Should my canine wear a collar at home?

I detest all the jingling.

I don't care for the feeling that collars can leave in hide, particularly with Cosmo since he shows. Additionally, Penny acted the hero and she had a horrible impact on her neck from wearing a collar day in and day out.

I stress over the collars getting tangled or captured on something. I've heard frightfulness tales about strangulation and such. I've viewed my mother's dog become trapped in a story vent through his collar tag. It was damaging. Say thanks to God I was there to spare him.

Collars simply look awkward to me. I can't envision dozing in one!
