Thanks guys, what age can I start using a flat collar?
Doesn't he have one now?

A "flat collar" is just the regular leather or sometimes woven

He is probably wearing one with his I.D. tags and leash attached
to it. It's the top collar here:

A question here about collars. I have seen an artical about different collars. What someone has done was to test 100 dogs for each collar, choke, flat, and pinch. The study showed that the pinch collar was the collar that had the least amount of injuries to the dog.

I want to find that artical again so that I can direct people to it when they tell me how bad the pinch collar is.

I linked it in the message just above yours.
refers to the study, which is referred to all over the web, but which I have never actually read.
Right, I have seen the reference to the study from that Silverton seminar. What I have never found is the study.

I quote it anyway, because I believe those statements. :>)
