Can’t Wag Without: Estela and Reggie + Ricky

Estela

Meet Estela, one of our buyers at Muttropolis, and her pups, Regina and Ricky. Reggie is small and sassy, while Ricky is like a big teddy bear. These two are part of our modeling crew and wanted to share a few things they can’t wag without!

Reggie is your quintessential Jack Russell – busy, busy, busy! She loves going on walks, but gets a little too excited and pulls on the leash a lot. Her Buddy Belt not only is comfortable, but it eliminates pressure on Reggie’s tracheal area because of its unique step-in design. Buddy belts are genuine leather, so they are extremely long lasting – Reggie’s had hers for five years! Added bonus: once Reggie’s in the harness, she can’t get out, which is a good thing if she’s feeling feisty!

Reggie

Ricky is a fan of chews, with his favorite being the Braided Bully Stick. These all-natural, long-lasting chews are only made with one ingredient: free-range grass-fed cattle sourced from Brazil. The braided texture makes it perfect for maintaining oral health and encouraging good breath. But always keep an eye on your pups when they are gnawing any chew!  Ricky

Estela often changes Ricky and Reggie's collars, whether it's for product testing or just a new look so extra engravable ID tags are a must-have item. If they ever get out or wander away when traveling, the finder will have all your information and can let you know they have your pup.

Lastly, Reggie and Ricky could absolutely NEVER wag without their Bowsers Beds! Their matching beds have micro-velvet fabric and a high-memory polyester fiberfill inner cushion, making them super comfy and perfect for a good night’s sleep. The dog’s aren’t the only ones that love these beds – Estela loves these beds because washing them is a breeze – the cover unzips and can be either hand-washed or thrown in the washing machine!

The Pursuit for the Perfect Dog Collar

Shopping for Dog CollarsWhether your four-legged family member is a fashionista or an avid outdoor explorer, moves at a slow pace or constantly pulls on the reigns, we have just the right dog collar to meet their needs. Looking for a new dog collar can be confusing, especially with such a plethora of different sizes, styles, materials and more to choose from! This is why we’ve compiled some tips to help guide you towards the right collar. To get started, we like to consider a few features including size, durability, safety and ability to clean.

~~~

SIZE

Unfortunately there is not a set of standard sizes for pets like there are for humans, so it’s very important to always look closely at the sizing for each collar you are considering. For the ideal fit, you will want to allow for one to three fingers to fit between the collar and your dog’s neck, depending on your dog’s size.So, when you measure your pup’s neck, Dog Collar Sizingbe sure to place the appropriate number of fingers underneath the measuring tape to find the true size.Below is a breakdown of how many fingers we advise according the size of the dog.

Small Size Dog (20 pounds or less) – 1 finger’s width
Medium / Average Sized Dog – 2 finger’s width
Extra Large Dog – 3 finger’s width

 

DURABILITY

Soft Italian Leather Dog CollarDurability comes from both the fabric used to construct a collar as well as the closure. Quality nylon webbing is a sure bet when it comes to strength and durability! But leather collars can also provide the strength your pup needs, and quality leather softens with wear for a very comfortable fit. One thing to watch out for if you choose leather is potential wear around the buckle, so stay mindful of that.

Most nylon collars have plastic buckle closures. If you are purchasing your pup’s new collar in a store, be sure to open and close the buckle a few times and give the collar a good tug when closed to ensure it doesn’t pop open with force. If you choose a collar that has a traditional metal buckle and loops, you don’t have to worry about the risk of the collar popping open per say, but make sure that the hardware is quality and solidly secured on the collar.

SAFETY

Safety correlates quite a bit with durability, so be sure to cross-check the quality of the material and closures, but there are a few other things to be mindful of as well. Many pups need collars specific to training. These collars are often referred to as “slip,” “choke” or “martingale” collars, and are made with mostly leather or nylon with additional nylon or a chain link. This design is used to reduce tugging with a swift, clean correction. We don’t recommend using training collars everyday, just went necessary or until the behavior is corrected.

   Martingale Training Dog Collars

Another safety concern that many small dog owners face is pressure on a pup’s neck. For smaller breeds, placing pressure on the neck, specifically the tracheal area, can cause coughing, gagging or choking. Harnesses are a great option for pups that have trouble with pulling, as they control the dog without placing pressure on their neck or back, but instead around the chest and breastbone.

It’s important to also be mindful of visibility when it is dark out. Check out our Night Safety Tips to learn the importance of outfitting your pups in the appropriate gear to ensure they are seen when it is dark out. We carry a collection of lighted and reflective collars to help keep your pup safe.

 

CLEANING Ruffwear Waterproof and Reflective Dog Collar

Is your pup extra active, often getting messy or playing in the water? If so, then a waterproof collar might be the perfect solution. Specially made to not absorb moisture, retain dirt and harbor bacteria, waterproof collars generally stay clean as is. And if your pup does manage to get them dirty, all you need to do is rinse the collar under warm water.

For those pups that aren’t quite as active or messy, but still need their collar to be freshened up from time to time, there are many nylon and fabric collar options that are easy to hand wash, or are machine washable. But pay special attention to the instructions on each collar, as many cannot be machine dried.
