Herm Sprenger Prong Dog Collar

The Herm Sprenger prong collar is one of the most recognizable and popular names in obedience training tools. A safe and effective alternative to choker collars, the prong collar puts even pressure around the neck, about every half inch, pinching the skin in a band. This collar does not apply direct pressure to the trachea so you can train your dog with little or no tugging, jerking, or pulling. Made of high-quality German steel and adjustable size, just add or remove the chrome plated links individually.

Features:

  • Interlocking links, each link equipped with two blunt prongs
  • Slightly beveled, polished prong tips
  • Easy to increase or decrease size
  • Made in Germany
Sizes:
14"L x ¾"W (2.25mm)
18"L x 1"W (3mm)
20"L x 1"W (3.25mm)
22"L x 1¼"W (3.8mm)

Sizing Instructions:
Collar should fit snugly just below the dog’s ears. Measure the circumference of dog's neck and add two inches.

Over 20 years of use, better dog control and even pull on neck gives no pinch.

We have one we bought from our dog trainer when our dog was quite young. We have run out of enlarging links as our dog grew and need a larger size. This has been the perfect collar for our dog and would recommend to any new dog owner.

would you get the medium weight for a Lab? My dog is 5 months old but is growing fast.
Margie G on Aug 22, 2014
Best Answer: I have a two year old German Shepherd and have purchased the 14 inch lightweight for her. So far, I have had very good results with this on. My trainer told me today that eventually I may have to go to a bigger one but as long as it's working for her I wouldn't need a heavier weight. Also, my trainer only recommends this brand too. Hope this helps.

Please, what is the difference in the Herm Springer collars? I can't decide which would be best, heavyweight or xtraheavyweight. I have a prong collar now that keeps falling off - even after adjusting individual prongs with pliers. I thought I would try yours but don't understand the difference. My 91lb German Shepard is extremely protective of me but I am able to manage her with this type of collar.
A shopper on Apr 22, 2015
Best Answer: I'm a professional trainer. You do not want the Heavyweight herm sprenger prong collar. You do not need anything more then a 3mm mediumweight. If you have ordered the heavyweight one I would return it and get the mediumweight. The Herm Sprenger prong collars are made in Germany and are completely rounded on the tips. A lot of poorly made prongs can fall apart very easily. If you're using pliers on yours it's time to toss it away for good.. but before you do that compare the Herm Sprenger to the one you own now and be amazed at the quality differences.

Best,
Nate

I have a 91 lb German Shepherd who is very protective of me. Which weight is best? We are in a very dire situation-someone she didn't know came too close to our boundaries when I was out. She went out to bark him away...and too many outside occurances happened. She did her job. And grabbed the person that tried to grab me. So , I need something very strong because I will not lose this part of my family.
A shopper on Apr 21, 2015
Best Answer: I have a 100+ lb Rhodesian Ridgeback and an 85lb lab. The Ridgeback uses the heavyweight prong collar, and the lab uses the light weight. I found that since getting the heavy prong collar, the Ridgeback is calmer, and easier to handle. I weigh 130 lbs and I can control him with the lightest of fingers. It took a few times for him to understand who is in control. But a few tugs, and he got the message. Good Luck. I can tell you also, that now I also, when walking him, make him sit and stay with every passerby and with cars. Just to let him know he cannot pull or walk ahead of anyone.

I am a little confused. I thought you I was never to slip it on over the dogs head, as this meant it was the wrong size? I have bought a prong collar unfortunately not a Herm, I need help every time I need to put the collar on its so hard I cant get it off also. So have I bought the wrong one? Thanking you in advance
Cathy D on May 19, 2014
Best Answer: Hi Cathy, you are correct, you never pull a closed prong collar over a dog's head. Our trainer showed us a great way to over come this: use nail polish or hobby paint, something durable and indelible is the point here, and mark one of the prongs that sits at the back of the neck facing the dog's back. This will be by the chain portion where you attach the leash. This is the prong you will open EVERY time you want to place the collar on your dog. With the collar now open, come from under neath the neck and gently close the loop at the back of the dog's neck. Squeeze prong ( the one you marked with paint) to insert into the next prong. By using this prong each and every time, you will loosen just enough so that it is not a pain to do. If the collar is too big ( it should never be tight) only time it should correct is when you gently but firmly pull the leash to press lightly into the neck. Herm Sprenger collars are ideal because they have smooth rounded ends. If collar is too big simply remove a prong one at a time until you have the perfect fit. Ideally, show your dog in collar to a highly respected trainer to confirm you are doing it correctly.
Mine is loose on our field retriever. She rarely requires a "check" because she knows the collar means obey : ) I hope this helps!

My german shephard is 40kilo wot size do i need ?
A shopper on Oct 23, 2016
Best Answer: Below I have listed the sizes, their measurements and how to fit your dog. Weight does not have any factor in which collar will work. It will be determined by measurement

Sizes:
14"L x ¾"W (2.25mm)
18"L x 1"W (3mm)
20"L x 1"W (3.25mm)
22"L x 1¼"W (3.8mm)
Sizing Instructions:
Collar should fit snugly just below the dog’s ears. Measure the circumference of dog's neck and add two inches.

