Knowing the Different Types of Pet Collars
Very many types of collars are there for the pet. One needs to look at the different collar types before they decide to buy. For one to know the collar types that are healthy for their pets they should research. Different collar types are used many times by people on their pets, and they have their advantages and disadvantages. On the pets, the different types of collars that are used are choke chains, pinch collars, flat or rolled collars and head halters among others. The flat or rolled collars are by far the most common. To attach identification tags to the pets they are easily used but can be dangerous in certain situations. They retain their size and they are easy to slip on and off. Despite retaining their size, to extremely playful pets they can be dangerous as the mouth can get caught in another pet’s collar.
The other type of pet collar is the choke chain 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. Being not easy to use, most people use choke chains ineffectively. Serious problems can be caused to the dog from yanking the choke chains. No matter how perfectly choke chains have been used, they should not be left on pets who are not supervised. Other types of collars are there that can easily strangle the pet. The martingale type for an example. Although they are more like flat collars, they tend to tighten when the dog pulls. For the safety of the dog, therefore, they should be adjusted well to ensure that there is no strangulation.
The pinch collar is there too and just like the choke chain it 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. 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. For pets, there are stylish collars that are customized to fit the trend in the street. The look of a pet will be as stylish as ever with a customized collar. Some collars are personalized with the pets’ 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.
