Hi,
I was hoping someone could recommend to me a comfortable yet strong collar for my GSD.

My GSD is two years old and weighs 98 pounds. He is a rescue dog and very protective when out walking.

I've had a look through the forums here and also online and seen agitation collar with a handle on it which looks perfect. But does this type of collar agitate the dog?

I wouldn't like to cause any discomfort or stress to him when out walking, I'm looking for a strong yet comfortable collar for him that gives me good control if another dog or dogs approaches us that are off their leads I can hold him back.

Thanks

Welcome, GSD IRL!!
No, it doesn't agitate the dog, but it might agitate the coat.
I would get a good rolled buckle collar and work with your dog on showing neutral behaviors with other dogs.
