12. The wrong Collar
There are a lot of things we do to our dogs that we don’t think much about but can hurt them tremendously. One of the things you should be paying close attention to is what Collar you choose for them. When you go to a pet store, you might be overwhelmed – there are so many sizes, lengths, materials, and types of collars to choose from. But, don’t fret, there are several ways to figure out which Collar is the best for your pooch.
First, you must determine what size to get your dog. Make sure to measure the girth of your dog’s neck before going to the store – or take them with you! Many pet stores will provide a leash for you to use in the store, and that way, you can make sure you’re buying the right size.
Generally speaking, if your dog is small, you’ll want a thinner collar, and a thicker collar is better for larger dogs. But, another thing to consider is whether or not your pup pulls a lot while you’re walking them. If they do, you’ll want to invest in a harness so that they don’t choke or hurt themselves when they’re pulling.
Every dog has different requirements, and if you’re still confused about which Collar to purchase, then ask an employee and read the information on the Collar. By doing these few things, your furry friend will be much more comfortable and safe, and you’ll be happier too!
