Dog collars are necessary to show your dog’s identification card, in case they got lost, help you walk with your dog, control their behavior and ensure their safety when they’re out, etc.
Since dogs have to wear something such as a collar or harness whenever they’re out—which is very important if you weren’t considering it—you should be sure to pick a comfortable item that wouldn’t hurt your dog because the wrong one may pose some scary risks for your dog’s health.
Some of the dangers that your dog may face because of collars include skin irritation, neck damage, and chocking, which is why you should never put a tight collar around your dog’s neck. You may do that to make sure that it wouldn’t slide off, but you’re literally shortening your dog’s life.
