Information about collars for your dog

Now that you’ve found a fabulous pet tag, it’s time to find a fabulous collar for your dog! There are a wide range of dog collar styles out there, each with a specific use or application.

Nylon collars are among the most popular and versatile. Traditional buckle closures can be a bit less secure than the plastic snap-closed buckles, so that’s a major consideration.

Leather collars are a durable, attractive option for your dog, but they can be very stiff at first. It can take a few years for the collar to “break in.” But once it does, it can be very soft and comfortable.

Limited choke collars have a small area that cinches tighter when you pull on the loop that you attach to the leash. These are great for dogs who pull on leash, but they can be dangerous as they present a choking hazard if the dog’s collar get’s caught up.

Slip collars are used for training and walking only, as they pose a choking hazard. But they can be a safe and useful training tool, when used properly. They can be made of nylon or chain.

Pinch collars, also  called prong collars, also have a “choke” mechanism. They have a series of prongs that sit around the dog’s neck; they pinch the neck when the dog pulls on the leash. It’s designed to play to the dog’s instincts to yield and submit, as the “pinch” simulates the feeling of the pack leader or mother dog’s teeth on the dog’s neck. But these collars have tremendous potential for injury, especially nerve damage and puncture wounds and the pain can actually elicit aggression due to the pain and resulting fear. Therefore, pinch collars should only be used under the supervision of an experienced trainer.
