Very many types of collars are there for the pet. There is a need for one to look at the different types of collars before they decide to buy. For one to know the collar types that are healthy for their pets they should research. Many times, different collar types are used by people on their pets, and they have their advantages and disadvantages. Among others, the different types of collars that are used on pets are; choke chains, pinch collars rolled or flat collars and head halters. By far, the most common is the flat or rolled collars. They are easily used to attach identification tags to the pet but can be dangerous in certain situations. They are easy to slip on and off, and they retain their size. To extremely playful pets, they can be dangerous as the mouth can get caught in another pet’s collar despite retaining their size.
The choke chains is the other type of pet collars 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. The choke chains are not that easy to use and therefore most people use them ineffectively. From yanking, the choke chains can cause serious problems to the dog. Never should choke chains be left on pets who are not supervised no matter how perfectly they are used. There are other types of collars that can easily strangle the pet. The martingale type for an example. They are more like the flat collars but they tend to tighten when the dog pulls. Therefore, they should be adjusted well for the safety of the dog and this is to ensure that there is no strangulation.
There is the pinch collar too and it was used for training just like the choke chains. When jerked, it does not produce as much pressure as the choke chain since it has a greater surface area than the choke chains. 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. Stylish collars for pets are there and they are customized to fit the trend in the street. The look of a pet will be as stylish as ever with a customized collar.
