Why Every Dog Needs A High-Quality Collar

Why Every Dog Needs A High-Quality Collar

A good dog collar is more than just a fashion accessory and choosing one that’s made of high-quality materials is important for your dog’s comfort, safety, and ultimately, happiness. Having the right collar can help your furry friend enjoy walks for longer periods, be seen easier at night, and can even prevent neck injuries. It’s also an investment. Picking a collar that’s sourced responsibly and made to last means you won’t have to replace it time and time again.

Preventing Neck Injuries

A poorly fitting collar can lead to neck injuries for your dog if they have a tendency to pull when you’re out walking. A bad fit is more common in cheap or badly designed collars and at EzyDog we always recommend doing your research before purchasing. Our range of collars distribute pressure evenly across your dog's neck, reducing the risk of strain or injury during walks. Our top tip is to properly measure before committing to a collar using the two-finger rule - the collar should allow for a two-finger gap between the collar and your dog’s neck. This gives you a fit that’s not too tight to cause unnecessary pressure, and not too loose that your dog could slip out. If you’re unsure at all, all our team are experienced in fitting collars and would be happy to help!

Safety & Identification

As well keeping your dog comfortable and injury-free, a reliable dog collar can play an important role in identification and safety, particularly at night. We have all heard stories of someone’s dog sneaking out of the house at night or getting lost during a hike which can be a scary experience for owners. A good dog collar will allow you to attach visible identification tags that can significantly increase the likelihood of a safe reunion with your dog. EzyDog collars feature sturdy D-rings for securely attaching ID tags and contact information so if someone finds your dog, they can get them back to you safely.

We also work reflective stitching into most of our designs to improve visibility in low-light conditions.

Which Collar Is The Right Choice For My Dog?

When it comes to choosing the right collar for your furry friend, there’s plenty of things you need to consider. How much support does your dog need? If they need more, something like our Neo Wide might be more suitable. Does your dog have sensitive fur/skin? They might need a softer collar like our Soft Touch. Do they tend to chew their stuff? If so, something from our Oxford Leather range might be more suitable. It may even come down to whether or not your dog would consider being seen in public wearing pink – we know how much a collar is a reflection of your dog’s personality. Taking all of this into account can sometimes feel daunting and you might feel the market has too much choice. Fret not, here at EzyDog we have a collar for every strong Staffordshire Terrier, for every gentle Poodle, and for every playful labrador.
