Rated 5 out of 5 by Kevin827 Great Collar
The prong collar is a great and SAFE training collar. It didn't put strain on my dogs throat like a standard fabric or leather collar would or even a choke chain. It takes some practice to take apart and put together (you should take it apart in the middle to make it easier), but it's a piece of cake once you get the hang of it, even when your dog is squirming from excitement (they learn the collar means they might go for a walk, they don't associate it with anything bad if you use it right). After 1 hour plus walks in the rain and on chilly nights, it has yet to show signs of rusting, weakening, or discoloration. This collar is a great tool for controlling your dog AND changing behavior (if you use the right techniques and mindset). One of the best products I've ever bought. Don't turn your nose up at it just because it looks bad and what many people have led you to believe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GraysonAmanda No More Pulling!
Okay I admit this product looks super cruel and harmful, but it's not at all . I have a 1.5 year old 85lb German Shepherd/Pit Bull mix that pulled so hard on walks that it made it nearly impossible (for either of us) to enjoy a walk. After purchasing this collar, I'm happy to say he no longer pulls! From the moment we put it on him, it was an instant fix. And he doesn't whine or freak out when it's on him so I know it's not hurting him. It just corrects the pulling. I can't believe I waited this long before purchasing it. So happy to be able to walk my dog again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shepherdad This is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. My German Shepherd puppy at 8 months weighs 80 pounds and can pull my 200 pound body with ease. Frustrations with her pulling me everywhere forced me to try one though I was hesitant at first. It looked evil and cruel. She will now walk beside me like a pro. I would never do anything to hurt my baby and I even put it around my own neck to see what it did. It's harmless. I love it and will recommend to anyone !!!

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.
