Dog Collar Safety

Folks, it is with a heavy heart I present this warning to you. I received this email this morning from a Monday night student of mine. With permission I will post what was told to me.


"We regret to inform you that our Boomer passed away :'(. We found him dead in our back yard. He apparently tried to jump the fence, and hung himself by his collar. We won't be returning to training with him. We may bring our Sydney for a refresher course at some other time.
Thank you,
Janelle Dearman


Please know this can happen to your dog if a collar is left on your dog unattended. I know we have to have name tags etc by law. I recommend the micro chip is a safe alternative to the old dangle collar for identification purposes.


I never leave a collar on my dogs! I only put one on when I am walking them somewhere, bring them to the vet, class etc.. It only takes a moment to put the collar on. Half the time it takes for your dog to choke to death from the collar hanging up on something like a fence, under the car seat.


RIP Boomer, all of us dog lovers shall see you at the Rainbow bridge one day.

"Dr. Brother Hackett, our vet., recommended Larry to us to get Bubs, our 8 year old snauzer, to behave. Larry came to our home once weekly for 4 weeks & Bubs is a new dog. Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks?"
