Adopting a puppy comes with many responsibilities. During this period, choosing the right collar is critical for your puppy's health and comfort. A leash helps you keep your puppy under control and makes the training process easier. In this article, I will provide tips and recommendations on choosing the most appropriate collar for puppies from a veterinarian's perspective.

Note: Your puppy's collar choice directly affects his happiness and health.

How to Take Neck Measurement?

The first step when choosing a collar for your puppy is to get the correct neck size. Using a flexible tape measure, measure your dog's neck circumference. Take the measurement from the middle of the neck. This measurement will be your first reference in choosing a collar.

Veterinarian Advice: When taking the measurement, do not forget to leave a finger space. This allows your dog to move freely.

Comfortable and Adjustable Design

Puppies grow quickly, so the collar must be adjustable. It is important to be able to easily change the leash length and adjust the width.

Veterinarian Advice:┬áA ÔÇťcollar typeÔÇŁ design is generally recommended for puppies. This design can be adjusted as your dog grows and is generally more comfortable.

Material Selection

Because puppies are energetic and active, it is important to choose a durable material. Nylon and leather are good choices for durability and comfort.

Veterinarian Advice: To avoid allergic reactions, choose design made from natural materials.

Safety and Security

Puppies are curious and often want to put everything in their mouths. Therefore, safety lock and chain are important when choosing a collar.

Veterinarian Advice: In addition to the safety lock and chain, there should also be a quick-release mechanism for emergencies.

Style and Personality

The collar should reflect your puppy's personality. Colorful, patterned or made from different materials, the design can give your dog a unique style.

Veterinarian Advice: However, do not ignore safety and comfort when choosing a style.
