How to choose the perfect Dog Collar

The most crucial part of choosing the ideal collar for your dog is picking a collar that is the correct size and style. Nowadays, there are so many options available to dog owners that it can become confusing very quickly. It is important when selecting your dog’s collar that you consider the size and weight of your pet as well as the activity that your pet undertakes, be it brisk walks or training exercises.

Smaller dogs and puppies need thin collars which larger dogs generally need thicker collars. When fitting your dog’s collar, try to see if you can fit two fingers between the dog’s collar and its neck.

This, in theory, will mean that there is enough space for the dog to breathe comfortably, but not enough room that the collar could slip off.
Barker and Bone’s buckle collars are a fantastic choice for most dogs. They are less likely to come undone when your dog is out being active and are really well suited to growing puppies. Nylon collars are an excellent option for dogs that like to go swimming or get dirty regularly!

Nylon collars tend to be able to avoid fading colour better than other types of collars. They are easy to clean with warm soapy water.
