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.Of all the behavioral modification tools at a modern dog owner’s disposal, perhaps none are more controversial and misunderstood that choke chains, pinch collars and similar (and, let’s face it, often scary-looking) products.
