Here's a sample of some interesting training equipment I came across in my travels. Serious stuff that you're not going to find in your standard catalogs. I'll post these from time to time as I find them. Nice stuff.

Agitation muzzle with bite bar: Constructed of hard leather, with built in mouthpiece. Steel bar wrapped in leather added to the muzzle. It is designed so that the dog can bite down on the mouthpiece while making the hit. Price: $100.00 #MUZ/BB Prong collars with nylon: For quicker action/reduced noise. Price: $12-15 (depending on size), #NPC/M, L, XL.

Bungee tie out: Used to a build dogs' strength and drive. It will develop firm and confident bites from weaker, mouthy or "typewriter" biters. If he lets go, he's gone! Price: $30.00 #BNGE
