Very Heavy
August 5, 2021
It's a nice quality collar but it's very heavy for a dog collar. Seems like they could use lighter weight ring.
ProsIt's a nice quality collar
ConsVery heavy

Good looking collar
August 4, 2021
Looks like a nice orange collar w/ nameplate. I split and removed the circle ring and placed a gps tracking device on this collar. I'll keep the tracker deactivated for hunting season, but just have it on for a way to determine general vicinity of the dog, if needed. The combo of the collar and tracker looks nice, simple, and durable.

Great product and even with the tag customization it can very quickly. Gun Dog Supply is shipping way faster than Amazon these days and their quality is far superior.
ProsSturdy, well built collar that looks like it will hold up well in the field.
ConsNone that I can see now.

Another great collar fro Gun Dog Supply! The center ring collar is a great safety feature..even though we are not hunting, Jeter is always romping through the woods. The collar is extremely durable, yet soft, it doesn’t stink after swimming, and the orange makes it easy to see him. I also love the brass tag on the collar…the regular dog tags always end up falling off.
ProsEasy to clean Durable Doesn't stink when wet Flexible

Soft and very flexible collar
June 15, 2021
Quality dog collar, well made, much softer than other collars and flexible . Longer than I thought, should have ordered a smaller size, but was able to adjust to fit comfortably around my dogs’ neck.

This is a nice thick (like leather) collar, not a thin piece of plastic. It is very soft, my short hair likes it too. The name plate is exactly how I wanted it and attached very well. We couldn't be happier!

These are the only collars I have used on my bird dog. They are extremely durable, more so than similar collars with a reflective strip. They last a long time on active dogs and are easy to clean.
ProsTough & easy to clean.

Love these Collars
May 5, 2021
I have used these collars for over 10 years. Not only do they wear well they look good and the dogs don't mind them. They are a reasonable price and having my address and phone number on the collar is a great comfort.
ProsThey wear very well and have a reasonable cost.

I've been happily purchasing dog collars from Gun Dog Supply for many years. I keep coming back because of the quality collars and especially the flat brass name tags included in the price. I have two dogs using these collars and highly recommend them.
Prossafety ring on back of collar, stays flexible, very visible color
Consnot available in screaming purple

Great All Around Collar
April 2, 2021
Collar is extremely durable and well designed. I like the O-ring and the separate lead snap D-ring If it not for the name tag, we would have lost our dogs when they decide to “break out” for a few hours. What could have been a grave loss, was a phone call from a neighbor saying we have your dog.
ProsMaterial will hold up for YEARS and color fades only slightly over time Easy to take on and off dog Name tag option that uses brass to ensure contact information will not become illegible.
Conscollar is slightly bulkier than other collars with less features
By freddogs
Better than it looks
March 26, 2021
When I took the collar out of the packaging I though it looked like a strip of vinyl. With closer examination I could see it was laminated. It fit well. It seems durable and doesn't look any duller after a couple week of wear. The tag was correct and riveted sturdily. It shouldn't pick up the dirt like the woven nylon collars. It's also fairly flexible like leather. The only annoying thing is that shipping is half what the collar costs. I didn't have anything else to buy.
Prossturdy flexible metal parts chrome plated so it shouldn't rust permanent tag with phone #s
ConsShipping half what the collar costs

I like this style for my GSPs. The ring is easy to clip and supposedly easier for them to back out of if snagged
ProsNice bright orange color, appears to be very well made, the collar fabric itself is flexible but impervious to water and grime. The sizing directions are accurate.

Purchased three collars for my hunting dogs. I’m very pleased with the quality of the collars. The information plates are an added bonus. This is the first time I have purchased collars from Gun Dog Supply and I will continue to pursue their products.
ProsGood quality.

I have ordered several items from GDS, and love the service and product quality. This collar has been a favorite of all of my and may family's GWP from puppy to adult dogs, and the name/contact tag has survived many hunting trips in the brush, looking just as nice and contact information as clear as the day they arrived.
ProsDurable, color fast, no hot spots on dog from rub spots.
ConsNone at this time.

Perfect collar for my dog
December 22, 2020
I wanted a collar for my dog when I take her in the field. I wanted it to be hunter orange. All the collars I found were all that plastic feeing material. This is soft, feels almost like material, and nothing gets stuck to it. Love that!! The bonus is, she has her name on the collar so no jingling now. The only thing is I wish it was a little thinner and lighter.
Pros Pros: Bright, Name on a plate right on the collar so nothing hanging.
ConsCons: A little thick and a little heavy

This one was a replacement for one bought here I think 6 years ago. Soft, flexible, and durable. Plus I really like the brass tags with contact info. I have GDS put on an extra tag with the Chip information.

ConsNone really.

Nia & Hunny love their new "jewelry"
December 20, 2020
We purchased collars for our chocolate and yellow labs. Went with the orange as we pheasant hunt and there’s a lot of deer hunting surrounding our land. Love the material that is not plastic or leather but does have that feel of leather making it easier to stay clean. The 1” wide collar gives plenty of room for the brass plate with our phone numbers and city/state stamped on it. The sizing information made it easy to order the correct size. We definitely very happy (as our labs are) with them and would purchase again.
ProsVery durable Good color Stamped brass plate Ease of determining size

December 20, 2020
Collars are nice and bright, great when you our on the field with your dogs. They are also waterproof and last forever. I measured my dogs necks and bought the collars according to it with name tags but when we received the collars they were too small. I called customer service and without a problem they asked me to send the collars back and got the bigger collars in no time. Great product and great customer service!

The best dog collar we have ever purchased!
October 4, 2020
I received your soft glo orange with brass name plate in just a few days. It would be wonderful for any dog as it is so pliable and soft. I love the safety ring to make the collar roll if the dog gets hung up. I have had other collars with some of these features but not all in the same collar. Thank you for your quick service. My rescue Plott Hound looks terrific. I am ordering another. I wish every dog had this collar.

Since my dog was a puppy, this was the first collar he wore and it’ll be the last. Every time he outgrows one I buy the next size up. Easy to clean, instantly dry after getting out of the water, and the color doesn’t fade at all.

Waterproof, Soft, Visible, and Safe
September 2, 2020
Our family has been buying the Mendota Durasoft collars for our labradors, pudelpointers, and wire-haired pointing griffons for twenty years. Waterproof and bendable. The center ring is convenient for when you need to quickly snap on a lead to the dog, and the O ring makes for a more bendable collar. We've used this collar in wet SE Alaska for duck hunting (black or brown) and for upland game hunting in Oregon and Montana (orange). It's a classic and reliable collar that we would recommend for all waterfowl or upland game hunters. Comes in a variety of colors.
ProsWaterproof, leather like, soft, comes with identification plate- highly recommended --bendable and comfortable for the dog to wear. We like the O ring style for two places to clip the dog to lead or check cord. Various colors available for different hunting situations. A dependable collar.

Even better than I expected... and I expected a lot!
September 2, 2020
This collar is VERY nice. It has a very soft feel in hand, like broken in leather. It cleans easily with a wet cloth or babywipe. The hardware and fitting are well done with no edges to irritate the dog. The free nameplate is an added bonus and looks great on the orange. I really couldn’t be happier.
ProsSoft, leather like feel conforms to dogs neck well and looks very good.
