Wanted to love this...

Most of the collar is excellent and very difficult to find fault with except the fastening clip. I liked the idea of the fastening clip, looks really strong and indeed it appears to be very strong. Over the past couple of months I have found it to be quite difficult to live with. My dog has long hair and additionally with his coat any collar will dramatically increase matting around his neck if worn all the time, as a result his collar is taken off almost all the time he is in the home. If you have a shorter hair dog and do not need to frequently remove the collar then some of the issues might be less relevant. The good: • Great lead attachment point. • Separate tag placement is wonderful and prevents accidentally clipping onto the tag ring (which with long hair in the way I have done in the past by mistake on other collars) • Well made, good materials, stitching etc, quite clearly a well build product. The bad: • Clip has tight tolerances which make it fairly stiff and fiddly to operate. I had expected this to become easier over time with a little wear, it has slightly but not much. • My dogs long hair gets stuck in the rivets holding the clip together during any extended use (about an hour or more), removing the collar then involves ripping some of his hair out with it (happens every day). The ****: • Due to the tight tolerances the clip jams up very easily when any dirt or sand gets in it. A significant portion of the time I have to remove the collar using the size adjustment in order to free up the mechanism without hurting the dog (happens to me around once a week).

I have four dogs and they all have the front rang harnesses. They are really good and I would never use any other harness. I just wish you did the collars in the same colours.


Hi Rosie! Thank you for your review, check out our new Front range collection- there are now matching collars to the leash and harness!

Good but the clip is prone to getting jammed by small particles of mud.

top rope

robust practical collar but expensive and the clasp is a battle to open which should not be the case at that price


Thank you for your review, I will pass your comments on to the design team regarding the clasp

Looks great

Kind of hard to undo the collar to take off.
