As a dog owner, you know the importance of having a nice, strong collar for your pet. You can opt for a leather or nylon collar; regardless of your choice, it should be durable and comfortable for your dog. When shopping for a dog collar, you should try to find one that fits your budget and suits your dog best.
Leather dog collars
Leather is all natural and will stretch to fit around the neck of almost any dog. When selecting a collar you do not want the collar to be too tight but it should also fit snugly. To insure a proper fit try inserting two fingers between the leather collar and your dogs skin. If you are unable to fit both fingers comfortably you will want to loosen the collar. Make sure the collar is not to loose or your dog is liable to escape! Owners of hunting dogs often elect to purchase a leather collar however, if your dog has a tendency to be in and out of water a nylon collar may be better.
Nylon dog collars
These collars are water and weather proof and are usually cheaper than leather collars. They also come in various styles and colors, helping you to match the collar to your and your dog’s attitude. They do not last as long and are often not quite as durable as leather collars, however. As with leather collars, ensure a good fit.
Dog collars for corrections
