Product Review: Dogit Style Collar

Hagen's Dogit Style collection features collars with a variety of heat-printed patterns that won't rub off. These are classic ring-end design collars, where half the plastic quick-release buckle must pass through ring before attaching to the other half. The result is a stronger collar with less force placed on the buckle itself. Dogit Style collars are available in tons of colors and patterns, and four sizes to fit dogs with necks 10-26" around.

Hagen is a company I normally associate with aquarium stuff, but it turns out they own a bunch of familiar pet brands. Most of their stuff is for exotics and aquatics, they own ExoTerra, Habitrail, and Fluval, among others.

Their Dogit brand consists of what I would call economy basics. They make just about everything, at an affordable mass-market big box store price point. I consider it a cheap brand, but more reliable than dollar store stuff. Admittedly I had never really looked at their collars until I found this one in a thrift store.

I wasn't familiar with the process of heat-printing, so I had to look it up. The process involves evaporating ink from paper onto nylon webbing. Cool! I suspect that Buckle Down products are made the same way.


  • Ring-end collar is very strong and durable
  • Comes in tons of fun prints
  • Inexpensive


  • May loosen up over time

Bottom Line

These collars are probably best used to hold tags and look cute. If you're looking for a similar collar for a dog that pulls on leash, I recommend the Rogz Side Release Collar.
