Thread: Best/most Comfortable Collars?

  1. #1

    Exclamation Best/most Comfortable Collars?

    Ok as some of you may know i had a missing dog incident last week & since then i have decided to fit collars with id tags to my dogs.

    My sister gave me some new collars that she bought in a bundle & only used what she needed & had some left over.

    Anyway i put them on the dogs but they seem a little uncomfortable on them,theyre the usual leather type with small studs/fittings on them.

    I was hoping there would be some type of softer material collar out there but without being to soft as to fall off or the dog be able to remove it.

    Dogs are small breed also.

    *Arrangements for micro chipping are being made also.
    Your thoughts appreciated

    I have rogz for dogs webbing collar with landing strip (reflective stitching) for my dog. Doesn't seem to bother her at all - unless she hooks herself with it on the picket gate and scares the crap out of me (and her).

    I'm thinking of getting two more collars, one non-stretch collar - made of what - I don't know yet, for beach and agility training, and a "breakaway" collar for at home, with tags, so if she does hook herself on something or somebody is dumb enough to tie her to a post, she can get away.

    I can't work out if the rogz webbing collar really stretches or it's just Frosty's neck seems shrunken when it is wet. I think the webbing may actually stretch. Some webbing does that - the only way to get webbing that doesn't is to get webbing from a mountain climbing supplies or sailing boat supplies.

    Yeah i had a situation when i first put the collar on my youngest dog,i only put them loosish so it wouldnt be uncomfortable....what does she do... gets it caught like a gag in her mouth & runs around like an idiot.So had to fit them a little tighter after that but still not sold on using the type of collars i have just for backyard purposes.

    Plus i never have a lead on them anyway as i take them by car to the local dog park & let them run til they've had enough.

    Will do a google search on the rogz & others & see what i come up with,thought id ask here first though.

    IMO that is being irresponsible not using leads on your dogs even if you only drive them from A to B..

    ohh well maybe one day you find out the hard way when something horrible happens to your dogs, such as they do run off onto the road & get hit by a car etc or your dogs go running up to a "non doggy friendly" dog.... but i'm hoping that doesn't happen to your innocent doggies.

    Probably should have elaborated a little more on my post,

    Firstly they still get a lead attached to them when they travel anywhere via foot,just not in the traditional walked on a lead around the local streets way.

    They have never been out the front of my house with out a lead attached except for the one that ran away last week,due to a gate being left unlatched.

    I just prefer to let them run & play in a controlled environment like the dog park cause the other dogs owners are there to control their dogs,rather than walk my dogs around the streets & encounter a stray beast dead set on destroying my dogs & my hands trying to defend them.

    *If i didnt care about my dogs i wouldnt of payed a small fortune for an emergency hysterectomy.

    I didnt join this forum to argue.
