What is the purpose of a prong collar?

A prong collar is an effective training tool to communicate on leash. The collar's design is made so pressure ie evenly distributed around the neck, rather than targeting one specific area. A prong collar is meant for quick short corrections in order to regain a dog's attention. We only recommend high quality prong collars (Herm Sprenger) as their design is the most reliable in safely regaining a dog's attention as well as keeping the integrity of the product.
