Fabric flat collars for your dog
Well it is her birthday! Some people give their dogs cake for their birthday (see the pic of Lenny in yesterday’s post, or the lovely Woofs Treats I talked about last week). I just keep buying collars ;-p
I don’t generally dress my dogs up in costumes, but I do like a nice collar. And I found one, made by Rocky and Bud Isn’t it lovely?
I had previously bought her a rainbow collar, as she was from The Rainbow Litter but I always wanted a lilac collar. This one does not disappoint!
There are two main types of collar – flat and rolled. As you know, I am quite partial to a rolled leather collar, such as those sold by Dogs & Horses
However, these are no good for agility. You need a flat collar with no ‘dangly bits’ when competing. If you have something hanging from the collar you will be eliminated. Basically, it’s a risk to the dog as it could become caught on the equipment.
So we need flat collars. I must admit I do love a flat collar, when they have a design as lovely as this one. They are comfortable for the dog to wear and lovely and personal. The D ring to which the lead attaches is bigger than on rolled collars, so it is easier to clip on.
If you need an ID tag to go on the collar, I recommend going to Indigo Collar Tags. They are a bit pricey for a dog tag, but such great quality. They last forever and are very secure, fitting easily but safely onto the collar. In fact I struggled to take a picture where you couldn’t read the address on this one!
