How To Properly Put On A Snap-Around Collar On Your Dog
The following are three steps to place a snap-around collar on your dog.
1. Start with you and your dog facing each other. Take the clasp in your left hand and the two rings in your right hand.
2. Place the collar under your dog's neck and bring the ends up to the top of his neck, directly behind the ears. When you begin to put on the collar, the dog flexes his neck muscles, expanding the circumference of the neck and creating the impression that the collar is much tighter than it actually is (similar to the effect produced by a horse taking in air as it is being saddled).
3. Attach the clasp to the floating ring. The smooth side of the clasp should be next to the dog's skin.
You may get the
impression that the collar is much too tight and that you can barely
get it around your dog’s neck. It is recommended that you wait for
about five minutes after the first time you put the collar on. After
the dog has relaxed, you can then test for correct snugness. You should
be able to easily slip two fingers between the collar and your dog's
neck. Use one finger if you have a toy dog. If you cannot, the collar
is too tight. On the other hand, if you can get three or more fingers
through, the collar is too loose.
