Description

Leerburg's micro prong collars are designed to be used with small breed dogs. Weighing just under 1.5 oz., the collar will fit up to a 9 inch neck without any extra links added, with each link measuring approximately ¾” long and ½” wide. The Micro Prong will fit dogs as small as 5 lbs. Micro Prong Collars are made in the USA with an imported chain and they are only available in Stainless Steel.

While these collars are meant to be used with small breed dogs they also serve a dual purpose. Many people prefer the micro prongs for their large breed dogs because the distance between prongs is shorter. This creates a more spread out less deep pinching effect. If you are using the micro prong on a larger dog, or your small dog with a large neck, extra links are available. Each individual link on the collar is 3/4 inches in length and just under 1/2 inches wide.

The Micro prong collar has a standard chain with 2 O rings. When one ring is attached to the leash the collar is “active”. When both rings are attached to the leash the collar will not tighten and there for not function as a pinch collar.

Prong collars do not apply pressure to the dogs trachea, making them a safe alternative to a slip collar, and much safer than allowing your dog to pull into a flat collar which can cause permanent damage to the dogs wind pipe. Instead a prong collar tightens, creating a pinching sensation that is instantly released once the dog “yields to the leash” or stops pulling.

Leerburg recommends using a backup collar any time you are walking your dog with a prong collar. For more information on back up collars and why we recommend them check out some of our free streaming videos on the proper use of a prong collar as well as the prong collar leash.

It is recommended to NOT use these collars with a retractable (flexi) lead.

My Jack Russell mix is a puller on walks. That little body is pure muscle and he pulls me all over the place. From the first minute with the micro prong on him, he's been a perfect gentleman on the leash. My walks with him are pleasant now, not a chore that I hated to do. Thank you!!!

This micro prong collar fits snug on our puppy during training. It was recommended by our professional dog trainer. Works great!

My mini poodle puppy was a holy terror. After three sessions of puppy obedience, she still failed her Canine Good Citizen test! Problem was "Lacks impulse control". I couldn't find chain slip collars or flat collars small enough. I tried various "humane" halters and harnesses, which she destroyed with ease. I have trained dogs in the past using chain collars. All were able to walk to a trial post off leash by the time they were 9 - 10 months. I found the Leerburg web site and the micro prong collar! That collar completely changed little Flicka's personality. The minute I put it on (following the method in the web's video) she trotted sweetly beside me down the sidewalk. She showed me that she knew the obedience commands all along, just needed a little very gentle reminder from time to time.
My next project is to wean her from the prong collar to a flat collar, so she can participate in AKA events. So far this is not working. Do you have any videos that might help. Flicka is now two years old and immune to any restrictions other than her micro prong collar. (Very tough throat muscles when wearing flat collars!)
The 4 rating is only because it requires hand strength to squeeze the links to put on or take off. A job for some engineer to tackle - to design a tool for squeezing the link.
