Herm Sprenger Collars
Prong collars are invaluable tools for training your dog. They serve to eliminate pulling, lunging, and bad behavior quickly and safely. They are the single most common tool among my training clients for their effectiveness and ease of use. However, finding a quality prong collar is often harder than it needs to be. In your local pet shop you’re likely to only find the classic model. Store-brand generics are typically made of weak alloys, which bend and break over time. Worse, the prong tips may be sharp, which is not safe and not part of the original design. Online, finding authentic Herm Sprenger collars is difficult at best. You’ll often get knockoff products or pay premium prices. Here, you’ll pay what my clients pay, plus shipping. And you’ll get an authentic Herm Sprenger every time.
When it comes to electric collars, there are numerous brands and no-name generics available on the market today. Most of them are complete junk, manufactured abroad for less than $2 apiece. I exclusively use Educator brand collars, manufactured in the USA by E-Collar Technologies. These collars are durable and come with a wealth of features for different needs. Most importantly, they are made to function flawlessly every time. Below are the two most popular products with my local clients, the Mini Educator and Barkless Pro.
