    Does anyone know anywhere online I can purchase 10-15 Reusable Whelping Identification Collars?

    I have just been quoted £5 a collar :eek: from our local pet shop and I'm sure I've seen them else where for half that price but cannot remember where. :001_smile:

    I've never understood why people need to put collars on pups.
    I bit of strategically placed nail varnish in a different place on each pup does the identification job just as well. ;)

    Ask Tanya... she makes whelping collars... I can understand them if the whole litter look the same, such as wholecolour litters

    I love our breed - nothing needed to tell them apart - they do that themselves :D

    We always used nail varnish, but as the pups dont like the smell when you re-apply, I thought we would be 'posh' this time and get little collars, lol!

    Have to say I love them! We got the rubbery newborn ones you just tie in a knot and then when ours where about 2 weeks old we put the posh ones on, adjustable, so will fit till 8 weeks old no problems, and maybe a bit longer too. I just had to tell the lady who makes them what breed I had and how many dogs and bitches. We got ten little handmade collars all different colours and I think they look lovely!:D They are washable and reusable, so will be keeping them for next time too.

    I've had 8 chocolate pups, 4 girls, 4 boys - still didn't see the need for collars

    Probably because I've got gundogs and none of my adult dogs wear collars either but it seems so odd to me to have collars on pups ;) :)

    Having had 2 terrifying experiences with youngsters playing and catching teeth in collars, I would be far too worried about pups getting caught in each others collars ...

    I use the packs of fabric ribbon strips from Hobby Craft stores http://direct.hobbycraft.co.uk/products-HobbyCraft-Satin-Adhesive-Ribbon_290337.htm- they are tacky backed so stick to the pups fur but can be easily peeled off - they can be cut to size - each ribbon strip is enough for at least 2 collars and the pups cannot get anything caught up in them they come in loads of different colours and patterns and best of all they're cheap - a pack of 8 ribbons costs 99p
