    I hate collars, and if i had a dog that escaped, there is no way they would have one on - I know too many dogs who have hung themselves trying to get over fences

    My dogs and cats are chipped, if they get out i just have to hope they get taken to the pound. Even if they had a collar, it makes no difference, if someone wants to steal them, they can just ignore what is written on the tags!

    My dog is also microchipped

    But I would rather someone be able to see her tags, and be able to ring me, than her having to be put in the pound

    I know there have been cases of dogs being hung, but I think theres alot more advantages of her having a collar than not having one

    Boss wears his collar all the time. He looks naked without.

    Im with you Tkay.. I dont like the idea about addresses on the dog tags.

    On Boss's collar he got his id and number, shire dog licence tags and his microchip tag.

    I know there have been cases of dogs being hung,
    Thats why Boss collar is a little too big for him, so if he get caught one something, he can slip his collar

    Batty wears a break-away collar when he's out the back. He's supervised everywhere he goes so I doubt he'll ever get out. When he's not supervised he's either indoors sleeping or in his crate.

    I'm surprised WA requires owner's name and address to be on the collar - that is a security risk for the dog and the owner and their house. Peta23 - I'd write your local rep about that one.

    My dog school requires we use slip collars and there is some off lead work in the more advanced classes. And her tag lives on the flat collar - so slight problem there. But I find in practice, council only enforces the stray dog rule - if someone rings to say there is a dog without its owner wandering around. The rules about wearing tags, about pitbull lookalikes being onlead and muzzled, about being on lead on footpaths etc - all unenforced.

    My cat has one of those break-away collars Angela. I'm impressed with them, they are excellent.

    This part I understand.

    This is the part I dont understand.


    Now wouldnt american pit bull terriers and pit bull terrier breed be the same breed of dog?



    Now has everyone on here been fined before?
    Nope american pit bull is a breed, generic 'Pit bull' has its definition based on several breeds inc the APBT. All dictionaries and encyclopedias say this, and that is where they got it from. It's what is used as a dragnet. It's 'non specific breed specific' lol.

    It's like kelpie, then 'herding dog', many breeds can be herding dogs.

    Or Spaniel then 'Bird dog' etc etc.
