Hi, I have been reading your posts on collars & harnesses.

Do any of you just use a normal nylon collar? Am not sure what I should be using for the best on my 15 week old puppy.

Thanks

I have a collar for holly since she was a pup. Only for her id tag though. Got an extra small Puppia for her, for the first few months. wouldn't recommend a collar for walks.

Chester is nearly 16 weeks. I weighed him last night & he is 9lbs. Do you think he would need a small still? Can you adjust the Puppias?

I have always used collars, with no problem. I have , however, recently bought a harness for Teddy, which I use when walking all four dogs, as Teddy sometimes lurches and spins. He's no problem at all on a collar when by himself or with one other dog.

I have a similar question, sorry to steal this but the answer might also help Clair.

I just got a 6-8" collar to be used only for quick in/out while house breaking starting at 8 wks. Is this going to be too small? As long as it fits a mth or so, I dont mind getting another later.

Also for puppy classes starting at 12 wks - 18wks can anyone guess a good puppia size and will they will let me use this type of harness in classes?
