Bubba has all that plus his microchip alert tag.



I think it's all about being prepared for an emergency situation, for me. I need to know all my ducks are in a row, and I don't have to go searching for needed items.

The dogs go nakid except when out on walks. With show poodles, you can't leave collars on as it destroy's the neck hair. Even with shorter cuts, I find the collars rub and cause the coat to matt in the area.

My dogs are chipped and I have heard of situations with friends where their dog has gotten hung by their collar. I'd rather be safe than sorry when I can't supervise.

I would not want to leave a collar on a hunting dog either. There's the danger of it getting caught on something. I do put their collars on when I'm hiking with my dogs, but they're never far from me.

Sandy has her's on all day and it is only taken off during a bath or if we go swimming in the lake.

Mine all have flat buckle collars on all the time too. Ty loves his collars, even the shocker one for the yard. I leave it on him all the time too because Rocky knows how to open the sliding glass door and if in the event someone does lock the safety latch, not just the lock because he can do that too, but the little safety one, they will all get out. I can't ever loose my little baby and with out that shock collar he will be over that fence in a second. My fear with that is at night he would chase something so far he couldn't get back home. So best to be safe then sorry.
Mine all for the most part love there collars, all but Keegan. She will get used to it though. I buy them new ones all the time.
oh, and as long as we are on this subject, if anyone in there internet travels comes across matching ones I would be so happy. I want ones with print on them, and I want one color for the boys probably like black or blue and another with the same print but in red or pink. Oh, and they have to be the big ones like two inches across. If anyone see's some for a reasonable price let me know. I have found some really fancy sites that have some for like $40 a collar. I can't afford that with nine of them. Even Lupine doesn't have anything like that.

I use Martingales (show leads) on my guys because Napoleon is in a continental and a collar would ruin his coat. Sophie is in a Lamb clip but I still would rather not use a collar as it can matt the area if you arent careful.

So no, my little guys go naked!

Abbi on the other hand has a huge pink studded collar that she wears at all times. Being on rural property it is a must. She looks too much like a dingo and if she were to roam onto another neighbouring property without a collar she would almost definately be shot. Just a security measure to let the local farmers know she is a pet.
