I’m sorry you had to experience that, how awful 🙁 I hope poor Milo and Stanley are doing much better now!

Thanks for the tip. My dogs both have the plastic release collars but I didn’t even think about a negative side to the metal kind.

I worked at a cageless kennel in college and my dog and her best friend, this little Corgi got in what the owner thought was a fight one day.  (They would never fight!)  They were attached and freaking out and it turns out my poor dog got her tooth stuck in Corgi’s chain collar.  🙁  They were both getting hurt (hence the freak out).  So sad!  He was able to get them apart, and my dog was so shaken up she sat on his lap (she is a large breed 🙂 in the office the rest of the day!  Definitely something to be mindful of!

I’m very sorry that this happened, but thank you for sharing! I was just looking for a new collar for my dog and was wondering whether there are pros and cons to the different closure devices on the collars. I hope your pups will recover quickly!

Oh how awful! We have always used plastic buckle ones because if the dog gets caught on something while running through the woods, the plastic will break if the dog is really struggling.

Wow I never thought of that.  One of our dogs has a plastic release and the other a metal buckle (not on purpose, those just happened to be the collars the stores had when we bought each).  They are rough and tumble during play time so I can imagine this happening to them.  I think I’ll be getting a new one for my one guy.

I’m glad you were there to save them! We had the exact same thing happen with our two dogs except it was a nylon collar with a plastic buckle (maybe it would have released before something really bad had happened but I wasn’t going to wait and find out). It’s scary to think what might of happened if I hadn’t been home with them at the time. Our dogs never wear collars after that incident. We moved their tags to harnesses and have them microchipped.

Wow, sorry to hear!  I hope they’re okay. Our pup uses a harness to try to avoid anything like this. He is such a goober that I wouldn’t be surprised if this happened with his harness on though.
