RedHead Waterproof Dog Collar
Great blaze orange collar
I just bought this today 11/7/2010 for my 3yr old female beagle/shepherd mix. She is my "go anywhere, hunt anything" type of universal hunting dog, and also a wonderful family pet.
I wanted to buy a blaze orange collar for her, since this is now deer season, and I want to keep her safe, when I decide to switch gears and go rabbit hunting with her.
This collar is very nice, very well made, very durable, and waterproof too. I bought the 18" model and it fits her perfectly. The material it is made out of is just a little bit stiff (but not too bad) and will break in naturally. It is better than the nylon model too. I checked out the Redhead nylon blaze orange collar, and it was okay and all, but the big buckle on it seemed like it was too heavy for the type of collar. Besides... nylon stretches over time and is not waterproof.
If you have a hunting dog that you love dearly and want to keep safe in the woods and waters, you really need to buy a blaze orange collar.
Also, here is a photo of my dog Amber. She has the nose of a beagle, the smooth coat of a beagle, but yet has the size, face, and coloring of a shepherd. Vet also said she might be mixed with something else like a mountain cur or Lord only knows what. But her two primary breeds are beagle & shepherd.

i'm not sure why they would create a "waterproof" collar that doesn't have stainless steel components/parts. i take my dog in the ocean daily and i've only had this collar a couple weeks and all the metallic parts on the collar are already rusting. i'm guessing this collar will be not useable in a month or so. extremely disappointed. if you are really looking for a waterproof collar and your dog is active in the water daily, do not buy this product.

Good quality collar. I have a chocolate lab and this collar helps us see him at night when he blends in with the darkness.
