    Must Have for Rainy Pacific Northwest

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Living in rainy Oregon, I struggled to find a collar that did not smell musty after every walk, romp in the mud, and swim. This collar was the answer!

    It fits great, doesn't absorb water, is easy to clean, and is reflective in the dark! My only critique is that I wish the snap/connector for the tag clip was a stronger material to ensure it is secure and won't get ripped off by a bush in the backcountry

    Must Have for Rainy Pacific Northwest

    Black on Black

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Bought this for the pooch and he doesn't seem to mind at all! He got super excited when I brought it home and we put it on him. The collar fits really well due to the material that it is made from and wont stink either for that matter.

    If you dog tries to tug you around while they are rocking this leash there wont be any slippage either.

    Durable No Stink Collar

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My 45lb GSP seems to be just fine with this collar. Her neck measures size small towards her head but a size medium towards her torso so we went with a size medium and it fit great. This collar doesn't get stinky after grass slides, water adventures, and it doesn't accumulate any of her short hairs inside the webbing like other cloth collars do. We have had both the Crux buckle model and the plastic model and both are fine- the Crux buckle makes her look more fancy when she isn't digging holes but the plastic model is much easier/quicker to take off. It helps to leave the collar in the sun for a few hours when first receiving the collar to loosen the collar up and not feel so stiff. I'm sure I'll get more of these collars in the future when our next pup comes along :)

    Durable, well made

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Ruffwear is the only brand of collar that we buy for our dog, all of their products are well made and extremely durable. We have a Great Pyrenees that is over 100lbs so a sturdy collar is important for us. The collar must be comfortable for her too as she always looks surprised it was on her when we take it off for bath time. We purchased this in black and I really like the rubber-like texture of the collar as it's easy to clean and the reflective detailing is a great bonus (even though you can see it through all of our dogs fluff :] ).

    Durable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I like that this collar is made of a rubber material that keeps it locked in place. My dog gets a little squirrely from time to time and I think a collar of lesser durability would slip off, or cause discomfort. It's cool looking and fits the bill. Love it.

    Descent Collar

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The collar is a bit hard to make it stays circular due to its rubber contents. Once adjusted it stays true to the circumference it importants because it won't slip off my dog neck. I normally take my dog to the river trail so my dog got dirty really quickly. Clean the collar off with simple rinse from the faucet is a plus. So far my dog and I love the collar.

    Good Looking, Quality

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    We have two German Shorthair Labs (half German Shorthair Pointer, half Chocolate Lab). They love the water and their collars get to smelling quickly. I stumbled upon these and, after reading the reviews, purchased them. Very pleased so far. As mentioned in other reviews, they are a little stiff at first but it doesn't seem to cause any problems.

    Good Looking, Quality

    Nice and Reflective

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    A sporty dog like Milo doesn't have time to sit still. So when night hits and shes still going this helps me keep an eye an her.

    She's had it for almost 2 years now and its still going strong. Its not fabric like other collars so its water proof and smell proof!

    Nice and Reflective

    Great for the Water Loving Pup!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Like all other reviewers - we were tired of collars becoming stinky & worn out quickly from all the water time our pups get. So glad we dropped in on this one for our boys!



    I'm a big fan of the tag "quieter" and the fact that there's a separate hook for the leash. Like others' have mentioned, it takes a while to 'round out' (we're still waiting), but the pups don't seem to notice.



    Very happy with this purchase!

    Great Collar!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Bought this collar for our dog since all she had was a crappy one. It's a perfect fit for her and she goes everywhere with it on. Water is no problem and I really like the fact that it's specifically built for that purpose. We've gone camping, hiking, swimming and everything else and it's as good as new.

    Good for water

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This collar is great for an active dog! At first, I was worried the rubber would rub my dog's neck the wrong way, but after several months of wear I haven't seen anything like that! It's great not having to worry about taking off his collar when he gets wet. PLUS I can keep it on during bath time, which helps things go a little smoother.

    Best Collar

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great collar - I love that it doesn't absorb water so Doc can run through snow, streams, and lakes without worries. It doesn't irritate his neck like a fabric collar does. It also has great attachment points for his necessary Identification.



    Really good investment and seems to hold up really well!

    Everyday Collar

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    y favorite thing about this collar is the bright, fun colors! I purchased the green and it's looks so cute on my big black lab. He has had this collar for about 8 months and it's still in great shape, he swims every weekend in the summer months. No stink and I have never really cleaned the collar. It's very easy to adjust. The silicone tag silencer doesn't take away all the noise but totally helps a lot. I got this on a sale price, not sure that I would pay full price. It's a great collar but nothing too special.
