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.

Great collar
June 16, 2021
Another great collar fro Gun Dog Supply! The center ring collar is a great safety feature..even though we are not hunting, Jeter is always romping through the woods. The collar is extremely durable, yet soft, it doesn’t stink after swimming, and the orange makes it easy to see him. I also love the brass tag on the collar…the regular dog tags always end up falling off.
  • Easy to clean
  • Durable
  • Doesn't stink when wet
  • Flexible

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.
  • Very durable
  • Good color
  • Stamped brass plate
  • Ease of determining size

Very Heavy

It's a nice quality collar but it's very heavy for a dog collar. Seems like they could use lighter weight ring.

Good looking collar
August 4, 2021
Looks like a nice orange collar w/ nameplate. I split and removed the circle ring and placed a gps tracking device on this collar. I'll keep the tracker deactivated for hunting season, but just have it on for a way to determine general vicinity of the dog, if needed. The combo of the collar and tracker looks nice, simple, and durable.

Great product and even with the tag customization it can very quickly. Gun Dog Supply is shipping way faster than Amazon these days and their quality is far superior.
  • Sturdy, well built collar that looks like it will hold up well in the field.
  • None that I can see now.

Soft and very flexible collar
June 15, 2021
Quality dog collar, well made, much softer than other collars and flexible . Longer than I thought, should have ordered a smaller size, but was able to adjust to fit comfortably around my dogs’ neck.

durasoft is great

This is a nice thick (like leather) collar, not a thin piece of plastic.
It is very soft, my short hair likes it too.
The name plate is exactly how I wanted it and attached very well.
We couldn't be happier!

These are the only collars I have used on my bird dog. They are extremely durable, more so than similar collars with a reflective strip. They last a long time on active dogs and are easy to clean.

Love these Collars
May 5, 2021
I have used these collars for over 10 years. Not only do they wear well they look good and the dogs don't mind them. They are a reasonable price and having my address and phone number on the collar is a great comfort.
  • They wear very well and have a reasonable cost.

The best hunting collar I’ve found on the market! The pliability and durability of the material is worth the extra cost. Highly recommend!

Well made collar stays soft and flexible
April 11, 2021
I've been happily purchasing dog collars from Gun Dog Supply for many years. I keep coming back because of the quality collars and especially the flat brass name tags included in the price. I have two dogs using these collars and highly recommend them.
  • safety ring on back of collar, stays flexible, very visible color
  • not available in screaming purple

Great All Around Collar
April 2, 2021
Collar is extremely durable and well designed. I like the O-ring and the separate lead snap D-ring
If it not for the name tag, we would have lost our dogs when they decide to “break out” for a few hours. What could have been a grave loss, was a phone call from a neighbor saying we have your dog.
  • Material will hold up for YEARS and color fades only slightly over time
  • Easy to take on and off dog
  • Name tag option that uses brass to ensure contact information will not become illegible.
  • collar is slightly bulkier than other collars with less features

Better than it looks
March 26, 2021
When I took the collar out of the packaging I though it looked like a strip of vinyl. With closer examination I could see it was laminated. It fit well. It seems durable and doesn't look any duller after a couple week of wear. The tag was correct and riveted sturdily. It shouldn't pick up the dirt like the woven nylon collars. It's also fairly flexible like leather.
The only annoying thing is that shipping is half what the collar costs. I didn't have anything else to buy.
  • sturdy
  • flexible
  • metal parts chrome plated so it shouldn't rust
  • permanent tag with phone #s
  • Shipping half what the collar costs

I like this style for my GSPs. The ring is easy to clip and supposedly easier for them to back out of if snagged
  • Nice 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.
  • Good quality.
  • Information 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.
  • Durable, color fast, no hot spots on dog from rub spots.
  • None at this time.

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: Bright, Name on a plate right on the collar so nothing hanging.
  • Cons: A little thick and a little heavy

Good durable collars

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.
  • Durable, easy to clean
  • None really.
