By far the most common collar is the fascinating chew proof dog collar that fastens with a plastic clip or a buckle. These collars are the most convenient to slip on and off and are handy because they can hold your dog's identification, rabies, and license tags. Even though this type of collar retains its size, the collar can become a hazard. Dogs playing roughly and in a mouthy manner can get their mouth caught in the collar of another dog, causing panic in one or both dogs. As they struggle to get loose, the collar can tighten and dogs have suffocated as a result of this type of play. Dogs who are the object of this type of rough play should wear break-away collars, similar to the break-away collars in cats, at least during play and unsupervised times. Some owners opt to avoid collars or any gear at all unless they are taking their dog on a walk. Although this in an option, I prefer to have visible identification on my dog at all times and a collar with its tags is the most convenient way to do this.
Another fact about the fascinating chew proof dog collar is that most people use them ineffectively because they are not that easy to use and there are some secrets that the old time professionals used to make them more effective and the correction stronger. First, these professionals make sure the length is right or you won't get the strong, quick pop. If the chain’s too long, when you go to give a correction, there’s too much slack. When it's too short, the collar tightens too quickly, before you’ve gained enough momentum in the jerk. Seasoned trainers also know that dog's feel the correction more if you can keep the fascinating chew proof dog collar up high, right behind the ears. That’s how Cesar Milan’s Illusion collar works. It keeps the collar positioned so that a correction can have the greatest effect (e.g. create the most effective jerk). Back when I was competing in obedience we didn't have Illusion collars and they wouldn't be allowed in the ring now anyway, but we did try to keep that fascinating chew proof dog collar up high when we were training. A third point, but one that’s the first thing a seasoned professional trains is that the fascinating chew proof dog collar has to go on the right way. It needs to form a “P,” with the tail of the “P” on the same side as the handler. You can tell right away when a force-based trainer isn't good at his fascinating chew proof dog collar technique because he doesn't even put the collar on correctly.
