Pet Collars – There Are Many Styles

You may have checked out many different pet collars for your beloved furry friend. You noticed that there are many different styles to choose from and the materials vary widely as well. These collars have many uses for your pet, including their identity, their safety, and sometimes, just for style.

Depending on the type of animal you have, will determine the size and the material for the one your pet needs. They come in various sizes, and the materials ranging from plastic, leather, to even chain link. You can be decorative and try to give your pet some style or use the basic plain ones that just offer usefulness and no added flair.

Cat Collars

You cat will need one to display their tags; you want to ensure that if fluffy gets lost, your address is displayed and he can be returned to you safely. There really is no need for a leash to be attached to the one for your cat, as I have not seen many cats that are willing to be walked.

You would want to find a thinner option for your kitty, the material is non important as there is no need for restraint. Most people buy pet collars for their cats, just for the he decorative appeal. The cat may not like wearing a pink one with a princess crown on it, but without thumbs, he is helpless and can not stop you from displaying that he is your little princess.

Dog Collars

The pet collars for dogs have different uses than those of the feline. Dogs will need walked, restrained, and sometimes trained with them. Small to medium size dogs that remain mostly in the house can have cloth, or plastic ones without worries of them snapping them when on a walk. You want to make sure the dogs tags are attached so if he is out or gets lost, he can be returned to you safely.

Larger dogs will need to have thicker ones, made of leather or chains. You want to be bale to restrain the dog if he becomes overly excited during a walk. If you run in to another dog and the one your pet has is too weak, you may risk injury to yours or another’s dog.

There are choker pet collars for your dog as well, these are used in training. You may have an overly excitable dog that needs to be restrained more than once or twice during a walk. The choker ones are designed to add pressure on the dog as he strains and pulls against you, eventually training him to be more obedient and calm during an encounter with another person or animal.

The ones for large dogs can be very stylish as well, you can go for the brute look and have spikes on a leather one, or turn your pit bull in to a pretty princess, just like the smaller dogs and even the cats. Whatever pet collars you decide to purchase that fit your needs, always attach the tags on to it, to ensure your pet is always returned to you in the event of them getting lost.
