Dogs need to be walked.
It is one of the best ways to ensure that they get their daily exercise.
In order for you to take your Frenchie out on it walks, you will need a collar. So today, we will be taking a look at some of the best collars for French Bulldogs.
First on the list, is this stunning ‘Designer Collar’ by ‘Dashin’ Dogz’.
This collar is one of my favorites for everyday use.
They are made from durable rubber, which is not only waterproof but also odor-proof (no more smelly dog collars stinking up the place).
Because it is made from rubber, any dirt that gets on this will simply wipe clean. If it gets a little dirty, I like to give it a quick rinse before I hang it up for the day.
One of the best things about this collar is that dogs will find it very hard to chew through it.
Did I mention that you can also get a matching leash?
If you want something a little cuter, and love studded dog collars, both you and your French Bulldog will love this collar by teemerryca.
The studs on this one help stop any collar biting by making it slightly uncomfortable to chew (They are not sharp, so there is no reason to worry about your pup hurting itself).
Looks-wise, this is a really cute looking collar that is available in 3 different colors (Black, Pink, and Red)
The D-ring is a good size, so no matter what lease you have, you should be able to attach it without any problems.
The main thing that attracted me to these, is the number of styles that they offer (11 style/patterns), and they all look fabulous.
This collar is made up of two sections.
Polyester webbing: Provides much-needed comfort and offers more flexibility over full leather collars
Genuine Leather: This section is located in the buckle area and provides enough strength to hold even the most boisterous of dogs.
Because of this, I decided to get a special, personalized collar for him that has his name and my phone number on it.
After looking at a few reviews, I decided upon this one from ‘Custom Catch’.
It is quite durable, but I do recommend that you don’t overuse it as some people have had problems with them breaking over time. These reviews do seem to be from owners of large dogs, so I think that maybe the problem.
I myself have used it most days, for around 3 months now and there does not seem to be any signs of wear and tear.
I bought these for all of my Frenchies for my wedding 6 months ago and they all looked adorable.
As I bought these for a special occasion, I have only tried them a few times, so I can’t really comment on the durability of them, but collars like these are more for show, rather than dog walking anyway.
You may already know about using shock collars to stop excessive barking, but many people (including me) find the use of them very cruel.
Luckily, the DogRook Bark Collar stops your dog from barking via sound and vibration.
Once attached and turned on, you will be able to set it to sound mode which gives a series of ‘beeps’, your vibrate mode.
Once your dog starts barking, the collar will automatically activate and start beeping/vibrating to let your dog know that barking is not allowed.
I trained one of my pups with this collar as he would be barking all night long at even the slightest of noises.
A few weeks later and the problem was solved.
This collar does no harm to the dog and is really an effective way to stop them from barking.
What Size Collar Does a French Bulldog Need?
As most dog collar brands make their collars different sizes, I suggest that you take a look at there sales page to see the exact measurements.
Just note, that a French Bulldogs neck is an average of 35cm in size.
With this info, you should be aiming for a collar size of 30-40cm.
How Tight Should a Dog Collar Be?
To check the tightness of the collar, you should follow the ‘two-finger rule’.
Once the collar is on, simply slide two fingers under the collar.
It should be tight enough to feel snug.
If it feels tight on your fingers, then loosen it a little bit and try again. Just be sure to not loosen it too much, as your dog may slip out of it.
