Plain and simple. Your dog’s collar smells as bad as the poop you’re forced to pick up on your daily walks and it’s time you admit it to yourself. You’ve tried washing it, febreezing (you didn’t know it was a verb, did you?), and scrubbing it with Lysol but nevertheless, the stench persists. Let it be known that you are not alone. Dogs are gross!

If your dog’s collar is constantly falling off, it’s more than likely for one or two reasons. Either your dog needs to audition to be the next Houdini or their collar is broken. Either way, your dog needs a new collar. Remember, your dog’s collar should fit snug around their necks. You should be able to place your fingers behind it comfortably, not your whole hand.

Take a look at your dog. If he is still wearing a Christmas collar than he needs a new collar as of yesterday. We hate to break it to you, but the fancy red and green combo is only in for exactly one month and your time is up. It’s time to move on to something seasonally appropriate. Perhaps something red with hearts for Valentine’s Day or maybe you’re preparing for St. Patrick’s Day with a green collar? Find one here.
