Give yourself a little extra help with the Herm Sprenger Ultra-Plus Prong Training Dog Collar. A safe and practical tool for training, this collar is designed to let dogs know when it’s time to heel. The blunt prongs are effective without causing pain, and the patented center plate construction and symmetrical placements act as a natural point of contact for clear communication. It’s great for taking large dogs or tough pullers on a walk, protecting you and them from getting into a dangerous situation. Replacement links are available if you need to add more to for a custom fit, and can also be removed to adjust size.
Chrome prong training collar is safe, practical and easy to use for effective training.
Features a solid fastener plate that provides a more secure connection.
Patented center plate construction and symmetrical prong placement provides natural contact for optimal communication.
Great for walking strong pullers, large dogs, obedience training and behavior correction.
Blunt prongs do not cause pain or harm. Replacement links available to increase collar size.
To select the most accurate size collar for your pet, measure the center of their neck with a cloth tape measure, a few inches down from their head. Pull the cloth tape measure snug, but not tight. If you don't have a cloth tape measure, you can use a piece of string and measure it with a rigid ruler afterwards. Make sure there's enough room for about two fingers between the collar and your pet's neck for comfort.
I got this for my 65 lb one year old American Bully/Pitbull mix 6 months ago and it held up pretty well and my dog did amazing on walks. At first I took off one prong, but then it was too tight that I couldn't get the collar off and now that he's older I have added it back and it is now too loose so it falls to his neck when he's been walking for a while. I thought he would desensitize the collar, but even after 6 months of continuous usage, he still pulls when presented with a new collar. Might have to try something different.
Not Like the Original

I've used pinch collars on my large dogs growing up, and while they can be controversial, when used properly I've never had an issue. Instructional should be on their website or Youtube, but the collar is supposed to sit high at the base of the skull and the leash motion is supposed to be a gentle pull to slightly apply pressure, otherwise you can injure your dog. Although this is definitely lighter (think more aluminum body then stainless steel), and has some added points which differ from the early 2000s version, so far it seems just as effective on my 75lb German Shepherd adult male as it did on my 80lb adult male Flat Coat Retriever mix.

I removed two links (one from each side, so it remains balanced) on his 18-in neck, 3.0-mm wide version. His build is breed standard, but he's a bit on the larger-side. The collar arrived today and, so far has been used without any issue. We live in a high density dog area and it seems his previous owner(s) didn't really socialize him, so he has some on-leash reactivity, we're presently using the collar to help refocus him and previously tried a Martingale collar with chain attachment. Off-leash he does fine with his agitation collar or flat collar (which he always wears) independently, but neither the Martingale nor the agitation are sufficient when walking him as the pulling is taxing. This collar is helping us retrain him to "walk nicely." Yes, I would (currently) recommend.… more
Great training tool
on Sep 26, 2021
I have a very high prey drive dog who had never walked properly on a leash. After meeting with our fourth trainer for him, we were told to get this product. It took the trainer maybe 5 minutes to know that with the collar on, it's training time. He now walks in a heel, knows "place", does his sit immediately when told and now even doesn't react the way he used to when he'd see another dog he wanted to meet.
Manufactured diff from before- CHEAPER
on Aug 29, 2021
I have always used this brand for its reliability. I was replacing a 2yr old prong collar (just because, and not over any defect. Thought 2 yrs was a good run). The new one I got is significantly different. The material is not steel but some other thing material, the rings/loops are thinner, it weighs significantly less (I have a scientific food scale) 42grams different. I contacted Chewy and they said the manufacturer had not stated any changes. It is however very different. The new one feels cheap. I am highly disappointed.

Needed safe, effective, yet non- injurious training aid for our strongly energetic Goldendoodle Pup. This quality constructed “pinch collar” meets each of those considerations. Immediately on the first walk, positive “heeling” resulted. Had previously been using a harness without getting obedient walking behaviors. A bit pricey, but will last a lifetime since it is very well made.

Been working with my dog and walking multiple times a day, even with focus training he just tended to pull. Threw this sucker on and in ONE MINUTE he learned the perfect heel. Definitely should research on how to properly use before jumping in but worth the money
Breaks open/falls off while in use!

Do not purchase unless you want to risk your dog's life. The links have come apart 2 times when in use and my dog ran out into the street! Thank heavens there was no traffic. I was willing to think it was user error the first time but after the second time it was clear the links sometimes slip apart. Buyer beware.
Leaves a black mark

I couldn’t figure out why my dog’s neck turn black for a while. Looking at some other reviews of this product, I’m certain that it is due to this collar. Would probably look for a better product next time.
Miracle for our Brittany
on Aug 7, 2021
We’ve been struggling with pulling and darting with our 6 month Brittany Spaniel. Tried front harness, gentle leader (she really hated that), and finally this collar. Watched several training videos to make sure we fit it correctly and wouldn’t hurt her. We saw an immediate reduction in pulling and in her response to us with minimal corrections. Still have a ways to go (she’s a puppy!) but I now have hope that we will be able to enjoy walking/running her and she will learn to walk safely with my kids.
best training tool I’ve ever bought
on Aug 9, 2021
I bought this collar to train my husky leash manners because when I had gotten him from a friend that knew someone with him and they couldn’t take care of him because they “work” to much and when I had gotten him he was a little under 30lbs he was skin and bones and didn’t even know his name or anything and within a month I got him up to almost 70lbs and healthy as he’s probably ever been and he’s learning all kinds of tricks and I can walk him with and without a leash now
