We just LOVE our Waterproof Soft Grip ScruffTag Personalized Dog Collars and know you will too!

If you like the elegant look of leather but insist on your dog wearing a maintenance free collar, these waterproof dog collars are perfect for you! Each collar is made with super durable Soft Grip poly coated nylon webbing and stainless steel hardware.

A Waterproof Alternative to Leather

Soft Grip material was originally developed for producing bridles, halters and reins for horses. It's very tough stuff, while also being soft to the touch. Soft Grip also holds its properties and does not crack in severe cold conditions. These Soft Grip ScruffTag collars are not only super tough but also waterproof and odor resistant - perfect for dogs that just love to be in the water all the time or love to roll in the grossest stuff in the neighborhood.  Plus, each collar is equipped with stainless steel corrosion-proof hardware. 

No More Jingling Tags

The ScruffTag Dog Collar design is trademarked by dogIDs and was developed to eliminate the need for a hanging tag. The stainless steel nameplate is built right into the collar and sits on the "scruff" of the dog's neck - making it easy for anyone to approach and identify your dog. Not only does the ScruffTag reduce the annoying jingle of your dog's every move, the tag is also riveted directly into the collar so you don't have to install and can rest easy knowing it won't come off no matter how high energy your dog is.

The built-in nameplate is engraved with up to 4 lines of personalized information of your choosing in one of our 13 font options. All dogIDs tags are engraved using a high power commercial fiber laser, meaning that the engraving is deep, easy to read, and won't come off. We guarantee the engraving for the life of your pet.

What if you move or want to change the engraving info on the tag for other reasons down the road? Just mail it to us and we'll install a new nameplate for $5 plus shipping and handling!

I chose this collar because my 9 month old boxer can't seem to stay out of dirt and mud. I was tired of buying replacement collars that just get ruined in a few weeks. Can't wait to get our new collar!

Our dog, Bodin, an English Lab, is outdoors a lot and loves to swim in the pool and creek on our 100 acres. We needed something that was durable,not easy to lose a tag, waterproof and good looking. This collar gets high reviews and seems to be just what we are looking for.

It is one of the only places I could find 4 lines to personalize my dogs collar.

need a waterproof collar as our dog is constantly in the pool
elizabeth h on Apr 25, 2013
We are placing this collar on the school's tiger mascot (stuffed animal) given out for school spirit each month. It is in memory of a former student who showed tremendous school student and in whose memory we show an act of kindness to an animal. Having the collar inscribed with his name is a blessing.
Cathy I on Apr 25, 2013
They look very bright and waterproof. Hoping they won't be smelly.
LAURA H on Apr 25, 2013
Need durable and waterproof collars for working Border Collies. We also cannot have tags dangling because the stock can hear them and tags can get stuck in fences.
Jamie J on Apr 24, 2013
Needed tag and old collars smell from the lake... perfect combination wish I would have thought to invent this
Melanie B on Apr 24, 2013
Our dogs have a lot of room to run around and the normal hanging tags kept getting torn off. Our dogs also have access to a lake so waterproof sounded like a great idea.
Jennifer M on Apr 23, 2013
Waterproof and one of my dogs likes to run away!

