Yep, this is why Sienna wears a rolled leather collar, and I keep it loose enough so it rests on her shoulders...below her ruff mostly. She also doesn't wear it in the house. I walk her on a slip collar since the rolled leather one is so loose - it's really just there to hold her tags. I'm a tad jealous of all you owners of short haired dogs who have pretty collar wardrobes.

Huh. I must be blissfully unaware lol because I don't seem to notice any issues with Happy's hair, and she wears a collar 24/7. This guy:

So what do I know.

We, and our breeder (BRT's) uses these:

Unless they're showing or being bathed,
she leaves the collars on her dogs 24/7.
No problems whatsoever.

The collars aren't cheap, but of very high quality -
they will certainly last the life of your dog, and probably your next.

I was leaving a collar on Kris, the Dobe, all the time until I was out fixing my electric fence for the horse. Kris was on the other side of the fence and started squeezing her head through the page wire to reach some horse manure and I thought how easy it would be for her to get her collar hooked up. She only wears a collar now when we are leaving the property.

If your dog must wear a collar, I like the White Pine ones previously mentioned. However, if you're vain like me, and have dogs who are very reliable off leash like me, I would recommend letting them go naked the majority of the time. Especially when at home.

I also walk my dogs on harnesses to minimize fur breakage and cowlicks, and I switch between several different styles depending on my mood and where we're going. I'm quite pleased with Cohen's coat as a result.

I keep collars on mainly out of convenience. We do not have a fenced yard, so we let the dogs out one at a time on a long line, unless we go out to supervise. Thus, it is just easier to have them on.

When we have a fenced yard next year, collars will probably be a thing of the past, except for outings. Lol. But for now, they are what works best.

Thanks for input everybody! I will definitely look into all of the options and fur-saving collars that are provided.

Tucker had this problem so we just stopped putting collars on him. The collar stays attached to his leash.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

This is why Logan only wears a collar when he's working.
