Walks are not a WANT, but a NEED for active dog breeds like beagles. But due to their curious nature, you cannot just let your beagle walk by himself when outside. He will most probably run away, chasing a small animal or a new scent. That’s why you need a collar to which you can attach the leash.
But selecting an ideal collar for your beagle puppy can be difficult for new parents. There are collars made of leather, nylon, cotton. There are collars with GPS tracking. There are even Shock collars available in the market. To simplify things, I have listed various collars of different types.
Blueberry Pet Essentials Collar (Best for Walks)
This collar is quite popular on Amazon and for all the right reasons. I am using this one for my younger beagle, Groot, who is six months old, and it fits perfectly.
It is necessary to get a lightweight collar for a young puppy. Blueberry’s collar is strong and sturdy as well as lightweight. One thing I liked about this is that its made with a soft nylon fabric, which is not too harsh for your puppy’s neck.
It has D shaped metal rings for attaching the leash. This makes this highly durable.
- You get an option to customize the collar and add your puppy’s name and your phone number on the collar itself.
- Comes in various sizes. But the ‘Regular Collar- Small’ is an ideal size for a beagle puppy.
- You get to select from 20 color options.
- Made with soft nylon fabric.
- Strong and durable.
Warning: This is not a leave-it-on collar. Use it only when you take your pooch outside for a walk or in the park. And remove it once your pup is back in the house.
Soft Mesh Harness (Best No-Pull Harness)
Beagles are energetic and curious, especially when they are a puppy. Teaching them the correct way to walk on the leash can be tough. If your puppy is super energetic and loves to pull, as mine does, then you should consider Soft Mesh’s No-Pull Harness.
My pup use to pull a lot every time we went outside for a walk. In such situations, standard collars possess a risk of choking. I used this exact product for two months for training my puppy the proper way to walk. When the puppy pulls, the harness divides the strain to the entire body and not just on his neck.
This harness is made with soft, air-mesh polyester material that provides excellent comfort.
- Made with 100% Polyester material.
- Soft and air-mesh.
- Comfortable No-Pull harness.
- It is ideal for young and active puppies who pull a lot.
- It comes with a leash.
CollarDirect Leather Collar (Best Rolled Collar)
Rolled collars are getting popular lately. They are a good alternative to traditional flat collars. Right now, this product is attached to my elder beagle, Yoda. I think they are even better than conventional collars.
CollarDirect collars are made of soft handmade leather. It is lightweight and highly durable.
Normal flat collars can cause damage to the fur in the neck area. There have been many cases where the owners noticed bald patches under the collars. You can prevent this by using rolled collars.
- They come in 7 different sizes. So measure your puppy’s neck and buy accordingly.
- Soft and padded
- Made with genuine leather.
- High quality and lightweight
- Strong and durable.
- Comes in 13 different color options.
Dogline Biothane Collar (Best waterproof Collar)
Leather collars are waterproof. No matter how good the leather is, water makes it weak and breakable. Nylon can resist water, but over time it weakens too. So if you live in a place where it rains more often or you regularly take your pup for swimming, then consider getting a truly waterproof collar.
This waterproof collar from Dogline Biothane stays dry and odor-free. Unlike other collars, it doesn’t shrink or loses its flexibility. I haven’t used this as both of my beagles hate to get wet, but my neighbor has it, and she is very impressed by its performance.
- Water repellent Collar.
- Strong and durable.
- 10 Color options.
- Comes in various sizes.
- The color is highly adjustable.
Illumiseen LED Collar (Best for Night Walks)
If you take your puppy out for nigh walks regularly, then you should definitely get this LED Collar for their safety. LED on the collar helps alert cars and prevent unfortunate events.
Apart from that, it can also be useful if you take your pooch for camping trips. The light is quite powerful and can be seen from a great distance in the dark.
The collar contains a rechargeable USB battery which can last for up to five hours straight. You even get three modes: Steady, Rapid flashing, and slow flashing.
Even after having a battery, this collar is surprisingly lightweight and durable.
- The collar gives out a bring light.
- Comfortable as well as adjustable.
- USB rechargeable.
- The company gives a lifetime guarantee.
- It comes in 6 sizes and six different colors.
Cube Smart Tracker (Best GPS Collar)
Beagles are curious, and they have an independent mind. They love to wander on their own. There have been numerous cases of beagles escaping from their leash or backyard. Last month, Groot managed to slide from his leash and started chasing another dog in the park. After 10 minutes of chasing, I somehow managed to grab his leash.
And that’s why you need a collar with GPS. I learned my lesson and have already attached this GPS Tracker to both of my beagle’s collars.
While there are collars available with inbuild trackers, my personal recommendation is getting this Cube Smart Tracker and attach it to a collar. I don’t recommend getting those bulking GPS Collars is because they are heavy and looks weird.
You can attach this Cube Smart Tracker to any of the above collars.
- Has its own Cube Tracker App.
- You don’t need to charge it every day. It lasts for a year and runs on a battery, which you can replace yourself every year.
Wolfwill Training Collar (Best Vibration/training collar)
First of all, let me tell you that I am totally against using Shock Collar. It’s just inhumane. But this collar doesn’t shock your dog but just vibrates, which irritates the dog, and in this way, you can teach him things he is not supposed to do.
I have never used any kind of training collars, but if you want to, then I would recommend Wolfwill’s Training Collar. It’s waterproof, has a good range, and has 16 levels of vibration intensity. If you are interested in training collars or eCollars, then check out this list of top training collars for beagles.
- 100% Waterproof
- Has a multifunctional wireless remote which has a range of 660 yards.
- It has 16 vibration intensities.
- No Shock.
I hope you have found the ideal collar for your cuddle monster. It’s totally okay to buy more than one collar for different use. Let me know if you have any doubt.
