Gun Dog Supply ~ Day Glow Center Ring Collar

Today we are reviewing a company called Gun Dog Supply. I have been ordering from this company for several years now and I really can’t say enough about what a great company they are.

The Company

As the name indicates they carry most anything you will need for your dog. They say, “We train our dogs with the products we sell.”

Their website is easy to navigate, and they have tutorial videos to go along with many of their products. I find these helpful in deciding if the product is right for my needs. Their prices are reasonable. They typically ship the same day you order because they stock what they sell.

So, let’s get down to the product we are reviewing today, the 1 in. Day Glow Center Ring Collar.

Product Description

They are plastic coated nylon, will not pick up odors and will last a long time. Collars are a day glow color which means they are easily visible during the day but are not a reflective material you can see at night. They have a flat buckle which for most of what I do with my dogs is required. The collar is riveted verses sewn for better durability. Big bonus they are made in the USA!

Every collar they sell comes with a free brass ID plate that will fit up to 4 lines of information,

  • 20 characters on top line.
  • 18 characters on the middle two lines (because of rivet placement).
  • 20 characters on bottom line.

And if you need to add more information additional ID plates are only $1.99.

These are the 19” Collars that fit 16-20” neck size.

The rivets are heavy duty but lay flat.

Fits very nicely, it is on the second to last hole so we still have three more holes to allow for growth.

The buckles are quite sturdy.

Center ring is heavy duty, ID plate is printed very clearly.

Our Thoughts

So, I chose the purple for Thalia and my niece chose blue for Zelena. On the ID plate I have my name, state, and two different phone numbers.  I added an additional ID plate that included “I am Microchipped, AKC Reunite, the chip number, and the phone number”. I just wanted to make sure to have as much information available, so I would have every possible chance of getting them back if for some reason we were separated. One was placed on each side of the center ring.

The website has very detailed instructions on how to measure your dog’s neck so, you get the best fit. There is also a video going over the collars key benefits and explains what the center ring is for.

Once I had decided on the collars, colors and information I wanted on the ID plates I gave them a call to place my order as I had a gift certificate. The gentleman that helped me was extremely pleasant and helpful. He made sure to repeat information back to me to make sure he had it correct. I received my order in four days, I love the quick turnaround time. The shipping is very reasonable, $5.95, but if you order $125 or more it’s free. Total for these collars including the additional nameplates and shipping was just under $25 for both. Where can you get quality collars for two dogs at that price!

The colors are very vivid and exactly as represented on the website. They fit the girls beautifully and there is room for them to grow without having to buy more collars. The material although plastic coated is not stiff.

So if you would like to check them out you can shop here and they have a Facebook presence here.

Red Dingo Vivid PVC Dog Collars #chewyinfluencer

Today we are reviewing the Red Dingo PVC Collar.


    Product Description

    This waterproof collar is easy to wipe clean and won’t retain any smelly odors. It’s made to withstand any type of weather, so it’s the perfect all-season collar. These collars are lightweight but strong and durable. They’re easy to adjust and feature a chrome-plated buckle and D-ring that won’t rust or stain your dog’s fur. Red Dingo’s Vivid PVC collars come in five bright, neon colors that are highly visible.

    Key Benefits

  • Made from durable PVC coated webbing that can withstand all weather conditions       
  • The perfect collar option for adventurous pups and pet parents, super tough yet comfortable
  • Collar does not retain dirt or hold odor after a long day of fun outside
  • Comes in a variety of bright colors for great visibility
  • Chrome plated hardware will not rust or discolor on your dog’s fur

Our Thoughts

I chose the collar in bright orange so I could use it on male or female pups. It seems very well made, I really like how soft it is compared to some pvc collars without being too thin. The buckle and D-ring are nice and sturdy. Modeling the collar is our little house guest Scruffy. She looks very pretty and if we were outside in the woods or high brush she would be easy to spot with this nice bright color. I like that it is waterproof so the dogs can swim with it on and we don’t have to deal with a soggy wet nylon color that takes forever to dry. So, all in all I think we will get a lot of use from this color.

We give this collar our highest rating…four paws up!!

Key Benefits

  • Sharp stainless steel
  • Ergonomic easy grip handle
  • Safety guard
  • Nail file in the handle

Our Thoughts

I was very impressed with the design and construction of these clippers. They were everything the description said. I noticed that the dogs didn’t mind these clippers like they did the old pair I have been using for the last 15 or so years. They fit nicely in my hand and are comfortable to use.

There is a safety latch to keep them closed when not in use.

OmegaPet (6)1They were nice and sharp so I got a clean cut. I couldn’t believe the difference on how nicely they fit on the nail and the guard kept me from clipping to much off.

OmegaPet (21)Titan was the foot model for this demonstration.

Titan usually fusses when I try to clip his nails but he was very good with these clippers. There is a small nail file conveniently stored in the handle.

The clippers did a great job on each dog!

We give them our highest rating…a four paws up!
