This collar is constructed of nylon cord with stainless steel hardware. Measure the dog's neck just under the jaw and right behind the ears. Use a string or cloth tape measure. The string should be VERY SNUG. It should be as tight a measurement as you can get it. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you have the tightest possible measurement located at the top of the neck directly below the jawline. If this collar is being used as a corrective collar then order it 1-2 sizes smaller. The hardware on the collar adds 2 inches. If you are using this as a back up collar then order the size you measured. This is not intended to give a painful correction.
Dominant dog collars are specifically designed for use on handler aggressive or dog aggressive dogs. These collars are excellent for lowering the drive and taking the fight out of a dog. DO NOT jerk this collar to deliver a correction. The proper way to use the collar is to SLOWLY lift straight up on the collar, until the dog ceases the behavior and settles. The dominant dog collars come in 1 inch increments. Use a string or cloth tape to measure around the dogs neck. Measure just under the jaw and around the head right behind the ears. The string or cloth tape must be tight to get a proper measurement. There should be no space between the dogs neck and the tape measure or string. Order a collar that is the same length as that measurement. If the measurement falls between two sizes, then round down to the next smaller size. For example, if the measurement is 18 1/2 inches, order an 18 inch dominant dog collar.
This leash is made with 2 snaps so that a prong collar is attached to one snap and a back up collar is attached to second snap. There is a 6" tab attached to the snap end of the leash for the backup collar. When or if the prong collar fails and comes off the dog, the second collar is already attached without interfering with the prong collar corrections. The soft grip leashes are made by Amish leather craftsmen from a synthetic imitation leather material. It has the same durability as leather, but is much stronger. This leash is 6' long and 3/4" wide.
