There is a wide variety of collars sold online or in stores, and some are not healthy or safe for your dog. Without knowing the effect of an individual collar, by wearing it, your dog can succumb to health complications or even death. There are many types of collars which include: rolled or flat collars, martingales, choke chains and pinch collars. Each and every collar has its advantages and disadvantages, but as a dog owner, you should strive to get the best collar for your puppy.
The most common collar is the flat or rounded collar that fastens with a buckle or a plastic clip. The collars are most suitable to slip on and off. They can hold your dog’s identification, rabies, and license tags. The collars retain their size, but sometimes they can be dangerous to your dog. Puppies involved in rough play can get their mouth caught in the collar of another dog. When struggling to get loose, the collar tightens, and the dog can suffocate. Break-away collars are convenient for puppies involved in this kind of play.
Choke chains are worn while training for correction; they give a sharp jerk that is strong enough to make the dog stop what it is doing and do something else. The chains are not that easy to use, and there are some techniques that only professionals understand. Choke chains should never be left on an unsupervised dog; they can get got on something and tighten to the point of being strangled. Dogs with short noses, bulging eyes, and small trachea should avoid choke chains.
Martingale collars are similar to flat collars, but they tighten when the puppy pulls. The tightening does not necessarily mean the collar is used for giving correction the way a choke chain is used. They are less likely to slip over the dog’s head when adjusted correctly than a flat collar. The collars are fitted in such a way that even at their tightest they cannot strangle the puppy.
Harnesses are the most common alternatives for collars. They are recommended for a dog such as pugs which have short noses. It is important to choose the right harness for your dog, front-attaching harnesses are the best. Collars are the best for puppies that do not have certain features. The collar must provide comfort for your puppy every time.
