They aren't specifically allowed or banned. It is up to the individual judge but I've never seen a judge not allow one. As long as the leash can be disconnected from the collar, they are usually ok. That being said, I'd always pack a back up collar just in case.

Hee, hee! Actually, I pack about three or four collars--his choke, a couple of buckles and I always have his pinch with me just in case!!! So, it is a good idea to have some extra collars of different types. No, the pinch is not allowed at AKC events but sometimes on the way home we stop to work or something.

Thanks. With Mick having had laryngeal paralysis, there is no way in h-e-double tooth picks I want to put a slip collar on Caleb. Thanks for suggesting an spare collar in the bag. I usually pack an extra flat one when we go away, just in case the every day one breaks.
The last trainer I worked with who did our girls' CGC didn't care about the collar. If fact, the guy who did our boy's CGC back in 2002 didn't care either. I think Hud wore his prong and the girls had a choke collar on.
I wonder if anyone else came across evaluators who didn't care about the collars either...
