Choke Chain & Prong Collar Size Chart: Wire Gauge

How to Choose Prong Collar Size by the Wire Gauge

Dog choke and prong collars are made of various metal alloys that define their tensile strength in the first turn, durability, and level of rust resistance. Here we will help you to choose the wire gauge of a definite metal dog collar type for the breed of your dog. If you do not find the dog breed in the chart, choose the wire gauge up to the weight of your dog. The dog weight it is accounted for is pointed at the description of each dog collar model. You will find the choke chain and dog prong collar size guide up to dog’s weight at the page bottom.
