Re: Head collars

not sure how correct this is but.... i had a vet tell me that any collar that goes around the head or neck can hurt the dog in time, even to the point that it requires surgery at an older age. so i swear by the harness, it also makes it easy to pick up the dog if needed. my dog responds better to th...
