    Fact Check: do cats prefer particular names?

    by Darina Schweizer


The bigger your cat or dog is, the wider and bigger the collar should be. Narrow collars are again good for small cats and dogs. As a rule, two fingers should fit between your pet's neck and the collar. Among the collars there are several types and varieties. They differ in the materials used, colors and functions.
The educational collar helps you to educate your four-legged friend. On the collar itself is a small device which triggers either a sound signal or a spray and thus serves as training support. With the hand transmitter you can activate the respective signals to the collar. Bad behaviors of your dog can be changed and at the same time the basic obedience is trained. Light-up collars provide additional protection for you and your pet in the evening. If you are on the road with your dog in the evening, for example, other road users can better recognize your four-legged friend and you through the reflectors or the glow on the collar. Thus, the safety for you and your companion increases.
In addition to the collars, there is alternatively the dog harness. The typical dog harness consists of a belly strap and two chest straps. The harnesses use materials such as leather, nylon, fleece or neoprene. Depending on the purpose, there are harnesses for tracking, protection, hunting, rescue and guide dog use. The advantage of the harness compared to the collar is that when pulling the leash, the weight is not centered on the neck vertebrae, but is distributed more on the chest and abdomen in this case.
