Collar Safety Tips

A terrible, terrible incident happened at a grooming salon in Georgia. Jesse, an adorable Miniature Schnauzer died by strangulation. You can read his story here: Schnauzer Dies at Grooming Salon.

KeepSafe Break-Away Collar The KeepSafe Break-Away Collar is the only collar that has a patented safety buckle that is designed to protect dogs from collar accidents AND it can be used securely with a leash. This collar protects the dog from strangulation. If a dog becomes entangled with an object or even with another dog, the buckle releases to set the dog free.

Check out this great collar that could save your dog's life!

Other Collar Safety tips:

  • Never restrain your dog by his collar and leash on any raised area; be it a deck, table, balcony, bed of truck, etc..
  • Remove your pet's collar while playing with another animal in the privacy of your fenced in backyard. Dogs at play can easily become entangled causing them harm or death by strangulation.
  • Check your dog's collar regularly for proper fit.
  • Remove your dog's collar and ID tags when he's crated.
  • Consider using a harness.

Although we always preach to be sure your Schnauzer is wearing his collar and ID tags, it is important to pay close attention to these warnings and safety tips!
