I have a small dog collar arrived collar was way to big if I was going to use the collar the correct way. I would have to make my own holes and remove most of the collar which was plastic.
My dogs neck is 10 1/2" when tight.
Wasted money since I had to remove it from its plastic sealed package was unable to return it.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Good value if used correctly

This collar like any product is only going to work properly if used properly. The manufactures instruction is for dogs over 10 lbs. I would recommend using a collar geared toward very small dogs. Also collars with nylon will be easier to adjust for smaller neck size. The next issue is the collar has to be pretty tight to work. It has to be able to come in contact with the skin. For some dogs that may mean that you have to trim the hair. You will need the collar to be tighter than what you would normally think a collar should be. After use for a few days you should see improvement in you dog. But very large or stubborn dogs may not respond.
I would recommend this to a friend!

It says it fits dogs from 6 pounds and up. But it was still too big for my Chihuahua. I had to return the item back to the store.

I have had two of these collars for almost a week now and i am retty sure they are doing nothing. My dogs still bark at will and i have never noticed any type of correction. I wouldn't waste your money.
