ID Bands & Collars are great for accurately identifying puppies in a litter. ID Bands are usually used from birth, and made from soft velcro. In contrast, ID Collars are similar to a regular collar, and have a safety clip. One will usually need more than one set over the rearing period, because of rapid growth. In addition, puppy ID Bands and Collars become quite firthy. However, all our Bands and Collars can be washed. ID Bands and Collars help identify individual puppies at a glance, which is important for daily weighing, feeding, worming and monitoring. ID Bands and Collars are also great for prospective puppy-owners, enabling them to identify their puppy in pictures and video snippets.

What are whelping collars for?

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.

What age can you put a collar on a puppy?

They are designed to help identify puppies and kittens with no distinguishing markings and help register the pet’s microchip against a colour collar to ensure the new owners are transferred the correct pet and microchip.
