Hey, just a fun poll to see how many people let their dogs run around "naked" at home and why or why not :biggrin:
A few months ago we had to take Zio to the vet because his neck was looking bad in some areas. Turns out that because of the skin folds there, the collar was rubbing the fur off. Esp after he was wet. So now we don't have a collar on him around the house. However, he ALWAYS has a collar (with ID on it) whenever he's in the yard or out of the house training, for walks, etc.Mine are naked in the house. They do not run out the door, so that's some security and they are also chipped.
The collars kink their fur and just seem uncomfortable. They aren't used to wearing them for long periods so they'll scratch at their necks if I leave them on.
