    DefaultNewborn / Young Puppy "Collar Sites'

    My breeder is searching the net for collars for the upcoming litter. She would like to buy 'small collars' and the site she used to use doesn't carry them anymore. Can anyone help me out??
    TIA.

    If they want to do it on the cheap, try dog.com (other side of country supply for horses). They have a lot of different sizes and styles for good prices, and some of them are available in bulk prices. When I had my 2nd litter, they were all black, and I ended up getting all of the different colors I could find to tell them apart. I don't wish that fun time on anyone!

    I use yarn. It breaks easily if it gets caught on anything or if a puppy paw gets in it. Collars don't. I know some breeders who use different colors of child paint on the puppy butts to mark puppies. That didn't work for me as my bitches licked it off.

    I wasn't aware this was for marking the pups, I have seen people use yarn like labby said.

    Cooper had orange yarn when we picked him out. We actually called him orange for the first day.

    You can spot the orange yarn under his collar on this pic from his first day home.



    Sorry to hijack the thread with shameless puppy pics.

    I used paint in the past however they roll around and it gets all over. The last litter I used ric-rac and it worked really well. I opted for that over yard which would seem to work fine too because I could purchase a shorter length of the ric-rac and not a whole ball of yarn in all different colors. I would never use actual collars since they are too tough and they could get hung up on anything but that's just me.

    Jacey was yarnless but all the other pups had yarn to tell them apart... Jacey was yarnless because her breeder thought she was going to keep her and then changed her mind..

    Caleb's breeder used hospital bracelets, and numbered them. If she doesn't want that, JB Wholesale has colored id bands. http://www.jbpet.com/index.php?main_...okdu9f5nbvc0c0
