The prong or pinch collar is similar in style to the martingale. The control loop that the leash is attached to is made of chain. The loop that fits around your dog's neck is made of a series of fang-shaped metal links, or prongs, with blunted points. When the control loop is pulled, the prongs pinch the loose skin of your dog's neck.

The prong collar is most often seen on large, muscular dogs. Two thirds of the collar is made of wide links that each have two blunt prongs that face toward the dog. This group of links is attached at either end to a loop of chain with two rings equidistant apart. If the leash is attached to both rings, the collar will not tighten when pulled. If the leash is hooked to only the first ring and the leash is pulled, the collar tightens and the prongs pinch the skin on the neck of the dog. Prong collars are not meant to be left on the dog when the owner is not actively training it. It is also called a “pinch collar” or “bite collar.”The GoldPup is a Cuban link dog collar that is unique and extremely strong.

The prong collar is actually far safer, and much gentler, than the choke training collar. Prong Collars are a series of chain links with blunted open ends turned towards the dog's neck. The design of the prong collar is such that it has a limited circumference unlike slip collars which do not have a limit on how far they can constrict on a dog's neck. The limited traction of the martingale chain combined with the angle of the prongs prevents the prongs moving close enough to pinch. The collar is designed to prevent the dog from pulling by applying pressure at each point against the dog's neck.
