    I really love the waterproof collars from gundogsupply but smallest width is 3/4.... the buckles seem pretty bulky and thick and too much for Jackson's neck.

    Anyone know where I could get a thin waterproof collar in 5/8" width or smaller AND fit a small nameplate? No big buckles! It's not the width actually that bothers me, def. the buckles...

    How big is he? Jason's dog has a gundogsuppy collar and he's 18 lbs with a 9-13" collar

    This is where I was going to buy from before I got the gun dog supply ones

    I got Didgie's ribbon collar from them and they were really fast on shipping and the collar was very well made. And they have lots of biothane colors!

    He's like 17lbs, but his neck is kinda fragile-ish. I like him in 3/4" width for leather but I always taper the buckle to 1/2"... bulky buckles annoy me on him!

    I saw the gundogcollar on Cricket this weekend, but didn't think to try it on Jackson's neck...

    I just can't tell if it'd be too big.

    Custom Canine Collars (on fb mostly) has biothane as narrow as 5/8", tho the colors are limited.

    Ohh really cute collars too! The buckles on the 5/8 look like they're the same size as the bigger ones on the picture tho?? That's the only thing that sucks.

    I guess it doesn't HAVE to be biothane, a nylon collar would do, but I can't seem to find one with a name plate on 5/8 or less.

    I was going to suggest the same :) I don't have any of her biothane collars (because I live in AZ...where there's no water....and if my water loathing dogs manage to splash in the kiddie pool I just have them go nekkid..) but I do have a tiny leather collar from her that is very well made
