The 10 best and widely used puppy and mature dog collars
Missing dog! Do not be a victim, get a dog collar today.
One day while jogging my dog strayed away and could not find its’ way home. I spent 2 hours looking for it and got late to the office. Bottom line I did not find it by the time I was leaving for the office. My mind was unsettled at work wondering where my dog was, I missed my dog and was very worried.
After 3 hours my neighbour called me telling me she had found my dog in her backside crying and trying to jump over her fence to my side. I was so relieved and you should have seen me jumping and dancing in the office. This scare jolted my mind and I thought if I had a dog collar and leash this worry and heartache would have been avoided.
I thought because I had trained my Kiki to respond to my commands she would always come back, which she normally did apart from this particular morning when I had left my dog’s leash and collar in the car and now I know the importance. Dog collars are an essential accessory. I have decided to write on dog collars and look at different types of dog collar and leash for your best friend. I will give you advice and help you choose the right choice for your four-legged friend.
Dog collars are available for large breed dogs like Labradors Retrievers and small dogs like Chihuahua. The dog collars are essential as they hold the pet ID tag and are attached to its leash. Most states require your dog to have a tag with displaying details of the owner in case of wandering around or in trouble. It is an offence if this is not done and can lead to a hefty fine, especially in the USA and UK.
ID implants have been introduced in the UK and electronic scanner can easily identify the dog and owner. It is good practice for any dog in a public place to wear the name and address of the owner on the collar or have a nameplate attached to it for proper identification. Some dogs have wide neck hence it is important to measure your dog neck before you begin your search.
Here are the best and widely used collars to choose from:
