Are you familiar with the system of color-coded collars and leashes for dogs? I got curious about the conspicuous orange collar that Charlie was wearing when I got him and it seems that, according to the system, an orange collar means the dog is good with people but not other dogs. True in Charlie’s case, since he was attacked by another dog.
However, color-coding might not have been the intent at all. The collar may well have been whatever was on hand that fit. I’m just curious how many dog people are familiar with this system. I live in a cave and had not heard of it. But neither had my vet.
I doubt I’ll stick with the orange unless I’m in a tiny minority. I’ve already ordered a new collar with a pattern I like; I’ll probably end up ordering several, with matching leashes. That’s just what I do. Must be well dressed! Besides, orange is my least favorite color.
So what say you? Are you familiar with this system? Would you know a big orange collar was sending a specific message?
