Default Dog your dogs wear collars 24/7

Like the title says. Teags and Pan wear collars when we are outside the house and yard, but in the house they never wear collars. Mainly because I am paranoid they will get the collar stuck on something and choke themselves when I am not home.

No, he only wears his collars when he wears his leash. So basically potty breaks, walks, and other outings.


Max wore his 24/7 and Tucker did too for a while. But the collars often rubbed the hair off his neck, irritated his throat, or at least wrecked the hair around his neck making it look yucky. Since he doesn't door dart I decided he didn't need it in the house.

Yeah, Wesley wears his all the time. It's very loose and all he does is sleep when he's alone so...no real choking hazard. Might have to re-assess when the new puppy gets big enough that they're left together.

I put collars on mine for their first walk of the day (they generally run out for a quick pee/poop break right after waking up without collars or leashes), and then take them off when we are in for the night. So they wear them maybe 12 hours a day.

Simi wears a collar 100% of the time, two when we go outside/walks/etc.. Psyche only wears a collar when she's going somewhere.

Rosey did. While she wouldn't door dash, I wanted information on her all the time (I'm not comfortable microchipping, so it's not something I wanted to do), as a just in case.

Her collar was always super loose, and there's really nothing it could have got caught on since the house is ferret-proof, so I didn't have a problem with it.

This. I put a collar on him in the AM when we wake up and leave it on until after dinner time if we're in for the night.

My dogs wear collars 24/7. In the house, when they're sleeping, out and about, all the time. I've never had any problems with them wearing collars. I have learned that Bayleigh needs hers tight or she'll chew it off. I'm just paranoid that if they don't have a collar and ID on, that they'll get loose and be gone. I see so many dogs in the newspaper that are lost without collars because they just got a bath or something. Also, if there happens to be a fight, I can easily grab their collars.

Yes mine do these days. I will be honest it's because I am forgetful and would pull up to training or the park or the store and would go to clip their leashes on only to realize....collar is at home. Whoops

Yes and no..... There's no real consistency lol.

Tend to be no in the house, unless the back door is open to the yard.
