The rating of this product is 0 out of 5
How to properly measure
Please put a measuring tape closely to the fur right behind the ears and under the jaw.
Mind that two fingers should slip between the collar and dog's neck. Or measure his neck and add two inches.
When the collar is on his neck it should allow you to slide two fingers under the collar and your dog's neck.
If there's extra room, you need a smaller size and you should remove links.
If both fingers don't fit, the collar is too small and some links should be added.
NEVER EVER slip the pinch collar over your dog’s head and then move it to the bottom of the neck!

Q: How do I use the prong collar not to harm my dog?
It’s really best to work together with a dog trainer, at first. They can teach you to use the collar effectively and humanely.
A prong collar is a training device and not designed for a long-term use. It is not your dog's primary collar and should not be used on casual walks or outings.
Make sure you've put it on your dog correctly. A prong collar should sit right behind the ears and under the jaw.
Use short, firm tugs when your dog pulls or lunges in response to stimuli. Then, release the pressure. Your dog should let up when he feels the pull and it's unlikely you'll need much more than a quick tug.
Q: When should I NOT use a prong collar?
No matter how you treat this tool, the prong collar is NOT suitable for:
extremely shy or fearful dogs
Q: Why can’t I use a prong collar to train my young puppy to walk nicely on a leash?
Prong collars are designed for larger, untrained dogs to teach leash manners. They are usually a last resort for dogs whose pulling problems are not resolved through other means. Puppies are new to walking and should not start off with the most intense level of training collar. Prong collars are not safe until at least 5 or 6 months of age and, even then, they are not recommended unless other training methods have been exhausted.
