Filson Leather Dog Collar With Center Ring



By: Kimberly Lyons

Family pet. Competes.


This collar was purchased in late April/early May. It's been worn just about every day since then. It shows wear FAR beyond what should be expected out of a brass and leather collar for the three months or so that it's been worn. The leather is getting stiffer, not softer, and despite oiling it and keeping it clean, the brass is wearing on the leather at the buckle. The nickle hardware is already starting to rust, and the interior of the collar is almost coming apart.

I would not recommend this product to anyone. I am extremely unhappy with this purchase.

  • abstract: I've been fortunate enough to be included in the early design phases of the new SportDOG TEK Series Tracking System with Remote Dog Training Collar that comes out this summer. I've been involved with the design for over two years, and during the past few months, I've even been able to test the prototypes. This handheld 2-in-1 collar is designed to compete with the Garmin Astro GPS system -- a pretty tough job, if you ask me, as the Garmin system is simply amazing. Garmin hasn't had any competition since 2007, and based on my tests, the TEK is going to give Garmin a pretty good run for its money. The SportDOG TEK, which will be the only 2-in-1 unit on the market, does have a different spin than the Astro on GPS tracking. The SportDOG TEK has a training-based approach and focuses more on finding your dog quickly, whereas the Garmin approach is a little more GPS map or history-based. Although I was initially concerned about combining tracking with an ecollar, it's interesting to look back on what my initial thoughts were and how the system actually turned out. I've had a lot of fun working with this new product. SportDOG's done a really nice job of listening and adjusting and making a product that fits the needs of the consumer. The TEK is also incredibly versatile. That's probably the thing that's excited me the most about it. While I found both things I liked and disliked, I ended up being pleased with final version. The TEK has some features that we haven't seen before in an ecollar system OR a GPS tracking collar system, and it's going to really change the way we do things.
