Dog Collar Types
Usually your pet’s trainer or vet will be able to recommend the best dog collars for your pup you should use but knowing what different dog collar types are available in the market can help you decide on your own as well. Three of the most popular collars based on types and uses include:
Dog Buckle Collar
This is the most popular type and includes a ring around a belt which can be used to attach identification labels/tags. You can also use it to attach the dog license copy. Just in case you do not wish to use metal tags, try a tag pouch in leather that is easily available for these types of collars.
Muzzle Collar for Dogs
This is a mesh cover/cup that fits your pet’s mouth and nose and it goes back over the pet’s head with straps that go round behind the ears.
Head Dog Collar
A head collar is similar to the muzzle but not same. It does not allow your pet to pull against pressure you exert on its neck.
However, there is a range of other types of collars too. Collars may not just be used for training alone. If you own a large dog, a collar can serve as a useful handling tool to help guide your dog around the house too. In fact, keeping a collar on to your dog will soon develop a habit in it to wear one. A collar is particularly useful when your dog decides not to follow a command or jump upon a guest. Usually, a head collar is the most popular type used in training. For regular home use, your dog can go for a simple belt-buckle collar that will not put him to any discomfort even while sleeping.
Then, there are the metal chain links and choke chain type of collars. These are the best dog collars for use with heavy dogs in intense training sessions or while taking your dog for a walk. This is the only collar that is sold on the basis of the length of chain you require.
prong and pinch collar is not considered very humane but it is
occasionally used for extremely unruly and disobedient dogs. This
collar covers your dog’s neck flatly from all sides and will tighten
when you pull on the leash causing some of the metal prongs, though
blunt, to pinch into your dog’s neck.
I would not recommend using these collars if you do not know how to properly use them or do not know someone who does.
But all said and done, dog lovers cannot resist fancy collars either. With all kind of punk canine designs or romantic motifs, these are some of the best dog collars to use on a pet that has grown up and is wise enough to be a disciplined member of the household.
But, utility aside, you cannot choose a collar that doesn’t suit your doggy’s personality. A poodle is going to look pathetic in one of those heavy chain collars but will look just that wee bit more cute in a ribbon-bow collar. Also, ensure that the collars fit properly. Having their collars Too lose or too tight will only cause discomfort to your pet.
