Yep, mine never wear collars, either. Plus I don't like the flattened fur around the neck from having the collars on. We do have invisible fence so those are on when they go out. So, they do play with collars on outside.

We are in our fourth decade of having dogs - and everyone of them has always had a collar on, except for baths or surgeries. We have never had an issue with any of the various collars either.
My dogs and cats are also chipped.

Nope, free as a bird in the house. The collar is on only when outside.

Mine have their collars off inside as well, I don't want to risk them getting tangled with each other or with anything else. I've heard too many scary stories.

Mine always have collars on because I'm concerned if they ever get loose with no collar people seem to be less willing to get involved if they don't see a collar.
BUT, I am concerned about a strangulation issue, so I compromised and got a break away collar.

No collars, only when showing or training. I have 6 acres, my house is in the middle, the pasture is around each side and has a no climb horse fence so they are semi enclosed and we don't ever let them out of our site. They are microchipped but I just hate the ring around their neck from their collars.....

At one point I had four dogs in the house, they all wore their collars all the time, except for baths or surgery. I have never had a problem..The new pup will be micro chipped, but I'm not sure I want to try and put a collar on her in the middle of the night to take her out, so may leave it on at first...we shall see!

I have seen client's dogs get their teeth caught on collars. I remember one dog who broke her jaw that way. Another client, whose dogs got in tangled then started to fight because one was suffocating.

Thanks for all of the replies. Very scary indeed! My dogs will remain nekked unless we leave the yard.

If you're planning to crate train, I wouldn't leave the collar on her while she's in her crate...too much of a risk. You could always use a slip lead. They're easy to take on and off and you don't have to mess with a collar when you take her out.
