With most tick collars it is not harmful if the puppy chews on it.  If he was able to get it in his mouth the collar is too loose.  You  should just be able to get two fingers under it.  Also for most parasite collars they rely on the dogs body heat and movement to activate, which is another reason to fit it properly.
