How to Fit the Leerburg Dominant Dog Collar

These collars come in 1-inch increments starting at 8 inches to 28 inches in length.

Measure the dogs neck just under the jaw and right behind the ears. Use a string or cloth tape measure. The string should be VERY SNUG. It should be as tight a measurement as you can get it. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you have the tightest possible measurement located at the top of the neck directly below the jaw line. Order a collar that is the exact length of that measurement.

If you have measured your dog's neck properly and your dog's neck size is in between two sizes, then order the collar that is smaller. For example if your string size is 13 ½ inches, then order a 13-inch dominant dog collar. (The hardware is smaller on the dominant dog collars that are 8 - 12 inches. The hardware is larger on the collars that are 13 inches and larger.) If you are questioning your measurement, please call us first and we will talk you through the process.

Here's another example: if the string that goes around your dog's neck is 14 inches, then you order a 14-inch dominant dog collar. DO NOT ADD INCHES FOR SLACK! The slack is already accounted for because of the hardware used on the collar.

It is SO VERY IMPORTANT to get a tight, snug measurement. There should be no extra room at all between the dog's neck and the tape measure or string.

When these collars are properly fit they will stay in place and not slip down the neck. If you start adding inches to the string you will get a collar that is the wrong size. It will not stay in place and not be as effective for training.

This collar is not intended to give a painful correction. It is intended to take the air away from the dog.

More dogs are put to sleep every day for aggression problems than any other reason. Very very few of these dogs are beyond saving. With the right training and living with owners who understand how to control their dogs environment the vast majority of dogs can be rehabilitated, safely controlled and live a managed life.

Killing a dog must ALWAYS be the last resort. Learning how to use a dominant dog collar can and will often make the difference between having a dog put down or ending up as a pack leader and a dog the you can live with.

This collar was designed to be used on handler aggressive or dog aggressive dogs. Using a prong collar on these kinds of dogs often over stimulates the dog and makes them hectic and more aggressive. Using a dominant dog collar correctly (with emphasis on correctly) on the same dog takes drive and fight out of the dog.

Some countries (IE Australia, and a few in Europe etc.) do not allow remote collars (electric collars) because animal activists who have no experience training dominant dogs have taken control of their legal system. These dominant dog collars are a viable alternative.
