    Do you wear a collar on him inside the house as well? That can happen when moisture builds up underneath the collar.

    Very good point! I keep Brie's off when she is at home. That might help too

    Can you shave the area? Keeping the fur off it will help dry it up. Hope it is getting better for your baby!

    I don't think he'll let us shave it. I agree with the possibility of it being the collar. The last skin infection he had was from his last collar.We bought a kong brand because it seemed to have more cushion but I think it absorbed the sweat and may caused the infection. Any advice on the type of collar you guys all use.

    We just use a regular leather collar, but use a harness to walk her. She never has any if it on when at hone tho. Try keeping the collar off her and use a harness for a bit to see if the helps any?

    We did that for a while and just had a harness on him, and we'll go back to that. But I'm gonna look in to getting him a leather collar then and just keep it off at home. Thanks to everyone for all the advice! This site has been so helpful!
