Kirby has minor anxiety issues and one of those involves putting on and removing a collar. He can get sore spots if he wears a collar constantly, so I cannot just leave one on. He also cannot tolerate a harness. I need something that doesnt involve the usual loud click and hard push of the snap closures. He is fine with buckle collars, but I was looking for specific colors and they werent available in that style and we can both sometimes be impatient with the process. We both love this one! Quieter click with minimal force required to close. Very easy release. We both love it. Bought a back up plus another color. Probably not strong enough for a big puller, though.
It is sort of stiff and just not as expected. It might work for some but i just did not like it. Thinking of returning it. But maybe I will gift it.
I bought two of these. The nylon and plastic portions still look new a year and a half later. But within 6 months, the chrome plating on the metal parts on both collars was starting to wear off, exposing some sort of reddish metal below. Now, the metal pieces look horrible, worn out- just not nice looking at all. It's unfortunate, because the rest of the collar looks new.
I purchased two Frisco collars for my two dogs. All was well until one day I hear my dog cry out in pain. I run into room and see her collapsing and shaking in what I thought was a seizure. I held her to comfort the poor thing and it was then that I noticed a toenail on her back leg was snagged in the collar. The collar had unraveled, by what i assume was her scratching her ears, and got wrapped around a toenail. The weave in this collar does not hold up to dog life, and my girl is an old, sedentary 20 lb. mix. This shouldn't happen.
Gracie loves everything she gets from Chewy. Her new collar fits and looks great.
I am updating my original review. I gave it 5 stars after I bought it two months ago, since it is a nice comfortable collar for my dog. The problem is that my 82 lb German Shepherd chases bunnies if they come in the yard, while he is on his tie out. The plastic buckle broke while he tore after a bunny. I am happy that I saved his old collar until I can find a different comfortable nylon collar that has a strong metal clasp and D-ring.
Looks great, strong clip that does not snap /break
Very nice collar but had a concern with the fasten. Gave it a try anyways. My two dogs are players. During play, my dog easily unfastened his brother's collar and also loosened the collar. The fasten is plastic - this should only be a concern if your dog is a player and a smartier pants.
Broke within 24 hours! Not happy with this purchase!
I love this collar and color. My puppy has chewed on it and shredded some of it but it is still my favorite.
