Prong Collar Recomendations

My breeder is holding a session this weekend for all litter owners on introducing a prong collar. It’s been 10 years since I have bought one. Got any favorite brands for me?

Please and thanks.

Herm Sprenger Curogen 3.25mm links. The links are just the right size, not too big or small and curogen metal is a little softer and lighter so it has a better feel to the handler.

Nice, thank you! He said to get a large one and remove prongs. Pup is almost 5 months, I assume the Herm will work this way and last to adult size by adding back?

Yes. If you shop around, you can find them cheaper. I think I paid $45 for mine. They will not rust and will last.

Thanks Chip. I will shop around. Need it by Saturday though, so I may have to go with Amazon.

Herm Sprenger online retail has them for $39.99. Don't know what shipping would cost or how long it would take. I was lucky because the equipment co. is down the street from me and I didn't have to pay shipping or wait.

$9 bucks for ground, not an option and $19 bucks for “urgent” 3-5 days lol. I’ll got with Amazon next day.

That is pricey, but I think you will like it much more than stainless steel.
