Product Summary:

Herm Sprenger Prong Dog Collar

The Herm Sprenger prong collar is one of the most recognizable and popular names in obedience training tools. A safe and effective alternative to choker collars, the prong collar puts even pressure around the neck, about every half inch, pinching the skin in a band. This collar does not apply direct pressure to the trachea so you can train your dog with little or no tugging, jerking, or pulling. Made of high-quality German steel and adjustable size, just add or remove the chrome plated links individually.


  • Interlocking links, each link equipped with two blunt prongs
  • Slightly beveled, polished prong tips
  • Easy to increase or decrease size
  • Made in Germany
14"L x ¾"W (2.25mm)
18"L x 1"W (3mm)
20"L x 1"W (3.25mm)
22"L x 1¼"W (3.8mm)

Sizing Instructions:
Collar should fit snugly just below the dog’s ears. Measure the circumference of dog's neck and add two inches.

Denise W on Apr 28, 2018
Because I need it! Can't find locally. Cheaper this way. Best one on the market. The comment section has people that don't know how to use these collars. There are tons of you tube videos that show how to size them, put them on properly and use them properly. Putting one on your dog doesn't mean it will obey, you have to train them, over and over and over.

best pronged collars available
Christopher A on Apr 4, 2018
Sprenger are the best prong collars currently available, but I wish someone would come up with a better design. The quick-snap types often fail to stay together. This type is more secure, but hard to put on and take off. Overall, there is an opportunity here for someone who can create a better mouse trap!

Jose V on Dec 4, 2017
This is recommended by the dog training academy I attended, as well as by the training company I work for...it's pretty much the best prong collar out there, though the heavy-weight ones are hard to work if you don't have strong hands.
Gavin E on Dec 1, 2017
I use these collars on 95% of the dogs i train. I prefer this size collar for most dogs. 90 lbs and up i use 3 mm HS prong collars; everyone else gets the 2.25 mm collar.
Tad S on Nov 15, 2017
It's the best training collar by far! Well made, gentle, yet effective. Makes walking any dog without pulling a breeze.

Do you sell a 22” prong collar?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we do offer a 22" Prong Collar!
is it adjustable?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. You can make it smaller by removing individual links and larger by adding links. If you need extra links, they can be purchased separately.
Is this with a quick release?
A shopper on Feb 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This photo is NOT a quick release collar, but they do make one that is. As a certified trainer, I never purchased any that were heavier than a medium, and added extra links, if necessary for proper fit. Herm Sprenger is an excellent brand, and the only one I would use. Be sure to keep the leash slack, and never tight, as when tight the dog is constantly being very uncomfortable. If they pull with it, give a tug immediately...then relax it again. They soon learn to stay by your left side with a slack leash! I wish you the best of luck!
Hi. Which size should i buy for my lab aged 11/2 yrs? The 14" or 18"?
Kelvin A on Dec 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depends on the dog’s neck size and temperament ...you will always be able to get a better fit with a 2.25mm (lightweight) prong collar with extra links added, if necessary.
I have a 16 months Belgian shepherd tervuren (similar to mallinois but long fur) i measured his neck and it gave me 37.5 cm which is about 14 to 15 inch; i am not sure if such measurement is common for belgian shepherd; if i add a couple of inch on top of that it will be between 16-17 inch; which one do you recommend? should i get the 18 inch and take off parts or go for 14 and add parts, he is a hyper dog doesn't rest and bolting with so much force, i need to get him used to be calm so we can walk him and correct his hyper jumpy childish personality.
Load N on Dec 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: According to your posting, you have the 22-inch Xheavyweight selected and that is too much for that dog. You should be able to fit the Med with no issues. Most people make the mistake of fitting these collars too loose. They should fit very snug against the dog's neck Should NOT slip around. You should be able to barely get two fingers under it while on the dog. Too loose and it will not work correctly. With long hair dogs I would recommend the same collar but with the quick release.
My dog has 21" neck. What length collar do I need?
Jeffhs66 on Jun 23, 2018
You would have to add 2 inches. Which makes it equal to '24'
I need great dane size?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am sorry , but this item is measured by dimensions and not by weight or breed. Please measure your pet and use the sizing chart to determine which size item your pet needs. I have listed it below.

Sizing Instructions:
Collar should fit snugly just below the dog’s ears. Measure the circumference of dog's neck and add two inches.
Does this have quick release?

I have German Shepard puppy 4 mon old what size prolong collard should I get?
Ryker on Aug 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there,

You would need to measure your pup and follow the below sizing information:

14"L x ¾"W (2.25mm)
18"L x 1"W (3mm)
20"L x 1"W (3.25mm)
22"L x 1¼"W (3.8mm)
Sizing Instructions:
Collar should fit snugly just below the dog’s ears. Measure the circumference of dog's neck and add two inches.

I do highly recommend consulting with a Professional prior to using this type of training tool for the first time. As with any other tool, if not used properly there is the potential for injury.

Good luck!
Does this collar discolor my dogs fur?
Lynda on Jul 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The metal can tarnish lighter colored fur, such as yellow labs have. The tarnish washes off with a bath, though - I have not seen any permanent discoloration and I have worked with these collars for years with a variety of breeds.
For a labrador which one?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2017
I am a hobby breader and have been using the prong collars since 1995. The collar works because it feels like mom's mouth and puppies do not struggle when mom picks them up. The Chain Part goes click click when the dog pulls, and is the signal that they should slow down with the human. The Circle in the middle is the "stop" so the prong collar does not get any tighter. Those are the basics on how the collar works and is build. The Sprenger Collars have rounded points, better for skin scratch, and are built better.

