I only use collars for ID tags, I always walk them on harnesses!

I don't use collars except when outside/traveling. I have 4 dogs in the house, and with wrestling etc, I'm afraid they'll get their teeth tangled up. Also tags hanging down are just the thing to get caught in something. IE: I had a pit bull mix that got her collar tag caught on a floor register. Thank goodness I was right there. She pulled that floor register right out! I told her 'down' and fortunately she did and I was able to get the tag out of the register.

This scares me as well. I had a collar on Odie for awhile when she was younger and I made sure it was tight enough that it wouldn't come off but just loose enough to be comfortable. I came downstairs to find her with it stuck in her mouth holding her jaw wide open and her really panicking. It was terrifying and now I only use collars when I'm right there to supervise. I'm sure it depends on what type of collar you use though, mine had different settings to change the size and maybe it was too easy to make it looser.

Sorry to side track the original question!! What UK site are you ordering your buddy belt from?! Thanks xx

Same here - only put collars on them when we take them out, to much of a risk in the house!

Hi Melissa, Bella wears a cat collar with the bell removed, they tend to be made out of really soft material and I like the fact that they are designed to snap open if god forbid they got caught on anything. I just attached her little ID tag where the bell used to be.

Probably from that notforpussys website. They're the only stockist for the UK. There are sites that ship to the UK but you could possibly incur extra tax charges.

That's a clever idea. I'll have to check those out.
