Whether you’ve been a dog parent for a while, or are new to the life of pet ownership, you always want the best for your furry friend.
Being a pet owner is a responsibility. Even choosing a dog collar can affect your dog’s health and happiness, which is why it’s important to make every decision with care.
Dog collars are an essential item that need to go on your pet shopping list.
In addition to making a personal statement, it’s one of the things that guarantee the safety of your dog.
This is why we created our collection of black and gold dog collars; so you can have something that’s both functional, and looks good on your four-legged pal.
If you’re on the market for a new collar, we’ve got you covered.
Give your dog a strong identity
Giving your pet unique identification is one of your first priorities as a new dog owner. Not having a collar or a tag means your dog may be difficult to find if they run off, and that’s something none of us want.
As time goes on, it’s also necessary to replace this collar—especially since it may wear out after a few years or become too small as your dog grows.
Collars are the easiest way to tell everyone where your dog is from, and the fastest way for anyone to bring your lost dog back home to you.
With a black and gold Pittsburgh collar, you can take this a step further. Our Pittsburgh collar not only gives your dog an identity, but tells everyone where your beloved pet is from.
Know your dog’s breed
Your city roots are important to you, and your pet’s roots are just as important when buying them a collar. Know their breed before you head off to the store in search of an identification collar.
This is because dog collars aren’t one-size-fits-all, and different sizes and fur types have different collar requirements.
To prevent discomfort and fur loss, you have to pick the right type of collar. More active breeds—like huskies and retrievers for example—can damage their collar more than smaller breeds.
You also need to consider the materials you’re choosing when you shop. Our black and gold dog collars are made of nylon and polyester. The nylon webbing comes with tight-knit stitching, which means it can endure some extra strain without unraveling.
The right-sized collar is the best collar
We know the importance of getting the right-sized collar.
That’s why when you step into our clothing store in Pittsburgh, you can find collars in three different sizes—small at 9″-11″; medium at 12″-17″ and large at 18″-32″—so there’s a size for every furry friend.
Make sure you take the time to measure your dog carefully and get a collar that keeps them safe and comfortable.
A loose-fitting collar might make it difficult to handle your pet, and make them easier to lose. If your dog is in the training stage, a loose collar might even make things harder for you.
Choosing a collar that’s too tight won’t do either. Your pet will be uncomfortable and it may even result in rashes, bruises, and fur loss.
The easiest way to know if your dog’s collar is the perfect fit is if you can fit two fingers under your dog’s collar once they have it on.
