    I would like to get Draco a new nylon collar. The one he has is stained and dirty from playing with other dogs. His other nylon ones are Riley's hand me downs. He has a nice leather one, but I really like nylon too. I am pretty picky though. It has to be well made, but not cost as much as a leather one. I want light weight, but not skinny (3/4-1" preference). Flexible fabric, so not super stiff. I saw somewhere sometime this almost webbed nylon that I really liked but cant really remember. Breathable, strong, flexible, nice design. I have pictured in my mind something different then the standard nylon ones, including collarmania and the like. Its not so much a print that I am looking for. I want snap, not buckle too. Can chazzers help me out?! Thanks!

    SpiffyDog has neat "air" collars that are made of softer, more breathable nylon. They do sometimes have sales where collars are $5 if you sign up for their emails.

    Try WhitePineOutfitters. They have the softest nylon collars ever, and they're reasonably cheap. I love them.

    Oh yea, White Pine is awesome - their collars are designed not to break coat.

    ^ This. If you are not looking for a design on the collar. They come in various colors/sizes and last forever!!! I brought Ivan home in one, and come July it will have been 8 years. Its still going strong with no signs of wear. It is dirty but thats because in almost 8 years I've never washed it. I have a feeling he will have that collar his whole life.
