We're looking at our TufFlex collars. We're going to show you three different kinds of collars that we have.
This is probably the most common collar that we sell. It's called the Standard. It looks a lot like a man's belt. Pretty simple design, D-ring, collar goes through.
We have a similar product, but this is a center ring. Has the same buckle, same D, but you've got your safety center ring here in the middle. A lot of folks like this because they've got a D to attach their leash to, but they've also got a center ring if they want access to that. So, pretty popular, especially for folks that are going to have their dogs on a leash or on a chain at any point.
The collar that I use the most is the D-end collar. Occasionally we'll get folks that will get these and they are a little confused about them because they expect the D to be in a different spot. But it's called a D-end for a reason. The D is on the end. So when you are putting the collar in you go through the D first and then you go through the buckle.
What this does is it puts more material between the D. So you've got this to pull on right in here, but you've also got this additional piece, and it takes pressure off of the D. So this is the strongest of the collars that we sell. The majority of my dogs wear D-end collars.
This is TufFlex. Real popular material that we sell for folks that like the look and feel of leather but don't want the hassle of having to care for leather. What's great about TufFlex, it is a synthetic material. It's over a piece of nylon. And it looks and feels like leather. But the advantage is it doesn't pick up smells. It's great in the water. You just don't have to care for it in the way you have to care for leather. They are going to hold up for you for a long time. Really nice collar. Very popular.
I like that it doesn't smell as bad as a leather collar, and it holds up better than the leather collar. I'd recommend this collar to anyone. Only problem I see is it seems to be shrinking the older my dog gets. Or maybe my dog is getting fatter.
It's a good collar.

"My chocolate lab is constantly in the water, and this collar has lasted 3yrs and still looks great."
Steve, I just wanted to let you know I just received the 3 tufflex collars I ordered, and I have to say wow. What high quality collars. We are always going through collars with our dogs, but I don't think these ones will get tore up at all. I will definitely recommend them to friends. Again thanks for the great service and high quality products.

Since this is a Christmas present, Murphy hasn't tried it out yet. We have a home on the Outer Banks of NC, and he loves to run the beach and go in the water. I really like the color selection and matching leads. Since Murphy is a blue merle, I chose the blue collar and lead. I like the quality and am sure it will be perfect for our beach dog.

Second time we have ordered these. Our dogs love the taste of the leather ones and would chew them off each other eventually, so we have gone with this style and have had great success. We only reordered because we are moving. The old ones are still going strong and have only faded after 10 years.

Love these collars. They are long-lasting and saved my younger dog's life. My curious little GWP ran off when he was a pup and after four days, someone spotted his orange collar dashing through sage brush and was able to get a crew together to catch him. In another incident, some friends of ours lost their GWP while out hunting... Found him the next day after he'd been shot in the leg. Another shot hit the brass name plate and dented it in...that would have killed him had he not been wearing the collar WE recommended our friends get. His leg was so bad it had to be amputated but he's fine now and back hunting in the field.

We had some really nice leather collars on our dogs, but they're so active that they frequently end up wet from creeks/ponds/rain, and the collars began to smell mildewy. I love the look of this collar and its durability. The bright colors allow our dogs to be easily recognized as pets and not mistaken for coyotes or feral dogs by our farming neighbors. I also love the name plates. They're very secure, and there's no annoying jingle!

I have a 5 month bloodhound puppy who is a water retriever by heart. Regular nylon collars don't stand up when it's used in the water. While I've noticed the collar does get dirty, it's easily washed off. But my puppy also rolls in the dirt every day, so that's a factor :) I love the center ring collars. They fit around a dog's neck better.

"I love the collars, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone with a dog that loves to roll in anything and everything."
Two years ago, a friend purchased two collars from gun dog supply for my dogs as a birthday present. Though they were not the exact same style as the ones I just purchased (they had a sort of clear plastic coating instead of the faux leather look). The old collars were in perfect shape two years later. They held up with my dogs, who spend a lot of time in the mud and in the woods. If they could have been torn up, they would have been. I got another dog and changed phone numbers, which is why I decided to order 3 new ones. I was unable to find the exact style that I previously owned, but decided to try the tufflex with a safety ring. They look great and are holding up so far. I am worried that they will not remain as clean for as long as the collars with a plastic coating, but so far my worries have amounted to nothing. I love the collars, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone with a dog that loves to roll in anything and everything.

