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?

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.

Herm Sprenger, 3.25mm. I use the chrome plated ones. Easier on my hands to get the on and off than the stainless steel.

Be careful with Amazon. I have historically ordered 3 prongs from them. 2 were cheap knockoffs. It seems the black ones and currogan ones are usually the real deal. The chrome ones are easy for people to make knock offs of. So if you have to go Prime (I live by Prime) get either a black or currogan(sp?) one

This.

We went with stainless steel, though, to resist rust. The chrome eventually wore off at the joints for us. Could be I got a knock-off.
