i was in the mall last night when i had stopped for the first time in the pet shoppe..i was looking for a strap for my daughter's puppy and was debating on buying the strap for the neck or for the back/body strap...and ended buying the body/back strap..which was of course the advice of the salesperson i chatted with ...i guess its more comfortable on the part of the dog(powdee)..what about you guys.. what type of strap did you use for your pet dogs..?

I prefer the back/body strap specially for small to medium dogs and puppies. It seems to me more comfortable as you point out. As they mature and if they're we teacj tje,. dpgs learn not to pull on the leash and to walk beside us, and the it doesn't really matter which kind. I had a body strap for my dog sheba. She was a medium sized dog, that loved to pull the leash even as a mature dog. Tazz on the other hand seems to enjoy the neck strap better, but he always got used to walk beside me and rarely pulls.

oops sorry for whatever I was trying to write in the middle of my post. I think I meant as they mature and if we teach them.. but something happened while I was typing LOL But yes, tazz never liked the body strap and was never able to get used to it. Sheba on the other hand loved it :)

I have at present no pets in my house, but some 20 years ago, we had two dogs, one is of Alsatian and other the Poodle one, we never used to chain them, while inside, but while i take for a walk, i used the collar type of strap, close to the neck,both of these were very shrewd ones. Of course, i miss them now.

When I brought a puppy for my son some few months ago, I bought a body strap for it. It is more comfortable for the dog than the neck strap. We had the puppy for only 2 months. After that, the dog just disappeared. KEEP SMILING = NEIL

Hi, For all my five dogs, I use collars that have the snap closure around the neck. About the only use the collar is is to hold their license and name tags. They don't usually have a leash for walking on them because they have a big back yard to romp in so I don't take them on walks. They only are put on a leash if I take them to the groomer or vet. What breed of puppy does your daughter have? It depends on the breed too and their neck. Sometimes they do need the body strap because of the way the neck is. Have a good evening, Char :-)
