Can French bulldogs wear collars? This is one of the most common questions I get from my clients. Since there are opposite opinions about this topic, I want to help every French bulldog owner to decide when is the right time to buy a collar for this furry gremlin.
We all know that French bulldogs may experience issues with breathing due to their brachycephalic skulls. Their short snouts and soft palates cause them to experience airflow restriction. Therefore, using collars on this breed is not recommended if the puppy hasn’t been taught to walk on the leash obediently. Harnesses are a much better choice since they provide better support to a dog’s body. They keep your Frenchie’s neck and spine in a proper position and prevent it from getting neck injuries.
On the other hand, collars are great picks for pooches that don’t like the confined feeling a harness provides. In many countries, they are even prescribed by law. Anyway, your French bulldog should wear a collar from its early puppyhood, but you shouldn’t hook up a leash on it. A collar may serve as a fancy detail to put your dog’s ID tag on it. Since sometimes we can’t predict certain situations to happen, your little gremlin should always wear a collar with your phone number on it.
Now when we relieved the question ’can French bulldogs wear collars?’, here we come to the most crucial part.
Even though all collars look the same, you should know that not all are equals. They should be made of highly-durable fabrics that will save you from wasting money in the future. Since Frenchies have sensitive skin, it would be best to find the one made of sturdy polyester or non-abrasive nylon. A collar should also be covered with some natural and pleasant material to escape skin irritations.
When determining the size, you should check whether you have enough space to put two fingers between your dog’s neck and collar. To make sure the collar will fit your dog, my advice is to choose the adjustable one. In case your Frenchie is still a growing puppy, having an adjustable collar is even more essential.
Buying choking collars for Frenchies is highly forbidden because these pooches are already prone to experience breathing issues. For training this breed, I recommend using harnesses because they are not only easy to maneuver but also provide your dog with a comfortable feeling.
