Re: Yarn, Rick Rack, ID Bands?

We use little adjustable nylon collars. The smallest ones get small enough to fit newborns, then they're easy to adjust in size as the pups grow. Once the pups reach 4 weeks old or so and have maxed out the small collar we switch to a larger adjustable nylon collar of the same color.

We've used rick-rack in the past, but having now used the collars for the last several litters I can say I like them a whole lot better.

I use the ID bands. They are inexpensive and have worked really well for my 4 litters. Then they get real collars as they out grow those.

We have always used rick rack. A Keeshound breeder I know uses magic marker to number the puppies.

Re: Yarn, Rick Rack, ID Bands?

I buy the nylon adjustable collars but do not put them on until the pups are a week old. For the first week I am weighing twice a day and use rick rack. I check it every time I weigh them and replace it often.
