Q. Which of the prong collars is the sturdiest?
Ms. Cindy,

Which of the prong collars is the sturdiest? I plan on purchasing a 2 clasp lead when I purchase the prong collar so that I will have a lead on a backup collar should the prong collar fail. I'm working with a 10 month old 170# English Mastiff that is still 100% puppy but also incredibly strong. Anyway, please let me know which prong collar you feel will handle the most stress.

Thanks,
Brad

A. I'd recommend the Herm Sprenger stainless steel, they are going to be the sturdiest.

I'd probably use a large and get additional links to fit his neck. The extra large links are really thick and not as "pointy" so sometimes dogs don't respond as well to them.

I hope this helps.
