Has anyone had the metal from collars stain their doods? I had the nicest training collars for my boys, but had to get rid of them as the metal left dark/silvery marks on their fur. Have since tried a training collar made from nylon but they're not as good.
No I don't really approve of the prongs or even regular choke chain. They were a nylon collar with small chain where you could attach leash. A great looking and durable collar made by a company in Whistler called Silverfoot. Collars have Native tribal designs. We got the other collars from them in exchange. I have noticed tho that their tags also leave a metal stain!
We have had this problem from a training collar and also from their tags. It does wash out but looks yuk between baths. I did try painting Zeke's name tag with clear fingernail polish but it didn't seem to help much. We have nylon collars and I'm thinking of getting plastic tags.
I have had that problem and also collars matting the wool around the neck. Now i buy a faux fur lined collar off the internet very pretty with a bling name but the fauz fur stops the staining and the matting. Will never use a different collar for sure.
I found that metal collars and tags stained. I use prong collars made of stainless steel from Leashes by design because they also added an easy to open and close gizmo. i also ordered stainless tags on the web. No staining with these.
