This is a great collar. It is heavy duty and has a heavy duty D ring. My dog has broken two collars (one leather and the other nylon at the D ring) because he is very large, athletic and territorial and somehow snaps them when he jets off to chase other dogs. He's a big baby but really scares the jeepers out of other dogs and owners. This collar has two means of security via the buckle and the Velcro. It also has a handle which is great for holding him next to me so others can pass by us on walks. I am so glad I found this collar because I had totally lost hope in "ordinary" collars actually holding up. If you have a large dog and need a secure collar that you don't have to worry about its structural integrity then this is the collar you need. Plus he really seems to like it - it must be comfy too.
In love with this collar! It looks awesome on our Australian Shepherd Border Collie Mix. The collar is made very well with strong Velcro. The clip is easy to do with just one hand and the handle is just the right size and in the perfect place for quick grabs. Would definitely buy again but it's so durable it will probably be a long time!
