For the pet, there are very many types of collars. One needs to look at the different collar types before they decide to buy. One should research and know the collar types that are healthy for their pets. Different collar types are used many times by people on their pets, and they have their advantages and disadvantages. On the pets, the different types of collars that are used are choke chains, pinch collars, flat or rolled collars and head halters among others. By far, the most common is the flat or rolled collars. To attach identification tags to the pets they are easily used but can be dangerous in certain situations. They retain their size and they are easy to slip on and off. Despite retaining their size they can be dangerous to extremely playful pets as the mouth can get caught in another pet’s collar.
Traditionally, choke chains which is the other type of pet collars was most used in training. By the professional trainers, the choke chain would be jerked producing a sharp and strong jerk that could stop the pet especially a dog from doing what it was doing into doing something else. Most people use the choke chains ineffectively since they are not that easy to use. From yanking, the choke chains can cause serious problems to the dog. No matter how perfectly choke chains have been used, they should not be left on pets who are not supervised. The pet can easily be strangled by other types of collars that are there. For an example, the martingale type. They are more like the flat collars but they tend to tighten when the dog pulls. Therefore, to ensure that there is no strangulation, they should be well adjusted for the safety of the dog.
Just like the choke chains, another collar is the pinch collar which was used for training. A greater surface area than the choke chain is what this type of a collar has and therefore when jerked it does not produce as much pressure as the choke chain. Since any pet can get a regular collar, one should give their pet a special treatment and that means they need a special collar as they are. For pets, there are stylish collars that are customized to fit the trend in the street. The pet will look as stylish as ever with a customized collar. Some collars are personalized with the pets’ name and the owner’s number. They are easy to trace just in case the pet gets lost. Various ways are there that the collars are customized. While others get a bowtie look, some are customized to get the shape of a bandana.
