My dog hates them, for some reason. He's ginormous, so the 2" is what I used, but if I put it on him, he heads for the car :( . I'm preparing to get crucified...but a dog who likes to bite will bite regardless of what he's wearing. We're finally getting my dog to bite wearing whatever collar he happens to be wearing at the time. It depends on your objective to some degree, too. I don't want a dog who is equipment-oriented. Some dogs get all hyped-up when you put the collar on them; this is ok for sports, and might even help a young dog focus, like a signal that it's "work time." The objective is to minimize injury to the neck if you have a really hard-hitting dog. What about a harness since your dog's young? How big is he? I guess I'd go w/the 2" unless it's ridiculously huge in comparison to the dog, like Selena said.

I've not bought collars from Leerburg or the other Elite, but here is one that I buy all the time:

If your dog's neck is smaller than 23", I'm sure they have one that'll fit.
They also have great muzzles, harnesses, leads, Herm Sprenger correction collars and other things at really good prices.

Scott and Jeff, must we discuss my personal life on the internet? Please, gentlemen, some discretion... :lol:

He heads for the car if I put it on him outside, like, when he's up next for bitework... :oops: . So I just quit using it. Problem solved. I think he associates it w/the first a$$hole who flanked him.

I don't like collars even 2" ones. We use and sell harnesses with a loop in the back. The dog can still breath and they can have more freedom without choking themself out. If you still go for one, 2" or more in width. See our training pics for the harness style we use. www.gainesfarmandkennels.com
