Amazing Different Types of Pet Collars
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. For one to know the collar types that are healthy for their pets they should research. Many times, different collar types are used by people on their pets, and they have their advantages and disadvantages. The different types of collars that are used on pets are; choke chains, pinch collars, rolled or flat collars and head halters among others. The most common by far is the flat collars or the rolled ones. Although they can be dangerous in certain situations, they are easily used to attach identification tags to the pets.. They retain their size and they are easy to slip on and off. Despite retaining their size they can be dangerous to extremely playful pets as the mouth can get caught in another pet’s collar.
The choke chains is the other type of pet collars and it was the most used training collar traditionally. The choke chain would be jerked by the professional trainers producing a sharp and strong jerk that could stop the pet, especially a dog from doing what it was doing to doing something else. Most people use the choke chains ineffectively since they are not that easy to use. Serious problems can be caused to the dog from yanking the choke chains. 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. The martingale type for an example. When the dog pulls they tend to tighten although they are more like the flat collars. Therefore, to ensure that there is no strangulation, they should be well adjusted for the safety of the dog.
Just like the choke chains, another collar is the pinch collar which was used for training. A greater surface area than the choke chain is what this type of a collar has and therefore when jerked it does not produce as much pressure as the choke chain. Since any pet can get a regular collar, one should give their pet a special treatment and that means they need a special collar as they are. There are stylish collars for pets that are customized to fit the trend in the street. With a customized collar the pet will look as stylish as ever. Personalizing of some pets collars is with the pet’s name and the owner’s number. Just in case the pet gets lost they are easy to trace. Various ways are there that the collars are customized. Some are customized to get the shape of a bandana while others get the bowtie to their look.
