    oh thanks for all of those links :)



    hmmm im wondering which would be best.

    a leather or a nylon collar half check collar!!!

    i have always used nylon collars.

    are leather collars easy to keep clean?

    do they last longer?

    a have already got a half check nylon collar - however it is the one witht he clip - so since i have had it quite a while, im paranoide it might break, so thier fore it is a perfect excuse to buy her a new collar. :)

    she has also got a new nylon collars - however the clip bit rubs and iratates her coat and skin.

    so thats why i want a half check collar instead :)

    Mine is the one with the clip too, I've only taken her out a couple of times with it as she is in season at the mo but it seems good.

    If I can find a leather one at a reasonable price (I don't like to buy off ebay and sites I don't know) I'll get one :D

    I'll keep an eye on her skin too, thanks x

    We bought a leather half check collar for my old GSD he was PTS 3 years ago when he was nearly 10 years old. My greyhound William sometimes wears it now it must be more than 10 years old as Beethoven was only young when I bought it for him and its still going strong.

    I usually only use ebay for buying things online, if another site then I use paypal as I have never had any problems with it and been using it for years.

    I haven't used a leather half check, I was going to but decided against it.

    I have used nylon and chain ones woth and without an easy clip, and full nylon ones. Out of these I would say I prefer the nylon and chain wth easy clip (like they sell in pets at home).

    Mainly because Dave broke his nylon collar :eek: He had been swimming and the buckle just came off! (It was a cheap one).

    So I put his lead through the handle and had to manage with him like that until I got to the pet shop, where I managed to find a studded leather one that fit :)

    I will end up getting him a leather half choke... Just gotta wait until I had this one a while or my OH will say something! :D Lol!

    No :) although I do prefer to use a slip lead than a half choke. I had a slip rope for Dixie but it was quite thick and burned my hands when she pulled!
    I got a thinner one, but it also was uncomfortable, so I just cut the handle off, and attached a D ring so I can clip a comfy lead on :D
