This has been a fantastic addition for the training of our dog. He has been much more controllable and responsive since we have included this in his training program.
I first bought a Herm Sprenger Prong Collar for my 4yo desexed male Dobermann, Busta (as in Rhymes - we didn't name him - he's a rehome) 12 months ago.
He is VERY dog reactive and simply WOULD not walk nicely on leash even if there were no other dogs around. If he even thought he could see or hear another dog way off in the distance he would literally drag us along until he found it. When he makes up his mind to get to something he is unbelievably strong and nothing could stop him. My partner is a big, solid, strong man and Busta pulled him off his feet and dragged him several times as if he were a rag doll. Busta also did the same to me with the result being we sustained some quite nasty injuries from which we still bear the scars.
We spent hundreds of dollars buying different collars, harnesses, leashes, seeing multiple dog trainers (all of whom used different training methods - many of which completely contradicted each other) - you name it, we spent the money and tried it.
Then I discovered Steve Courtney and I really liked his training methodology. I spent hours watching his videos and reading his blogs and was convinced his training methods were consistent with my beliefs about how dogs should be trained. Plus he also gets results.
Unfortunately for us, but fantastic for him, he is always booked out for months. We couldn't get Busta on a course until the following year (May 2018). I asked Steve whether there was anyone in Brisbane he could recommend until we could get Busta on one of his Board and Train Courses. As it happens there is a trainer in Brisbane whom Steve mentored and works with.
When I phoned Nicole Leyden she said "it sounds as if we will probably need to use a prong collar with him." I thought to myself "NOT. A. CHANCE!!! I'm never, in my lifetime, using that type of device on my dog. NOT EVER!!!"
I took him to Nicole's and we spent nearly 3 hours watching him reacting to her dogs. He would react and then lie quietly. Every time we thought he had calmed down and was okay with her dog, he would go berserk and try to get at it.
We put a stabilisation collar on him and the behaviour kept repeating - over and over and over throughout the session.
Then Nicole asked me to trust her to try something. She put a Herm Sprenger collar on him and the change was, quite literally, unbelievable and miraculous.
We worked him in the prong collar with her dog close by and I am completely serious when I say he immediately, after a couple of very light corrections, stopped pulling, lunging, barking and snarling. He also immediately, of his own volition, started walking on a loose leash in the perfect position by my side - something he had never done from the day we brought him home.
This original collar I'm referring to, was silver and I received a lot of negative attention in the form of verbal and physical abuse from complete strangers (many of them not dog owners). I even had one woman physcially assault me while I was sitting at a cafe having lunch with a friend (Busta was lying quietly and happily on his place mat by my feet). She walked past, stopped, turned around and said "Is that a Prong Collar on that dog." I ignored her and she grabbed the leash, tried to wrestle Busta away from me and then tried to remove Busta's prong collar. He was terrified and wouldn't let her touch him. He managed to struggle away from her and back to me. When the woman realised she was attracting a lot of attention had a number of witnesses to her assault she let go and ran off.
We have since acquired a second Dobermann - Jagger - 3yo undesexed male. He had no leash skills at all and was dragging us all over the place. If he wanted to go in a certain direction - we were going in that direction whether we liked it or not.
I immediately went on K9 Pro's website to order another Herm Sprenger Prong Collar. That was when I realised it came in black. So I ordered two - one for Busta and one for Jagger.
The black collars are a lot less noticeable, especially if you use the Prong Collar Cover, which K9 Pro also has on their website.
Jagger immediately understood what was required of him when on leash and has stopped pulling, walks beautifully on a loose leash and I never have to use correction. I've only used the Prong Collar a couple of times on Jagger and he has immediately adopted the same behaviour in any type of collar. Busta, however, is much more stubborn and wilful and he sometimes reverts to his old behaviour in a standard collar.
Having been fervently against Prong Collars, a point of view borne of ignorance about how they actually work and bad (read uninformed, ignorant and incorrect) public opinion, I wouldn't use any other collar.
Both dogs respect their collars, tow the line and behave nicely as soon as we put them on.
Used correctly, I highly recommend it as a tool to be used for keeping you safe, your dog safe and other people's dogs safe.
I never thought Id use one , though knew nothing about them , thought they where for last resort problem dogs , staff at k9pro ,Bec said it would take training to new level . It has only been a week and Im stoked.. Get past the look and be gentle, its awesome.
Changed my dog from a head collar to the prong collar on advice from out trainer & what a huge difference it has made.
Walking at heel better & not as reactive to other dogs.
She seems happier.
