Coastal Pet Products K9 Explorer Dog Collar
My dog has been wearing this collar since we purchased it for him several months ago. I originally picked up the K9 Explorer Dog Collar because of it’s rugged and heavy duty appearance. From the strong yet soft nylon to the polished gun metal side release buckle this collar looked awesome. It had a nice weight because it wasn’t too heavy where it would make my dog uncomfortable but felt much sturdier than a standard collar. The reflective stitching just added to the feeling that this collar was for a dog searching for adventure, and also provides for added safety at night. I also really liked that it had a metal D-ring to attach the leash to that was able to move on the collar, and it had a separate ring to attach his ID tags. They had several different colors to choose from (Berry, Campfire Orange, Fern, Golden Rod, Rose Bud, and Sapphire) but I chose to just go with Fern since it was a nice green color.
When I got home my dog looked like he was very comfortable in his new collar and it looked really nice on him as well. The main reason I wanted to get him a new collar was because his old one was getting very frayed and looked like it was time to be retired. With him doing everything from swimming in streams to running through brush and thorn bushes I wasn’t very surprised that his old collar hadn’t held up. His sister doesn’t help much when they try to grab each other’s collars when playing either. Although he is very rough on his collar and has been in the woods with it multiple times it has yet to fray and still looks brand new. No matter how much wear and tear he puts on it this collar seams to be able to handle it. Having the separate D-ring for his leash also makes it very easy to take him on and off leash. I am very happy with this collar and will definitely be purchasing them for my other dogs as soon as theirs wear out. This appears to be the best collar on the market for anyone who is taking their dogs hiking and I would strongly recommend it. I have attached a link to the collar on amazon.com where you are able to purchase the collar or just check it out. The one in the link is the exact one my dog has but they also have several of the other colors as well.
