You’ve got a dog; you undoubtedly will want to get him a collar next. You should however not just get any dog collar but the right one. Collar choices are affected by the intended role and the type of dog it is used for. You can find collars in various sizes. They can also be bought in different styles.
The task of dog collars are aimed at only one thing-that of controlling your dog. With a dog leash attached to your dog collar, you will be able to take walks when you want and still be able to control your dog. As a result of its importance, you will need to pay attention to several features of your dog collar.
Obviously the size of the collar matters. If your dog collar is too small, you stand the risk of choking your dog. Not a pleasant or nice thing to do. Collars should be loose enough to rotate but not loose enough to slip over the ears of the dog. You should be able to stick at least two fingers in between the dog’s throat and collar. Avoid making the collars too lose though, dogs excel when it comes to making lemonades out of lime. You should also ensure that the material of the collar fits with the breed of dog in question. A collar should be able to withstand the strain that will be caused by an attached leash. A Labrador for instance will require sterner stuff in the way of a collar than a Chihuahua.
Yet another important use of dog collars is the option of personalization that it brings. With a personalized dog collar, you will be able to include the details of your dog’s identity. You will be able to add your dog’s name and your contact information. Collars can also be made to include information like the name of your dog’s favorite meal. These will undoubtedly prove important in the unlikely event that your dog gets lost. Collars can be further personalized with fashion elements. You can get collars in various colors, all of which are designed to ensure your dog gets a different wardrobe every day.
