This collar has worked great for me so far. I love the metal leash attachment ring, it sticks out enough to make it really easy to attach the leash, but its not big enough to get in the way at all. By the way, the current ring looks like the picture in the "cascades" color above, not the round one that shows up in the "forest green" or "glacial blue" color. I think that round one is a previous version of this collar. Probably makes no difference, but the newer one looks cooler, so your dog won't get picked on at the dog park. Unless it's a basset hound.
