Mishka&Milo Attachment 209593 I'm with the 2.3-2.5 sprenger. The corrections are clearer and my girl can't even feel it until I issue the correction. It is very lightweight

jocoyn I think the medium is typically the best size the 3.25 millimeters I believe....... The small apparently gives a harsher correction but it can be hard to get through thick neck hair. Then links on the first saver are too long to make it really effective as a correction tool ....

Thanks
Once I took out the last link, I did not have that problem with the regular collar but that is good to know! I honestly don't give a lot of corrections anymore though.

CharlieB.Barkin I think I'll give a HS bi-directional prong a try. Does the size of the prongs matter?

What about the Fur Savers? Are they really any different from your average choke chain?

On top of that the width of the collar is more narrow than a regular prong or even most regular flat collars. This leads to a dog basically choking itself if it's pulling. Way too narrow for my dogs neck. It's like a rope. Once you put it on it basically disappears around the dogs neck. That's why you don't see very many examples of it on a gsds neck in Google images. It's always around necks of dogs with no hair so they can see the neck tech.

A regular prong is much more effective. I'd say you have to give around twice the force to get the same correction from the neck tech. They do look nice and could work for a softer dog but for a hard dog or one that's in drive then no way!
Thanks

t seems like there is some negative opinion about the neck-tech collars. Does anyone have first hand experience that they would like to share, other than "they suck?"

Thanks

Shade Collars - Prong Collars - Curogan and Antique - Ultra Plus Training Collar - Curogan - K-9 Dynamics

This is the one I bought, fantastic collar and really great quality. I love the look of the curogan. It's a 3.25 and works just fine

I was leery at first at all the hype of the HS but after seeing and using one, they're worth the money

jocoyn I like the smooth rounded tips on the HS as well as the flat plate which makes putting it on and taking it off so much easier. The bi-directional prongs with the plate in the middle...that is NOT the neck tech but the new design. I remember reading that as for some purpose?

Bane Vom Vox I have an 8 yr old HS prong that look like the day I got it. Best by far
