Metal dog collars are efficient dog training tools. Many professional dog trainers and handlers achieve great results by using them in their practice. Pinch and choke collars are safe and efficient when used correctly. Please, consult an experienced dog trainer or behaviorist to choose the right one for your dog and use it in a proper way. We hope this information will help you. Choose a metal dog collar with a wire gauge up to the breed and size of your dog.
