Why not try a ferret collar on her? I did that for a kitten I had that had the tiniest neck.

Mine wear theirs except during the night. Alli wears a collar (we have quite the variety!) but since I got our buddy belt, I've loved it so much that Doug has his ID tag attached to that instead. So he wears that except at night.

great topic. i've always worried about this. there's no way for timmy to get out, but if there were some emergency, say in the middle of the night, and i had to get out immediately, if he didn't have a collar on things might be a it more difficult.

or if i were gone, and someone else had to break into rescue timmy during an emergency, they'd never be able to get him easily without a collar

i keep going back and forth about this. . .

In the winter, I usually don't keep a collar on unless we go somewhere, but now that it's summer and we go for frequent walks and are gearing up to go camping, she practically where's it 24/7.

Mine don't wear collars. They are chipped though. They are mostly house dogs, with a double exercise pen in the back for outside fun. I worry about emergencies too. I had a dog catch his tag in a in floor register, so am pretty well against collars in the house.

Same for us. When my husband was a kid they had a wiener dog get his collar stuck in the carpeted floor and they never knew how long the poor thing was stuck like that. Its scary to think what could have happened.

Default Constant Collar Wearing?

Mine wear their collars indoors. Their tags have their name and my number on it. microchips are great, but I also like knowing how swiftly I could be contacted if there were an unexpected emergency. I've heard of peoples dogs slipping out behind their owners unnoticed. at least with a collar and tag a neighbor could call right away. This happened with my cat once😳. poor thing roamed the halls of my apartment over 8 hrs before I was contacted. He didn't have any tags, collar, chip.
