    Oh ok. Ya I think until they get chipped I am going to leave them on. I am just so afraid especially Mia will take off on me. Thank you.

    Hi Yvette, we leave the collars off them when they are at home, when we go for short walks, or potty breaks, we put their collars on which have their name tags, and rabies tags, just in case they get away. When we go on longer walks we use a harness. Our guys were microchipped by the breeder before we got them. I'm not afraid of them taking off from the house, but I don't leave their collars on in the house, because it can rub and cause hot spots, or irritation on their skin, and I think it's more comfortable for them to have them off when they are laying down or sleeping.

    I don't like Chance wearing a collar so he wears his harness a buddy belt at all times. For training purposes he has his belt and a light leash on in the house so that i can catch him easier and also correct him. He was micro chipped at 8weeks old, since there has been a lot of stolen bullies in our area.So glad Mia has a big protector brother now I wonder what else is on her wish list Lol

    Mine only wear collars when we walk them or get them out of the car when traveling. I've noticed that a lot of people keep harnesses/collars on all the time. I guess it's personal preference. Mine have no need to wear them because they are always right beside us. Now if they were runners, I'd probably keep one on them.

    Hey Monica, ya with Chubbs I know that will happen for sure the previous owner told me. Ya that's why I'm on the fence about it. Chubbs I think I will leave off Mia I think I will leave it on. I was just so afraid that all her loose under neck was all going to compress together and it would be uncomfortable or something lol. Worried mommy. I tried to look at members pictures before I posted this but seen both so just wanted to see.

    lol ya he has no problem protecting her or me. lol and that's funny cause I think I have to put her on a better harness. I have some from petsmart going to invest in better ones so maybe I can use those. before I got her I took a picture the breeder gave me and was matching collars leashes and harness to her skin color. Now she has about 4 collars. If I could find clothes easier for her and Chubbs I would probably be dressing them up lol (as if they were chihuahuas)😃

    Ya I guess to it all depends on how well trained your bulldog is. Mia ya she doesn't mind commands like sit or lie down up basic but come here we are definitely working on. The other day my 13yr old not paying any attention go fig. lol accidentally left the gate open and she darted to next house and I ran after her and she thought it was funny and a game. So I calmed down and went back to my house called her and she came but in my mind I was like NOOOOOOO. So ya now this thread is started all cause of that incident.

    I don't leave collars on my dogs unless we leave the house… I'm afraid they may get choked in their crates, and Roxie has a bone spur in her neck so I don't want to aggravate it anymore than I have to.
