For those of you who prefer the look and soft feel of leather but worry about water and odor absorption, this collar is the answer! These collars have superior strength and durability, high resistance to fading, moisture and odor absorption. They have an embossed surface for a very elegant look and are soft to the touch and provide a very comfortable grip. Your dog will appreciate the soft texture as well. The collars are constructed with spread rivets and nickel-plated hardware. These collars are made with a conway buckle, center-ring "safety" ring, and dee ring. Made in the USA.


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 third adjustment hole.
  • You can adjust 2-inches longer or 2-inches shorter. Keep in mind that using the shorter adjustment holes will leave more collar strap extending past the buckle.

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

Great collar
January 8, 2021
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.
ConsInformation on the plates could be somewhat larger.

Excellent Service and Products
December 28, 2020
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.

Nice collar. We waited quite awhile to get it, I guess shipping is slow. Had to buy another collar while waiting. But this is a nice collar. Just wish we had received it a little sooner.

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

Good durable collars
December 21, 2020
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.
ProsDurable, easy to clean
ConsNone really.

Great product
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.

Great collar! Upland hunting and it holds up well with good visibility.

The only collar I buy for my dog.
September 4, 2020
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.

Review for ORANGE 1 in. Mendota DuraSoft Hunt Dog Center-Ring Collar
October 11, 2018

I love this collar because when out in the field, the regular tags that you normally hang from the collar make to much noise. With this one, the name tag, which is securely attached, makes no noise. Also, the material quality of this collar is much better than the fluorescent material used in my dogs previous collar. I can see it lasting much longer, whereas my last fluorescent collar was splitting apart, which is okay, because now the dog and I have a new and better collar :)
