Thanks Judy for starting a thread about looking for a type of dog collar. Pfoley brought up the question and concern I had about the clasp/buckle collars. There were lots of positive responses so I have decided to spend some of my Birthday money on new colors. I am looking for skulls or Peace signs. I am also looking for St Frances Medals and/or other medallions to afffix to their collars. Now, they have Jingle bells (Polar Express).
I liked Elegy's hemp web site but when she said hemp collars take awhile to dry sometimes I am thinking hemp would not be good for mine. I have one girl dog that is 33 pounds. The boys are big between 60-80. ( I don't want flimsy little decorative collars ), They gotta work. If anybody has run across web sites with any of the above. Please share them with me. Thanks, Judy

Get two. Or three.
I think I'm going to get one of the hemp for each dog and there were a couple of the lupine that I really liked also. There's a great dane rescue site listed that sells them. If the hemp get wet and take too long to dry they can wear one of their solid color nylon collars for a while.

FWIW, according to past comments here, the Lupine collars do not break hair.

Here's a question. Are you using these as ID collars or leash collars? If the former, isn't it a PITA to swap out ID all the time?

I prefer the strong leather collars on Rottweilers and Pit Bulls. I think certain breeds look silly in the cute collars.

Not speaking for Judy, but I use slide on ID wallets, so it's really easy to change the ID to a new collar. I buy "Real Boss" brand of course ;-D

What do you do for rabies and license tags?

Silly can be a very good thing. Clueless people may be less intimidated by an otherwise scary looking dog, if the dog is wearing a goofy collar or bandanna, or a cute sweater/coat. Less intimidated people is good for breed PR.

They go in there too! There's a little split ring inside the wallet to hold tags.
I have bought 2 brands - the Real Boss and Pet Pocket ID. The latter has snaps that rust over time though, and one had velcro at one point (maybe yet another brand?!?!?), but the RB ones just have a split/overlappping flaps. Of course, that has resulted in Rudy removing the laminated ID card from Franklin's, but a little sizing change has taken care of that.
