Proper Sizing of the Sprenger Pinch Collar

    need advice please

    Trainer at my Vet's Office was not happy with Teddy's pinch collar. He said it was t fitted properly, which I remember our last Trainer telling us. He said he did t like that the prongs were not dull and said the collar may be hurting Teddy. He also said there were two different sized links and they were all stretched out, etc. so I went home and tried to buy a Sprenger Collar. I measured Teddy's neck and think it was 19 inches. The collars are 18 and 20 inches. Do I buy the 18 inch collar?

    20”. individual links can be detached by squeezing. collar should be fitted so that it rests at top of the dog’s neck/under jaw line with little slack, but not digging in either. Herm Sprenger brand collars are of highest quality. When to use/correct and proper use in training is a different topic, which a vet may know little to nothing about.
