What is the best type collar for an adult Golden? I was reading a dog mystery novel (Susan Conant) and she talked about a rolled leather being the best type for dogs with heavy undercoats (in the books she has Malamutes). Our Subiaco had a rolled leather collar most of his life. You could hardly see it except where the buckle and tags were and it was flat there. Never any flat fur etc. He had that same collar for probably 19 years. So what do you think about taking advice from a novel? Our new 4 month old has a pretend leather wide buckle collar for now and a gentle leader for walks.
