About Chihuahua Collars
Are you by any chance looking for some chihuahua collars to make sure your little dog is properly leashed? Or perhaps you are giving your dog training so that he will learn some Basic Obedience skills? There are actually countless doggie collars available in your local pet stores but the question remains “what do you really need to find the best doggie collars for your Chihuahua?” Consider the following details about the various collars that you may find available in the market. Take advantage of the tips that this article may share with you about the various types of Chihuahua collars in the market you may choose from:
Chain-Choke Collars for chihuahua
These dog collars are actually called choke chains because you will only need to pull the chains to choke the dog to make him listen to you. They were actually designed for training dogs but since the Chihuahua are a breed of energetic, sensitive and stubborn dogs, some dog owners find solace in using these types of collars when walking them. But the downside is, the chains might just be too heavy for your dog and he might end up getting a serious injury with such slip collars. I personally am not a huge fan of these collars.
Flat Buckle chihuahua Collars
This type of collar is actually more recommended for Chihuahuas. They are made with snap closures so that your dog will not get hurt while wearing them. These buckle Chihuahua collars are wider than the usual collars available for Chihuahuas but then you are guaranteed that there will be less pressure on the neck of your dog. Try to find if there is an adjustable collar you can buy for your dog since these adjustable collars are another excellent option especially if you are still puppy training your dog.
Leather Strap Chihuahua Collars
The standard type of chihuahua collars are actually the leather-made collars.
There are nylon-made collars for Chihuahuas available in your local pet stores as well. A good example of this would be the “greyhound collar” which is equipped with two pieces – the band that encircles the neck of the dog and the slip of nylon that circles the ends of the bands. The great thing about this type of collar is that even if your Chihuahua moves a lot, he will not get choked unlike if you will use other types of collars such as the choke-chain collar.
In a nutshell, it only goes without saying that regardless of which type of Chihuahua collar you would like to choose, it will only have to boil down to one thing and that is – the comfort of your dog more than anything else. Since collars available for Chihuahuas vary, you will need to pin down the one that will best suit your taste at the same time, your dog’s needs. There are the flat collars, the leather-made, the nylon-web, the chains, the cotton-made and a few more others. Whichever you choose, make sure that the one you are getting is the one that will give your Chihuahua the greatest comfort of all.
