SOFT SLIPtm COLLARS
Our Soft Sliptm is a wonderfully functional and diverse collar. It's sturdy limited slip design is one that has been proven over the years by dog mushers. My personal favorite because it doesn't damage neck hair and offers more control than a regular buckle collar. Also very easy to put on and take off. A favorite of long coated breeds because there isn't a buckle to catch or pinch hair. If you need strength or control, this is the collar for you. Great for working "soft" or young dogs in obedience. Colorfast and machine washable.
FIT & SAFETY
The Soft Sliptm is fit just like any other Limited Slip design collar: It goes on over your dog's head (like the old choke training collar, or show collar) with the end or "live" ring to the dog's right. This is also the ring to which a lead is attached. Any tags should be attached to the other ring, the passive ring. When properly adjusted, pulling on the "live" or end ring will cause the collar to tighten around your dog's neck but not to the point of choking, while at the same time not allowing the dog to "back out" of the collar. For my own dogs I place the collar at the narrowest part of the neck, just behind the ears, pull on the "live" ring so that it snugs up around the dog's neck, then check to see that I can get a couple of fingers (flat) between the collar and the dog's neck. This way my dog can't back out of the collar, yet there will be no choking. If you have an escape artist and/or if this is a concern make sure, as you would with any collar, that you double check to see that the collar is snug enough. Fitting adjustments are easiest with the collar off of your dog. Again as you would with any collar, always check the collar after any adjustment, and if you have a coated breed check the adjustment as she/he is loosing coat or growing in new coat. With a heavily coated breed it can make a difference. If you have any webbing doubled be sure it goes to the side opposite the slip section or the collar will not slip and release. Any tags should be attached to the passive ring
