A 1″ wide Biothane Collar crafted with all Stainless Steel. You’ll love how easy this waterproof collar is to keep clean and your dog will love how comfortable it is around their neck.
This collar has 2 stainless steel D-rings and 4 stainless steel rivets. I prefer D-rings over O-rings on Slip Collars because the D-rings lay more flush against the collar. They don’t stick up and out as much as an O-ring.
This collar is not adjustable. It is meant to slip over your dog’s head and sit comfortably around their neck. Your accurate measurement is critical because these collars cannot be shortened or lengthened once made. Measuring tips are below.
When you want a truly waterproof dog collar, you want Stainless Steel. It’s such a waste to make a waterproof Biothane Collar and then use inexpensive plated or coated metal hardware that will chip, tarnish or rust. Unlike brass, Stainless Steel does not turn green or discolor the material it comes in contact with.
The buckle does not stick up on the ends but lays beautifully flat around your dog’s neck. The keeper ensures you will never have a pesky strap end flapping out or flipping up. The design and spacing of the hardware along with the weight of the biothane provide a comfortable, sleek fit with no bulky lump where the strap doubles over.

…and pssst…don’t forget a matching leash 🙂 I know, I’m such a nudge!
MY FAVORITE WAY TO MEASURE
Cut a 1″ wide strip of copy or notebook paper, lengthwise so it’s 11″, not 8 1/2″. Then cut another. Tape your two 11″ long strips together to make a 1″ x 22-ish” long strip. Place around your dog’s neck and tape shut. Let them walk around a minute and see if you like the fit. If not, adjust and retape. Make sure it can slip over your dog’s head. Make sure it doesn’t too slip over your dog’s head too easily.
When you’re pleased with the fit, not too tight, not too loose, cut the paper collar off, measure length, and use that measurement for the size you order.
Disclaimer 1. Don’t let them out of your sight while wearing paper collar.
Disclaimer 2. Don’t let another dog tear off and eat paper collar.
Disclaimer 3. This works well for my supple beta biothane collars. Probably not good for thick leather or super heavy collars.
