First & foremost do U have the know how on its application? Secondly. have you seen one? If the answer is no, best you forget what you are looking for, you might and will fractue the wind pipe of your pet and you will regret in having bought it. Go to SEA Park Pet Supplier in SEA Park P.J. you might find it there.

An ordinary SS choke chain is just as effective and less damaging that is if you use it correctly.






Opinion expressed may appear unorthodox & unconventional, sometimes even controversial but facts given are assured of their accuracy.

Prongs are one of the BEST training tools out there. Those who are against them & think they're cruel, obviously have not used one before. They look like torture devices but they're not. Prong collars are WAY safer than choke chains because when you jerk the dog with it, the pressure goes all around the dog's neck whereas the choke chain, the pressure goes only one side of the neck. If jerked too hard, it can snap the neck in half. Prong collars won't cause that damage. And you will get GREAT results using this tool. Trust me!

The fact is, using ANY training tools can be dangerous if used incorrectly. The head halter for example, what happens if the dog runs till the end of the leash? Can we say, broken neck??? I sometimes use the prong collar to train my soft Dalmatian(most of the time with a choke chain) & she does all her commands perfectly well.

I actually got mine at a dog carnival in MidValley few months back but it's not really good quality. You will have to order yours online. Check out Ebay, there are plenty on there but you have to make sure you get the right size for your dog. They come in small, medium, large & extra large.

I don't need one to train my little schnauzer right? they are just for big dogs that are harder to handle? cause they really look like torture instruments to me.

No, prong collars are not just for big dogs. I've seen plenty of big time obedience competitors use prong collars on Jack Russells, Miniature Poodles, Shelties, etc. It depends on YOUR knowledge & the temperament of the dog.

Hope I helped.
