decided to try this collar and we are so thankful we did! Day one, it was like a miracle. Walking right by our side, and never yelped from discomfort, just wasn’t pulling. We have now been using this collar for several months and I can say she has gotten slightly used to it and has a “worth it” mentality when she wants to get after something, she will pull through the pokes, but ultimately walking her is 90% better and has saved our walks (and my shoulder)
Sizing is very confusing
on Nov 5, 2019Top 1000 Contributor
I use a 17 inch leather collar with my dog when we compete in obedience and it fits pretty snug so I bought the 16 inch prong and some extra links. Turns out the collar is WAY too big and I ended up removing 4 links to get it to fit correctly. Now the actual prongs only go about a quarter of the way around her neck while the rest is the chain martingale so I’m going to have to repurchase the collar in the 12 inch size. It’s a great collar and super well made but the sizing guide is crazy. She’s a 60lb GSD mix but it would appear she needs the small dog size
Such pleasant walks!!!

This has made a world of difference. I have a one year old Black Mouth Cur, Zara, who, because she is a hound likes to go to ground.
I had tried front loop harnesses. Rope leashes like are used in dog shows, a different brand of prong collar.
This collar was so simple to adjust and she walks like a dream now.
Useless for me

For someone with carpal tunnel I am unable to use this unless someone is home with me to put it on the dog due to the way you have to put it on. I should of gotten one with a buckle this is too difficult especially for a dog that squirms when your trying to put the collar on.

This collared really made a difference in our walks. Our lab mix likes to pull like crazy and will jerk when she sees squirrels. With this, she has better leash awareness and will just watch the squirrels! No lunging. We are hopeful we can keep treat training so someday we wont need it, but for now, our walks are 100% more relaxed and enjoyable.
This works if used PROPERLY

I foster pitbulls and I have a mountain cut. All of them drag me everywhere. After having to send my last foster to a board and train program because I was really struggling, the trainer showed me what he uses and how to use it. It was this collar. My foster walked perfectly the remaining time until he was adopted. And, I use this on my dog now and though we are still learning it, I’m no longer getting dragged. She walks properly now and she’s no longer choking herself.
You must know how to properly use this

This is made by the worlds best manufacturer of prong style collars. I can't emphasize enough about proper use of this type collar! It's for training and NOT to worn all the time either. I used a gentle leader before going to this type collar with decent results, but it wasn't quite enough. Using the Herm Sprenger allowed better results with the reactivity in my overly energetic/reactive dog. Do plenty of reading, talk to people and watch videos before deciding to try this type collar. These collars, when used properly, are very humane and there is good behavioral science behind why they can be effective. I'm very satisfied with the results of this product.
