Dear Petcollars users, It is a pleasure for us to welcome you to PetCollars Forum.
This website was born of love feeling for pets, especially dogs and cats. We wanted to create something related to pets and we thought it might be a good idea that this website would be dedicated for pet collars.

A collar is the most outstanding feature for dogs and cats which can be put them on.
There is a wide range of purposes about using of pet collars. Tradicionally, they have mainly been used for control and identification but you could discover other different meanings on petcollars website. In the same way, we would like you to share other questions that they make you be curious..We love all about pets and they always keep amazing us!

To start, we would like to tell you about differents basic DOG COLLARS based on their working,

FLAT COLLAR

perrito

 It is the most standard collar for dogs and also it is the most popular. It is usually made of nylon or leather and involves a buckle like a belt buckle or a quick-release buckle. Its working is so simple!..However, this dog collar can only use for being connected with a leash to take under control your dog or so, to be identificated by a pet id tag placed on it.

The rule of thumb says that dog is comfortable with its collar if you are able to get two fingers underneath the dog collar.
We love staring at varied fashionable dog collars that are currently in the market…Many pet collars are such works of art!

CHOKE COLLAR

Choke collar is based on a chain with rings at each one’s ends so that the collar is formed into a loop. When the leash is fastened to the “dead ring”, the choke collar doesn’t narrow around dog’s neck. However, when the leash is fastened to the “live ring”, the collar slips tighter when is pulled so the dog’s neck can be crushed without any control.

Choke-Collar

 We do totally disagree with the use of choke collars. Choke collars are extremely dangerous for dogs, even rather than Prong collars. It seems such a really atrocity to us and we don’t believe in methods which only work due to pain exposure and we consider that the use of these pet collars should be banned, such a in Austria and Switzerland.

HALF-CHOKE COLLAR or MARTINGALE COLLAR

Half-Choke collar or, so-called Martingale collar is made with two loops. The larger loop is around dog’s neck, and the smaller loop is the “control loop”. When you pull on the dog’s leash the smaller loop tighten the larger loop, so it becomes tauter around dog’s neck. Without any tension from the leash, the Martingale collar is properly loose.

These dog collars are also called half-choke collar because of its working making pressure on dog’s neck, but not a complete choke effect like Choke collar. The Martingale’s working is similar to Prong collar but the difference is the serie of dreadful prongs placed on the larger loop turned towards dog’s neck.
The smaller loop can be a chain or a fabric flat.

Martingales-MultiStripe300

At first, the Martingale collar was designer for Sighthound because these dog breeds have a neck wider than their head, so they are likely to slip out of flat collars. In a same way, these dog collars have gained a widespread acceptance among other dog breeds. We don’t disagree with the use of these dog collars because the Martingale collars apply a limited pressure on dog’s neck like buckle collars.

PRONG COLLAR

This dog collar is designed to cause harm on dog’s neck when it is pulled because of a serie of chain links with blunted open ends turned towards dog’s neck. Most of Prong collars work as a half-choke collar or also so-called Martingale collar so, there is a limited traction to constrict dog’s neck but the difference is that prong collar involves blunted open ends toward dog’s neck.

Prong

We totally disagree with the using of this dog collar because we are against all about training dogs by means of painful methods. We think this is not the way to get well-training dogs, as well it doesn’t sort out the cause, only the symptom of the problem when dogs pulls on the leash. We don’t believe in methods which only work due to pain exposure and we consider that the use of these pet collars should be banned, such a in Austria and Switzerland.

SHOCK COLLAR

Shock collars are too so-called as training collars, hunting collars or electronic collars. These collars involve a group of dog collars which work by electrical signal, vibration, tone or spray. Commonly, the Shock collars are too much associated with the delivery of electrical shocks to the neck of a dog through a controlled electronic device placed on dog collar.

They started using about in the lates 1960s to train hunting dogs with a high powered. The use of Shock collars have given rise to many controversial criticism about safety and efficacy.

FLEA COLLAR

Fleas are bitten insects who are nourish by pets’ blood so, they are tiny parasites around pet’s body. Apart from that, they are really upset, can cause alergic reactions and give illnesses.

PULGOSOdescarga

This easy-to-use dog collar involves some chemicals that repulses fleas. It is used like a supplementary collar with a conventional buckle collar.

Conventional Flea collar avoids fleas can be caught by our dog or cat when it is wandering outside, although there are specific current flea collars in the market that have been designed to kill adult fleas and larvas as well. You mustn’t forget once fleas are set up at home, it is much tougher to wipe out them than if you had done anything to avoid them at the first moment.

Flea collar are much healtier than other de-flea products. You can get a flea collar for dog and another different one for cat. They are different but they have the same effect.

ELIZABETHAN COLLAR