I think you may have some confusion yet..... you did not mention the dogs neck size. I would think a lab would be in the 20-24" range. The other consideration is the smaller sizes of say 18 & 20" length have different "point counts" and the length of link. That is why extra links are also sold. Every dog will or should be hand fitted with the link Qty using the info above. I could also recommend you buy two collars and use the extra collar's LINKs to custom fit the collar that will be used. Gives you all the extra parts and even an extra collar if need. Buy 3 collars if you have two dogs. I would use the 18" collar and the smaller links for a lab...... length will need to be fitted for your pup and will change as the pup matures, then get smaller again as the dog gets to be a senior

YOU WILL NEED EXTRA LINKs or an extra collar.......... Never leave this collar on the dog if you are not there. they can get caught and hurt the dog...... that included the car and being tied outside.... never if not attended. HOPE THAT HELPS
Can I order a 20" and a 22 inch prong collar? Or can I order two 22" collars and remove some prongs
Sherri V on May 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The links are able to be removed or added for easy adjustability of the collar.
Is this herm sprenger the made in germany brand or a knock off?
tatiaan p on Apr 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi there,

Can you remove links from the collar?
A shopper on Apr 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello, Yes, you can remove and add links as needed to properly fit the collar. In case you are new to this type of collar, you also do need to open it at one of the links to put it on, around your dogs neck. It should fit snuggly, up towards the top of the neck. You do not want the collar too loose, the proper fit is snug.
My dogs have 15.5 inch necks, am I better off getting the 14 inch and adding prongs or the 18 inch and taking prongs off. They are lab/boxer mixes?
cindy m on Mar 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Cindy, I have a male boxer and I initially bought the 18" Mediumweight collar, but it just seemed a little heavy for the boxer style of neck. The links are 3mm and the collar just didn't stay up high where it needed to because with the larger lengths I couldn't get the perfect fit. So I ended up getting the 14" 2.25mm and added lengths. This was perfect! The action is so much better with the smaller links. Night and day difference. The collar is much lighter and I think for a lab/boxer mix you will be much happier with how it looks and functions on your dog. The larger collar made it look like I was trying too hard to make him look tough:) I have also tried other prongs but Herm Sprengers are the best! Their action is incredible. Just make sure to have a backup collar attached with a carabiner because there is always a chance with all prongs that they could come apart at the worst time. I have never had it happen, but there is the possibility. I hope this helps.

Terri on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These are training collars;not to worn all the time and not if the dogs are unsupervised.

How do you put it on when the head is larger than the neck?
Danielle S on Jan 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is not designed to slide over the head. if you slide it over the head, it will be to loose. You have to take it apart at the prongs. put your thumb on the circle design and push it down while pulling up the other prong to separate them. It will be hard because they are designed to be snug with a little spring to it. so you will have to squeeze the prongs together as you pull it apart as well as putting it back together, I am sure there a youtube video showing this out there somewhere. The pinch collar is suppose to be snug around the dogs neck and not loose at all.
My dog's neck measures 10". Can I use the 14" if I remove prongs?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That should work. Each link adds or subtracts approximately 1 inch to the length of the collar. By removing 4 links, that should get the 10 inch size you are looking for. Hope that helps.

Does this collar have a center plate?
Gina W on Sep 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does. Herm Sprenger changed their design several years ago. Every collar I've ordered from any website has the center plate.
I have a 9 month old saint barnard he is 82 lbs. He pulls and barks at dogs ,I want to teach him with your prong collars. Do you think it will work and what size should I get? And do I always have to use the prong collars for the rest of his life.
A shopper on Jul 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I recommend the medium weight only, for all breeds and sizes. When I train large breeds, such as saint bernards, I just add a lot more links to them. You can buy additional links or even a second collar and use all the links on one. A single collar may be good enough for now, but you'll have to get additional links later for sure. The reason is because the movement on the medium is so much better. The heavyweight is HEAVY. You don't get a good "pop" when correcting because the chain is so thick and clunky, and it's difficult to open because the links are so thick and hard to flex. In my experience (13 years training), a medium works best, even for dogs over 200 pounds.

A prong collar is usually at least up until maturity, which ranges from 18-36 months. You'll know you don't need it anymore when you see that you're not using it anymore! Though many dogs do best with one in public spaces forever. I always use one on my maltese mix when we leave the house (a lightweight) - he's sweet and a good boy, but hasn't the best impulse control. If aiming for off-leash or off-prong, it's best to take it slow. A prong collar is used to enforce your authority, so pair it with body language, eye contact, and your tone of voice, including a word, such as "no." And above all, be consistent. If something is wrong, it's wrong every time, and you need to address it every time. If you are wishy-washy with enforcement your dog will learn that he can keep testing his limits with you and you will always have to keep resorting to a prong collar. I recommend the use of a prong collar with a trainer, but it is of course possible to do it on your own. :)
Do you sell any of these collars with rubber tips?
A shopper on May 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No , I could not locate a collar like this with rubber tips in our inventory.
Doberman prong collar size?
A shopper on May 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As a professional I always use the lightweight size for short coated dogs, no matter what size. Please be sure to seek professional help with fitting the collar and its proper use. Do NOT let the dog hit the end of the leash, do not yam, pop, or pull the leash without first teaching the dog. Good luck.
