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.

Love herm sprenger training collars
I ordered for all three of my dogs! Amazing training collar! Easy to adjust to the right size for your dogs neck so you get effective communication. These are the real herm sprenger collars from Germany. I ordered the medium weight 20inch for all three of my dogs and they are perfect for each one of my dogs even being different sizes. I have a Dutch Shepherd who is 95 pounds, a lab mix who is 60 pounds and a 8 month old german Shepherd 45 pounds. I can walk all 3 of my dogs by myself and it’s a very enjoyable walk for all of us because they understand the communication of the collar pressure and release. Happy customer

Neat collar that really does work!!
I am sure it is excellent, but it is too strong for me, with arthritis in my hands, to try to spring it open or closed,,,,,sooooooo. I have ordered the easy latch type of the same because I read the reviews on it. A lady with arthritis said she could easily use this one. Hope it is true.I will give the first one to my son for his large dog. My dog trainer says these are the very best collar, and after he showed me how to use it, I believe him.I do recommend this collar and only this brand, there is nothing sharp to hurt my dog. The ones I looked at at the pet stores are very sharp.

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.

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!

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.

It's the best training collar by far! Well made, gentle, yet effective. Makes walking any dog without pulling a breeze.

Is the 14 inch lightweight collar 1.75 mm?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 14 inch collar is 2.25mm.
My dog's neck measures 8" she is a small 8 pound mini schnauzer. Which size Herm Sprenger martingale prong collar should I get?
Sophie Rose on Jul 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: To measure for the collar size , you are supposed to measure the circumference of dog's neck and add 2". These come in size 14" and up, which may be too large for your dog.
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.
Which prong collar is the 2.25mm?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Ive listed the sizes and weights below

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.
Two questions: I have a 40 lb. chow-what size should I get? And I am concerned that she will break loose (which has happened with a different prong collar) - what is the device called to connect the prong collar to the regular collar or leash?
Brianna L on May 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would go with the 18" it's a nice weight, I use that size on my German Shepherds, unless you need more of a correction then go with the 14" and purchase extra links to make it fit. It should fit so that when you pull on the leash it looks like the picture, you don't want those 2 pieces that the chain runs thru to hit the center ring, there should be a little chain showing during correction. Rule of thumb, less prongs=less correction, hope that makes sense. Herm Sprenger is (maybe the first prong collar?) the best made prong collar, never had a prong pop off EVER! It's worth a little extra, I have one that is well over 25 yrs. old and still in great shape.
Not sure what device that is, the leash connects to the swivel ring on the prong collar. I guess you could use a tab line to connect the two...but I've never used or needed one.
can you get extra links as i have a german shepherd pup 6 mths old so she is going to grow ?
Thomas W on Oct 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes! They are easy to put on. You can buy them at any time, but it's nice to have them when you need them!

Unrelated to the question, here is a bit of advice I got, and I share with you: When you use a prong collar, even a Sprenger, also keep a buckle collar on your dog and a connector cord between the two in case your prong collar should come undone. I used a piece of parachute cord, which I tied to the prong collar, and a scissor snap at the other end. When I use it, I simply snap the cord to my buckle collar.
Hi, i have a very excitable, "Kangaroo hopping" pulling 1 1/2 Siberian Husky, I don't want to hurt him at all and Huskies are known to be "Drama Kings" so i don't want to be walking him and him yelping and acting like he's being hurt, do you think this would work for him? Thank you, Theresa H.
THERESA H on Mar 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. You shouldn't leave the house without it on. A few good quick, hard yanks (and releases) should begin to get the message across for him to walk properly. (i.e. there shouldn't be constant tugging, you want slack in the leash.) If it doesn't work immediately try again, harder. If you get a yelp, then you know you have his attention. Believe me, the dog is much tougher than you realize. Without a pinch collar, you have no leverage. I have been pulled down by big, strong dogs so I know the need to be in control and have stable footing. There should be no drama. You should ignore it if there is. You're in charge and you need to remember that. Just keep trying at each walk opportunity. Eventually you'll get the desired result if you don't give in. People think it's "cute" when they don't bother to train little dogs and they misbehave. Still they are easier to deal with. A big dog is an entirely different story.
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.
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.
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. :)

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.
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.
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.

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

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.

Collar should fit snugly just below the dog’s ears. Measure the circumference of dog's neck and add two inches.
I need one for a shihtzu. What MM are these ?
Kenzie E on Feb 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You will need the smallest, lightweight and most likely will have to remove some links for a perfect fit.
Search online for instructions to fit and use the collar properly.
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.
what size collar for a 65 lb dog?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 20 inch collar I bought was too large for my young 55 lb. German Shepherd female. Not a problem, as I just removed one of the links and saved if she grows. I would go with the same size, and if it is too small you can buy another link to add. The collar is designed so it should stay high up by the dog's ears but not tight. It will not slip over the head, you undo a link to put it on. Btw, it works very well right away, but make sure you read how to use it properly.
how long are the prongs?
Barbara H on Aug 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are. 1 1/2 in. Same as 18 but a bit thicker. If you aren't familiar with Herm Sprengers, I consider them to be the best. Smooth steel, sturdy. Hope this helps.

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!
