Alternative Training Collar – Now 6 Sizes!!!


5.0 (3 reviews)

Please refer to our chart on this page to measure the correct size for your dog. FYI – The Medium and Medium II make up for about 70% of all dogs.



The Alternative Training Collar received it’s patent on September 13, 2011, and the patent number is US 645,213 S.

This patented collar functions as a training collar, but without the harmful and abrasive chain pulling against your dog’s neck. It provides a comfortable leather fit to your dog’s neck during training without sacrificing effectiveness. The patented leather collar keeps the chain on the back of the dog creating a comfortable, securing fit when pulled tight. The way the collar fits allows pressure to be outside the dog rather than centering it near the dog’s throat.

Thousands of pet owners have successfully used the Alternative Training Collar and the collar is a popular option among guests on Joel Silverman’s TV Show – What Color Is Your Dog The Alternative Training Collar is built in the United States by Coastal Pet Products and is a licensed patent of Joel Silverman, Professional Dog Trainer.


    • The difference between the Alternative Training Collar and a choke chain is that although the Alternative Training Collar functions as a chain collar, the part that the dog feels on his neck is made of soft leather.
  • Another difference between the Alternative Training Collar and a martingale type of collar, is that when the martingale collar is pulled tight, because everything attaches in the center, it becomes nothing more than a flat collar. With the Alternative Training Collar, once it is pulled tight, the person still has leverage, and is able to make the correction more efficiently.

The collar now comes in six different sizes. To figure out the right size, simply measure the circumference of your dog’s neck. This means you measure all the way around the dog’s neck.  ( check out our size chart in the images)

Once you have measured your dog’s neck, use the table below to determine the right size for your dog!

* VERY IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ – This collar was created to be a training tool, and not created to use as back tie or a tie out. We cannot guarantee that the grommets will not break if a dog is back tied or tied out and lunging.

* Also this collar was designed to use with minimal corrections, and you should never be yanking on your dog using this collar.