I LOVE this collar. It looks great and does not absorb water so it never smells. I have it in brown, which does resemble real leather. I bought a red one for my mother's dog and while it doesn't look as much like leather, it still looks really nice. Hudson has worn this collar for about two years and it still looks pretty good. People always ask me where I got it. Highly recommended!

Only thing that my son mentioned for his collars was the name plate was on the side with the holes and he had to move it because he had to add some holes to his collar to make it smaller. So far so good. We will see how they hold up and (smell) when they start swimming this summer.

Looked a lot of places before I finally found a pink collar - so thankful. I purchased the collar for my sister's family dog and they love it. Their dog loves to jump in water so it is perfect - and with the pink collar no one will confuse her for being a boy dog. She looks extra beautiful with the pink collar. Thank you Gun Dog Supply. :o>

"I love that this collar is impervious to the elements."
I love that this collar is impervious to the elements. There are no folds for hair to collect in. The collar is hard to find (white.) I love the brass ID plate riveted on. It is made of a rubber material that dries in seconds. The ONLY thing I don't really like is that the material shows metal rub in the form of dark gray areas mostly near where her tags are attached. That is a nitpick and not really a negative, as it will come off easily with a bit of alcohol. Oh yeah...the price was awesome and I love that it is made in America. Thanks Steve Snell. I will buy again.

I am pretty happy with this collar. I tie my dogs for short periods frequently, mostly to manage shade and to keep them from running hogs in the heat--- and the center ring is a plus for the dogs comfort I think. The lime green was a nice different look, and of course it sunburned immediately but I have no problem with that. I generally prefer leather collars, but this is a nice change.

The K-9 Komfort TufFlex center ring dog collars are the BEST collar I have ever owned. The center ring is great for snapping a leash while the D ring holds their license and ID tags. We walk in the woods and the bright colored collars are very visible. When they get dirty they clean up with soap and water and look like brand new. We live close to the shores of Lake Michigan so we walk along the beach. These collars are not affected by water and they are very durable. These high quality collars hold up to our harsh cold winters. We have ten standard poodles and five of them are black, so having different colored collars helps me to know which one I am calling. I plan to order some more soon just to have a variety of colors. I am not one to write reviews or brag up a business, but Gun Dog Supply will always be first choice for all my dogs needs. Your website is very informative and you ship all items quick. Most of all, I have found the staff at Gun Dog Supply to be helpful, friendly, courteous, and efficient. Kirt from Michigan.

I like these collars a lot. The hardware is a bit heavy for my 4-month-old, 22-lb puppy, but he has some growing to do (expect him to end up at about 45lbs). I love the fluorescent pink and light green colors I chose because they show up really well in low light conditions where my dogs themselves are not easy to see (one is liver red, the other is red merle with sandy-colored merling).

"Works good doesn't bother the dogs coats or rub on him poorly as some collars can"
I really like the fact that they come in so many different colors. They are very flexible, even in cold weather and are very easy to clean. The things I don't like are the fact that they still do fade over a period of time, especially the bright yellow. After about 9 months of use on my youngest dog, the collar was starting to split around the ring and the buckle. They are not supposed to absorb odors and I will agree with that except for skunk. My youngest one just got skunked here about 3 weeks ago and I had to toss the collar out. This didn't surprise me because I have not seen any collar material that will not absorb skunk smell. The collars on the other two dogs, which are blue and orange, are still in great shape after a year. The only complaint I have received from my customers is that some of the collars have faded from sunlight, yellow being the worst and more so on dogs that are outside all the time.

It is a nice collar! We got it for the purpose of eliminating the rattling of the tags. Success!! The D ring still hits the buckle and makes noise, but the name plate is a huge help. I prefer writing a review after I've had it for a bit of time to make sure that it's a good review based upon wear and tear, etc. However, I will write now based on the requests I am receiving. Due to this, I am only rating it as good.

I put a small cow bell on the dog's collar and the central ring and the buckle are larger than the ring on the Durasoft making it harder to put the bell on.
Also I think the length of the collar from buckle to tip is longer than the Durasoft, so the collar is just a bit too long for one of my dogs (although I might have mismeasured_ - not really enough to "complain about", but since you asked.
It really is a fine collar.

