Product Summary:

Herm Sprenger Snap 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, it 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.


  • Interlocking links, each link equipped with two blunt prongs
  • Solid fastener plate
  • Scissor snap
  • Slightly beveled, polished prong tips
  • Easy to increase or decrease size
  • Made in Germany
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 one inch.

As a dog trainer I use these on bigger and hard to handle dogs, they really don't hurt and I just let them self correct. The snap on is awesome, so much easier to put on.

This is the best type of prong collar to buy. The edges are dulled down and it's made by good materials. If you are looking for quality, this is the brand to purchase.

BETTY E on Sep 6, 2018
Wanted to assure I was ordering the genuine product. I had an original one for over 20 years and wanted a new one. I purchased a pinch collar at pet store and the prongs were sharp and hard to work with. My dog pulled and one of the prongs was tweaked so I could not pinch to get it off anymore. Hence going for the quick release this time with the REAL deal.
Marie J on Aug 4, 2018
Lost a Herm Sprenger prong collar and want the same with the snap (quick release).
We liked it very much. Good quality and convenient.

Lost his collar. Prefer this. He hates the gentle leader. Martingale just chokes him. He doesn't even offer to pull with the prong. Here's the jingle and never even connects.

Good quality German made buckle training collars never fail!!! The only type of prong collar I ever recommend to my training clients.

I have used this training collar for several dogs over the years. I highly recommend!! Ut makes training very easy! I walk three big dogs and all my dogs heel and do not pull. Love it!!
Sheree G on Jan 10, 2018
As a professional Dog Trainer I have tried many different collars. When used properly a Prong or (pinch) collar is a wonderful tool. Herm Sprenger is the highest of quality and the only collar that I will carry in my shop or recommend to clients.

Beth S on Aug 15, 2017
My small rescue dog came to us with leash aggression. We hired a trainer who introduced him to the prong collar, and nothing has worked better. The problem with the snap prong: It loosens up and doesn't hold its clasp long, and now our little one has freed himself in the middle of a walk several times -- so beware as the snap prong collar ages. That said, we're replacing it and not thinking of changing to a new type because it works like a dream.
Mary M on Aug 13, 2017
As I'm a trainer, this collar is much preferred to a choke chain. I always make my students try the different collars on their arm so they know just how it feels on their dog. I have referred to this as "self correcting" as the dog hits the end of the leash, collar closes and releases when pressure is off. Super important for owners to learn how to use any collar. It's not for everyone or every dog. Still a good training collar.
Rebecca W on Aug 10, 2017

I have an aggressive dog. It was either rehome her or go to the mat and train her. The prong collar is the answer. Her alpha behavior is curbed after I borrowed a friends Herm S. I didn't think I could reach this dog until HS.
Michele R on May 15, 2017
Chose this because of the snap closer which makes it much simpler to put on the dog. Also the quality and performance of the product.

I've hesitated to use this particular kind of collar but I have a female GSD that literally pulls me to the ground she is so strong. I am hoping this will stop her pulling because I have tried the other no pull leashes and they are not stopping her.. we shall see :-)
Tina B on Apr 1, 2017
Recommended by my trainer and the quick release makes it easier to put on and take off.
Karen C on Mar 20, 2017
I like this collar because I need that quick snap out. It's hard enough for me to get the extra links out. There is no way on a daily basis I could pinch this thing. It works wonderful on my dog. I adopted a 7 year old who did not know how to walk on a leash. I have a bad back and this helps. He is doing better on the leash with this collar.

My dog's trainer recommended it
Roberta B on Feb 12, 2017
I've been training dogs for a couple of years now and Herm Sprenger collars are the best in terms of quality, reliability and results in the dogs you work with. And trust me at this price they're a STEAL!!! especially considering the price for one of these at most pet stores or training facilities i've been to. There is a reason i buy them here.
mariano a on Jan 26, 2017
We borrowed one from a friend and it worked.
Jennifer J on Jan 14, 2017
This collar got mostly good to great reviews, I think the bad reviews were by people who did not know how to correctly size this for their pooch, I have tried everything to keep my boxer from pulling, a friend who was a sheriff with a service dog HIGHLY recommended this type of collar for training your dog not to pull when on a leash. My fur son means the world to me, but the pulling and the getting out of other collars and harness to run until he pooped out just was not cutting it.

