He drools and sheds more than most, which means there is often crusty hair and drool stuck to his collar. He’s always dirty and loves to dive head first into any source of open mud or water.
Of course, I love my dog anyway, and one of our favorite things to do together is go to the beach so he can retrieve a tennis ball from the lake or ocean. Over the years, we have ruined several nylon collars due to this habit. They just never seem to get clean again after a day at the beach, and that “dog odor” is there for good.
If this sounds familiar, you may want to consider a waterproof collar for your dog.
