Collars? does your dog wear one?

Ruby, nearly 4 year old is never collared, Elvis, as a pup wears one. Both are microchipped. When Elvis is 100% steady to recall, or old enough to wear a slip lead his collar will be removed and hopefully that'll be last time he has one on. Do you keep a collar on your adult dogs, and if so, why?...My reasons are that working dogs are more likely to get snarled up on deadwood wearing a collar..possibly a lame excuse as I also think they look better without one ,,I'll add a poll.

I like you prefer my dogs 'collarless'.

Always without a collar when working.

When I see our 'cousins' from different continents working their dogs with collars, gps, E collars, I personally Cringe!!!

But just as a side note to this subject.....

yep, I'm aware that i'm breaking the law Hobbsy, but as someone famous once said "the law's an ass"...but tbh I've never been asked or queried by an officer of the law as to why Rubes isn't wearing a collar...mind, we don't go into town that often, and if we did get asked I'd probably say that we'd just been out "working" and I've left her town collar in the pick-up......

Re: Collars? does your dog wear one?

You will very seldom see one of my dogs naked. I have a drawer that has nothing but collars in it. Each either has my phone number on it, or a name plate with a list of phone numbers, and my last name engraved.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.

We also go down this route,If anwen ever got lost gives the opportunity for someone to call the mobile number straight away.We don't however put her name on the tag,makes it easier if someone was to steel her.Although she is never out our sight.Collar comes off at home.

Re: Collars? does your dog wear one?

Collar on when out and about but always off as soon as we get indoors.
I like to have a good strong studded leather collar when out for two reasons, the first is because I like to have our phone numbers on it just incase he got lost... The second most important reason is it offers protection around the neck/throat area if the worst happen and another dog attacked. Our elderly Staffie was attacked quite viciously years ago and it was her collar that saved her life.
I do totally agree that they look so much nicer naked though

Collar on during the day, and then off at night before bed.
Willie has a whole wardrobe of different collars. So stylish! 8)

Re: Collars? does your dog wear one?

Our two wear collars anytime they are not crated (then they are always naked!). They wear breakaway collars to daycare, but they should really wear them at home more often, too.

If they were ever to get lost, I would want my contact information easily visible on them. A lot of people around here would just take your dog and pretend it's a stray if it doesn't have a collar on. It's just another excuse for not trying to return them. And even if they made an attempt to check for microchips, it could be a time that the vet offices were closed anyways. The faster they could be returned, the better in my opinion!

Re: Collars? does your dog wear one?

Gus wears a collar anytime we leave the house. He loves to go get his collar when it's time to go somewhere. We have a sturdy leather collar for him with our name & number on it. Better safe than sorry. I'd hate to lose him. Not that he'll leave my side but you never know what circumstances we might find ourselves in.
