Cats and dogs are the yin and yang of the animal world. You may consider yourself a loyal dog lover or a strict cat person, or maybe you love them both! But, there’s no denying the differences between two of the most popular pets in the world. One of the differences that matters most when discussing these two lovable species is the collar you choose. Yes, cats do indeed wear collars too!
Cat owners who worry that their cats may wander away when exploring outdoors use the collar to display an ID tag, or even install a GPS tracker. But, the important distinction is the breakaway feature. These are essential for the safety of cats, whereas non-breakaway collars, such as the quality leather dog collars sold by Woofwerks, are crucial for keeping your dogs safe on their walks. With dogs, durability is your ally. Let’s look at the difference and what to consider when choosing a collar for your dog or cat!
Heights and Hidden Spaces
Dogs and cats are both explorers, but cats have a way of finding tight spots and dangerous heights that most dogs avoid. Cats are natural climbers and can wind up on the top of a tall bookshelf or a high tree branch. They also have much more flexible spines than dogs and love to disappear into tight crawl spaces, attics, basements, and other areas where dogs might be too big to fit or just not interested in wandering. For these reasons, cats are in much greater danger of snagging their collars or choking. It’s important for a cat’s collar to be able to breakaway in case they end up in a jam. Breakaway cat collars are designed to release if a certain amount of pressure is applied, allowing the cat to escape even if a human isn’t nearby.
Walking & Durability
Dogs usually do not find themselves in the same high or tight spaces that cats do. But, we all know they love to get outdoors and get moving. Your cat may be content to bask in a sunny spot on the couch. Your dog, on the other hand, comes in from a walk and immediately begins counting down until the next time they can go out! We’ve all been walking our furry adventurers and suddenly felt them dart for a squirrel or pick up the pace unexpectedly. In these moments, we are very glad that our pooch doesn’t have a breakaway collar. Instead of the breakaway collar, it is important that your canine pal has a more durable collar. Woofwerks’ premium-quality dog leads are designed with safety and durability in mind, and their bridle-leather collars will hold firm on your dog without compromising a bit of comfort.
