English term or phrase: a stroke collar
the said "stroke" collar can be dangerous for dogs
Isabelle Garnier
French translation:"collier etrangleur"
Explanation:
I think that there is a mistake in the english text. The expression should be "choke collar" rather than "stroke collar". Choke collar is translated by "collier etrangleur".
I read that the choke collar can be dangerous if the dog is left with it unattended, as it can catch on a root or something in his environment and choke the dog. Some people also find it objectionable as aggressive and barbarian a way to train a dog.

Indeed I checked and it was "choke" collar and not "stroke". It was a mistake in the text.
Thanks for the very useful help ! Isabelle

Collier étrangleur


Explanation:
Je n'ai pas de traduction certifiée, mais j'ai souvent vu ce genre ce collier composé d'anneau de metal avec ou sans ergot(s) pointant vers le cou de l'animal. Il est certain qu'il peut parfois etrangler ou blesser.

un collier étrangleur


Explanation:
nothing new... just to confirm.. a "stroke collar": un collier pour chien sur lequel il y a un système de picots qui s'enfoncent dans la chair du chien lorsque celui-ci tire dessus. Un peu cruel, non?
