The Tactical Dog Collar


The Tactical Dog Collar

Seems “Tactical” is all the rage these days.  Tac-lites, tac-visors, tac-shades, tac-knives, etc, etc.  As a former Marine, I’m a fan…what can I say.  I love the idea and having crawled through the mud and muck for 16+ years, I know how tough some of this stuff really is.  Tactical dog collars…I wish I had thought of it.


You’ll find as you read through this site that I am a big fan of the Tactical items…it’s not just what they create and sell but they also test items as well. It’s always good to know that a Kong chew toy can withstand being run over by a 30 ton tank.  I’m making that up, but you get the picture.

So let’s talk about Dog Collars…specifically, the hugely popular Tactical Dog Collar.

How comfortable is the tactical dog collar?

Ask Fido.  But seriously…ask him.  Does he look like he hates it?  Our dogs let us know when they are wearing a collar they hate.  They try to chew it off (and often get the bottom jaw stuck in it), try to catch it on things…tree limbs, shelves, etc…to pull it off and, I swear, they talk to each other about it.  I cannot count the times our dogs have been playing and a collar ends up in the dirt.

How safe is the tactical dog collar?

Very safe – that’s really the main point.  The “caring for your dog” market is huge and growing and the folks making the tactical collars realize this.  They have created an amazing product that does a great job of keeping your dog safe. The collar will not accidentally unbuckle.  It is thick enough so that you can tighten it adequately without worrying about it pinching or causing breathing problems, and no matter how hard of a puller you have, the collar is made strong enough to withstand it…Fido will not break free from this collar.  The weak link will be the leash (there are tactical leashes too!) or your arm.  The collar will be fine.

What can I add to a tactical dog collar?

How about a patch with your furry friends name on it?  How about a badge of honor…you decide what it says.  The options are (almost) limitless.
