Collars for Pups
Where do you buy your collars for identifying your puppies at a reasonable price?

My breeder used different colors of yarn.

Our litter of 9 are 4 1/2 weeks old now. We have three solid black females that all look the same and two black and tan males that are very similar. I want to collar them to better keep track of who is who...but i don't want to break the bank and locally you can only buy the basic colors. So i was just curious if anyone had any better ideas. I googled some options but wasn't happy with what i found.

Paint their toe nails; different colors. Bill

Ric Rac or yarn are both insanely low-cost. It will not break the bank to go to Walmart and buy a few small balls of yarn.

My breeder used ribbon, torn up fabric or scarves and yarn. All different colours.

I've considered the nails, but they have black nails and painting them would be hard due to their dark color...that and it doesn't last long at all. I'm guilty of painting my sister's Shih Tuz's nails before. lol.

I have a ton of yarn here at home (i like to crochet!) but the puppies are chewing on everything in sight! They destroyed a few heavy duty zip ties in not time at all.

So i figured some nylon collars might be best. It's not that i can't afford to buy them each a collar, i just rather not spend $8 a collar for them if i could possibly find some that where cheaper online.

Everyone's suggestions are very appreciated!

Try white paint; do right front; left front : back; l and r; two nails; all nails.When Polish wears off do again; good luck have a healthy litter.Happy New Year! Bill
