Harvey came to us to with a collar that we changed to a bigger one as he grew out of it quite quickly. But then he started to develop a rash under the collar (especially under the neck where there is lots of skin) and the vet told us to not have him wear one in the house. At the end we just switched to a harness cause we were told it's easier on the neck as well. He does pull a little more when on the harness than with the collar but it's better than the rash he gets if we use the collar too often!

We decided to go naked in the house. I got her a travel harness for the car and I do find I prefer her on the harness to collar, because I don't worry about pulling on her neck. She does need a little gentle encouragement from time to time to keep walking. She came with a collar, but I think we'll just use the harness, most likely.

I use to always keep collars on all mine - until this batch I have - I've found both Rickie & Page get theirs stuck in their mouth when I wasn't looking so I removed them. We're like Worm - they are kept under lock and key - I also have a chip in Page & Mabel - Lucy and Rickie are old enough they'll not run away - but the other two being puppies - I don't trust them in the time it takes me to blink.