Does this collar snap on like a normal collar or does this go over the dogs head?
Michele Y on Feb 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hi Michele,
I am a dog trainer (for over 20 years now). The Sprenger prong is the only prong collar I will purchase for my clients. It is the most reliable of prong collars for dog owners--the best-made, etc. Sprenger has been making collars for a LONG time.
As far as your question--this collar is a training collar. It should never be left on a dog unsupervised, and should fit firmly around the dog's neck (preferably centered behind the ears). It should not move around on the dog's neck while never impeding the dog's breathing. You open the snap, and place under the dog's chin and into place. The "O Ring" should be directly on the the dog's top of the neck, while the "D Ring" is what you attach your leash to. I always encourage clients to use a carabeener-type of snap to secure the prong to the flat-buckle collar via the "O Ring" and the ring on the flat buckle collar you would normally place a leash--this way you will not risk losing your dog should one of the prongs come undone. Hope this helps! Good luck!
Does this actually have a buckle, or how does it work? I have issues with my pet store prongs for snapping it together. What's the difference here?
Shawnie on Sep 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have also had issues with pet store pinch collars because the steel is less springy and so more difficult to take apart and put back together. These collars can be taken apart two different ways: you can either take them apart between any two links which is probably the same as your pet store collar, or you can use the quick-release mechanism. This is easy but people often get confused when they try to put it back together. My advice is to lay it out on a table and take a picture of it before you take it apart or refer back to the picture on this website. Try it a few time without the dog and then you should have no problem. Hope that helps.
can i leave the collar on all the time?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, you can not leave a prong collar on all the time. It would be uncomfortable for the dog to lay down with this type of collar. Prong collars are used to help train a dog not to pull when going for walks. A properly fitted prong sits high on the neck and is just snug enough not to continually slide down to the base of the neck. Getting the correct fit may require that you add or remove prongs. Prong collars require very minimal corrections and pressure should only be applied IF the dog is pulling. As soon as the dog is walking without pulling, the leash pressure is released.
will this collar work on a dog that is 100 lbs? I have an 8 month old newfoundland puppy and we have outgrown the smaller collers
Nikki H on Nov 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Measure the dog's neck just behind the ears. If the measurement is 20 inches or less yes.it will fit.
If the measurement is larger, purchase additional links and add to the other lengths.
Please be aware that the collar must be fitted to the dog such that it is snug on the neck.

Is this an authentic Herm Sprenger collar?
Chenry on Oct 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I bought this for my GSD AND IT WORKED GREAT. She stopped pulling on the first walk. It has quick release which is nice.. You can also order extra links if you need to make larger. It's been a year since I bought this but it's a high quality collar. H. Kingsbury
what size mm should you use for 100lb Rottweiler with herm sprenger prong collar?
tammy z on Jan 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Get an 18 inch one and add links until it fits and stays up around the middle area of the dog's neck (halfway between skull and neck base.) I do not like the heavier ones because I believe it grabs muscle, not just skin. If your Rottie is sparsely coated, do the same thing with a lighter one instead. I had to add 4 links to my 100# shepherd's 18 inch collar.
is this stainless steel?
Michele T on May 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am pretty sure this is stainless steel but I don't have the original packaging any longer to check what the manufacturer says. Rust is definitely not an issue, as we get it wet in the rain and water does not rust or weather the collar.
number of prongs are in a 14 inch snap prong collar?
A shopper on Mar 17, 2015

What’s the difference between the Sprenger snap prong collar and the Sprenger prong collar?
MaryBeth F on Mar 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The difference is the snap on each collar, the snap has a snap feature to open and close the collar. The original does not have an opening, it slides over the pets head.
what size is large? Is 20 inches considered large? I'm trying to match a prong collar I already have.
A shopper on Nov 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The sizes of these are easily changed by adding or removing links. I would measure the length of the collar that you have, and order accordingly.
