Your Dog Collar Story: Chinook & Co.
Those are interesting. From reading through the website, it seems like you have to call to make an order. I wonder if they make them for toy breeds as well.

My only concern with that collar would involve it unintentionally coming undone and then the dogs are loose without a collar or identification tags. I do like this option, but are there alternatives?

Hi, I'm Charlie. And, you are?
