Naked as the day she was born
Skye does not wear a collar unless she is leaving the home. She lives on 10 acres of boundried wooded land and wears the ecollar in the yard, she knows not to leave, has great recall. She is microchipped and has a tag ID with my cell number on her travel collar. I don't like to have a collar on her full time as it wears her hair off her neck and being a blue, she doesn't have a thick coat.
Our other furkid is a setter/retriever mix and he wears his collar with the tag embedded on the collar all the time. He has tons of hair. He also wears an ecollar in the yard.
I had that same thing happen to my past Dobes of getting tangled up in their chain choke collars (just got back from a walk,, they never wear those collars any other time). It happened on a Holiday, so it was a $$ vet visit. Both dogs were OK, I did have to give one CPR, the one that was getting chocked by the other one that had his collar twisted around the jaw. Good thing I was in the yard when this happened.
