It is a crown for a damaged tooth. Nothing else will really hold up to what a dog does with their teeth.

They are still weaker than natural teeth from what I understand.

Oh, they said the dog just got his first and they were way stronger, I thought they were purpoaely replacing them for strength.

I've also had vets tell me any replacement compound is still not as strong as the natural dog teeth. Titanium is just the best and strongest thing they can get when the dog has tooth damage and needs a cap. It's not for bragging rights or for added strength. Natural teeth is still stronger than titanium.

I saw a special on Shepherds in combat,, it stated they did, at one time, put titanium caps on all the canines. They no longer do that though, except when damage has occured, as stated previously.

There is an individual with years of experience in special operations as a pipe hitter and a k-9 handler who lives in colorado. He imports Slovak GSD and trains them for all the stuff you don't want to know about. His dogs have enhanced teeth to prevent them from cracking. They bite HARD and having the teeth capped before the damage will prevent any future problems when biting into objects. If they loose a tooth or crack one it is drilled in and replaced with a complete titanium stud.

This is quite excessive and only about 1% of working dogs would actually need these. He raises that 1% dog and they are operating around the world.

Would look pretty intimidating if they had a whole mouth full of them, open wide and coming in hot!
