What are dog collars used for?
Dog collars are used for several reasons, mainly the restraint and control of your dog. Other reasons people buy dog collars include identification, fashion, or protection. You can attach identification tags and medical information to dog collars.
A dog collar and lead are typically used together in order to train and control your dog. They are also used in conjunction with a harness to provide extra support. It is especially important to get your dog used to its collar and lead at an early stage. This will make them much easier to train and going for a walk will be much more comfortable and enjoyable for both of you.
What are the different types of dog collars?
There are several different types of dog collars and they can have different purposes. Whereas all collars are designed to help with control and restraint, some are made specifically for training. You can even get custom design collars to add a little style to your walk. Here are some examples of types of dog collars.
Dog training collars
If you are still at the training stage with your puppy, which never ends for some dogs, a dog collar and lead is essential. Dog training collars in particular have special features to make this process easier. These include vibrations and sounds, remote control, and anti-bark function.
These smart devices include auto-progressive corrections so that they can even go off automatically if your dog barks for instance. They give off small sounds or vibrations and negative reinforcement, but your dog will be in no harm whatsoever. In fact, dog training collars come with a maximum setting for these types of stimulations.
Dog head collar
A dog head collar is used for training as well. It is designed to reduce pulling when your dogs on the lead. They give the owner more control over the dog’s head. These are particularly effective on large or stronger dogs. You will be able to counteract their strength more easily. If you have control of their head, you have control of the dog.
Dog chain collar
A dog chain collar is made from metal links that can tighten and loosen around your dog’s neck. These are used for training and walking purposes. They allow the owner to gain better control and also discourage the dog from pulling.
Flea collar for dogs
Flea collars are designed to prevent flea bites. They are comfortable plastic collars that release pesticides in tiny amounts. These pesticides are poisonous to fleas and get rid of them. Flea collars are recommended for dogs who often have a flea problem. Speak to your vet about other solutions to fleas.
Designer dog collars
If you want to add a touch of your own style to your dog’s collar then you could even opt for a designer dog collar. Many big brand names also produce clothes and accessories for dogs. You will even be able to potentially find matching accessories. Designer dog collars are made to meet certain standards, so whatever the style, you can have peace of mind they will do their job.
Custom dog collars
There are many types of custom dog collars available. It depends on what you are looking for. If you walk your dog at night, it might be a good idea to look into a light up dog collar, or LED dog collar. These are specifically designed to improve visibility. Perhaps your dog often runs off into woods or bushes, this way you will be able to see it from further away.
You can find dog collars in a variety of colours and patterns, so whether you prefer a pink dog collar or a tweed dog collar, you will surely find one that suits your style. Dog collars come in lots of fun designs so it’s an excuse to be creative.
How to choose the perfect dog collar for your pooch
You have a wonderful array of choices and it is important to select the collar which is comfortable and safe for your pet. First decide which material best suits your needs and desired look. Would a robust collar fashioned from timeless leather tick every box or would a quick-drying, lightweight nylon collar match your active lifestyle? Consider any special requirements that you have. Would a calming collar for dogs be beneficial or should you consider investing in a light up dog collar?
Getting the right size is important
Once you have settled on the right material and type of collar, choose your favourite colour from the available shades. A colourful collar can help you to identify your pet from a distance and you will find collars to match your dog’s Harness. Measure the circumference of your pet’s neck to establish the size that you require and remember that you must allow a little extra space for comfort. Your dog’s collar should be neither too tight nor too loose.
