How to choose a collar for your dog 4 ways
An easy first step to take is to measure the size of your dog's neck. You can easily do this by using a tape measure. Once you have the measurements you can compare to the collar package. Be sure that you can always fit two fingers between the collar and your dog's neck.
The second way I would suggest is simply to know the weight of your pet. Many times the collars have something that will tell you the weight range of the dogs that the collars are intended for. This will also help you to figure out how sturdy of a collar you will need that wont break if your dog tries to pull away from you while walking them.
Third I would say pay attention to what the collar is made of. Leather collars can break if too much pressure is applied to them. This is something you always want to think about if your dog is not trained and like to pull you around. Another thing to consider about leather is that it often cracks when it gets washed or wet.
The fourth thing I would recommend is to determine what the purpose of the collar is. Ask yourself if you are buying the collar for training purposes or for the simple purposes of identification or walking your dogs. If the collar is for training purposes you should go into a bit more detail on choosing one. If the collar is for the simple purpose of walking the dog than its a lot less complicated.
In general choosing a collar for your dog is really an easy task. As long as the collar fits and looks good on your dog everything will be fine. When you find a collar in the price range you want to pay go for it.
