    Super great idea, perfect for a lazy sunday. I still feel weird not having all of his tags/info with him at all times. Does anyone keep a harness on their dogs all day long? Add tags?

    I try not to leave a harness or collar on my two, mainly because what if they get hung up on something in a different room and I'm not right there to help and they choke but my two also don't really like their harnesses but I have to walk them on them because they can both slip their collar super easy and fast! they don't do it to get away but if something startles them then they will but it has happened with Diesel twice in a busy parking lot so I don't take the chance anymore and make them wear a harness while on walks. but I figure when safe in my house or my secure fenced yard they don't need the collar on, and they are never outside if I'm not home and where I can see them. Is Remi micro-chipped?

    Crazy!!!! I haven't thought of some of these things yet, because Remi is pretty much in my presence at all times, (puppy!) unless he's in the crate. We've initiated a new process for your reasons + the collar wound - by removing all collars/harnesses while he's in there. (Live and learn!!) Remi does seem to like the harness because he associates it with going someplace. The harness fits Remi fairly well these days; in the beginning, I was nervous about him slipping out of it. We do try to keep it fairly loose so it doesn't agitate him though. He seems fairly secure in it, and I feel like I can control him well without hurting him. Regardless, I don't really worry about him getting free on me. For me, it's the safest way to leave the house.

    We got Remi microchipped 2 days after we got him, thank god. I'm guessing it won't help much against theft though.

    I really like the security of the harness on my babies too .. and thankfully they also associate the harness with going for a walk and get excited when the see the harness come out but still don't like it enough to run around in it LOL they stay right next to me when the harness is on ... guess they have taken their walking lessons to heart and when the harness is on you stay right next to mom ... now that I've thought about it, I need to pat them on the head because they are being good babies, it's not that they don't like them it's because they are in the walking mode when they are on!!! did you see that light come on over my head?!?

    As far as the micro-chip, it can't keep anyone from stealing our babies but then again a collar with ID tags won't stop them either, BUT at the vets office they get scanned and the info comes up registered to you it raises red flags

    Do some vets regularly scan dogs that are new you think?

    Awesome idea about the harness/staying close to mom btw. We worked on that actually today at the park.

    I'm not sure if they do or not, but depending on how the person said they got the dog i.e. I found him or something along those lines I would hope they would scan them ... but also if someone took one of my dogs I would have flyers in every pet store, vets office, telephone pole basically every place possible trying to get them back and hopefully the flyers would make vet staff and other places more aware if a dog that looked like mine showed up they could and would scan ... I would hope!

    My boy is chipped, too, but I keep tags on him at all times. While theft is always a possibility, I tend to be more worried about him getting out. Although the likelihood of this happening is very slim since he is always with us, usually stuck to me like glue, but it could happen (natural disaster, fire, house burglarized, etc). If he did get out, I know that he wouldn't go very far away. Hopefully, whoever finds him would immediately call me since I'd know I'd be frantic. If someone found him with no collar or tags then A) they won't know who he belongs to so they can't call; B) would have to take to vet or shelter for ID, which could take a day or longer to get notification that he is found/safe; C) finder would be inclined to think he was abandoned since he has no tags.

    While chipping is important, it usually doesn't assure a fast return or quick notification that you loved pet has been found.

    Augh, very good points. I feel better with the tags myself.

    Yunas collar plastic clip got stuck in-between the crate wires once. Luckily I was right there to hear her first cry for help. I think I was sleeping about 10-15 ft from her, can't remember! Anyway, when I came to see why she helped she was pulling against it trying to get free while choking herself! It was no easy task trying to get her to go forward so I could get it off her, her instinct was to pull away thus choking herself worse. No more collars in their crates. If I had been 2 rooms away I may not have heard her yelp!!!!

No problems since! I found a rolled leather collar which work well with his thick, but short neck.

    We founds ours on eBay. Great price, great quality.

    We bought this collar and it came in today. The package was kind of destroyed, but somehow the collar held up. Can you believe I was totally shocked by what I saw?? First of all, the collar is very round, which makes sense for what it's supposed to do: which is NOT irritate your dog's fur and skin. Yet, still, I was surprised it wasn't flat. #2, I was a little disappointed that the color was so red/warm (not so much brown) and that's really bothering my designer OCD. #3, the ring is too small to clip the leash hook on to. Seriously??

    I was going to keep the color until we hit issue #3 - I'm going to have to return this thing Maybe I can request one with a bigger ring.

    EDIT: Okay, I think we're going to try to cut the collar shorter instead. It's only a $10 collar, so going through the hassle of a return seems silly. Sorry for venting, I'm totally OCD!!

    EDIT 2: Too afraid to snip the color, so I think instead I will buy a bigger split ring so I can hook the leash onto that instead of the collar ring. Auuuugh. Annoying, but the look of the collar is growing on me.

    Here are some photos...

    The color looks good with your babies fur colors! We got more of a brown/tan. I think they had them available in different colors. I didn't have any problems with the ring size, but my boy is grown and required a 22" collar so the hardware is bigger. Hopefully the leather will remedy the skin irritation.
