We love it. No rubbing or chafing on her neck. A smooth round collar is the best way to go for dog comfort. I would never get a different one than this.

Don't buy this collar!!
I am a serious dog owner and trainer. I bought the collar because my local shop was out of my dog's size in the collar I would normally buy. The only thing it's got going for it is that it is reflective. The first problem is that it is very difficult to tighten the collar while it's on your dog's neck, and it needs to be tightened enough that the collar won't slip off, so you can't adjust it properly and then slip it on. The second problem is that the collar gradually loosens over time if your dog happens to pull on the lead. Finally, the hole in the metal friction plate is so tiny that you can't attach tags to the ring that is supplied, or any other ring. I fussed with this collar for an hour to attach the tags and fit it to my dog's neck, then it loosened up over the course of the day so that my dog could easily slip out of it.

I love this collar! It we is very difficult to find a collar that fits my dog as he has a large neck but he finds this one comfortable and it doesnt seem to get in the way.

Awesome but wears hair away
This collar great quality and looks awesome on my sweet girl. Unfortunately, after about three months of wear, I've noticed this has worn the hair off her neck where it sits. She's a german shepherd English Stafford terrier mix so her coat is a bit unusual. I'd imagine that this would work on thicker, longer hair dogs but sadly my Bella girl cannot wear it anymore.

Wanted to love it...
We really wanted to love this collar. Actually we did love it! Our girl looked so adorable in this collar. One day we noticed that she had lost a huge patch of fur on her neck. The hair loss was also making her neck super itchy, and she was scratching so much it caused her to scab over on part of it. We ended up needing to take her to the vet and get her antibiotics. We did not have this on her too tight and we never noticed her fur getting caught in it, but by the time we noticed she had already rubbed her neck raw. We really loved the look of this with her matching leash, we just cant risk using it anymore as we do not want her to have to be this uncomfortable again.

The Struggle is Real
I’d admit that not fully understanding the collar before I purchased it is on me. I didn’t realize that there was no detachment point to open the collar—the knots only slide to allow it to become larger and smaller. As a result, I can’t put my dog’s lay-flat tag on the collar (I realize I could untie the fisherman’s knots, but I am paranoid about not being able to secure them again as snugly as they came). In addition, my dog’s long coat sometimes gets stuck in the knots as I’m trying to adjust it. I’d think this would work much better on a short-haired pooch. I’ve always loved Ruffwear’s products, and will continue to buy, but I’ll be going for something else next time.

Great Collar
I like that it doesn’t wear down their fur like flat collars. It seems very comfortable for them. It is very strong so you can attach a leash to it with ease. It may not be great for dogs that pull excessively as the rope may dig into the neck more than a flat collar. I really love the quality hardware. Our Girls are hunting dogs, these collars work well at home and also in the field with their GPS collars

Very minimal and when it breaks in it's very soft rope.
