|Blanketback||If the prong collar is fitted correctly, as you know, it will tighten like a martingale collar and the correction will be the individual links giving an equal distribution. If it's loose and way too big, hanging low - then when you expect the equal distribution, that's not going to happen. What will happen is that the links will grab and pinch the excess skin instead, because there's too much give in the collar. Make sense, lol? IDK anything about micro sized prongs.|

also what about something someone said here, that using a micro prong on a large dog can injure them
I don't believe it either just wondering why this was said.

I have never seen a dog damaged by a prong collar. Never.
Here is a good primer for prong collar use.

|email@example.com||make sure you have a professional instruct you on how to use the prong. my trainer made sure it was a proper fit for my dog, and then trained me how to use it properly. You can do a lot of damage to a dog if used incorrectly.|
