What kind of collar is good for a dog
The following are some of the more common dog collars, and explain the advantages and disadvantages of different collars:
1. Leather dog collar like a leash
Advantages: It can be very comfortable to wear on the dog’s neck, and the dog should also feel very comfortable.
Disadvantages: Because the area in contact with the dog’s neck is relatively large, for dogs with long hair that are easy to tangle, if the hair on the dog’s neck is adhered.
2. Columnar leather dog collar
This kind of dog collar is equivalent to rolling the leather into a small tube, and then sewing it on, so that the dog collar has the shape of a small cylinder.
Advantages: Overcome the shortcomings of the leather collar like the belt above, because the collar has a small contact area on the dog’s neck and can be rolled, so it is not easy to cause hair adhesion.
Disadvantages: Also because of the small contact area, when you pull the dog hard, the dog will feel uncomfortable.
3. Nylon dog collar
The material of this kind of dog collar is nylon, and the price is usually cheaper than that of leather.
Advantages: The material of nylon dog collars is relatively light, not as heavy as leather ones, and it feels heavy when worn on a dog’s neck. The colors are bright and there are many beautiful styles. Another plus is that it’s easy to wash off.
Disadvantages: Because it is nylon, it is easy to generate static electricity when the dog wears it. And in order to strengthen the strength, it is usually made thicker. In addition, this kind of nylon is usually woven with thick nylon thread, which is easy to fluff and hang.
4. Chain dog collar
Chain dog collars are basically used for large dogs, and some small dogs will use this type of collar when participating in the competition, because the chain is very thin and can be hidden in the dog’s hair, which is not obvious and will not affect the appearance. .
Pros: Pretty sturdy, great for large dogs with a lot of size and strength. It is not easy to cause knots on the dog’s neck, and the collar is very thin. For long-haired dogs, the collar is almost invisible, and it does not affect the original appearance of the dog at all.
Cons: Feels too strong, not as cute as nylon or leather collars. If you don’t pay attention to maintenance, it is easy to have rust, which will stain the dog’s neck hair.
5. Fork hole belt buckle
After talking about the advantages and disadvantages of dog collars of various materials, let’s talk about the advantages and disadvantages of different belt buckles. Generally speaking, there are two kinds, one is fork hole type and the other is plastic clip-like. Let’s talk about fork holes first.
Pros: Very sturdy, I highly recommend this belt buckle for dogs with more strength. No matter how hard the dog is, it is impossible to tear the collar off.
Disadvantages: Whether it is leather or nylon, it will deform after a long time in the punched part, and the metal collar of the nylon at the punched part will fall off after a period of time. Although it does not affect the use, it is not very beautiful.
6. Plastic clip dog collar buckle
Many small dog collars use this kind of buckle, and the color can match the color of the collar, which is very beautiful.
Advantages: beautiful and very convenient to use, it can be buckled at once when you take your dog out every day.
Disadvantages: not strong, if the dog pulls hard, there is a danger of breaking. Not suitable for dogs of larger size and size.
Dog collars come in a variety of patterns, colors and widths. A comfortable way to wear them can add more fun to you and your dog. Dog collars should be comfortable and have enough space. For the safety of the dog, the collar should not be too loose, nor too tight, and in addition to adjusting the size, the width of the collar should also be suitable for the size of the pet. Smaller, lighter collars are suitable for small dogs and puppies, and wider sizes, higher strength collars, are more suitable for heavier, more temperamental dogs. Outdoors, collars are usually used in conjunction with leashes to limit or discipline pet behavior, and provide more safety for dogs to travel.
