Teaching your dog to sit, stay and heel at your command is easier with the Ultra-Plus Stainless Training Collar with Latch from Herm Springer. This safe and convenient training tool is designed to let dogs know when it’s time to heel. It's made with blunt prongs that help to guide your dog without hurting him. This works because the patented center plate mimics the way a mother uses her mouth to correct her puppies' behavior—the prongs gently pinch the back of his neck, signaling he should stop and listen. It’s great for taking large dogs or tough pullers on a walk, protecting you and your best bud from getting into a dangerous situation. Replacement links are available if you need to create a more custom fit.
Designed to help you train your dog—especially commands like heel, sit and stay.
Features a quick-release snap that helps both you and your pup feel secure.
Gently pinches your dog's neck, mimicking the pinch a mother dog gives her puppies.
Great for walking strong pullers and large dogs, or during obedience training.
Replacement links are 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.
Used properly, this collar quickly helps your dog walk nicely on leash. Our first walk with the collar was like night and day. After 3 - 4 moderate pulls, he settled right down. I highly suggest watching videos about the use of a prong collar.
Prong Collar that works!
on Dec 19, 2021
I had another prong collar (the kind where the prongs go the same way) and the links kept slipping and the collar would fall off mid-walk. No good for my reactive pup! I got this one and adjusted it and the links stay together and it's easy to get on and off with the clip. It also seems to fit better than the ones where the prongs all go in the same direction. With it adjusted my dog seems more responsive to this collar than other prong collars we've used.
Very strong correctional tool
on Jan 11, 2022
My dog is very touch sensitive, so I feel like this is a bit of a strong tool for her. That being said, the quality is amazing, and I will only use HS from here on out. I am going to try to HS chain instead, and see which works better for my girl.
Not stainless steel (nickel allergy alert)
on Dec 27, 2021
Listing description says stainless steel, but it is actually chrome plated which contains NICKEL which my dog is sensitive to, hence why I (thought) I purchased stainless steel. Just something to keep in mind. Also, the actual latch is very weak so make sure you have a backup collar attached.
Great TRAINING Tool

I have a yellow lab that wants to be the Alpha. As soon as I put the quick release prong collar on her she instantly changed her personality and obeyed my commands that she knew. She stopped fighting me for dominance. Just remember that this is only a training collar until your dog learns her/his commands or needs to be refreshed every so often. Also please read the instructions on how to properly put this collar on you dog.
You put it on

There is no need for this collar you put this on your neck and see how it works needs to be outlaw to where this collar

I am really happy with this collar. It was recommended to me by my French Bulldog's trainer. When he first mentioned a "prong" collar I nearly flipped out. BUT, if used correctly it is a game changer. My vet approved using this collar so I have since ordered 2 more. My Chug constantly barks at dogs on walks. I am amazed at how quick we are able to stop that barking with this collar.
Not a fan!

Cheaply made and too flimsy for our 6 mo old lab mix. Spend a bit more for something better made and sturdier.
Works great for nervous dog

I bought this because my rescue doodle is scared of everything and this helps him focus on me instead of everything else that makes a sound. There is no pinching and it does not hurt him in any way. It simply helps me communicate with him on the leash.
13 week ACD puppy -- 14" Herm Spring Prong Collar with Latch
on Aug 11, 2021
Arrived messed up; however enlarged picture and was able to make it look just like the picture.
Size 14" (2.5) minus 3 prongs fit just under the ears (too small to remove 4 prongs so I latched it on the 2nd chain link to make it fit). My 13 week, 25 lb. ACD puppy is all muscle and is extremely strong. She pulls so hard on the leash, I am afraid she will damage or collapse her trachea. Twice, she almost knocked me off my feet and once bolted into the house throwing me into the metal part of the glass sliding door including straining my shoulder joint. In desperation to stop her from pulling, after watching videos on how to fit and use a H.S. Prong Collar, decided to give it a try. So gladArrived messed up; however enlarged picture and was able to make it look just like the picture.

In desperation to stop her from pulling, after watching videos on how to fit and use a H.S. Prong Collar, decided to give it a try. So glad I got the latch; otherwise, I would have never been able to get my hyper-active puppy to sit still long enough to squeeze a link to get it on or off.
I decided to try this collar to stop her from pulling. The first time trying it out, I did not even have a chance to correct her, she bolted out the door, I gave the command wait (she knows it means to sit until I am out the door), she ignored me and the moment she put pressure on the leash, started yelping and ran back to me. It scared me at first, but she did not incur any damage ... I think it scared her. Immediately she walked by my side without pulling, ever so often looking at me for direction. It was so nice not to have her pulling on the leash and walking like a well behaved calm dog.… more
