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!

We have a boat & our Golden Retriever swims the entire summer. He also loves getting wet any way possible. His colors end up smelling musty so I'm excited to try this collar.
Pamela S on May 29, 2016
We choose this collar combo because our dog loves to swim and she also will try to eat her tags that jingle if she can. And ends up destroying them. So we hope that this will help with that and the smell that her other collars get from getting wet all the time. ð???

We live part time on a beach and I haven't found a collar that can stand up to the water and salt - just trying it out to see if it will wok!
Jennifer P on May 22, 2016
have used these collars in the past so I ordered one for the new puppy
ora w on May 21, 2016

Teresa D on May 19, 2016
Same as leash.
Max W on May 18, 2016
I already own two waterproof collars. I just ordered two more of these for my 3rd and 4th dogs. All 4 of my dogs go in water and mud frequently, the waterproof collars are easy to clean, and dry off almost instantly. The shape is more oval than round which concerned me at first but over the course of a year my dogs have done well and shown no signs of irritation. Love the look of these and get compliments.
Hilary B on May 15, 2016
Most of my dogs are swimmer and I don't like the majority of collars which end up smelling after a while. These collars are durable, love the fact, the info is in the collar and this company has the best customer service.
Susi C on May 13, 2016
I have 3 of these collars, one for each of my labs, and the are amazing!!! I got tired of constantly replacing collars because they would smell and get disgusting after the beach or lake. I was somewhat apprehensive about these collars at first because they don't look that comfortable, but after 4 years, none of my dogs have received any type of wear mark from them. The engraving is still clear too. I've constantly got people asking my where I got the collars from because they love them.
Shelby R on May 12, 2016
For basically all the reasons listed in the item description. Waterproof got me to the website and the personalization sold me.
Joanna D on May 12, 2016
Hoping that because the ID tag is affixed to the actual collar, it will not be able to come off as my previous 2 name tags did. At $30+ dollars a piece, that is $60+ dollars lost because two split rings did not hold the ID tag on. Hope fully this collar will solve the problem.
Camberleigh G on May 10, 2016
Have for my other dog and love it!!
Sarah T on May 10, 2016
My dog is so scared by the tinging of her metal ID tag. This ID collar will eliminate this problem and hopefully make her less sensitive to sounds.
Lynda V on May 8, 2016
I love that it's waterproof, with an active puppy I think this is a great idea!
Wendy A on May 8, 2016
I wanted a comfortable way to have my dog id visible to anyone without dog tags jingling.
katrina l on May 6, 2016
Scruff tags are very easy to see. You don't have to reach out to get information. It is visible instantly removing the chance of a very scared dog being able to bite the rescuer
Pamela Z on May 6, 2016

Jeanette E on May 5, 2016

linda j on May 1, 2016

Dona C on Apr 28, 2016
I chose this because of the word waterproof and maintenance free and odor free.
Kruawan S on Apr 24, 2016
Previously purchased another collar and had no difficulties with it. As it was a leather collar, the holes are beginning to show some wear as can be expected. Thus, decided it was time to purchase a new collar for our. "Girl".
Teresa M on Apr 22, 2016
It's great as it doesn't rust in ocean and tag doesn't fall off this is one for my second dog
amanda b on Apr 21, 2016
I have three dogs with this collar, I mean no brainer for the 4th dog
K.G. T on Apr 18, 2016
My dogs run through the woods and swim almost everyday. I was looking for a collar that would stand up.
Ken R on Apr 17, 2016
Durable long lasting hardware.My dogs are in salt water daily and these collars last.Worth the cost.
David D on Apr 16, 2016
Stella and I love to take hike in the woods we need Visible and durable and something we can wipe off. Let alone don't need tags hanging to hook on branches/twigs.

