    Nothing Anne. Just that shit happens, even where you are there all the time. I don't use the collars because Murphy lives with me and with my luck, someone would get caught in one while wrestling. Risk tolerance on my part.

    Besides, bright green and pink nail polish on black coats looks awesome!!!

    We use non toxic craft paint and the Velcro collars.

    Velcro collars seem like a great idea.

    We use adjustable nylon puppy collars. They are made for litter identification, are washable and reusable. I like the better than the Velcro collars, which the ends flipped up on after a few weeks. If doing any DNA testing, I microchip the puppies to decrease the risk of mix-ups before testing.
