Center Ring Dog Collar

At dogIDs, we take pride in using quality materials at our workshop to build each collar. Our waterproof collars are made in our Fargo, ND workshop out of a durable, weather-resistant soft grip strap and corrosion-proof stainless steel D-Rings. Due to the current metal shortage, all other hardware is nickel plated.

This center ring dog collar is also specially designed to help keep your dog safe. The built-in safety ring is made to be a second pivot point on the dog’s collar so that if he is snagged on a branch or in the brush, he can work himself free. This design is used often by hunters or outdoorsmen with their dogs to prevent dangerous choking situations when free-roaming.

If your dog is always on an adventure, our Waterproof Center Ring Dog Collar is a great option. The waterproof design is perfect for dogs that love to get wet and messy on a regular basis. Simply wipe your collar off when it’s dirty and put it back on your dog. You will love the fact that it never gets smelly!

The mechanism of a Center Ring Collar or a Safety Collar is pretty simple. The two-strap ends can move 90-degrees away from each other. The ring also offers a convenient pivot point that allows the collar to flip over and roll off your dog’s head. The greater flexibility and ability to roll means this collar is much easier for your dog to back out of if they get stuck on a fence wire or tree branch. That’s important if your dog is running around in the heavy brush.
