Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

Thank goodness you were there and able to free them from being stuck. My dogs never wear collars at home for just this reason, I have heard to many horror stories.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

I am going to remove the collars, I never thought that would happen, but your right what if no one was home or my daughter alone with them. That is why I told my story incase someone else like me does not know.

I'm so glad you were there to help them! Poor pups. I try to take Denali's collar off whenever possible.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

First I'm thankful you were around to help them. We've had similar threads before about the dangers of collars. The only time the Hooligans are allowed to wear one is when they're on a lead.

A friend of my just lost her husky pup from a collar incident like this, I am so glad your two are okay, mine only wear them when we are out walking other than that they are off. Glad to hear your guys are okay!

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

I have first hand knowledge of the dangers of 2 dogs rough housing with collars on. I had to call 911 to have them come cut collars off of Reno and Tessa. Tessa had grabbed Reno's collar and got herself twisted so the collar was around her bottom jaw and everytime she moved it tightened on Reno's neck. I wasn't able to untwist it because it was so tight and I couldn't hold her still and cut at the same time. This all happened in the span of about 30 seconds when I turned my back to change my shoes so I could take them out for a run. Luckily, I lived about 2 minutes from the fire station.

Tessa's jaw was sore from the collar twisting on it and Reno's neck was sore but thankfully that was the worst of it.

It was very very scary. Lesson learned.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

I am so glad and lucky they are fine, considering the above stories. They had on the flat collars, so I am surprised he got stuck. He is such a scardy cat, you should of heard him crying. He was pulling really hard to poor Bella.

The only one who got hurt was me, and I don't how must have been my hurry to free them.

I have painful lump on my wrist, like swollen, I better go take an aspirin in case it is a blood clot.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

Glad it wasn't worse and thanks for the reminder. Lainey and Booker wear collars and I forget this can happen. Booker has to wear a collar, it is one of his quirks. I distract them when they start grabbing each other neck-wise because I just don't like it.
Throwing a toy usually does it.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

Until I finish repairs to my fence, mine have to wear their collars. Once the fence is dog proofed again, their collars will be off when at home too.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

my dog never has his collar on at home. he never has his leash on when in the car. we went out for dinner the other night and we took our dog. it started to rain heavy so we had to leave him in the car. i took his collar off while we weren't with him. yes, i could see the car the entire time we were in the restrarunt.
