Qualities To Look for When Choosing Your Dogs Collar

Getting a collar for your dog is simple, right? Just grab one of the shelves and you’re good to go… Well, what if we told you, it’s not as simple as you think?

You may be surprised to know that choosing your dog collar should take a bit more thought than just grabbing the first one you see.

After all, we want our paw-fect pooches to be comfortable and have the safest collar possible.

So, today we are going to tell you some of the qualities that you should be looking out for when choosing a collar for your dog.

Qualities To Look for When Choosing Your Dogs Collar

Appropriate Size

Size is crucial when picking your dog collar.

Too big and you run the risk of the collar falling off all the time.

However, if it is too tight this will result in your dog feeling uncomfortable and we certainly don’t want that! So, what can we do to help with this?

The best thing to do is wait until your pup is fully grown.

Then you need to measure your dog’s neck circumference.

If you are unsure of how to do this, then don’t be afraid to conduct a bit of online research to help you out.

Once you have your measurement it is advised that you add some extra collar length onto it so you can ensure that it is not too tight.

Fun Design

Here’s the fun part. Choosing your design.

There are so many different collar designs, and you can really choose a pattern or color which brings out the personality of your paw-fect pal.

Monro Pets are a great place to go if you want unique dog collars and leashes.

They have a huge collection for you to choose from and so many funky designs that will have your dog looking totally bark-tastic!

Who said dog collars had to look boring? Certainly not us.

It is important to note that the aesthetic of your collar is a quality to look out for, but it is best not to let that compromise size and safety.

Size and safety should always come first and then you can have as much fun as you want with the design.

Comfortable Material

When it comes to choosing your collar material, it is important to know that they are not all made from the same stuff.

Some are made with nylon whilst others can be made from materials like leather.

When choosing the material for your collar there are a few things you should consider.

Is it durable? Will it be comfortable? Is it cost-effective?

All of these things should be taken into consideration to ensure you are choosing the best dog collar possible.

Although there may be many benefits of leather collars, this doesn’t mean that they will be the most suitable collar type for your dog.

Instead, it is crucial that you conduct some research into the different material types.

From there, you can then decide which material will work better for your dog.

The main aim is to give your paw-fect pup the safe, comfortable collar that they deserve.
