Whenever you want to put your dog on leash, you will need to hold on to his collar.
When you take the leash off, you will need to hold on to his collar.
If, heaven forbid, he should escape from your yard or get lost, someone will need to hold his collar to catch him and return him to you.
If you wish to take part in dog sports, you may find it useful to hold on to the collar to restrain your dog to build drive.
In short, it would be very useful for your dog to enjoy having his collar held.
