When should give your puppy a collar?

My breeder had me stick a little collar on him from day 1, when he was 7.5 weeks old.  Here's the thing you need to know: they will scratch at this collar like it's infested with fleas for about 3-4 weeks.  Just hang in there and know that they will eventually get used to the collar!  I waited to put the little metal tag with his name and all that on him until he was 3 months old, but you can do it whenever.  I just figured "everything in baby steps."  Indie is now 4 months old and I'm still using the same collar I had for him when we was 2 months old, only adjusted for his grown.  Indie has this very light, very thin blue nylon collar.  It works great and now he doesn't even notice it!
