    Don't get a collar for your Chihuahua, get a harness. It's much better for their trachea – surprised this trainer didn't make the recommendation. As for getting a name engraved on a harness/collar, I'm not sure. Google "Drs. Fosters and Smith" and I'm sure that site might be of help. Good luck.

    Why does he have a collar on this dog when he's aware of this breed's potential trachea problems? Chi owners, get a harness – my dog loves hers, much more comfortable, too.

    i'm not so sure about your ability to train your dog when you have him on a leash. i've owned several dogs and i've never owned a leash. when we go for a walk they just follow me. i never taught them that. if they wander off i just call them.

    if you dog has the tendency to run away when he goes outside without a leash, he is probably unhappy and feels restricted and has no freedom. treat your dog with respect and you'll get respect back

    @ligyro Your dogs don't run up to strangers or into traffic or anything? The main reason I use a leash is that i know a LOT of people are afraid of dogs, and I do not want my dog to run up to strangers and slobber all over them and stuff. My dog (staffordshire bull terrier) can be somewhat intimidating to some people even if she is extremely good natured. I don't want to make people uneasy, so I use a leash. Also, it's illegal not to use leashes where I live (Norway).

    How many pound is that dog is.?

    i think its better to use a harness than a collar for chihuahuas. Ther trachea (neck) of the Chi is made up of rings of cartridge (not bone) and these are fragile.

    Its wrong all so very wrong.. nugging off isnt a deterrent. they think its playing. you have to stand up and ignore the undesirable behavior and reward them when they are doing what pleases you. 🙂 and the leash not the best idea..

    You should never use a collar and leash for a Chihuahua or any dog for that matter. It is 100% safer (and gives you more control) to use a harness that fits them correctly. My Chihuahua would choke herself to death if I used a collar and leash.
