I’ve talked about break away collars and how important they are for the safety of your dog. Leaving any collar on your dog is a recipe for trouble. Dogs can hang themselves on something or strangulate one another if playing with another dog. Break away collars are designed to keep your dog safe in the event their collar gets hooked on something or if they become tangled with another dog.
If a dog jumps, their collar can get hooked on something as simple as the edge of a chain link fence. Playing with another dog can get a jaw caught inside another dog’s collar and this will cause strangulation. Remember, dog collars are designed to be strong enough to withstand the pressure of a dog pulling against it. If it gets hooked on something it will not break, and that is fatal to dogs. Read online the horror stories of dogs that were strangulated wearing collars.
I recommend never leaving collars on dogs, but if you must, use a break away collar. There is a new type of break away collar that I’ve recently found made by a company called Let There Be Collars – www.lettherebecollars.com The new collar is a breakaway martingale collar. Its hard to understand how it works, so I made this video below to show you how it works and give it my review.
Please watch and share the video. For the safety of your dog, please listen to my advice. I’ve gotten personal emails from people who’s beloved dogs fell victim to strangulation by collar.
