Hey man, forgot to ask you this in my email, but I figured
there might be some other people that could benefit from the
knowledge. How do you treat collar rub?
This is both good and bad, but my male stayed at attention
during a rainstorm last week. Saw someone go past the house
and just stood there watching for several hours in the rain.
I couldn't get him into his house for anything -- that's
good that he'll do that, but when the sun came out, his
collar chafed the hell out of his entire neck. What made
things worse is that it rained again two days later.
So now my boy has collar rub real bad -- bad enough that I
can't put his collar on, which means he has to stay inside
and can't guard my other dogs. I've been washing the sores
with betadiene, patting it dry, and applying almost a full
tube of polysporin per day. It seems to be working, but
there's gotta be a better method. Any suggestions?
