Well I know it's late but I am not going to miss posting for my favorite day! The pups are definitely worth blogging about!
I don't know about you, but one of my challenges is getting a collar, harness, etc. that my hounds cannot slip or chew off. For readers who are owners of other breeds and may not know, typically the neck of a basset is thicker then the head (actually the reverse would apply to them mentally, just kidding!)
Sampson he is great or maybe just a bit slow ;) but he hasn't figured out yet that if he really wants to he can slip that collar over those ears of his. And unfortunately he will chew a harness. It doesn't last a week. How to get him to stop this is beyond me.
Honey Dew of course figured out in her puppy hood how to slip her collar, which is why we went to harnesses. However, now she has discovered that if she moves her shoulders forward she can slip out of this too.
Luckily most of the time they are with me. This afternoon they were at home with my son and once again Dew was loose.
I don't like choke collars, because of the very name and it is not safe for them when they are on the run.
So if anyone has any suggestions out there that works for them, please feel free to leave a comment or two for me.
