How to size
- Choose the wire gauge according to your dog’s weight. (See below)
- Size your dog’s neck and add 2 inches. (Example: Dog’s neck = 10” + 2”. Your dog’s prong collar size is at least 12”) Note: Collars should sit higher up on the neck, so measure here when determining collar size.
- If collar length needs to be adjusted, add or remove links accordingly.
Wire Gauge According to Weight:
2.25 mm – up to 66 lbs
3.2 mm – up to 88 lbs
4.0 mm – up to 154 lbs
How to Correctly Measure Your Dog’s Neck:
To select the most accurate size collar for your dog, measure the center of their neck with a cloth tape measure, a few inches down from their head. The collar should sit high up on your dog's neck, just behind their ears. Pull the cloth tape measure snug, but not tight. The fit should be snug, so the prong links can't shift to the front of your dog's neck where they might pinch your dog's trachea. Make sure there's enough room for about two fingers between the collar and your pet's neck for comfort. If the dog happens to be in between sizes it's then recommended to select the bigger size. NOTE: The collar should not be able to slip over your dog’s head.

Great looking collar, love the black stainless. fast shipping and got here in time for my boy’s training.
I went from dreading my daily walks (neighborhood and park) with my 5 1/2 month old Aussie due to his reactiveness (lunging, growling, barking, pulling, etc.) to enjoying them. After I summoned the courage to put on the prong collar despite his protests and all of the negative opinions by multiple trainers, within 30 minutes he became a joy to walk, staying by my side. Today was the 2nd day I used it and 3 other dogs barked and lunged at him on our walks. He became a little edgy but stayed with me each time and never growled, barked, or got on his hind legs as he has done in the past when we met other people, children and dogs on our walks. Although he is not yet perfect, the pain and strain on my back and shoulder is now in my rear view mirror. A million thanks!
Great lead for training our pup! He has 33’ of freedom now while also training and keeping him controlled. He loves the additional running room!
