There is no such thing as too many collars

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.
