I just got my dachshund, I've had him for about 3-4 weeks. He's 3 months old. I got him a collar that was cloth, just a regular one & he hates it. He cries continuously & itches himself badly & just barks. Do I just keep it on him to have him get used to it or would a leather collar be better?

Go with a harness. There are a number of great brands and have a few. The Puppia holds up very well and is nice and soft. Harnesses are best for Doxies. We also like teckelklub raincoats and sweaters to keep ours warm in foul weather.
