Very many types of collars are there for the pet. Before one decides to buy a collar, they need to look at their different types. Research is good for one to know which collar types are healthy for their pets. Many times, different collar types are used by people on their pets, and they have their advantages and disadvantages. Among others, the different types of collars that are used on pets are; choke chains, pinch collars rolled or flat collars and head halters. By far, the most common is the flat or rolled collars. To attach identification tags to the pets they are easily used but can be dangerous in certain situations. They are easy to slip on and off, and they retain their size. To extremely playful pets, they can be dangerous as the mouth can get caught in another pet’s collar despite retaining their size.
The other type of pet collar is the choke chain and it was the most used training collar traditionally. By the professional trainers, the choke chain would be jerked producing a sharp and strong jerk that could stop the pet especially a dog from doing what it was doing into doing something else. Most people use the choke chains ineffectively since they are not that easy to use. The choke chains can cause serious problems to the dog from yanking. Choke chains should never be left on pets who are not supervised, no matter how perfectly they have been used. The pet can easily be strangled by other types of collars that are there. For an example, the martingale type. When the dog pulls they tend to tighten although they are more like the flat collars. Therefore, they should be adjusted well for the safety of the dog and this is to ensure that there is no strangulation.
There is the pinch collar too and it was used for training just like the choke chains. When jerked, it does not produce as much pressure as the choke chain since it has a greater surface area than the choke chains. One should give their pet a special treatment since any pet can get a regular collar and that means that they need a special collar as they are. Stylish collars for pets are there and they are customized to fit the trend in the street. With a customized collar the pet will look as stylish as ever. Some collars are personalized with the pets’ name and the owner’s number. They are easy to trace just in case the pet gets lost. There are various ways the collars are customized. Customization of some is to get the shape of a bandana while others get the bowtie look.
