Bringing a new puppy in your home to start a great life is such an exciting and beautiful time. Like many new dog owners, you may bring your puppy home from as young an age as 8 weeks old. By this stage your puppy should have had its first set of vaccinations but will not be allowed out for walks in public until after the second set of vaccinations. This can be a 4-6 week period and many owners don’t think about getting their first puppy collar and lead until they can go outside. We strongly recommend you buy a puppy collar and lead before you even pick your puppy up so you have one to put on him/her from day one.
It is essential to get your puppy used to wearing a collar as soon as possible and understanding the concept of a lead! Simply wearing a puppy collar around the house is the perfect way to get your puppy comfortable with these new feelings.
When shopping for a puppy collar and lead you should look out for a few things. Firstly, make sure they are adjustable! Puppies grow like weeds so you want to find a collar that can adjust a fair amount to give you a good 4-6 months of use before needing to buy a big dog collar! Next, you should decide whether a fabric or a leather collar and lead is more suitable for you and your puppy. Finally, you need to bare in mind that puppies will be puppies and it is highly likely that the collar and lead will see a lot of wear and tear and maybe some chew marks too so think carefully about how much you want to spend on a collar that might not last very long if left unattended!
