About this product

When nothing else works. Your last resort is a chain collar that will help cope with dog’s misbehavior and poor leash etiquette.  

This item consists of a round chain with 2.5 mm wire gauge and two O-rings. The chain runs well through the ring thanks to the short links. So, you can quickly tighten the collar and immediately release it to get sharp correction. In such a way, your dog will quickly learn which behavior is appropriate. Because of short links, this chain collar is suitable for dogs with short hair.

NOTE!

Short link chain collars can cause hair breakage at long and very fine fur. If your dog has long hair, consider long link chain collars.

This collar is made of black stainless steel. Each collar made of this material has a high-gloss surface. But it is not all. Black stainless steel is the same composition of iron, chromium, silicon, nickel and carbon that makes up traditional stainless steel products. But it has a protective coating of polymer that creates a black matte finish. Black stainless steel is just as durable as classic stainless steel, but features a richer, deeper colored finish.

NOTE!

This black stainless steel collar is suitable for dogs with dark fur and those canines who are not reactive to nickel. The collars made of black stainless steel are not recommended for dogs with light coat, as because of normal abrasion processes they may color fur.

If your dog has light fur we advise to order a nickel free curogan collar or stainless steel collar.

This chain collar comes in several sizes and will do for dogs with weight up to 88 lbs (40 kg). Please measure the length of your dog's neck circumference and add from 2 to 3 inches to determine an appropriate collar length. Measurements are made from the end of one ring to end of another ring. See the chart to find the size your dog needs.

Q&A

GENERAL

How do I identify a Sprenger collar?

Each of Sprenger collars is stamped with a brand name HS-Germany (HS-GERMAN INOX / HS-CUROGAN) on the rings, swivels and some additional places on certain products. This marking functions as a verification of brand recognition for each Sprenger product.

Moreover, all stainless steel pinch collars are labelled with an additional tag that is marked with a red dot. It also helps to differentiate a stainless steel collar from a chromed steel one at the first glance.

Q: What is a chain collar?

A chain collar (also called choke chain, control collar) generally consists of a chain and two rings attached to both ends.  It forms a loop that slips through itself to form a collar at one end.

Q: When should I NOT use a chain collar?

No matter how you treat this tool, the chain collar is NOT suitable for:

  • dogs under 6 months,
  • short-nosed or thin-necked breeds,
  • dogs left unattended.
Q: What are the differences between a choke chain and a pinch collar?

Both prong and choke chain collars are generally made of metal chain material which tightens around a dog’s neck when the handler pulls or jerks back on the leash.

The choke chain is designed to control by tightening around your dogs neck. There is no way to control how much a choke chain can tighten, so it is possible to choke or strangle your dog with this kind of collar. It is also easy to cause injuries to the trachea, esophagus, the blood vessels around the eyes, neck sprains, nerve damage, fainting, and temporary paralysis.

Prong collars function similarly to choke collars, except they contain metal spikes on the inside that dig into and ‘pinch’ a dog’s neck if he pulls on the leash. However, the martingale controls how much tightening the collar can do, which reduces the chance for accidental injuries.

How to use

Q: How should I use a chain collar not to harm my dog?

A chain collar is not meant to choke your dog. If it does, you are using it incorrectly.

When you use it properly, the collar sits high on your dog’s neck, just below the jaw. Thanks to this position, you draw your dog’s attention to you when applying only slight pressure. One quick jerk is enough to make the collar tighten just for a second and then return into a loose state when you release it.

Q: How do I measure the neck size of my dog?

How to measure your dog for the chain collar:

  1. Measure 1) the largest part of your dog's head, and 2) the middle of his/her neck.
  2. Determine the size of the collar you need using your dog’s head measurements if your dog's head is larger than his/her neck.
  3. Determine the size of the collar you need using your dog’s neck measurements if his/her neck is larger than the head.
  4. Now add 2" to to the above measurements (head or neck) for larger dogs and 1" to 1.5" for smaller dogs. This is the size collar you will need.
Q: How do I put a chain collar on my dog?

To put a chain collar on your dog, follow  these simple steps:

  1. Hold one of the chain’s end rings and push the chain through the ring. You have now formed the straight chain into a loop circle with both end rings touching.
  2. Put the collar in front of the dog so it looks like a horizontal 'P.' Place the resulting loop around your dog’s head.
  3. Attach a leash to the ring that does not have the collar sliding through it.

When placed on your dog in this manner, pulling on the leash will cause the collar to tighten. When you relax the leash, the collar loosens.

If placed on your dog incorrectly, the links of the collar go from the leash through the other ring and then UNDER the dog's neck. If placed on your dog incorrectly, the collar will often not automatically loosen when you pull on the leash.

Be sure that you put the chain collar on your dog in the appropriate orientation. If you walk with the dog on your right, leash-end of the chain should hang from the left side of your dog’s neck. If your dog walks on your left, leash-end of the chain should hang from the right side of your dog’s neck.

WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE

Q: Which collar will be well-suited for my dog?

Please, choose the collar according to the following factors:

  • dog’s neck size
  • dog’s weight
  • dog’s fur color
  • allergy to nickel.

You will find more information about each product on the product pages. If you are still not sure which collar to choose for your dog, ask our support manager or local trainer.

Q: Why does the collar stain my dog’s fur?

There are many reasons of the discoloration of your dog’s fur. One of the reasons is the dog’s allergy to nickel. As a solution, Sprenger offers the nickel free materials curogan and solid brass to provide these dogs with a comfortable alternative. However, the collar may stain dog’s fur without any apparent reason.

Q: Can collars made of curogan cause fur discoloration?

We are unfortunately not in the position to assure you that curogan collars will not cause fur discoloration. Curogan is 100% nickel-free and is less likely to stain fur than any other material. However, there are cases when dog’s fur got stained because of the curogan prong collar.

Q: Which collar is less likely to rust?

A stainless steel collar is less likely to rust. And here is why. Chromium and nickel are present throughout stainless steel, not just on the surface (compare - steel with chrome coating that can be easily damaged and result in rusting). Because of this, the microscopic layer will form itself anew, even when the steel is cut or scratched.
