February 19, 2010, Newsletter Issue #326: The Lowdown On Dog Collars

Tip of the Week

During a dog's life, you may have to buy a few collars, as he will go through a few sizes until he is full grown. Select a collar that your dog can wear around his neck, snug enough to stay on, but loose enough to allow you to place two fingers beneath the collar. With an adjustable collar, you should have little difficulty finding the right fit. Select the type of material most suited to your needs. This can be either a leather collar or a nylon one. There are some dogs that actually would do better with a harness than a collar. Breeds that are susceptible to a collapsed trachea should wear a harness instead.
