Rated 5 out of 5 by MomofSixTeacherOf100s Not a torture device
What an amazing design for a collar-- it works beautifully.
When I first saw this collar, I was appalled. It looks like some horrible device designed for torture. But we have a border collie who has grown from a tiny fluff-ball to a dog half my size and twice my energy level. With a standard harness, our dog would haul me across the yard with no resistance. With a conventional "choker" collar, he would panic and nearly strangle himself. I was desperate enough to give this collar a try after reading all the positive reviews.
We tried it last night for the first time. The collar design makes it where it does not have to go over the dog's head, which is a plus. We got the collar on the dog very easily and he responded beautifully. He walked all around the backyard without a hitch. If he got too energetic, the collar would tighten a little, and he would immediately back down with no sign of panic. I love this collar and now I can walk my dog without fear of him hurting himself or me.

I'm not one for writing product reviews but I simply had to write a review for this product. I have a 8 month old miniature schnauzer that would, for various reasons, always pull on the leash when outside. I saw immediate results after putting the collar on him. He tugged a couple times and got the message. I'd definitely recommend this training collar to people with dogs that pull when walking on a leash.

by Karlitalanda Love it!!!
My dog used to walk me all the time.
I hated to be outside with him.
I couldnt walk him.
It was very bad.
I am very skinny.
So you can actually picture it.
I bought this product and I love it!!!
It works great and he is used it, I like to walk him and he listens, so that is good. Best product ever. If you are the kind of person that YOUR DOG WALKS YOU. Then this is your answer. Pluss if you dont know how to put it, their is a bunch of videos online. Or the people at petsmart are very nice and they will teach you. This very nice lady told me how to put it on tobby. I love it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PitBullMama14 I'm so in awe right now.
My husband and I just adopted a 4 year old Pit Bull from our local shelter about two and a half weeks ago. He's such a sweetie, and a joy to have in our lives. He went into the shelter as a stray so we had no prior history. So far we've had no issues introducing him to people, or big dogs. Little dogs and other animals are a different story, and his leash manners were atrocious. Nothing could get his attention off of the small animals he'd see out on our walks, not sounds, commands, pulling, or treats. Nothing worked. We started watching training videos about prong collars and even though I had always thought they were mean, I realized I actually knew nothing about them. We picked up the Top Paw prong collar today from PetSmart, came home and refreshed our knowledge on how to fit/use it properly and went for it. We just witnessed, within 3 minutes of our dog having the collar on, a complete 180 in his leash temperament. The Top Paw prong collar has rounded tips on each prong so that they won't scratch, or puncture the dogs skin. Before he pulled like a freight train (no exaggeration, if I could post a picture of his muscles I would and you'd believe me when I say freight train) and now he doesn't pull at all. Night and day difference. PLEASE, if your dog takes YOU for walks, look into this, but educate yourself on proper use first. If it hurts your dog, your doing something wrong. I'm SO pleased we finally decided to go this route and I'm so glad PetSmart had a reasonably priced option locally for us. We just walked him past two or three little dogs in our complex and while he tried to go say hello at first, he quickly corrected himself and our rotator cuffs are still in good shape! ;)