Sorry but, I am I correct in thinking once I have adjusted the collar to the correct size, I can then just slip it over his head? Thanks Cathy
Cathy D on May 19, 2014
Best Answer: No! Never slip the collar over the dogs head. You need to release using the prongs (you can pick any one and it gets easier to master over time). Once you've properly fit the collar (high and tight under the ears) you want to pinch any one of the prongs and lift out so the collar is one long chain, put it on the dog, then pinch a prong and ensure the "pinch" part is securely in the little eyelets of the "s" shape. You can practice taking it on and off your leg until you feel comfortable. Putting it on over the dogs head will scrape their face/ears etc. If you can't figure it out, I'd suggest googling a "balanced trainer" in your area for help with the proper fit. There is a technique, proper fit and timing associated with these collars, so getting help will ensure you don't use it incorrectly and/or hurt the dog :)

I have a beagle/blue tick,coon hound mix about 50lb. ALSO have a lab mix who is 62lbs. What size prong collars do I need?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2017
Best Answer: Hi, I've been training dogs...labs, dobermans, etc., for many years with the 14 inch Lightweight (2.25mm) collars. I recommend you purchase the 14 inch Lightweight (2.25mm) for each of your dogs. Also purchase a few extra links of the same size 2.25mm. Be sure all links are the same size...2.25mm) You do not need anything any bigger. In fact the 14 inch Lightweight will have more links than the medium weight or heavy weight. More links to fit around a large neck give you more control so don't worry about how many links it takes to fit the collar. Again, you do not need the larger sizes that you see on dogs your size. Bigger is not better. It needs to fit snugly just below your dogs' ears. Your fingers should be able to fit between the collar and the neck. Your goal is have a loose leash when walking. Hope all this helps. Carol

My dogs 12 pound dogs swim in the Gulf waters along the shore on leash. The prong training collars from Petco rust, even though I rinse them off with tap water, dry them and even place in a warm oven to dry completely. I then have to use WD-40 to remove the rust. WILL these rust? The description in Google claims they don't. Petco said their's don't rust....but they do.
Christine H on Jan 16, 2015
Best Answer: No they will not rust. I've been using these collars for 4 years and frequently take my dogs swimming. With that being said if you get salt water on them I do rinse them off with fresh water just as added precaution. These are the best prong collars on the market. Coming from Petco's to these are a night and day difference in both the quality of the link but also the comfort level. If you look at the links on a Petco or Petsmart brand you will notice the points on the links are somewhat "machine cut" and can sometimes be rough on the finger tips when you feel them. These collars offer perfectly dull-rounded link tips. Hope this helps you make the purchase.

We need a collar for a 4 month old Jack Russell?
Mattie on Dec 10, 2014
Best Answer: I would try the 14" collar first and remove links, this may still be too big. Remember it must fit high and tight just below pups ears. There is a micro sized collar out there but not made by herm sprenger, you may want to try both.
remember this does NOT slip over the dogs head instead you must assemble each time you put on the dog.
Please get training first before you use this powerful tool. a very light touch (NEVER a correction) is all that is needed and remember to release tension the second the dog complies.

What size should I get for a 33lb 4month old standard poodle?
A shopper on Jan 25, 2017
Best Answer: I have a 100+ pound mastiff, which is MUCH different (in build and behavior/ drive) from even a standard poodle- particularly a young pup. Please keep in mind that a prong collar is a training tool ONLY! If you do opt for a prong collar engage it with briefly, with restraint and only as needed. Another, less extreme option might be a martingale type leash. It utilizes some of the same... gripping sensation with significantly less potential for injury. Good luck

how many links in the lightweight hermsprenger prong collar?
A shopper on Aug 3, 2015
Best Answer: There are 10 links in the collar. How many you use depends on the size of your dog's neck. the collar should fit around the neck but not tight or really loose, just touching. If you have a big dog extra links may be needed. You let the dog pull to use it. NEVER pull on the dog.

Does this collar have quick release? I'm looking for one without it
Jennifer A on Jun 20, 2016
Best Answer: Just an FYI, the larger the prongs, the harder they are to squeeze to fasten and unfasten. A quick release may actually be better for a collar this size.

herm springer lightweight prong is 2.5MM prong?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2015
Best Answer: Either will work and last just fine. That said, learning pressure release techniques and proper leash skills from a trainer, will aid you in having success with this collar. Also be aware that some dogs (often Pitfalls) have sensitivity issues with metal collars. Watch the area of the neck that makes contact with the collar for red irritated skin. If that is an issue for you, you can purchase rubber nubs to go over the prongs, potentially remedying this problem. A proper fit will be dictated by being able to insert no more than two fingers between the collar and the back of the neck. Proper fit is crucial. Hope this helps.

Why does the collar turn my dogs neck black ?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2017
Best Answer: In all the years I've been using herm sprenger collars, I've never seen that. As a professional dog trainer, I can only think that maybe dirt gets caught in the individual prongs, especially if collar is on for any length of time, also maybe from getting wet, and another reason is dog could be allergic to the metal. I hope this helps you.
