    Default Rubbing Collar

    I feel so terrible!
    I only just realised Roly's collar has been rubbing. It hasn't rubbed skin, just his fur so its all rough and icky. The black on his neck is just pigment, but the pink is his skin.
    His collar wasn't tight at all, I could fit 4 fingers under it.
    Lady's is fine. Any ideas? I think the material of it is called nylon? Im not too sure. Do i need a new collar or what?
    Your probs thinking 'how did she just notice that!?', but the way his collar sits on his neck, you can;t see it.

    Personally I think that can happen when it's too loose IYKWIM. Moves around a lot as the dog moves.

    I don't like collars that much. I take them off dogs every chance I get when they are safely at home.

    Yeah...I think it is a nylon collar too. It might not be the collar per se...but the plastic bits on it that has been rubbing. I would get a soft leather collar that only has the buckle to close it. I like leather collars better

    I also think th nylon ones can be very slippery material, depending on the brand.

    Mine don't wear collars around the house either. I think it is unsafe when they are in the backyard unsupervised and/or in their crates. It is too easy for them to get caught on things and I would hate myself if they hot hurt or choked that way.

    Try rolled leather, it is apparently excellent to stop rubbing

    Well he did have a leather collar, but it would rub at the front.

    Price doesn't always reflect the quality, Myf. Sure they are not too loose, and shifting around a fair bit?
