Is there anyone who has found a collar their Sheepie can wear without getting horribly matted? My suburbanite Sheepdog needs his collar as he believes all cars go to the dog park. Thanks!
Respond to this topic here on  
Nope sorry I've not found one.
But the thinner the better in my experience.
Mind you even with no collar they matt eventually. :evil:
Thank you!
People used to say that a thin rolled smooth leather collar helped, but in my experience a full time puppy cut was best! Hahaha :wag:
Thanks so much! He loves the pool and it's so hard to stay ahead of the matted hair that goes from wet to dry from wet to dry.
With our first fluffy we used a very fine chain link collar, it had a small material part. That never matted Shep's fur though did make a black line if didn't keep an eye out. xx (those were the days when all trainers insisted on "choke chains"-we used a rolled leather one for training)xx :tea: :wag:
Awesome, thank you (and mostly for the puppy pic! Gorgeous!).
I will echo what most here said. Nope! :D

Neither dog wore a collar in the house, unless we were going for a walk or traveling. When the dogs were in full coat (which didn't last long :D ), I cut the area around the neck down to about three inches to accommodate a collar.

Both dogs spent the majority of their lives in a puppy cut.

Thank you. He's gorgeous fluffy but it's so fleeting. I appreciate the advice. My groomers aren't familiar with OES. Not a lot in Southern California.
See my previous post. viewtopic.php?f=15&t=43066 :cheer: :D
