Aspen Pet Dog Slip Collar
Not for a dog that pulls
Definately would not have bought this collar if I had read these reviews first. My [97 pound] puppy is still learning how to walkon a leash and pulls a lot. Collar broke after 4 weeks. Looks great though, wish they came stronger. The plain choke collars are so shiny against Choco's brown fur, I don't want him to be blinged out, but I guess he'll have to be....

Love the look, but quality is slightly lacking
I agree with a couple of other posters about this collar possibly being more for looks than functional. Definitely not for heavy use!! I have both the pink and black. These collars look great, but one thing people need to know is that THE LINKS ARE NOT WELDED like they are on many choke chains. They are simply pressed together, therefore this collar is not as strong as it would appear. Please keep that in mind when purchasing for a large, strong breed. With that being said, I still think this is great-looking collar. Wish they made this with stronger, welded links and offered more sizes and colors. I would love to have a purple one.

Physically appealing, but not for unruly pets
This collar serves more of an aesthetic purpose. It's not designed for training purposes. It is very cute and while it looks strong enough, DO NOT depend on it if you are working with an unruly or untrained dog. My 80lb female American Bulldog broke/popped a little pink 24 incher and she only had it a few weeks. She is just beginning obedience, so she is nowhere near being fully trained. For a good, all purpose, dependable collar, try an all stainless steel like Herm Sprenger. While more expensive, it is definitely worth it. Save this collar for social outings or light use/wear.

Nice for a chain choke collar
Our dog wears one of these and also wears the martingale choke collar too. That way we can use either or depending on where we are with him or what control we need for him. I like leaving this collar on because its easy to get ahold of with your hands for when someone comes to the door or for in house training. Its a great color!
