Center ring dog collars are pretty standard on working dogs. The girls run through a lot of heavy brush, and these are the least likely to get tangled on something. The engraved nameplates mean I can have identification on them without dangling tags, and the center ring design would allow them to back out of the collars if they got caught on something.
I hadn't seen the K-9 Komfort brand before, but I was looking at center ring collars on GunDogSupply.com and these caught my eye because they were so inexpensive. They were easily half the price of similar-looking products. I am shocked to learn that they are handmade in the USA!
Having done some leatherwork myself, I know what kind of effort goes into the details for a collar like this. The edges are beveled and finished so they are rounded, allowing the collar to slide along the coat nicely. If you leave the edges of a leather strap squared off, the corners can be quite pokey.
The hardware is also quite nice. It's brass plated steel, so all the beauty of brass without the softness.
- Beautiful, long-wearing safety collar
- Strong but beautiful hardware
- High-quality stitched leather
- Made in the USA
- Somehow only cost me $18
- New leather is a bit stiff
I can't figure out how K-9 Komfort is making collars this nice for this price. Maybe some kind of voodoo magic?
