Coastal Pet Products DCP15518 Titan Snap-On Prong Training Collar with 1-Handed Quick Snap Style, 18-Inch, Chrome
First, it’s very important you understand this is a training collar and not intended for regular wear! We have two large German shepherds (boy and girl) that at 1 year we’re 60 and 70 lbs and now at 2 years closer to 70-80lbs. Walking these monsters was a nightmare as they hadn’t yet been trained when we slapped a regular old collar on them, being puppies and all, and weren’t responding to commands as they didn’t know what we expected. Our dog trainer brought these over and showed us how to walk the dogs and not let them walk us. A couple gentle tugs on the leash and they quickly learned to walk beside us rather than in front of us or tugging us. Say what you will but you probably look like a fool if your “totally against” these types of training tools; not to mention we’ve had Swedish dog training professionals in town telling us to use the same thing! These things were a quick and easy fix, totally affordable and worked! They get 4/5 stars from me because I do still feel they’re a little harsh and want people to be aware they are for training purposes ONLY! Take them off your pet when you’re done with that long walk, when they lay down to chill the prongs can dig in their neck and that’s not the intended use!
I am absolutely against products like this.. too many people abuse their dogs with them and it really is a lazy persons means of attempting to train their pet. As well too many animals have been abused with these even though the prongs are not sharp or pointed. If worn the wrong way they can cause damage to the trachea, and even cause a dog to hang its self if the dog gets this collar caught on any thing outside. The reward of training your pet to not pull or jump with a simple nylon collar and patients is far more rewarding that the need for "instant gratification". As well these collars are used for the human appearance of having a "aggressive" dog which physically can give the dog a wrong impression of someone who is approaching it due to the symbolism that the collar has now.
