All buckles are not created equally.
Many dog owners prefer buckle collars for their dogs, but you want to make sure the buckle on your dog’s collar is safe. We’ve all seen collars with those cheap, plastic buckles that break way too easily, so obviously you want to avoid those!
The buckle collars from dogIDs are made with a quick-release side buckle designed for durability, safety and convenience.
The following are some reasons to consider a quick-release buckle collar from dogIDs.
Reasons to consider a quick-release buckle dog collar
1. The buckle is designed for safety. It’s strong!
The plastic side-release buckles on the dogIDs collars are designed to handle high impact and remain secure. You don’t have to worry if your dog is a “puller.” Loose-leash walking is always a work in progress, right?
The buckles are also tough in all weather conditions. Yes, even in North Dakota’s winters!
2. Additional safety for dog parks and dog daycare.
Sometimes in an emergency, you need to be able to quickly release your dog’s collar.
For example, there are awful stories of dogs getting injured when their collars tangle and twist during play. Sometimes the only option is to cut the collars apart, and that’s not always possible. (This is why it’s important to remove chain/slip collars when you’re not training your dog.)
With a quick-release buckle, you would be able to quickly and conveniently remove your dog’s collar in most emergency situations.
3. Quick-release buckle collars are convenient.
A collar with a quick-release buckle is convenient because:
- It takes just one second to pop it open or shut. This makes getting your dog ready for a walk extremely easy, especially if you have a squirmy dog who doesn’t like to hold still!
- Once it’s properly sized one time, it’s good to go (unless your pup is still growing!)
- If you have a dog with a blocky head like my mutt, it’s easier to clip the collar on and off vs. sliding it over his head.
And if you prefer a martingale-style, dogIDs has martingale collars with a side-release buckle as well.
4. Engraving on the buckle – no more noisy tags!
An added benefit is no more noisy tags when you’re trying to sleep or when you’re trying not to draw additional attention to your dog on walks. For example, if your dog tends to get excited around other dogs, it’s generally best if other dogs don’t hear his jingling tags. Sometimes noisy tags trigger a chain reaction of barking!
5. The collars come in different styles – martingales, reflective collars, etc.
You can order a buckle collar with a quick-release buckle in several styles.
Here are just a few examples:
- Personalized nylon buckle collar (with your contact info engraved on the buckle)
- Embroidered buckle collar (with your dog’s name embroidered on the collar)
- Reflective buckle collar
- Martingale buckle collar
