Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

My best friend lost his female lab because his male GSD got his tooth caught in her collar when nobody was home. He strangled her and then had to carry her around for who knows how long until someone came home. I don't leave collars on in the house and I never leave two dogs together when nobody's home. Ever.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

Otto got stuck in Morgan's collar last winter (before I loosened it so it comes right off if he grabs it) He was screaming and she was pinning him down trying to get his teeth off, I ran at them thinking 'Oh she's finally snapped and she's going to kill that puppy!'

He always tries to grab her collar, she and I both correct him but he still does it.

I'd take her collar OFF but she'd follow me around with it until I put it back on. Rescues, what are you gonna do, it means a lot to her.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

Stark and Senna rough house ALL the time. For this reason, collars come off once they enter the house.

It makes me nervous to think of them getting caught somewhere.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

SO SO glad you were there and could help!!

Accidents like this happen so much more than people realize. It happened to my two- playing and Sasha got caught in Penny's collar. Someone was home and able to assist but Penny's eyes almost got squeezed out of her head! It was really scary!



So yes never leave the collars on, but if you insist that they wear one buy a breakaway collar- they break apart if hung up on something. And microchip- better than a collar anyways.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

OH MY gosh, your poor Penny, look at that scar! Is that permenant? How scarey.

I have had dogs my whole life and nothing ever happened with collars but I never had two big dogs at the same time like I do now.

They always are rough housing and grabbing each others necks.
They are right back at it today and now WITHOUT collars on. Looks better too with no collar. They both are micro chipped.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

Thank goodness everyone is ok! I showed this to Philip last night. He used to think I was crazy for insisting the dogs don't wear their collars in the house. I'd try to tell him if they were playing and got stuck and we weren't home... etc etc etc...Of course that was before we lost Magnum. He finally believes me now and won't fight me on it, or leave collars on Mya or any other we adopt in the future.

and Magnum*Marley Ain't Got NUttin on Me* RIP sweet, darling boy, gone too soon, always in our hearts.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

I am really glad she is better, my Dh was not aware of the danger either and I showed him my bruise on my hand from trying to free his teeth. Well I learned a valuable lesson.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

Thanks for posting this, because it made me realize I need to be careful when Bianca plays with her friend Calvin... Today they were at the park and I think Bianca's tooth got stuck on Calvin's collar for a second when she went to play-bite him. Calvin also chews on and play-bites Bianca's neck a lot so he could possibly get caught as well.
Although, I'm not sure what I can do about that since Calvin is not my dog and we can't really let the dogs play collarless in the city park... I guess I can put Bianca's breakaway collar on and maybe ask Calvin's owner if she can put his harness on instead of his collar when they play.

Re: Bo and Bella got stuck

I've had dogs for 30 years and just had the first bizarre collar accident a couple nights ago. Coco sleeps near the window in my bedroom, her collar got caught on an iron plant stand that held a VERY large, VERY heavy plant in clay pot. I woke up to the crash. Plant down, pot broken into many pieces, and Coco still attached to the plant's stand was clanging all around the room tripping and slipping and in a total panic. Thank God I was home to assist. I removed the stand from her neck & luckily the enormous plant didn't harm her when it fell.
My dogs have always worn collars and even after this incident, it didn't occur to me to remove the collar indoors! I never imagined such a weird accident could happen. I'm going to get breakaways. Thanks for this caution.
