Dog collar safety is a huge topic in the world of pets, and today, I would love to share some reasons why that is, and why collars are such an important topic. So, the question remains - should you take your dogs collar off while they are inside? Lets try and find out...
So what are the dangers of dogs wearing collars while they are indoors?
I have to be honest.... there are some people who are very adamant on the fact that any time a dog is inside, their collars should come off right away. I can't say that I fully agree with that. I mean... sure, maybe some dogs prefer their collars off. And if that's the case, then fine, all the power to ya! But for safety reasons? I think it seems a bit much to have to take their collars off in the house when we are home with them.
However, I do think it is definitely dangerous to leave your dogs collar on while they are in your house, by themselves. There are several dangers you may not think about... collars can get caught on things, and when they get caught, it could cut off your dogs airway... by the time you get home,it could be too late. I am sorry for being blunt, but it's true. We need to remember these things. Collars are an important part of being owned by dogs, but knowing when to use them, and when to leave them off, is super important. So please, use common sense, look around for possible dangers, or things your dogs collar could get hooked up on, and when you leave the house, it is a great idea to leave the collars off of your beloved pooch.
If you are concerned about your dog running out the door when you get home, and he is not wearing a collar - teaching a good, solid, sit, or wait command can come in very handy. Stay tuned to a future post where I will share some great tips on keeping your dog in the door when you come home, rather than him running out every time the door opens.
