The Original BiteNot Dog Collar Size 7 Cone Alternative
The BiteNot collar is wrapped snugly around the dog's neck and should be wide enough to extend from behind the ear to the top of the shoulder.
Our german shepherd mix is just over a year old and he is starting to bark and lunge at people. I have no idea why – we have had him since he was a puppy & he has never been mistreated. He is very protective but he’s not trusting us to tell HIM what is dangerous/what is not. A trainer suggested a prong collar, and honestly with other dogs I have had (a collie, a lab) I would never had considered it… but these dogs were a totally different type. They recognized me as alpha and listened. This dog is constantly testing and is just a different breed who requires different tools, as you say. I would be devastated if his behaviour escalated and we had to give him up or put him to sleep. I feel like an irresponsible owner for not being able to control him, but I’m beginning to see the trick is the right tools, and if a dog needs a stronger tool, well, that IS way preferable to death, or having them bite a person. Thank you for putting my mind at ease. We are going to try this tool ASAP.
I have talked extensively about prey drive in my DVD’s and my other articles. When puppies chase balls or run after sticks or bite your pant legs this is an example of prey drive not aggression. When a handler takes the dogs collar and tries to force it into a dog crate and the dog turns and tries to bite - this is aggression - either fear based or something else.

"Finally there is an alternative to the obtrusive cone that my dog used to wear to keep him from licking sensitive skin irritations that occasionally develop after close groomings or romps in nature. The Stop Bite collar is so much more comfortable for my dog and doesn't disorient him the way the cone does. The developer of this product is completely dedicated to accommodating pet owners and demonstrated a graciousness of spirit to me that I will always remember. The professionalism, innovation and commitment shown to me by this company is refreshing and inspiring. I have become a fan of the Stop Bite collar and look forward to sharing my positive experiences with as many pet owners as I can. This is a fantastic product that fulfills a need that pet owners have had for years. Congratulations on a job well done!!!"
- Laura GoodDoes your dog growl, snap or bite when you touch the collar or try to attach the leash? If so, your dog may be suffering from a case of dog collar sensitivity. Don't worry; you are not alone. There are countless dogs with this issue and countless owners dealing with it. Indeed, according to a good 20 percent of dog bites takes place when an owner is attempting to grab a dog by the scruff or collar. How did this happen?My dogs don't focus on the collar when playing but they do grab the neck all the time so sometimes the collar gets in the way. I think alot of dogs play by grabbing the neck and it usually is all in just good fun so don't get too nervous if they both enjoy that sort of activity. Usually if one doesn't like it they will let the other dog know. The dogs have alot of loose skin around their neck that moves around so the biting and hanging on that happens in play doesn't usually hurt them, only if one dog makes a mistake and bites too hard is there a problem.Here’s a product with a very different design. The BiteNot collar, distributed by Bite Not Products, Inc., of San Francisco, California, resembles a neck brace for humans – the kind people have to wear after they get whiplash. The interior surface is a thinly padded foam rubber material; the outer surface is a stiff plastic shell. Velcro fasteners – and a nylon strap that wraps around the dog’s shoulders and under his armpits – hold the product very securely in place.
