If you are in the market for a new collar, keep these points in mind:
The first thing to consider, is making sure that the collar will fit your dog comfortably. If it doesn’t have the right fit, it could cause sores or raw spots on your dog’s neck. Also, if it is too loose, your dog may slip right out of it.
You will need to ensure that the collar and leash together isn’t too heavy and irritates the dogs neck. Be sure to read the specifications listed on the collar before buying, such as the weight of the dog and the suitable age to use it on.
If you have a larger, more ferocious dog, be sure the collar is heavier duty so you will be able to stop the dog with the leash in hand if it starts running.
The best collars to consider are those that are strong and made from leather so they won’t fall apart easily.
There are so many dog collars available to consider. You can spend five dollars to a hundred dollars on a collar, just be sure that the collar will work for your dog and will be comfortable.
