From puppy to senior
Over time you will, or maybe you already have, buy many different collars. The first comes as a puppy, then the dog is suddenly bigger and the very first collar no longer fits. A bit sentimentally you notice that your little darling has already grown quite a bit. Just in the litter box with the many siblings, he or she suddenly became a brawler, a cinnamon tick or a silent observer in the dog school.
It doesn’t matter – because now you need a new collar! A beautiful, practical collar – just as beautiful as your own dog – one that fits best until the end of your life. Even if this idea is probably utopian, your four-legged friend will probably spend a large part of his time with the collar.
A collar is mainly needed to “control” the dog when walking or training with the dog. You can also put the dog tag with phone number, the Tasso badge and / or the rabies tag on your fur nose there. Reminder: If the phone number changes, you should also change the dog tag. So start quickly and compare!
Prevention is better than aftercare
No matter which of the many types of dog collars you have chosen, regularly check how robust and secure the collar is. Signs of wear and tear are normal and will occur depending on use. Nevertheless, you have to make sure that it does not threaten to break on the next jerk. Because let’s be honest: A collar that breaks the next time you pull it does not serve its purpose.
You should also check the size regularly. The dog’s neck also changes over time. And that doesn’t (always) have to do with the fact that the four-legged friend has become too fat. On average, when closed, two fingers should fit loosely between the dog and the collar. For dogs with long fur, please always make sure that no fur is pinched. This is not only painful, but also very uncomfortable, as all women (and men) with long fur, uhhh hair know.
