Good product but consider 2-collar rule, 2/22/2013 3:30:50 PM

This is a convenient collar for field trialing. You only need to own one because it's reversible, and you can flip to the other color at the line if you forget if you're top or bottom dog or it has changed last minute. It is good to have on hand. However, AKC requires no more than two collars on a dog. This collar obviously has nowhere to attach a lead and if you use a tracking collar such as the Garmin DC-30, it also has no good place to attach a lead. Therefore, it may be more convenient to get two of the wide colored buckle collars with a D ring so that you have an easy way to attach/detach a lead. Plus you can add a name plate to a buckle collar which is added comfort. As for durability, I used one of these for a couple years before going to a colored leather buckle and it held up well.
