The "Volhard" Training Collar

The "Volhard" training collar was not invented by the Volhards, but by John Saucier, who founded Handcraft Collars in  1960. The official name is the 'Snap-Around Training Collar." The Volhards began using the collar in the late '60's because they liked the ease of its use, as well as its effectiveness.

The collar is made of nylon and a unique construction - it does not stretch and lasts for years. It has a clasp and two rings -  a stationary one and a floating one. The collar is put around the dog's neck and the clasp is snapped onto the floating ring. The leash is attached to the stationary ring, thus making a training collar. The collar is available in 1/2-inch increments and different colors.

The principal advantage of this collar is that it can be sized to the exact dimensions of the dog's neck without having to go over its head and does not damage its fur.

It was dubbed the "Volhard" collar by the Monks of New Skete in their book "How To Be Your Dog's Best Friend" 2nd E, after the Volhards gave a training seminar for the Monks.
