The safety of our dogs is always top of mind whenever we buy them a new collar, harness or leash. We go to great lengths to make sure that the clips and buckles are secure and that their ID tags are up to date, just in case the unthinkable happens and they go missing, but how many of us wonder if that brand new shiny collar could harm them?
As dog owners ourselves, we must admit to not having ever considered that possibility, until that is a customer came into the store looking for a Breakaway Collar. At first we assumed she was looking for a collar for her cat. She soon enlightened us, telling us a harrowing story of how she had dropped off her dog at daycare, only to learn several hours later that she had sadly passed away following an incident where her pet's collar had become entangled in a shrub during playtime.
After losing a pet so suddenly, she felt compelled to get the message out to pet owners everywhere that, no matter how safe they believed their pet's collar to be, this outcome was actually not such a rare occurrence, and it might be a good idea to think about eliminating the risk with a breakaway collar. Now, with a new puppy in tow, she was searching desperately for a collar for her dog that would offer her peace of mind.
PetSafe are acutely aware of this problem when it comes to collars, and their KeepSafe Breakaway dog Collars are designed to prevent needless strangulation or injury. You might thinking that this "would never happen to my dog", but did you know that these types of events occur most often at playtime, when dogs collars get caught on fences, decks, crates, kennels, heating and cooling vents, or on branches or shrubs - certainly areas our dogs frequent on a daily basis.
PetSafe's collars are currently available in Black, Red and Blue, in the following sizes:
|Medium||3/4" or 1"||14"-20"|
After hearing how our customer suffered after losing her beloved pet, we hope that pet owners will consider a Breakaway Collar for their pet, especially for those attending daycare.
