Triple Crown Collar

Kerry writes:

“I saw this collar at my local holistic pet food store. I was intrigued because it had a German Shepherd on the package, and the package said the plastic links were made of high-strength polymer. The store said I could return it if it didn’t work, so I decided to try it.

You are not supposed to slide the collar over the dog’s head, you are supposed to undo a link to put the collar on and take it off. That takes some practice, so practice doing this before you actually put the collar on your dog. It is trickier to undo a link, so make sure you can do this fairly easily. When removing the collar, it's easiest to unlink the end piece that says "Triple Crown"

The packaging refers to a website which has a lot of information about this product, including a free training video you can view online, information about properly fitting the collar, and product reviews.

Once you get the hang of fastening and unfastening the links, the collar is really great. It’s a nice alternative to metal collars. One major advantage over the metal prong collar is that the polymer links won’t bend and become worn and fatigued like the metal prongs. My Husky’s last prong collar lasted about a year before it just fell off of him. Thank goodness, we were inside at the time.”

So have you continued to use this collar with your Husky? I have a husky mix and boy, can she pull.

I was thinking about a pinch but wanted to see what someone who had used a triple crown thought.

I've used head collars, choke chains, no pull harnesses and regular harnesses. She just pulls and pulls.

I just found this and (after having many discussions about these, chokers of any kin, pinch collars and such) I´d just like to encurage everyone who thinks about using any of these on a dog to really reflect about the reasons many countries have to ban these and make them illegal years ago.

The Triple Crown collar is specifically designed to be secure but humane for dogs that pull on the leash. The "prongs" are much smoother and shorter than the prongs on a metal prong collar. This collar does not pinch or choke - it evenly applies pressure around the neck, and because of the collar's design, it stays high up on the neck in the correct position. I do not like choke chains because they constantly slip down to the bottom of the neck, which is the strongest and least sensitive part of the neck. They also don't always loosen when the dogs stops pulling.

I've been using the Triple Crown collar for about 2 years, and it's fantastic. My dog loves it too, he has never expressed discomfort, and is always excited when I pick it up because he knows we are going for a walk, which he enjoys. He wouldn't enjoy walks if he were in pain or discomfort due to the collar.

Any tool can be used incorrectly, but that doesn't mean all tools should be banned.
