Default Constant Collar Wearing?

Okay, my recent experience of thinking Dorothy escaped the yard got me to thinking....how many of you have collars on your Chis at all times?

I typically only put a collar on her if we are leaving the property. And I ALWAYS put it on her 24/7 when we go camping. But otherwise I don't have one on her. Most of the time I am even in the yard with her when she goes out to pee. I feel it's cumbersome and uncomfortable for her to wear all the time. But now I am second guessing that. What if she HAD gotten out? ACK!

Beverly and Bentley wear their harnesses if they are outdoors for any reason, even though our yard is fenced. They never wear collars or harnesses when we are indoors.

I worry about her getting caught and strangled while we are not at home if she was wearing a collar.

Cuddles wears her collar inside and outside at all times, even though she isn't prone to escaping. I'd rather not take my chances. I think she likes her collar, because when I put it back on her she runs right to it.

I don't leave them outside by themselves and I don't see a reason for them to wear harnesses while they are inside. They actually don't ever have collars on, because the oldest has collapsing trachea.

Mine always has her collar on (I don't have an ID for her yet, so only her rabies tag is on her collar). Sometimes I will have her harness on a lot, so its easier to just hook her leash on to go out to potty...she doesn't like putting on her harness but is fine after its on.

Mickey always wears a collar with only rare exceptions. If he would ever escape I want our phone numbers to be handy. Not everyone knows about chips and people often assume a dog without a collar is a stray. Piper is too small for a collar except for dress up.

Susan Lanci and Greenbelts make tiny collars 😊
