Hi, thanks for visiting! I'm a Certified Dog Trainer with the International Association of Canine Professionals and teach at My Dogs Mind in Hampton, NH. My dogs are Gaucho, a Belgian Malinois, and Zen, a Min-Pin rescue mix. My time is spent teaching private lessons and group classes, running this buckle business, and hiking with my dogs!

Since 2012, I've seen owners struggle with their prong collars and try many types of easy-on products that are ineffective.
In 2017, I started designing my own solution to prong collar problems. Owners and trainers needed something simple and easy to use, without unnecessary and flimsy plastic hardware. After a year of testing with my own dogs, I began offering the buckles to owners and trainers.
The 2.25mm buckles have holes specifically designed to fit the prong links of 2.25mm Herm Sprenger collars. The 3.0/3.2/4.0mm buckles come with Herm Sprenger prong links mechanically affixed. The buckles simply replace the middle dividing plate of the collars.