Jazmin B on Apr 6, 2016
Have had one for two years that still looks like new. Dog developed a medical condition so ordered a new one and added medication condition to the tag. Great product.
Tasha S on Apr 2, 2016
We live very close to the beach, and the dogs love to go running in the water. This collar wont rust, and will not smell terrible after being in the salt water. We also love that you will not hear them scratching, making the buckles clink together!
Aerohokie on Mar 30, 2016
Durability, first and foremost. Additionally, The vibrant colors remain strong for many years. Rather in water or in the bush the collar stands up to all the activities my dogs do. I especially like the ID part of the tag. It is quiet and remains very clear to read for the life of the collar. Finally, I found the price quite affordable for the quality of the tag.
Steve C on Mar 24, 2016
Durability and looks. Dogs always in salt water pool
Frank D on Mar 22, 2016
Nice size and selection of bright colors. Waterproof is important for a hunting dog. Looks like it is easy to read without reaching under the dogs chin.
Lanny R on Mar 22, 2016
This is the 2nd collar like this one I've purchased. They are easy to read and of great quality.
Amy G on Mar 22, 2016

waterproof, no tag needed, perfect for a dirty lab!
Kristy H on Mar 19, 2016
Our dogs swim in our lake and their collars get wet. With these new ones they stay dry and more importantly won't stink! And for goodness sakes people please put collars and tags on your animals!

good review
Priscilla C on Mar 14, 2016
waterproof, soft collars without the jingle of tags
Heather T on Mar 12, 2016
Wanted a soft, easy to clean, traditional style/color dog collar for my British Labrador Retriever with identification on the collar, not on a dangling tag.
GLORIA SUE H on Mar 12, 2016
I wanted waterproof collars for my springers who love water and integrated contact information in case they get lost because hanging tags always get torn off with their hunting activities. Everyone who sees these scruff tag collars on my dogs want them.
Wendy S on Mar 6, 2016
4th pack member needs collar. The other 3 have these, we live on lake and love that they are waterproof / smell proof

Candace B on Feb 13, 2016
My veterinarian's dogs have these colors and she loves them. I ordered these because they dont stink when they get wet like fabric collars.

Jennifer P on May 22, 2016
Can the engraved tag be reused with another collar? Thank you.
A shopper on Oct 4, 2013
BEST ANSWER: If your dog grows out of the original collar, we can take the nameplate out and put it into another collar for less than the cost of a brand new collar.
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.
Will these fit on 10lb dogs?
A shopper on Sep 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The small sizes should work for a small dog. Just make sure to measure your dog's neck before ordering. Pick the size that is closest to your dog's neck size.
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: Our dog is a skinny 11 lbs and he's fine with it. It felt heavier than it looks but I think that helps to not fall apart. Our puppy runs like crazy and plays at a doggie daycare with lots of other dogs but the collar is fine. The collar doesn't bother him at all.
My Labs swim in the ocean every day. Will the bucke
My Labs aim in the ocean every day. Will the buckle and tag hold up to salt water?
Barbara T on Sep 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, during checkout there is an order comment text box. Mention that your dog swims in salt water and we will use the corrosion proof stainless rivets. Chuck B. Staff
is this green that mint color in real life?
A shopper on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I did not buy the green one, so can't really answer your question. If you live in the Fargo area I suggest that you go to their location and look at the different colors. I bought the orange one and it is nice and bright and has held up well.
Has anyone found something like this but with the snap buckle instead of the metal buckle buckle?
Sandy on Nov 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Based on the thickness of the material, we have not figured out a way to make this with the plastic snap buckle - especially if we want it to be adjustable. Only our nylon scrufftag collars (which aren't waterproof) have that kind of buckle
Is it possible to have a QR or Barcode put on this instead of the text?
Shai D on Mar 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Shaiya, We actually have a collar with a QR code already built in!

