With everything I have done and do to keep Tillie healthy and safe, she doesn't wear a collar. This has been nagging me in the back of my mind for months and months now and recently came to the forefront as I found and returned 2 dogs to neighbors over the past week! 1 was the sweetest little B&W 5 month old shih tzu and the other a 9 month old german shepard/lab mix ... both had collars on with tags. I returned both of them before the owners even KNEW they were missing!
Tillie does have a microchip and does wear her tags when her harness is on and we are on a walk or out and about. But, do you think she should be wearing one ALL the time? Do your dogs always wear collars??
also, IF i do decide to have her wear a collar, is there a collar out there that won't matt her? I've heard about the rolled leather collars... does anyone HAVE one of those on their hav and does it REALLY not matt them? I'm not sure if Tillie will be in full coat someday, but her hair is about 4-5 inches long right now and I have no intention of cutting her down anytime soon.
and I REALLY don't want to deal with her whole neck matting because of a collar... what are your thoughts!?
