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.
Pros.... Terrific collar for swimming dogs. No odor...easily wiped clean. Looks like leather... No color fade over 2 years. Con.... Collar gets stiffer and less pliable at around 1 1/2 to 2 years and shows minor cracking.

This was the first time we had ordered anything from GDS. We were very impressed by the service and professionalism demonstrated by your company. Our TufFlex collar arrived in the mail in just a couple of days. The quality of this item far exceeds what I would have expected for the price. We have received a number of complements already on how the collar looks on our Vizsla.

This collar is great. I have tried numerous collars for my dogs and none hold up like this one. The usually look dirty and worn within the first week. With a quick wipe down this collar is back to new. The name plates are also very nice.

This is the third TufFlex collar we have purchased for our family pet. I love the durability of the material and how easy it is to clean. The first collar we bought over 3 years ago is still in rotation.
Previously we bought the puppy sized collars and they have been great. Our dog is a terrier/dachshund/min pin mix and weighs about 15 pounds with a narrow neck and I've had to add a notch to each of his collars to give it a proper fit.
We were concerned about the weight of the hardware on the 1inch collar but thought to give it a try this time around. I had to make another notch on this collar as well but it fits great. The hardware isn't too heavy and doesn't swing around when he runs.
It's a great product. It gets lots of compliments and I recommend it and gundogsuppy.com all the time.

This is the second TufFlex collar we have purchased for our dog. Not to say that her first one wasn't doing its job-- it's still as good as ever. Got the second one just to have another color and be fancy. This is the best collar ever! A snap to clean, never sticky, colors do not fade, and the nameplate is solid. Love the deep engraving on the nameplate, too. Absolutely no issues with this collar.

The Tuflex collar I bought for my Australian Shepard is a great collar. I wanted something durable, waterproof, and that looks nice. It also comes with a brass name tag that you can customize yourself. I ordered the collar in brown so it would look like leather and it definitely does. The best part is it was $16 altogether. It was a great purchase and I will most certainly be buying other products from Gun Dog Supply.

Great collar, Durable, easy to clean. The nameplate is the main reason I purchased this. While hunting last year, another hunting dog got separated from his party and joined ours. He had two collars from Gun Dog Supply. All contact information was there and he was quickly reunited with his owner. That's when I decided I had to get one before the next hunting season.

I got one of these for each of my 40-lb dogs, and they are awesome! They look sleek and sharp and are holding up well. Easy to clean off when they get muddy, and they seem like they will last a long time -- especially for the price point!
The only thing I would be wary of is the size. They are ALMOST too bulky on my dogs, so I think the 1 inch size might be too big on a smaller dog.
The customer service experience was awesome, too. They were out of one of the colors I originally ordered, and they reached out to me almost immediately to get it cleared up. Shipped quickly as well. I will definitely give my business to GDS again! Love to give business to American companies, too!

The TufFlex Standard Dog Collar (1-Inch) is a perfect choice. It had a little overhang when I first put it on him that I was hoping that he would have a few inches to grow into it. He tried to chew on it, so I just cut off the end a little bit and sanded down the edges for a smooth finish; now it fits perfectly. It feels very durable with a soft hand. I would prefer a silver nameplate to match the silver hardware of the collar, but no big deal. I would recommend to anyone. Bright Orange is the way to go!

Great collar and nametags. The delivery was very quick. The material doesn't absorb odors like my old nylon and leather collars did. The only thing that it didn't have was the little plastic keeper that holds the very end of the collar up. I was able to salvage the ones from the old collars, but without those the ends of the collars hang down.

Great collar. I will definitely buy this collar again. Very sturdy and durable. Wide selection of colors. Doesn't stay wet or shrink after swimming, and cleans easily if dirty. Doesn't get or stay smelly.

This is my second collar from GDS, and I don't think I'll go anywhere else for a collar. Great durable products and the nameplate makes it that much better. This time around I bought an orange collar. It's great, but the only issue is that the orange is quite an orange. The color has a pink tone to it, and it's more of a grapefruit color. But overall, I'm pleased.

Collar itself is great and wonderfully priced considering the attached name tag. My only issue is that it retains odor. My dog got sprayed by a skunk. I was able to easily remove the odor from his e-collar and from the dog, but the Tuff flex collar still stinks after several weeks.

Collar, which attaches the buckle is turned under. The tab rubs the hair off of neck. Then, it rubs a hole in the skin of her neck, and she bleeds, and the wound gets infected. All because of the visual qualities of the collar on my bitch. I take the collar to the cobbler who drills out the rivets, turn the tab to the outside and sews it. All the time bitching like I slept with his wife. AND charges me $28.00! Seems like you, as a dog person, should know this.
