So Strider's collar is looking really tatty and sorry after 4 years of use. It's getting frayed and I don't want to risk it breaking on a walk, so it's on to the great collar hunt! I really like the durability of the original collar. If Charlie didn't chew it up it wouldn't be fraying now, and it's a good combination of strength and flexibility. Not too stiff or floppy, so he can't back out of it (he can back out of Kaia's). Also looking for a 1.5" martingale, so if you guys know of any under $30 that are really good let me know! I like brocades. Leather is awesome but not expecting to find one at that price. Bonus if it's a collar that Kaia would look good in too. #1 I LOVE this for Kaia #2 #3 #4 ETA: Here's a reference picture of Strider with the old collar. He's red brindle with a white ruff.
