Best Dog Collar for a Spoodle

What is The Best Dog Collar For a Spoodle?

Spoodles. A mix between a Poodle and Cocker Spaniel, are a much loved dog cross-breed, not just in Australia, but across the globe, due to their friendly demeanour, fluffy appearance, and playful nature. 

One of the most appealing features of the Spoodle breed is their hypoallergenic coat, which is perfect for allergy sufferers. Furthermore, they don't shed, so you won't need to constantly vacuum and brush out your clothes! However, the payoff is that they do need regular grooming to keep their gorgeous coat in check.

As a responsible pet owner, one of the essential items you'll need for your Spoodle is a collar. Collars serve not only as a fashion accessory but also as a means of identification and, of course, control during walks. However, with so many options available, choosing the best collar for your Spoodle can be a daunting task. In this guide, we'll explore the factors to consider and recommend some top choices to ensure you find the perfect collar for your furry companion.

Should a Spoodle Wear a Collar?

The answer is yes!

Whilst there are many dog breeds who have delicate necks (like Yorkshire Terriers), or breathing problems (such as Bulldogs), Responsible Pet Breeders Australia, says that the Spoodle breed has a strong enough neck, well-suited to wearing collars.

Sizing your Spoodle for a Collar

With this being said, it’s still crucial to select a well-fitted collar so that your fluffy lap warmer is comfortable. 

Want to know how to measure your dog for a correctly-fitted collar?

Here’s how:
1️⃣ Get your tape measure out - if you don’t have one (or can’t find yours), a string will do!
2️⃣ Place it around your dog’s neck, at the thickest part.
3️⃣ Place 2 fingers between the neck and tape (or string). This ensures a fit that isn’t too tight, or loose.
4️⃣ Take this measurement and compare to the size guide of the brand of collar you’re buying from. If you’ve used a string, mark the spot and lay it flat against a ruler to find the dimension.

What's the Best Collar Material? 

Opt for collars made from soft materials like nylon, leather, or padded fabric to prevent chafing or irritation.You certainly want to avoid metal, as it can rust, and rope may cause irritation and chafe. 

The ST ARGO collar range is made from our buttery-soft vegan leather. It has a leather look and feel, though no animals were harmed in the making of it.

Style and Design

While functionality is essential, there's no harm in choosing a collar that reflects your Spoodle’s personality and style. From vibrant patterns to classic designs, there's a wide range of options to suit every taste. Just ensure that the chosen collar doesn't compromise on quality or comfort for the sake of aesthetics.
