Well, the big plan to win a Paco collar didn't pan out, so apparently I need to actually shop. Gusto's been having an issue with his collar/s rubbing under his neck. He's not raw or sore or anything, but there's a lot of pink skin showing through not a lot of white hair. I thought at first it was because I wasn't being good about taking his collar off when it was wet after swimming, but I've been doing that. I thought maybe a lighter/softer collar would help. I got him a Spiffy Dog mesh one, still not helping. I *think* this issue is that it is the area where collars 'fold' over and the dee rings attach. The inside of the collar therefore isn't smooth there. It doesn't seem to be bothering him, but it bothers me. Any brilliant thoughts about styles/brands that might work better than others? I've had my eyes on a certain leather collar for a while, but as they are custom made, I can't get my hands on one to really get a feel for it. Whatever it is MUST come in small dog widths (nothing over 3/4"). I'm fine with leather/fabric whatever. Obviously it needs to be decently made, but he's not an 80 lb dog, so it doesn't need to be strong enough to hold an ox. I'm not going to say price is no object, but he's full-grown now, so I'm willign to spend a bit on something that will last a while.
