Great collar for longer-haired breeds.
Love this collar. Have a standard poodle, and I keep him a little on the long side, in the winter. Unlike flat collars, especially nylon/woven ones, I never have a problem with matting around the neck, with this one.
The brown darkens with age, so the Havana is pretty-much black after 3 years. He’s grown into the next size, and I’m switching to oak bark. I am only getting a new one because he has grown to his full stature, and the first one doesn’t fit, anymore. Still in near-perfect condition, if a bit stretched and black! Will use it for the puppy, when he gets to be about 6-months old.
