The prong collar is an extremely effective alternative to a choke chain for controlling your dog when going for a walk, and is ideal for owners who's dogs pull on the lead. The pinch collar
is gentle method of restraining your dogs tendency to choke itself while putting unnecessary pressure on the neck. When used correctly the collar offers fantastic and instantly noticeable
results. We highly recommend using the collar sensibly as not to hurt your dog, and if you're uncertain at any point, please stop and consult a qualified trainer. The prong collar is
best suited for use with a short lead where keeping the dog close to you allows better control. The assumption that this collar ‘pinches’ when on the dog and pressure is applied, is a
falsehood. It neither pinches or pokes the neck in a way that would cause injury.
When putting the prong collar on your dog there is no particular place you or your dog needs to stand or sit. Since you will be simply separating links to put it on, there is no right or wrong way for it to lay on the neck. The only consideration would be if the collar is too loose or too tight. Refrain from slipping this kind of collar over your dog’s head to keep from injuring the eyes. Don’t allow your dog to wear the prong collar with the prongs facing outward (inside out). The collar should be removed when the dog is off the leash and has space to run or play, the prong collar is not a replacement for your dog's usual collar and can be used in conjunction with almost any collar your dog wears daily.
A general example of dog sizes below may be used as a guide only, please ensure you measure your dog's neck properly before adjusting and putting on the prong collar. The collar can be adjusted very easily by adding or removing links.
