Best Collars For Your Pomsky
You want to outfit your furbaby in the best, and collars are of utmost importance. This best collars for your Pomsky list is going to be your go-to!
Because Pomskies are a relatively new cross-breed, there really isn’t a way to tell just how big your Pomsky is going to be. Ranging from 18-45 pounds on average, you’ll most likely use a small/medium collar, and you’ll want to be mindful of the double coat Pomskies have.

How tight should a collar be?
A dog’s collar shouldn’t be too tight nor too loose. If the collar is too close to your pet’s skin, it could chaffe and irritate their skin, and even cause hair loss and thinning, or choke your pet. Too loose, and the collar will slip right over their head and they’re free to run away- so it’s crucial to find that sweet spot between too loose and too tight. As a rule of thumb, you should be able to fit two fingers between your pet’s neck and the collar, no more no less.
How should I place a collar on my dog?
Unhook the collar and place it on your pet’s neck. If it’s an adjustable dog collar with side-release or quick buckles, clasp it and then move the straps to adjust the fit. In case it’s a belt-style collar, adjust it as you would your own belt: loop the one end of the collar through the buckle, adjust, and clasp. Easy peasy! Just make sure that you leave a little room for comfort and you’re all set for a walk.
How to clean a dog collar?
Dog collars come in many different materials so the method of cleaning will depend on the material- the only thing that remains the same is the fact that you should be using gentle, pet-safe cleaning products. White vinegar diluted with water is a great choice for leather or synthetic materials, whereas cotton and natural materials can be scrubbed with mild dish detergent to get out the grime and dirt. Once the collar is washed, leave it to dry flat, and in the case of genuine leather, condition before putting it back on your pet’s neck.
