The Silent Slip Collar (SSC) is a rendition of the classic metal "choke chain" used in canine training. This collar is constructed from 6mm paracord and high quality metal rings. Being made of paracord adds a few benefits over the classic metal version. It is a more tactically sound collar in that it is virtually silent. Lacking the holes of classic metal choke chain, this collar will protect your canine's fur. The collar is light weight which helps keep the collar just below the jaw line, the optimal location for a choke/slip collar.
The collars are of the highest quality. One can see that pride is behind each piece. I have one complaint and that is that I feel the cordage used is a bit too small of a diameter (18" collar with 1/4"or 3/16" cordage). I feel that this really hits the esophagus harder since there is a smaller area. Wheezing starts almost immediately as opposed to having a little bit of warning for the pup.
Thank you for your review I absolutely take my time with each piece. I use 1/4' Paracord to build all of the collars and slip leads. You might possibly look into a DDC instead of the slip collar. A DDC would allow for a tighter and higher fit which would keep the cordage above your pup's trachea causing a gagging effect instead of a wheezing effect. - Please contact me directly and we will work something out.
Please keep in mind that these collars are built to be smooth, immediate (timely), and quiet with the idea that the pup can not brace itself. This allows for a much greater reaction with far less force from the owner. These collars are also meant to be a gradual increase of pressure and not a 'snapping' effect collar like a prong collar. Most of the time simply holding your ground will cause the pup to activate and then deactivate the collar. The pressure should come on immediately and gradually increase. As the pup ceases the behavior the pressure should gradually decrease and then turn off.
Always well constructed. Only collar my dogs wear at home. Gentle correction collar that I don’t worry about breaking
First, regarding customer service, I received immediate responses to questions which ensured I ordered the correct size of collars. Order arrived quickly and the collars are very high quality. Far superior to other slip collars I’ve tried, will be ordering other products in future.
I personally utilized damn near every piece of training equipment in the dog training industry over the last 17 year. These silent slip collars are hands down my go to. Very universal and can be utilized on pretty much and dog at any age. When properly fit even the most stubborn dogs will quit pulling like a freight train in seconds. When used properly, you can fix a multitude of problems such as barking, lunging, pulling, and backing out of collar. Aside from problems, it creates a clear picture when educating dogs on certain tasks such as sitting, heeling, going from down back ti a sit, place, etc.
This collar has made my job as a trainer much easier and gives me a way to communicate with each dog in a much clearer fashion. They damn near train the dog for you, and that’s no bullshit!
