Who made the modified choke collar so it doesn't choke?

    Heya, I tried searching but got wayyy too many results. I was thinking @Shibamistress or @Losech but I forgot heh. Tsune has guardhair fur loss around where his previous owner left him with a wet leather collar (for weeks at a time outdoors I'm assuming) and I would think the chain choke collar would be great for an all-the-time tag collar. Minus the choke of course, as I don't believe in them. But someone modified their's with an extra ring to limit the sliding action when pulled upon, was just wondering how it had been done. I have a dremel and am picking up the collar today plus a ring, just don't want to screw it up :) Thanks!

    Technically I think any collar left on all the time will cause guard hair loss.

    Hammond's never had a wet collar left on or otherwise been neglected, but just leaving his regular fabric tag collar on all the time has caused a ring around his neck where there are very few guard hairs. I no longer leave his collar on when he's inside, but so far the hairs haven't grown back very fast.

    Awesome thanks for the replies guys!

    @sunyata Oops good call, should have originally posted in DIY. I've been getting pretty far into my new paracord weaving hobby and will be making some martingale collars, going to toss them up here in DIY once they're done :)

    @Losech Very nice! I like the pink brassy color :O All the ones at PetSmart were silver so I picked one of them up, might have to order a nice color like that online. The S hooks were what I forgot, I'll have to pick them up on my way home. I also got a collar that's a bit too big for him, 20" medium size chain, those smaller chains were indeed pretty tiny. Thanks!

    @Anna If it wasn't for the fact that when I arrived at the previous owner's house all the dogs were kept outside in a screened enclosure and the collar was already wet I'd have just figured that, not to mention a half bald rear end from untreated fleas :\ Yeah they don't seem to be growing back very much either, I hear when they grow winter coats it'll all come back, we'll have to cross our fingers!

    @Shibamistress Losech put a picture in up top, she's a crafty one one haha. Tsune just slipped his collar for the first time last week and led my brother and I on a 20min expedition around the neighborhood, definitely going to look into a martingale. You don't walk them on lead anymore right? Or does Bel just run around the yard for excercise?

    @cezieg Heh, it's a silvery color too. It just looks that way due to the horrible lighting when I took the picture. EDIT: I have seen them in different colors, though. If I find the link I'll post it.
