Fur Savers?

So I always see pictures of dogs wearing these and I wonder what they are actually for? Are they similar to prong or choke collars?

Can be used as a choke if hook the lead to the live ring, but I don't think many use them for that purpose. Definitely not a prong collar. They're used in IPO, don't know why.

From what I understand, it's in their name. They don't flatten the fur as much during training, so hair follicles aren't always being tugged or pushed down in a specific area. You'll often see a dog with a thicker coat who wears a flat all the time has a very visible collar line in their fur. They're used in place of a choke, too.

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.
