This summer my wife put a plastic tarp over a corner of the kennel to keep the rain out of their food bowl. Over the summer, they have had a tug-of-war with what they can reach. Tarp got quite shredded. I went out to feed them last night and one of the pups--7 months old--had gotten his head in all the shreds and wrapped around his neck so tight I had to cut it with scissors. Scared the beejabbers out of me. Never again; plywood next time. Thankfully, he has been on a leash several times so he didn't panic too much. Learn something every day.

You are lucky you found him FN.
Reminds me of when I was in 10th grade my friend and I walked to his house after school.
When we went in we found his beagle hanging on the door knob by his choker chain collar.
Dog would jump against the door when he wanted to go out. We figure he jumped up and caught his collar and died there.
Never saw a kid so devastated.

We had a dog that figured out that he could untwist the twine that we had tied him up with. So we bought a chain. He twisted it until he choked himself to death.

I really wish people would learn that a "choke" collar is a training collar only. Only to be used with a leash during training sessions. When the training session is over the collar comes off and a leather one put on. I've known several who have lost their pets this way. gobble

And during training ALWAYS remove the collar when you remove the leash. A choke-chain collar is worn only while on-leash.
