    Factor #2: Size of your Dog Breed

    The size of your dog’s breed needs to be considered whether you are buying or doing your own whelping collars.

    Of course, the size of your dog will determine the materials that you will need to create the collars.

    If you are buying them, then their size will also tell you the best option in terms of durability.

    As we all know, big sized dogs would tend to need collars that are more durable and long-lasting.


    How do you put a whelping collar on?

    The best way I’ve found to identify them from birth to six weeks (when they’re microchipped) is to use color–coded collars. When pups are born, I crochet daisy chains and tie those on for collars until they’re big enough for a high-quality breakaway collar.

    How do you whelp a dog?

    Each collar is a different colour, to help you identify each individual animal wearing them. ➣ EASY TO USE – Our Whelping Collars are very simple to use. Simply apply loosely around the Newborns neck and use the end gripper to fasten the collar. No Buckles, No Clips, No Sharp Edges.

    What can I use to tell puppies apart?

    If all the puppies appear similar, you can identify the puppies using non-toxic, permanent marker pens to mark each one on the abdomen (you can use various colors of permanent markers). You could also tie different colors of ribbon or rick-rack loosely around each puppy’s neck to identify them.
