Picking a dog collar is one of the most vital decisions for your pet. Dogs wear collars for training, walking, identification, ward off fleas and ticks or even fashion. You probably want to buy some different collars for different purpose. It’s also the most effective tool of communication with your dog. Have in mind that all collars are not appropriate for all, or even any, dogs.
How do I choose the right necklace?
There is a wide range of dog collars that are available on the market. To find the right for you and your dog, consider your dog’s basic needs, daily activities, and other essential criteria.
Choose a dog collar or harness that suits yours and your dog’s everyday life. For instance a durable nylon necklace with a buckle for a dog running in the woods and ground. A wide half-check collar if you want to be able to take off and on the necklace quickly. A comfortable wide leather necklace for the dog wearing the collar for long hours. For lively dogs, a broader collar is preferable. Harness allows you to have a bit more control over the dog. If you often go for walks during the dark hours of the day, choose a LED collar or one with reflective details.
If you have a puppy, choose an easily adjustable puppy collar with snap.
The best dog collars are those that are comfortable enough for everyday wear but durable enough to stand up to your dog’s biggest adventures.
For those who prefer not to use a harness for walks, the collar must also have robust hardware and fit well and not chafe when attached to a leash.
You shouldn’t use collars that add pressure or pain to your dog’s neck on walks to get them to stop pulling.
