    Default May need a new collar.. What do u use?

    Hi all, boo's almost a year now, he's using regular leather collar-imageuploadedbytapatalk1343650178-257263-jpg but he can easily break free from it.. Since the head is as big as his neck.

    He didn't ran away that far, and he never bites (just slobber) but people are often scared and ran. Which would prompt boo to chase after them in a playfull manner.

    I prefer collar over harness on a walk, and he has a harness to use on car ride, but i want to know if there are a good strong collar that wont harm the bully, only makes it harder for them to break free..

    Any ideas?

    Some people swear by the Martingate style collars - I've never used one - they actually tighten when the bully pulls.
    We use KONG NYLON Collars, and its mostly for ID tags... and Harnesses for out in public.

    Harness is the best. harnes = no choking bully

    martingale collars are awesome. They tighten the whole way around so that you don't pull on your dog's windpipe. If you don't want a harness, I would suggest this collar. I have used it with Charlotte and it works well.

    I agree with the martingale type collars. I use them for my boston, boxer and now my OEB. They are great as they aren't tight on their necks when not on leash and they can't slip out of them and you can get some cute patterned ones.

    After I saw the damage done to Otis's neck from a collar, I won't even keep one on for their tags.

    For me, her name was Abby

    Harness is always preferable, but i find boo to be more submissive and easier to handle on a collar..

    Any collar used for control is going to put pressure on the windpipe/esophagus. Definitely not a good choice for a bully IMO. There are harnesses that give excellent control. And safety.

    I bought a nylon harness, I find it slips around and doesnt stay on nice unless its fairly tight, which I feel would be uncomfortable... am I doing something wrong ?

    The harness is supposed to be snug. You should only have enough room to slide your index and middle finger (side by side) in between the body and the harness.

    I just bought the Ezydog Chest Plate Harness! Great reviews and decent price.

    Here is a picture of a random dog wearing one

    I only use a harness as I don't really like collars but I do worry that Ftse does not have a tag on.
