Tips for introducing a collar/lead
When you take the time to properly introduce your puppy to the collar and lead, it sets the stage for teaching your puppy the basic elements of obedience. The goal is to have your puppy accept a collar and lead calmly, without resistance. Collars should be introduced to your puppy right away. Don't be concerned if he initially scratches at it or shakes his head; soon he won't even notice it.
A collar should rest high on your pet's neck without fitting too loosely. It should be snug, but with enough room to fit two fingers between your pet's neck and collar. For your pet's safety, the collar should not be loose enough to slip over his head, but not so tight as to restrict breathing or cause coughing
