Top 5 Best Dog Collars for Yorkshire Terriers

The dog collar is an essential purchase for any responsible Yorkie owner; not only are they used for identification, but they enable the owner to control their pet via a leash. In this article, I will briefly look into what I consider the three most important things that should be considered before purchasing a collar for your dog. I will also share my top 5 recommended collars that I think you will love, some that have been used by myself, friends and family.

Material used to make the collar

If you are looking for a collar that is waterproof or water-resistant, look for collars made with leather, or collars made with nylon that is coated with polyurethane, as this is a water resisting material. However, most collars will state if they are waterproof, but read the product description carefully before purchasing if this is something you require.
