What size prong collar should I get for my dog?
I normally recommend two sizes of prong collars (2.0mm small) and (3.0mm medium) the length can be adjusted to any size by adding addition links to the collar. (2.0mm) Is used as a stronger correction in any size dog. (3.0mm) is used as a mild correction in any size dog.
How do I choose a Herm Sprenger?
What you need to do is to measure your dog’s neck circumference and choose the size of a new collar based on that. Measure it tightly, there is no need to add a finger or two because all of our collars are adjustable.
The prongs are measured by their gauge, or thickness, not by their length. For instance, 3.0mm equals the gauge/thickness of the prong. One of the two ends that come in contact with the dog’s neck should be held up against a metric ruler.
