Handsome collar, good fit, and I've had a good experience with my previous Hoopie Collar. This also has a divider for dog tags, so there is less jingling, should you choose to use it. I gave durability 4 stars, as the plastic tag holder did eventually break, after 5 years, losing my tags. Honestly, my dog may have snagged on something - If he did snag, I'd want it to break off! My previous collar got a lot of use. As I walk/train my Weimaraner frequently, and he goes everywhere with us, he is constantly being put on/off leash. It's also been very, very muddy, and it has been washed very often, yet it held up through it all. Colors still look great.

Can't go wrong...
I bought two of these collars, one for a 75lb English bulldog and one for a 15lb Shih-Tzu and it works great for both. They soft and comfortable but have a rugged dense weave. They are wide which seems to help when the dog pulls on the collar. It seems to lessen the the stress on the neck. I do wish the tag was closer to the leash hook...some people may miss it when looking for it. It's a minor issue tho and by no means a deal breaker.

Great Quality & Customer Service
I have a 97 pound Black Lab mix. The Hoopie Collar is a great collar. The collar provides excellent durability with a very attractive & sporty look. I love the aluminum V-ring feature. The aluminum V-ring makes a strong leash attachment point that is separate from the ID tag attachment. The side-release buckle is strong & does not chafe or irritate my dogs skin. This was a great purchase! I also purchased the Flat Out Leash to go with the collar. I love the leash, but it is not very strong. Within 2 days of having it, my dog chewed part of it:(

I HAVE A VIZSLA THAT LOVES TO HUNT, BUT BECAUSE OF HER SHORT HAIR, I LIKE TO PROTECT HER WITH A HUNTING COAT AND OR A SKID PLATE. PREVIOUS TO THIS PURCHASE, I COULD ONLY FIND COATS THAT STOPPED AT HER LEGS. SINCE SHE IS AN AGGRESSIVE HUNTER, THE INSIDE OF HER LEGS NEAR HER CHEST WOULD GET BEAT UP BADLY. HER NEW JACKET PROTECTS THAT AREA VERY NICELY WITHOUT LIMITING HER RANGE OF MOTION. HER NEW COLLAR LOOKS NICE TOO. OUR LOCAL PET STORES DO NOT HAVE ANY THING LIKE IT. THANKS ALTREC AND RUFFWEAR