Lily F on May 11, 2013
I have a newfoundland who has long thick hair. I'm worried that it may pull her hair or break it off. Is that a problem with these collars? Does anyone have a long haired dog that uses this specific collar?
A shopper on May 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My dog is a husky mix, he's been wearing the same collar for 2 years without an issue. The waterproof material isn't rubbery, more soft than that. We LOVE it, he goes hiking, swimming, running through the woods with it and we still get compliments on the collar. The name plate is still legible and everything. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.
My active lab has a clip buckle collar right now. He also wears an electric collar that is only a buckle and it is always coming undone. Do you find that this collar stays closed, is it pliable enough to do that?
A shopper on Feb 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I purchased these collars for my working border collies. I had in the past purchased and really liked the English Bridle leather ones. This collar looks as nice as the leather one, and has a nice feel to it. I have the black ones, so not sure if the colored ones feel differently. But I really like this collar for many reasons. We own a ranch and feedlot where the dogs are constantly ducking through and under fences, where in the past have yanked off collars and tags that have got hung up in the fences. We have had NO problems with this collar coming unbuckled or snagging on anything. Another thing, our dogs are in and out of water tanks to cool off, and their collars still unbuckle and stay pliable. So far these are the very best collar I've ever used. I love that the tag is built into the collar, nothing to snag. We also use electric collars while they are wearing this collar, we take the electric collar on and off as needed, but this collar has never had the buckle come undone.
I've read a lot of people said the collars were heavy. My dog eats tags but is only 17 pounds (shih tzu-poodle mix). Would this be too heavy or bulky for her?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have both a 75lb dog and a 20lb dog and neither one of them is bugged by the weight of the collar- they have been wearing them for 2 years now.
My dog always seems to find a way to get her teeth around the collar or durable is the collar to chewing?
A shopper on May 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The soft grip material is very durable, but it is not rated as chew proof. About the only chew proof options would be a chain style collar. Chuck B. staff
Will the my dogs name on the plate be bigger if I don't use all the lines that are available? For example, if I only use 3 lines for my pets information and leave the 4th blank?
A shopper on Mar 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the few the lines the larger the text will be. Chuck B. Staff
Will my dogs name be larger on the plate if I don't use all of the available lines?
A shopper on Mar 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the text is larger if you have fewer lines.
Chuck B. Staff
I have two dogs- one neck measures 18 and the other is 20 inches. What size should I order?
Mary D on Dec 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We size our collars to the center hole on the collar, so a size 18 would fit a size 16 on the first hole, and a size 20 on the last hole. So order size 18 for the 18 and 20 for the 20. Chuck B. Staff
We have moved and need to change the address on our dogs collars. How do we go about this?
Annette Redhair on Aug 16, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Contact customer service to arrange for new plates in the soft grip collars. 800-720-8247.
They will provide the necessary information. Chuck B. Staff

St. Cloud, MN US Animal lover
I purchased two different types of collars on both my visits:

The personalized, engraved martingale collars are our favorite. I love all the color options you get for thread and collar when designing them. They are light weight, comfy and cute. Also, our rescue dog wasn't able to squeeze her head out on walks. At first she wasn't familiar with walking on a leash, and needed something to gently squeeze her neck when she pulled away, these collars did the trick. She pulled her head out and got loose one time with a regular collar bought at a pet store.

The waterproof scruff-tag collars are also great, we switch into these when headed to the lake. They are hardy, very bright, and easy to clean. The engraved plate is very easy to read and top quality.

We've gotten numerous compliments on both the waterproof scruff-tag and engraved martingale collars.
I wish there were more feminine color options for the waterproof scruff-tag collar.
The waterproof scruff-tag collar can be quite stiff at first when not being worn, and when first put on. It seems to soften and become more flexible once it's in use from body heat.
The buckle causes the collar to be shaped like an oval instead of a circle which slightly presses in on the sides of the dogs neck.
The material of the collar and the buckle make this collar a bit heavier than you'd expect.
I only have the dogs wear the waterproof scruff-tag collars when they are going to be in water, not for typical every day use.

This is actually our second one. We replaced the original only because the phone numbers had changed, and since our dog can't seem to memorize the new numbers, we had to get a new collar.

The color is vivid, can be seen a great distance (hunter orange!) which is pretty darn important in this area of Michigan. Our boy swims, goes through mud, heavy fields, and in the snow. The original collar had zero problems after five years, but he just needed some help with the new phone numbers.

I love that there is no tag to get caught on anything, that the information will not wear off after years of use, and that the materials is extremely sturdy. My boy is rough and tough, and the collar has held up fabulously.

This is the best collar out there. Future dogs will get the exact same one, no doubt about it.
A bit big in length. I measured, but it was still too long. Same with the first one. So, a handy dandy pair of scissors came to the rescue and it's all good. An awl was used to punch another hole, and we're off and running.

Cleveland Ohio US
Durable, waterproof collar that doesn't feel too 'plastic-y' or rigid. I like having clear identification without tags that make noise or could be caught on something. Customer service was the *best* - I ordered a custom collar that was a bit too small. I sent it back and they resized at no charge. Amazing!
I wish that the small width came in a 14" length regularly but I was able to special order one.
