This collar is just that, a quick release collar. Comfortable and easy to maintain. Like all of our designs, it is made from genuine commercial upholstery grade Ultrasuede® fabric that we import from Japan. This soft, comfortable fabric is breathable, washable and colorfast. This collar is manufactured in the USA. We recommend your dog should always be walked with a harness. Our collars are designed for ID tags, charms and for decoration. They are not designed for pulling dogs.
