If you are talking about soft web collar like this, they are made not to wear down the fur(originally were made for show dogs):

2" or 3" would be horrible on a coatie that would ruin his fur for sure.

mine are currently wearing 1" biothane collars because they go swimming almost every day in summer and the leather ones get stinky and it's not good for them to get wet all the time
Usually I use a 1" flat leather collar but I've been looking for somewhere with really good quality rolled collars

The rolled leather slides down into their coat so you don't even see it unless they have tags on. It's not intrusive at all to the coat.

Our current GSD has a wide nylon army style currently, but I'd not do that if he had coat. His coat is very dry and tight so it doesn't matter much.

Thanks for the link for a nice rolled leather. Sounds like rolled leather it is!

Chicagocanine: yes that's where I got his 1" collar from, and we have the leash to go with it, although their 1" rolled nylon isn't as soft as their thinner one so maybe that's where I went wrong. It's not supposed to damage the coat much, but he does have breakage.

Thanks, that makes sense. To me too. I'll keep his rolled "soft web" nylon one for when we go to the beach and such and I'm going for the rolled leather.

I just got my pup a rolled leather(even though he'll outgrow it in a month lol), it looks very handsome on him... well when I can see it through his LC that is. I was just getting him cheapy collars since he's a growing pup but those nylon ones just get so dirty looking, I will never go back!
