1. Protection: A wider collar helps distribute the pressure from the collar more evenly across their neck, reducing the risk of injury. Thicker collars can help prevent the collar from digging into their skin or causing discomfort, which is important for greyhounds – known for their sensitive skin.
2. Preventing Slipping: Greyhounds have slim heads and necks, which can make it easier for them to slip out of traditional narrow collars. A wide collar helps prevent them from slipping out accidentally – handy for walkies or greyhound meet-ups.
Leash Attachment: Greyhounds are powerful runners and can reach high speeds quickly. Their narrow necks can be more prone to injury if they suddenly lunge while on a leash. A wide collar provides more surface area to distribute the pressure from the leash, reducing the chances of strain or injury.
4. It's fashion (a.k.a. fashound): Many greyhound parents also use wide collars as a fashion statement. Neck bling for quick things.
