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'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

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.
This Has Been a Life Saver

OK so I have read every review about this collar. My first thoughts were that, yes, it looks good but the proof will be in walk taming Fergus my 8 month old Bernedoodle. The pups genetics insured that he would PULL against any flat collar. True dat! From day one Fergus was the puppy equivalent of a green and yellow Farm Tractor. This collar has made me a BELIEVER! Our walks together are now pleasant instead of painful for us both. Still pulls against a flat collar but who cares? He is a perfect pup with this collar afixed. Recommend do buy if your pup is like mine!
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.
Breaks open/falls off while in use!
on Sep 14, 2021
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.
it works great!

I took my dog Percy out with it and he likes to pull really hard and bark at other dogs and sometimes people and this is the First time he did not pull or do any of those behaviors at all this is a great collar. I really didn’t want to get him a collar like this but one of our cities police officers said that some dogs are just like that so he suggested it to me so thank you and I can’t remember his last name but thank you sooo much! Our walks I think are going to be much better for both of us
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
Great customer service
on Aug 8, 2021
This collar works well, but it's the only style of prong collar I've ever worn so I can't offer much if you're comparing brands. The main reason I'm having my human type this review is to praise Chewy's customer service. My human ordered the wrong size collar at first and Chewy's support with reordering me a new collar was so easy and fast I barely had time to notice I didn't have a collar! Thanks for taking care of rescue dogs like me!

This is a horrible product. The size chart is completely wrong. I bought a size 14 for my 40 pound dog and it wont even fit over her head. Says its for dogs up to 60 pounds, not true. Dont waste your money.
