I've had the quick release buckles release unexpectedly, and now I have flat buckles or adjustable round collars on all the dogs.

I haven't, but don't disagree that hard plastic is prone to breakage, especially in cold weather.
Any collar carries some kind of risk, unfortunately.

How about lightening striking twice? This morning, five minutes after Eenah arrived, the same thing happened, this time with her jaw wrapped around Bingo the Mudi's collar. Luckily, it was a quick release, though my hand still got a bit cut up holding Eenah's jaw immobile while I hunted for Bingo's collar release.

I have 8 dogs here right now, not a one wearing a collar.

Or you could do what I did, and get a thug chain for holding the ID tags on the dawg. And, they'd definitely give off the right impression, especially on a Boxer.

Lola finally got ahold of her thug collar last week and chewed the buckle side off. this was the big black leather number with the big metal flowers on it. now how's anyone gonna know how tough she is?

You know, in all my years of multiple dog ownership and even given how rough the Siberians play (grabbing each other by the withers is a particular play game that would seem to be a risk for collar-wearers) I've never had that happen, although I've certainly been aware of it as a possibility. I wonder if you're more likely to have play accidents if you've got different breeds with different play styles romping together.

I think that's true. Our Siberians grab each other, too, but not around the neck. The Whippets can get pretty feisty with each other, but they wear wide martingales. And greyhounds never grab each other unless they're trying to leave a hole.

I'm hoping that it's one particular dog's playstyle. As long as Eenah's in the house, all collars are off.

how awful. I had a client with a Golden puppy. Her son had put the dog in his crate in ... everyone told the son it was not his fault. BS - it absolutely was and how was a lesson learned?

how old was the son? maybe too young for a hard lesson like that?

14. not too young. and a child too young to learn the lessonshouldn't be in charge of crating the puppy.
