Finding Your Dog’s Working Level
Disclaimer for Collars:
Only purchase Herm Sprenger brand prong collars.
- purchase prong collars that have been altered with snap buckles, covers, or rubber tips as these things inhibit the effectiveness of the collar making them useless.
- purchase prong collars that have an alligator clip. These are more likely to come undone.
The Following Images Are Examples Of What NOT To Buy
Here’s a link to prong collars we use and recommend as well as other training collars.
Please note, when purchasing any collar, please measure your dog’s neck first to ensure the appropriate fit for your dog. Extra links can also be purchased to increase the collar’s size to fit your dog.
When purchasing a slip chain, measure the base of your dog’s neck and add 4 inches to the length. That is the length of chain you will be needing. This is to be used in conjunction with your dog’s prong collar or with an e-collar.
The brand I recommend is Baskerville. It allows the dog to both eat food, drink water, and pant appropriately making it ideal for extended wear. PetCo generally carries them, Pet Supplies Plus carry them sometimes as well. Otherwise, you can order them online.
JAFCO is another recommended brand. Always opt for muzzles that have a 3rd strap across the forehead for added security.

Canine Perspective will ONLY train with the Dogtra brand of e-collar. This ensures consistency amongst all clients and their dogs. Dogtra is the best brand by far and is worth the investment.
Jesse will inform you which collar(s) will be suited for your specific dog’s personality. DO NOT buy a collar not recommended by Jesse.
