Default Collar recommendation

I want to get Mylo and Willow a collar and an ID tag each and wanted your recommendations. I want something that's cute, not plain but comfortable enough for them to wear every day. I don't want to spend much more than about 10 ($15) excluding shipping. Obviously they need to ship to the UK. In terms of the ID tags I like the metal ones. Thank you in advance!

On a side note, Willow hates clothes so I'm expecting she'll hate the collar, what should I do? Just put it on and she'll have to get used to it or introduce it gradually? Thanks

Default Collar recommendation

Hi Hun, I can recommend the Red Dingo collars on EBay. I love Honeys and want more in different colours!

Obviously I am in love with about a hundred on Etsy too!

I've been recommended to get leather ones too as they soften and mould to the dog - so might get one on future.

I am still letting honey get used to her collar - she wears it for about half the day now. I don't know if that will work with Willow - you might do better just leaving it on her and giving some tough love - she will move/eat/play with it on eventually! Xx

Thanks. I did wonder if the tough love approach might be best. I've favourited some places on etsy...I like the leather collars but they're all so expensive and they tended to be quite wide. They don't wear collars at the moment but I worry that they might get out and need ID on them. I'll check those ones out

I have Rogz jellybean collars for my dogs ID tags ( I like Red Dingo collars but even the smallest size is to big for all my chi's)

I'll have a look for those. That's my concern with Willow. Because she's so small and hates clothes and stuff I want to get something as small and unobtrusive as possible. Thanks

I'm going to order a buddy belt for Mylo next pay day. I've been wanting one for months but I've been waiting until Mylo stops growing because they're too expensive to keep replacing. I need collars though that I can leave on day to day.

While they are still growing I would go for adjustable nylon collars. I would also tie a ribbon or something else light around Willows neck, so she is used to wearing something there, and with you fiddling with her neck, before the collars come. Having said that, i just put collars straight on my new girls and distracted them with food. They are extremely food motivated though, and adults. I would still work up to it with a puppy
