Great quality product with great hardware. I'm very happy with this collar overall, but you MUST measure. I have a 11 lb terrier mix and the mall fits him on the last hole. I just guessed with the size , but I'm afraid that the medium would have been way too big. Might just be bad luck with my dog's neck size.
The leather is awesome, and it's starting to build some character with "dog oil" and some marks from random scratching. Its very thick, which for me is great. With a small dog, most store bought collars look more like cat collars to me. It's a handsome accessory, for a handsome (albeit small) dog.
So why do I avoid the choke chain? Besides the fact that my philosophy of training is to focus on rewarding the dog’s good behaviors and removing rewards for unwanted ones until the dog forms good habits, there are many medical and safety reasons too. Not surprisingly, strong yanking on the neck with a chain can cause health issues. If the force from a dog pulling on a flat collar raises intraocular pressure, imagine how high that pressure must rise when you actually yank the dog with a thin chain! Even if your dog has no eye issues, the choke chain, is notorious at exacerbating airway issues. For instance it can worsen coughing in dogs prone to collapsing trachea (weak trachea that flatten more than they should) and affect the ability of dogs with small tracheas, such as Pugs and Bulldogs, to breath. Additionally, dogs may develop neurological damage when the corrections are strong enough. The damage, called Horner’s Syndrome, can result in changes to the pupil in the eye and nerve-induced lameness in the front leg. Lastly, even if you don’t use a choke chain in the manner described above, choke chains should never be left on an unsupervised pet. They can get caught on something and tighten to the point where they strangle the panicked dog.

So, I purchased this small Dog Collar Buddy for another reason than its intended purpose - Anyway, I bought it to attach to a small dog's jacket, behind the neck, so I don't have to put his harness on him. Small dogs aren't supposed to have the leash attached to their collars as their neck can be injured. Some coats have a ring on them, but mine didn't, so i had this sewn on. It is inexpensive and nice quality and comes in many colors. I may purchase more in the future for different coats. I was happy to find this!We have created a line of for the itty bitty hounds. 5/8 and 3/4 inch dog collars in your choice of , , or Side Release dog collar. This is the perfect size for the smaller as well as Min Pinchers and other tiny breeds.I like the collar buddy. It really helps trying to get a leash on a small dog with two tags on a small collar. My biggest complaint is that the loop is still so small that my leashes (I have mostly BIG dogs and use the heavier duty retractable leashes) are still difficult to clip into the tiny loop. Maybe I should have bought a larger size but then it wouldn't match with the collar and may be too big on the dog? I just wish the loop were a little larger.
