Those with multiple dogs...

Do you allow them to wear their collars all the time? Ky really wants her pearls on but I don't let them wear anything on their necks unless we're out walking because when they wrestle the first thing they go for is each others collars. I got tired of re-stringing Ky's (faux) pearls.
And when Ky gets a hold of Bentley's collar when they're playing she turns him into an orbiting rocket.

we dont allow collars to be on in the house or outside. my parents border collie got its teeth stuck in their pug/jack russells collar when they were playing one time. it was a horrifying experience... both dogs started to panic and pull away. when cooper pulled it was choking haillie. luckily my dad was in the same room and some how managed to unhook cooper's teeth from haillies collar before there was any damage. scary experience. i wouldnt recommend keep the dogs collars on them, especially during play time.

No collars inside the house, here. It's not necessary. Outside they always wear their collar.

My two NEVER wear collars in the house, I won't take the chance on one of them getting caught on one because they are always playing and messing around.

My two ALWAYS wear their collars. My past dogs also. I have a fear of them somehow getting out and not having them on. In the 12+ years I've had multiple dogs I've never had a problem. I feel what's the point in having them if they get out and they are not on. Tayla is in a crate and her's is outside the crate so when I open the door it immediately goes on.

Hmmm. Never thought about this because it's never been a problem in our house. They've always worn their collars except when bathing. What a scary thought though...

IMHO for the safety of my dogs I don't put collars on them unless I'm taking them for a walk.were they to get out of the house which is very unlikely they are micro- chipped

My guys always wear their collars. Only time it's off is when I'm brushing Max's mane. Like brushing a lion's!!!!

my 3 never have collars on when at home. only when they are going for their walks. when they all wrestle first place they go for is each others necks so for their safety no collars allowed at home.

My two are always naked at home. When we go out is the only time they wear their collars. Too many of my customers had horror stories with their dogs playing with collars on. Won't ever take that chance with my two.
