This is the Ultra Plus version as it is the highest quality and it is by far the most effective training collar
The prong training collar can be an extremely helpful training tool used correctly, we recommend that you seek professional advice on using one of these collars if you have not trained with one before.
The Herm Sprenger Company has been a leader in the dog training market with their high-quality training products for many years. Herm Sprenger uses only the best materials and prides itself on their high standards. K9 Pro is proud to carry a wide variety of Herm Sprenger collars.
The unique design in prong collars do not apply pressure to the dog’s trachea, making them a safe alternative to a slip collar, and much safer than allowing your dog to pull into a flat collar which can cause permanent damage to the dogs wind pipe. Instead a prong collar tightens, creating a pressure sensation that is instantly released once the dog “yields to the leash” or stops pulling.
How to choose the right size prong collar for your dog!
When choosing prong collars, we look at three things:
- The breed of dog
- The weight of your dog to choose the collar type - these first two factors determine the collar size (small medium or large prong collar)
- The neck circumference to determine if you need to add of remove links.
Please note for large collars – these are for GIANT BREEDS only!
These are suitable for dogs that are 60 plus kilos and have very thick necks, for breeds similar to German Shepherds and Rottweilers a Medium collar is almost always sufficient - you may just need extra links if the 59cm length is too short.
The function of the collar in in the link size and a large link in prongs is too much for most dogs.

Curogan is a copper-tin-alloy with a high copper portion and some additives which make the material strong - but without any nickel. Therefore, these chains avoid a discoloration of fair-haired dogs. Some dogs (less than 10%) do react on Curogan with a discoloration. Another advantage of Curogan is the fact that it is absolutely free of nickel. Often nickel can be responsible for allergic reactions of sensitive dogs and causes of some skin rashes. Herm Sprenger advises that the Curogan will NOT rust because it is a copper/tin alloy and does not contain any iron, and only iron can rust. Curogan will darken and tarnish when exposed to the outdoor environment.
Prong collars should NOT be used with a retractable (flexi) lead.
The life expectancy of this collar is endless!
Note: We recommend always using a back up collar with any prong collar for safety reasons. While these collars will not break, there is always the chance of the collar being fitted incorrectly.

My female Dobermann is nearing her fourth birthday and I still have to lead walk her with a prong collar. Any other collar is useless. If I use a slip (choke) collar she chokes herself out with vigorous pulling. A flat military collar I have is great because of the handle but useless for lead walking as it spreads the ‘load’ on her neck and she just pulls harder. I use an e-collar for off-lead control but when it comes to close-lead or loose-lead walking NOTHING comes near a Herm Sprenger Prong Collar.
These collars get bad reviews and comments from people who no very little about dogs and dog handling . They just see the prongs and think that it is a cruel device.
If you buy and use a prong collar expect some criticism from naive people. Ignore them and just go with all the good advice available from expert dog handlers.
Be aware that there a fake prong collars on the market (Internet). Only buy a genuine Herm Sprenger collar: German quality.
Fantastic quality excellent for training gives clear communication to dog. Highly recommend
Hesitant, but had good results with a trainer. Worked on leash reactivity to other dogs and pulling with slip, martingale and harness with no progress. Recommended this size by trainer. Removed 4 links. Progress in last several local walks definitely feels forward. She loves to wear it, loves to impress me. Just loses herself when other dogs come close. I’m excited at what we can achieve once she learns most dogs are ok and I will handle the rest!
Excellent quality and a great tool.