"The collars seem very tough and strong, yet they stay soft."
Looks good and is well made. The collar fits my GSP in the middle hole, and the end of the collar sticks out away from the collar, which I don't like. I'm currently tying a piece of dental floss around the collar and end to bring it up against the collar. I ordered some small bright orange tie wraps, which I plan to use to secure the end which will be a better long term solution. The next smaller size collar may have avoided the problem

"Material, hardware and construction are all great but the fit on a less than stocky dog is not."
Material, hardware and construction are all great but the fit on a less than stocky dog is not. The material is so thick that where the D-ring is placed that looks like a big knot on top of the dog's neck. I'm sure if he was a lab it would be fine but I will be looking at the other option.

It was recommended to me by my dog trainer. She showed me one. It looks great. I like the design. The only problem is that I ordered a size too big. I can't use it. That is totally my fault. To all make sure to measure your dog correctly. Mine is 8 months now and it is still too big. I don't think he will grow into it. My loss, but the product looks great.

"I will be buying more of these in the orange color for hunting season."
I ordered one of these collars back in August. So far it has been great. The name plate seems to still be in great shape after daily wear and tear. I take the dogs out daily and work them. They are on leashes often and the center ring is great for walking. I will be buying more of these in the orange color for hunting season.

"has what I feel will be a very durable construction."
I love the colors. Very bright and easy to spot. I have two puppies, however, and the first few days they had them they chewed on each other's extra collar, so that part is covered in teeth marks, cosmetic damage only. Labs chew everything. The ID tag is great be sure to fill out YOUR INFORMATION, if they get lost you want them to be returned to you! Overall, I really like the color and plan on continue getting them this color for the duration of their life.

"I like the collars. more flex then the day glow collars."
A good place to do business with. There was a mix up with my order, and they were very prompt in fixing the issue no questions asked. Thank you Gun Dog Supply. Would definitely recommend to other people.

Wirehaired Griffons. Owns 4 dogs. Hunts. Family pet. Competes.
No problems with the collars. I didn't think they held their color as long as they should of. I like collars with the double rings and with getting a name plate at a good price, it was the right collar for me.

My dogs play in the ocean everyday, so their collars take a beating. The collar itself is great, but I'm already seeing a change in the ring that joins the two pieces of the collar together. The ring is not rusting (yet), but it's looking pitted, for lack of a better word. I will keep my eye on this, and I will also see if I can clean it with a cloth.

The collar is ok. I expected it to last longer without cracking. The red color is also rubbing off and dying the white hair on my dog's neck red. I don't think I'd order another one. I have an orange one on my other dog which is holding up fine.

I accidentally order the wrong collar. The Tufflex collars look worse after one week of use than the old DayGlow collars did after 1.5 years. The material is much softer and attracts dirt. My wife said I thought you ordered the dogs new collars? I did, those are a week old. I will have to reorder the DayGlow collars and keep these as spares.

"The collar material itself is great. The gigantic ridges on the underside of the collar where it is riveted for the center ring and buckle are horrible."
The collar material itself is great. The gigantic ridges on the underside of the collar where it is riveted for the center ring and buckle are horrible. They rubbed hot spots on my dog's neck within a couple of weeks, causing bleeding sores. Would never buy or recommend this collar until that issue is resolved.

Summary: Great collars nice feeling in hand while handling dogs loading/catching in the field. Mild stretching feel when lifting dog which I like cause I think it acts as a shock absorber.

COLLAR SIZING MADE EASY
These are NECK SIZE COLLARS which means the dog's measured neck size IS the collar size.
Measure Your Dog's Neck to ensure a proper fit.
Use a measuring tape, cloth tape, or a piece of string (and measure the string).
Measure your dog's neck where you want the collar to rest on the neck AND at the appropriate tightness.
Once you have a measurement, refer to the Guide below to find the appropriate size.
The neck size (NS) represents the measurement from the center of the buckle to the fourth adjustment hole.
You can adjust 1-inch longer or 3-inches shorter. Keep in mind that using the shorter adjustment holes will leave more collar strap extending past the buckle.
