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

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.

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

  • Stamped brass plate

Awesome for water dogs
March 26, 2022
My review might be a little bias because I like supporting smaller businesses. I don't personally know anyone that works here but the orders are always right, quality of products they sell is top notch. The variety and pricing are both great! Keep up the great work Gun Dog. The collar is great because it doesn't soak up water and get nasty. They do a great job with the tag too.

I use this collar for all of my dogs. My Brittanys are show dogs as well as field dogs and these collars haven’t created issues with collar cuts in their coat.

Excellent Collar and ID Tag
February 14, 2022
I have bought this same collar for 3 different dogs, and it is first-rate. It is pliable and strong. The hardware is substantial. The brass nameplate and ID information are always perfect. I would choose this item every time. You will be pleased with this purchase. Highly recommended.

Great collar for Vizsla
January 10, 2022
Solid collar that looks like it will last for a long time. I've purchased many fancier collars for a lot more money but they wear out quickly. This one was reasonably priced, especially with a built-in id tag. The website also had good advice on what information to get inscribed on tag and how best to pick a size based on dog's neck. Fast service, too.

DuraSoft dog collar.
November 26, 2021
The collar arrived quicker than I expected, same great service as always. I have always used nylon collars. I didn't like the look or feel or plastic collars. I've also always used the center ring type collars but they weren't available in nylon so I gave the DuraSoft collar a try. I'm very happy with the look and the feel of this collar.

Just what my dark Catahoula, Roux needed! Now I can see her out in the fields! Had to replace an older collar(she found a dead armadillo) and I looked all over our rural West Tennessee county for a place to get a nameplate personalized for a collar! Found ya’ll, Thank you. The attached photo is Roux and Boone (who also sports a Gun Dog collar).

The new collar is perfect. Quality, fit, and finish are all spot on. Material is exactly what we wanted. We have ordered several of the brown leather collars but made a change with this one. Dakota loves the collar. He received it as a gift for his 5th birthday. Even my wife liked it. Thank you again for keeping the quality across the board.

Wonderful collar
October 20, 2021
We love these collars. It is only kind that we have ever used for our Mountain Cur. She is a "buddy dog" and we do not hunt her. The collar works great for walks; it is very easy to hook up her leash. We like the i.d. tag in case her nose carries her away. These collars don't retain odors like leather. The only negative is that they will stiffen over time and need to be replaced. We normally buy them in brown and tried orange this time. The color looks sharp on our hound.
  • Looks sharp. Performs well. Lasts quite a while. Nice i.d. tag.
  • They do stiffen over time.

We bought this for our red lab and it’s great! The material seems stronger than most dog collars you can find at a pet store. Highly recommend.

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.
