Five Different Types of Collars to Consider When Buying a Dog Collar

by Eran Konorty Founder of Angel Pet Supplies

When it comes to training, choosing the right dog collar for your new puppy can make a big difference. Stepping into the collar aisle at the pet store can be a little overwhelming with all the options. A standard collar with an ID tag is always recommended for your dog, but is it suitable for training and walking?

Collars For Dogs Are Available In A Variety Of Styles

When it comes to buy dog collars, there are numerous options available. Before deciding on a collar, it's critical to understand the options and primary functions of each. Making the right decision will ensure that your dog receives the support he or she requires, as well as assisting you in training the newest member of your family.

Flat-Buckle Collar

When it comes to dog collars, flat-buckle collars, which are simple collars that buckle or snap closed, are by far the most popular option. They come in a variety of sizes and materials, and they can be very fashionable. Some even have light-reflective strips, which can come in handy when walking your dog late at night. When it comes to securing tags to your dog, a flat-buckle collar is a great option.

Martingale Collar

Dogs with thin necks or small heads should wear these collars. Martingale collars are similar to flat-buckle collars in terms of comfort, but there is a catch. When the collar is pulled tight, a small chain attached to the rings at the ends of the collar is tightened.

Choke Chain/Collar

When the control loop is pulled, the choke collar tightens around the neck. Unfortunately, there is no restriction on how tightly the collar can be pulled. This can damage your dog's throat and other organs. They are not a good substitute for a secure dog collar.

Prong/Pinch Collar

Prong collars function similarly to choke collars, except for the short, blunt metal prongs on the inside of the collar. When the leash is pulled, these prongs should dig into the dog's skin. They are not recommended as a safe alternative because they are easy to abuse.


Remember that the ideal situation is for your dog to be able to walk alongside you without pulling or hissing, thus a flat or best dog leashes should suffice.

There are other dog collars on the market meant to control negative behaviors that should be replaced over time with adequate training. Always seek professional advice before teaching your dog how to politely walk on a dog collar or use any of these tools.
