Rated 1 out of 5 by TattooedOpinion Horrible Quality
I have a 1-year-old GSD (65lbs - so fairly small) who can be a lil hyper. We use a prong from time to time for difficult situations. He had a chrome one that rusted in the ocean water during a beach vacation in June, so before trying to have to haul him, his crate, and all of our stuff from a rental car drop off to the bus to the airport by myself (and then deal with everything at the airport) I bought this for him. June 13th. We don't use it too often at home, I prefer an E-collar because I have weak wrists. My pup decided he wanted to go say hi to a neighbor dog and lunged. There was NO resistance as a link in the collar broke and my pup was GONE. I'm glad it had been another dog with an owner who let me use their dog to trick my strong-willed pup (he actually can be FAIRLY obedient, but not with dogs as distractions - the high level on the E-collar doesn't even do anything -- and it's a good collar). I knew NOT to get the kind with the quick release, but I did b/c I wanted the pretty blue. I thought the quick release would be the part that broke. It broke on July 8th - not even a month in. I'm now going to Leerburg to purchase a dominate dog collar, a new prong, and a special prong leash that lets me have my dog on a prong AND still be attached to a regular collar as a safety back-up. I'm never going to buy a prong from Top Paw again. This is the second one that broke, and our 3rd overall in 9 months.

I couldn't get the collar to stay prongs down, they kept just rolling to facing up, completely defeating the purpose

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mickeythedog Stopped the pulling...Love the Color!
I have a strong bull terrier and was told by a trainer to purchase this training collar to control the pulling he does during our walks. I wasn't familiar with this type of collar so I went and reviewed it at the store. I was happy to see a clip attached to easily release and put on the collar. I also loved the Blue color which I haven't seen on a chain before. I started using it this weekend and I have to say he responded pretty quickly which was a relief to me and my arm. The blue color chain looks awesome too. I recommend this...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rescuingmommy This collar has been a reliever
I own a rescue and I just recently rescued a great dane (7 months). I stumbled into Petsmart browsing the training collars and came across this style of collar. I have always been leary about using prongs but the quality seemed durable and the color was adorable. I haven't looked back since! This has been a lifesaver for myself and other who help walk Ox. The finishing is still in tact and we have had no issues with him pulling since. I am buying a few more for my other larger breeds.
