Do you allow your dogs to wear their collars all the time?
I have seen this question all over the internet lately and I wanted to answer it and see if your dogs wear their collars all the time.
Our answer: No. Our dogs only wear their collars when we leave our property (car ride, walks, trip to vet, etc.) Our dogs all have a microchip, so if they were to escape the yard or somehow get away from us on our property they will still be tracked back to us. Our reasoning why they do not wear collars inside the house and especially when we are not home:
1. We have three rambunctious dogs. They love to wrestle and especially love to pull on each others necks.
2. Hayley (when she was a puppy) actually got her collar pulled up around her neck and caught in her mouth. We caught her instantly before something bad could have happened, but it still happened and scared us.
3. Collars can easy get snagged/caught on things and choke them.
Do your dogs wear their collars all the time?? Have you ever had any incidents where your dog or cat could have been injured from their collar?
