To use in case your prong comes apart on you?

It's ok, but I find that a good quality (Herm Springer) collar, fitted properly, pretty reliable on it's own.

The Leerburg Dominant Dog collar is essentially a nylon choke collar. Most pet stores carry them, made from thin nylon cord, for about $4, or you can get the thicker Mountain Choke for around $7. The difference is that those are not snap-around collars, but are pulled over the head like you would a choke chain.

I have never used a backup collar with my prong, but I have had my prong come apart once. My fault, it wasn't on right.

Is this a type of collar that's easy to make? It seems pretty easy- dead ring, floater ring, bolt snap, and the nylon cord. Wouldn't mind trying to make one myself.

I have them for both our dogs - to use by themselves - and really like them. I can attest to the quality of the Leerburg one. It is VERY strong. Our Otto would break chains and leather when we first got him, but was unable to break this one (and now is trained, so we no longer have such problems!).

The important part of it is the fit - if fitted properly, achieved because of the snap-around, it is very snug and stays at the top of the neck quite well. This collar is aka "Volhard collar" or "snap-around collar" and was used in Luther's Volhard-based OB classes - on the dead ring.

I would think it a great backup for the prong - it's small/thin and holding its position on the neck would keep it from interfering with the prong too much if at all.
