This collar has a very big negative. The part of the collar with the ring (for tags and leash attachment) hangs down long enough to catch on things and to trip my dog up as he is running; even when the collar is tight enough to stay on. I had to return it.
I love this collar! Perfect size, width and color! I have a blue heeler and appreciate a martingale collar instead of a "choke chain" because it limits the dog's pulling and such without the added weight from a chain and is more comfortable for the dog.
Online size neck measuring instructions are wrong. Collar was huge on my dog and I followed instructions exactly. Ironically, I went back online and read more reviews from numerous buyers who said exactly the same thing. I guess Chewy doesn't read reviews. By now you'd think the online instructions could have been corrected. I am usually a big fan of Chewy so I'm sorry I have to give this a negative review.
The collar is constructed well and sturdy. It was a little tricky to figure how it worked, but once that was done, its what I wanted for my dog.
This is amazing for my 78lb APBT mix that’s fear reactive, he doesnt pull 99% of the time but if he does it doesn’t choke him like a 1in flat would, I also use 2in collars so he doesn’t choke but this works great! It’s very sturdy and I like the separate tag holder
I wish I had read all reviews and not just the star count.The loop to adjust is so long that when not pulling it hangs too low and impossible to stay in place. Bad design overall.
We had to replace this collar after a skunking incident :-0 This is the preferred collar recommended by our rescue coordinator as it keeps the dogs safe and not choked.
Purchased Aug. 10th 2022. Just recently washed for first time, and realized after putting on my puppy who has a 14 inch neck that it no longer fits at all. The adjusting band does not stay in place at all any more; with a little tugging it slips out to a 20 inch neck. Will not buy ever, again, and may not be able to use either for it is so loose.
Other collar slips off head when I pull leash, this one tightens as a pull keeping pup safe on leash.
we adjusted band to fit puppy and went outside ,,,she pulled on leash and collar unadjusted enough to come off
