Little things matter in these tough isolation times. Today, Izzy’s new collar arrived from Collaration Martingales.
Well of course we had to fit it and then, what’s a girl to do? Go out in for walks in your pram to show it off!
I don’t recommend collars for walking (Izzy wear’s a harness which is not visible in the video). When walked in collars, there is a high risk of pulling and pressure which can cause trachea injuries and neck strain. Many older dogs I work with have issues in their necks from long-standing walking and pulling on a dog collar.
I also do not support the use of prong, citronella, and shock collars. All of these are aversives and are not Fear-Free.
