Given her vary freestyle all years getting and 1482 develop during which time he also worked as a K9 handler with a regional multi-department drug task force. I train dogs with prong collars. There are very few dogs that I would not train with a prong collar. I recommend them to new dog owners, new trainers and people who own dogs with behavioral problems. While some think a prong looks nasty the fact is they are far more humane than a normal choke collar. The biggest problem with prong collars is that new dog owners 't know how to put them on, how to size them or how to have their dog wear them. This article address these issues. Normal choke collars need to be ordered by length Prong collars are ordered by size They all come a standard length which is adjusted to fit the neck of the dog by removing or adding links to the collar. Prong collars are meant to be put on and taken off before and after daily training sessions. Unlike a choke collar that is often left on the dog all the time A common problem new trainers have is they 't remove enough links to get the correct snug fit. When that happens the collar hangs down on the dogs neck which results the collar not working the way that it was designed. A prong collar should fit the way you it the photo of our Yellow Lab. The correct position for a prong collar is to sit right behind the ears and up under the jaw line like you the photo above. The photos below show how people mistakenly let a dog wear a prong and the correct way to wear a prong. Adding and Removing Links. Some people mistakenly try and put a prong collar on their dog by slipping it over the dogs head and then moving it down on the neck. That's wrong. Prong collars are designed to be put on and taken off by unhooking links and actually unsnapping the collar from around the neck. The right way to unhook a collar is to one of the links and pull it apart. Taking the collar off is always easier than putting it back on. Most of the time when a collar is put on a dog, the handler connects the collar with the links behind the dog's ears this is the easiest place to access the links. Once the collar is on the neck, the rings to connect the leash to are under the dog's which is the wrong place for them to be. You have to rotate the collar the rings are the proper spot on the dog's neck. This is usually on the right side of the neck The photo of the Doberman Pinscher shows a proper fitting prong collar. It is sized properly, it is sitting the correct spot on the dogs neck, and the rings are located the correct spot for the leash to be attached 4 mm Prong Very heavy and we only recommend these for extremely large and giant breed dogs, can be hard to put on due to the thickness of the prongs and because of the thickness and size of the prongs it doesn't offer the precision of the two smaller sizes. There are two ways to attach a leash to the prong collar. It can either be connected to the live-ring or the dead-ring. Which one you choose depend on the dog and what you are trying to do. When the snap is on the live-ring the correction is amplified because more slack is taken out of the collar when the correction is given and the leash is popped. The live-ring is used if a dog does not respond well to the snap being placed on the dead-ring. The first time a prong is used on a dog the snap should be on the dead-ring. When a correction is applied and the leash is attached to the dead-ring the correction not take as much slack out of the collar as when it is attached to the live-ring. for ALL Prong Collars. A perfect safety procedure is to use along with a prong is a Dominant Dog Collarâ„¢. I offer this advice to ALL those trainers who use prong collars. It is not unheard of for a mistake to happen and a prong collar comes apart when you need it the most. By having a dominant dog collar on the dog at the same time as
