Introducing a Collar

How you go about introducing a collar to your springer spaniel puppy is crucial. This needs to be successful as responsible owner you need to ensure that they wear a collar when they are out and about.

Why do they need a collar?

A simple yet valid question. Of course you should have your springer spaniel micro chipped which will give all your details should your Springer go missing.

However if you have a collar with an identity tag on it, it is much easier for someone to call you up to let you know they have found your Springer rather than having to take them to the vet to get the chip read.You can also state on the ID tag that your dog is chipped and therefore deter dog theft.
