    Defaultquestion due to 'Scary-Long' thread...

    not wanting to hijack, i have a question from this...

    My boy is going to boarding this week, and he is outside in a daycare all day, then also boarded at night. They keep collars on for several days through all this. are there recommendations for this situation?

    Personally, I'd ask that they be removed during daycare at the least...

    I think it depends. At a lot of places, dogs need to be collared at all times for insurance purposes. You could ask, though.

    I would ask them I can see why they would want to leave them on so they can get ahold of a specific dog if they get to rowdy and they don't mix dogs up. If there is someone watching them at all times it might be ok but it's still kind of worrysome.

    I think it depends very much on the situation.

    If in daycare, they're running loose and playing, how would stranger care trakers tell one BM Lab from another if both are 5 years old, 80 lbs and bench line?

    I think in some situations, it could be like in a hospital where you wear a wrist ID so they can tell who gets what meds and treatment.

    If a collar is necessary, just make sure that it can be easily "broken away" by a human ... a chain collar (obviously) presents a problem ... and I would think a flat buckle might be tricky to navigate during a chaotic circumstance.
