3 month old Basenji scratches at her collar a lot?

Is it OK for a 3 month old B to constantly scratch at her first collar ever after having it for about 2 days? Also, she tries to chew on her leather leash once in a while.

If she never had one on before then it's probably awkward for her and she's trying to get the strange thing off. It will bet better with time. A lot of dogs chew their leads.. she's a puppy and these things are new for her.

Very common to scratch. Usuually the breeder will begin to put collars on pups at 3 to 4 weeks to get the used to it…. can take weeks. Chewing leashes is certain common for babies....
