|Curogan Dog Pinch Collar 23 inch - Herm Sprenger 50004 (3.25mm)
A short list of people/dog teams that have benefited from the use of prong collars.
- Small people with large dogs.
- Any person with a dog that seems calm but suddenly bursts into action in some circumstances.
- People with dogs that are pullers. (dogs choke/gag on a slip collar or ignore a buckle collar)
- Disabled people with limited strength or range-of-motion to properly 'snap' correct a dog wearing a slip collar. A light touch is all that is needed. Sometimes the collars are put into a cloth tube .
- Person with dogs with damaged trachea or collapsing tracheas.
- Person 'fine-tuning' a dog's responses to commands.
- Bouncy puppies that are difficult to control in any other collars.
- Walking more than one of these dogs at the same time - you don't want ride your belly like a skate board while 200 or 300 some pounds of Anatolian in a team or troika take off with you.
- Walking a large protective dog at night in an area where the normally calm dog is walking high on his toes, ready to react before you are. He is on 'predator alert'.
properly fitted choke chain is very important in
training. It should be the size of the dogs neck
plus 2 inches. If your choke chain goes over your
dogs head a little snug that's alright because
most breed of dogs have a larger head than neck.
Now to put the choke chain on right drop the
chain through either ring and make the letter P
of the alphabet. Now with you looking at the
letter P slip it over your dogs head. With your
dog on your left hand side if you pop up on the
leash and release- the choke chain should also
release the tension on the dogs neck. If you are
using a pinch collar remember it does not go over
your dogs head, you must unhook it at a link in
the collar then go around your dogs neck and hook
the collar back together. You can add or subtract
links from a pinch collar to change sizes. A
pinch collar should fit semi snug on your dog. If
a pinch collar is fitted too loose it will not
give an effective correction.
