Good advice Inga! Never thought of it. Will next time thoughCool Pictures jcd. Be very careful allowing your dog to play with a pinch collar on. Even tipped inside out like that. They can get hung up on a dogs tooth or anything else. I would recommend taking it off when Bello is playing. Not judging, I just don't want to see Bello or anyone else get hurt. Looks like they had a good time. Spring is fun... all except for the mud.