I'm trying to decide which collar length our terrier mix needs. How small does the 12 inch collar go?
Bethany G on Dec 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 12" collar should adjust down to 10.5/11 inches.
I use essential oils for flea/tick repellent. Will this collar absorb the oils?
Alycia G on Jul 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It should wipe off fairly easily but it might take on a bit of the smell if the oil is strong.
My dog always seems to find a way to get her teeth around the collar or tags...how 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
I measured my dogs neck and it is 19 inches. What size would you recommend?
Patricia K on Apr 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If the dog is full grown, I'd go with an 18". If the dog is still growing, I'd get a 20"
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 got this collar for Sasha a few years ago and it's easily been the best one ever. It has 5 lines of engraving on the tag. Why only 4 now? Can I still get 5?
A shopper on Mar 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you're ordered a 3/4" or 1" wide collar - you can do 5 lines. 4 lines fits easier so we prefer that many. If you want 5, just request the 5th line in the order notes at check out.
About how large should I order a collar for my 65lb Chesador (Chesapeake/Lab)? She will be two tomorrow and we want to upgrade her collar to something that won't absorb the dirt from her rolling in the grass, or the lake water from swimming! Lacking a tape measure at the moment.
Kirsten B on Mar 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Our office Lab, River, is about 75 lbs and wears an 18". So, you'd likely be safe getting a 16" or 18" size. The 16 would adjust from 14-18" and the 18" would adjust from 16-20".
I'm getting a mini dachshund and am wondering if this collar would be too heavy for him? He will be 10lbs (approx.) full grown.
A shopper on Feb 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you were to go with one of the 5/8" sizes, you should be ok for a 10 lb dog. Just make sure to measure his neck before ordering so you get a collar that's the perfect fit.
I had a collar with a metal id with all the dogs information. After a few days he developed a rash where the metal id was and i had to remove the collar. Does the metal touch the dogs skin or is it on top of the collar?
Molly G on Jan 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: On this collar, the stainless steel nameplate would be touching the dog's neck. If you were concerned about that, you could look at the nylon collar with the same plate. On that one, the plate doesn't touch the neck. http://www.dogids.com/product/nylon-webbing-scruff-tag-collars/
will this collar allow me to easily put two holes in it, because I have an underground fence, and the transmitter needs to go on my dogs collar?
Diane L on Dec 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The consistency of this material is similar to leather, so if you have a leather punch or similar tool - it should punch fairly easily.
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
How much would 2 (two) collars cost. One would have the I'd and the other one would be a different color?
A shopper on Nov 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We sell the collars individually and they all come with the nameplate on them for $24.

We do have an option of this material with a safety ring or with a rivet on nameplate on the site as well for a slightly decreased price.

If you were to order 4 or 5 collars, we could do a custom price but there's no discount to order 2.
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

I have 3 lab mixes that are in the water daily and these collars are perfect for that. They are waterproof and "stink" proof. Love that the id tag is built right in with plenty of space for a lot of info. (No jingling at night!) Heavy duty buckles. The brown looks just like leather.
I have the yellow for one of my dogs and it does seem to stain easily. I haven't really tried hard to get the brownish dirt color off that is in places and it might come off with some heavy duty scrubbing but I think the darker colors are better.

Great purchase!
I worked with Wayne, and he was able to set me up with the right sized collar for my dog. If you have any questions, call them. They are great. The collar is wonderful and will last forever! I stopped looking at other collars and remember I bought the best! Looks very nice on. My dog rolls in stinky stuff and the collar cleans up easily. The tag is easy to read. People compliment me on it all the time and I refer them to dogids to purchase their own! You can't go wrong buying this collar!

My dog tells me this is his favorite collar ever! Appears to be very comfortable. The waterproof material is sturdy and smooth. We like the flat tag because it doesn't dangle and clink, and it can't get lost.

The best!
There are no better collars out there. We are hikers, kayakers, campers etc. We take our dogs everywhere and wouldn't consider any other collars. The id tags are great but the bright colors and durability are the things I like the best.

These have been a lifesaver for me. 3 large dogs on acreage with a pond, and these have held up beautifully, exactly what I had hoped when I got them.

It's been almost a year and they remain flexible and sturdy, no degradation of the material at all as far as I can tell, though there are a few scuff marks from the dogs scratching. I'm not bothered by that in the slightest, and they are still quite handsome collars.

The scruff tag is a far superior alternative to dangling tags to my mind. My dogs roughhouse with each other all the time, including tugging on each other's collars. Prior to the scruff tag, that meant me outside, pacing, trying to find a tag that had been pulled off more times than I can count. Besides being a bother, it always made me worry that should the dogs get lost, the tag wouldn't be there by the time someone picked them up.

The engravings are still clear and without any sign of wear, which is quite an achievement given how much abuse my dogs inflict on their collars. I was prepared to see imperfections build up over time, but they really do look just as good as when I got them.

Great for a gun dog!
ID is essential for any dog that hunts. We use this collar and another tag to provide the contact info if he ever becomes lost. As a duck hunting dog, he is always in the water and this collar has held up nicely, no smells or deterioration from being wet all the time.
