Take It Off: Take It All Off

Dogs love to wrestle. When your dog finds a great play mate where they grab each others neck, wrestling like the best of them, please keep it safe. Remove their collars! It is very easy for them to get caught in the collar. This is all too common and dogs have strangled each other by panicking while trying to get loose. The more they try, the tighter the collar becomes causing strangulation.

Safe play means that you are supervising well mannered dogs who are a good match. Know the body language of stressed dogs and intervene when necessary and only when necessary. For the most part, dogs learn to play fair if they’ve been well socialized and will not intentionally hurt one another. Make sure that you are in a safe place for them to play off leash and collar free and let them have at it.

Fun and safe…. couldn’t be better.
