She will get used to it. She will scratch at it and rub her neck against the ground for a day or two, but just keep it on her!

The only time my dogs dont have theirs on is when they get bathed. As soon as they are dry the collars go right back on!

Princess doesnt mind her's much, but as soon as Mariah's goes back on, she acts like she's been on the streets all of her life and never had a collar on before! lol.

Try putting it on her a few hours at a time. My dog loves the collar because she associates it with a car ride or a walk. They will slowly get use to it with practice.

They will get used to it. My dogs always have a collar on except for when they take a bath. And then I usually let them roam around the house without until their completely dry.

Both of my dachshunds are NAKED!!!

My oldest pup doesn't mind a collar but we don't put it on her because of the jingling sounds when she walks. And our puppy HATES her collar and won't even move if she has it on. :rolleyes: I should just leave it on her so she can deal with it!

our dog wears his collar from morning to night. i take it off him before he gets into his crate to sleep and then i put it on in the morning at the front door before we go outside. when he was a few months old, he HATED it. as soon as he saw it coming towards him, he'd start to chew on it so we'd spray it with Bitter Apple, and he got used to it. now he just stays perfectly still when i put it on him. his dog tags jingling is how we keep track of where he's going in the house since he's short :P

Same thing here - collar only comes off for bath time and he comes running when you jingle it to put it back on after he is all nice and dry!

Kitten doesn't wear a collar, but that's because she never goes outdoors and collars give her horrendous knots and matted fur around her neck.

Both of my dogs wear their collars 24/7. In addition to having their license and id tags on it, they also have a tag saying they are microchipped and their St. Francis Medal. :heart:

all my cats are indoor cats, the older two don't wear collars, but the youngest does only because it was what he knew before he came to my home, plus its got a bell on it, so you always know where he is, which is pretty nice

All my kitties wear collars, they didn't like it much when they were young but they got used to it. Just wear it on them, and ignore their protests. And ditto about the bell. Oh and get those with the safety catch types.
