After some experimenting, along with certain foods, we believe Gino is allergic to nylon collars.
Does anyone know where I can buy some NON nylon collars.  

I know of Shaka Collars, does anyone have any other stores or websites?

Thanks

There might be different types of collars on dog.com or drsfostersmith.com

Good luck!  Hope Gino is feeling better soon!

I don't know of any sites of where you can find non-nylon collars but perhaps checking with a local pet supply store...not a chain store and see if they have any options from their suppliers to order something in from you. I'm sure they must be available. Or perhaps taking some materials to a seamstress or tailor shop and getting one made. I know a few people have made them on here before.

When Chloe started losing hair around her neck we switched her collar to one made of hemp.  All the hair started growing back within a month. Hemp collars

I would try a leather collar from a farm supply or a pet store. We have a Shaka collar for Donner and it has a cloth type material sewed on the inside so the nylon doesn't come into contact with the dog. :D

I wondered the same thing when Logan starting loosing hair on his ears, but he was wearing a leather collar with an occasional nylon PATRIOTS one on game day!

Good luck and my only advise with the leather is because it is a natural material they tend to want to eat it, we take off all collars in the house and Logan jumped up and grab his one day to try have a tasty snack.

Ashley has a Lupine collar ( given to her by her buddy the Vet..he's really sweet on Boxers!)
Funny thing was she HAD a nylon collar, and walking her was a chore, because she would sit down every few feet..and scratch like crazy at it..I thought it was because she is not collared in the house ( due to rough play with the cats, and my fear of her becoming entagled when she chases them UNDER things). But I put the Lupine collar on her..she has never scratched again. Good thing too is they are gaurenteed for life..if anything breaks or wears out..you mail it back..they send you a new one for free. I checked pricing on them..and a 14-22" adjustible was only like 10 dollars here..and they snap on..God I hated trying to buckle the collar on a less than 4 month old wiggle worm!! ( She knows collartime means she's going somewhere..and gets kinda excited! )
