Dogs have been and are bred for specific purposes: to hunt,
guard and herd. Some canine classes have even been bred as show dogs and used
as status symbols, dating all the way back to Medieval times. There is no one
perfect breed, and some say a mutt is the only kind of “breed” to get. But did

Let’s take a look at four different dog breeds and the type
of collar that suits them best.
The Labrador Retriever
American Kennel Club
(AKC) lists the Labrador Retriever (lab) as having a friendly and outgoing personality.
Playful and patient, labs have made a welcome addition to families. Labs are
very active dogs and were originally bred as a working companion animal to

social services. As a lab owner, don’t let his gentle disposition fool you.

out on a walk.
Beagles are a happy, laidback dog breed with very curious
natures. Like the Boxer, German Shepherd and Labrador Retriever, the Beagle
(despite having a relaxed personality) is a spritely little beast who loves to
bounce around play. This means they require plenty of exercise. Bred to track
game in a hunt, the Beagle still loves to use their nose for tracking and
adventuring. For the Beagle, the
leather dog collar
is perfect. Their short fur won’t be pulled by the
collar and the leather will mold softly to the contours of their neck, making
for a relaxed fit.
