Ginger's still in her nylon puppy collar, but she's just about outgrown it. For Christmas, she'll be getting a new "adult" nylon one to use for walks or out and about, and a leather one strictly for training. None of our pets wear a collar at home, since there's way too much playing that goes on and I don't want anybody caught on anybody else's collar.

My two only wear their collars if we are leaving the house because I don't want their fur to be worn off and they seem to be happier without them on. But when we go out they both have regular nylon collars. Keenyah also wears a prong collar when we go out. Horatio used to have a harness but it doesn't fit anymore and it didn't work good anyway so for now just a regular collar.

My girls wear flat leather collars with buckles. We prefer to call their collars their jewellery.

We take them off at night or when they are in the crate for an extended period of time.

Karma's first collar was a nylon clip and she broke the clip part when she was little. It just snapped in several pieces and from then on i dont trust the clip kind. She has a nylon collar with a buckle for her next stage of growth when she outgrows the leather one.

Sally wears a nylon collar 90% of the time, when she does have it off we tell her she should stop walking around naked...

Just always be very careful to not allow dogs to run free - when you cannot supervise them every second - with their collars on. Every year, dogs die from strangulation when their collars are caught on brush, fences & even in the mouths of other dogs when playing. It is horrific. Please take off their collars when, for example, they are in a contained enclosure such as your fenced yard - to be safe.

When out & about, my Boxers sport leather "spike" collars - they look all rough & tough (which they are not) and if another dog ever laced into them, particularly their necks (gulp), they would conveniently get a mouth full of spikes. It serves a dual purpose. My Cane Corso bitch wears a pink one!

I'm In the "no collar at home camp", but when we go out on leash I have soft rope slip leads for my older two dogs.

Mooshie has a Holt halter with a nylon collar for walking...he pulls too darn hard for a regular collar (I got the rope burns to prove it!)
