PetSafe KeepSafe Break-Away Dog Collar

The new KeepSafe Break-Away Collar by PetSafe is a clever little device that can save animals lives. Sadly many dogs needlessly die every year from strangulation when their collar gets caught whilst their owner is out.

According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), upwards of 26,000 collar strangulation accidents occur each yearly in homes and establishments around the country

"A survey of veterinarians, trainers and doggy daycares found that more than 50% of pet professionals have experienced a collar-related accident with a dog. The number one most common way these accidents occur is when dogs are playing together and one gets snagged in the collar."
This has happened to us a few times as our two Malinois love having a rumble and can easily get tangled in each other’s collars. Luckily, we were around each time to set them free…

Of course, you should also never leave a dog tethered in your backyard unattended! Tethered dogs can wrap themselves around and around a pole or a tree: in their struggle to get loose, they could strangle themselves in the process.When tied incorrectly inside a vehicle, dogs also run the risk of hanging themselves if they try to leap out of a car window or from the back of a ute. 

Think of your dog as a small toddler... Inside the house your dog’s collar could easily catch on something like the cords of your venetian blinds or curtains. Removing collars before crating your pets is another good way to avoid this common form of strangulation. 

HOW DOES THE KEEPSAFE BREAK-AWAY COLLAR WORK?

Designed to prevent dogs from getting entangled by their collars, the KeepSafe Break-Away Safety Collar was invented by Tenney Mudge after the devastating loss of her beloved dog, Chinook, to a collar strangulation accident...

This innovative  collar features a patented break-away buckle that releases when pressure is applied or it gets caught on something

Most collar accidents happen when multiple dogs are playing at home, at the dog park or doggy daycare, or when their collar gets stuck on a fence, deck, crate, kennel, vent, bush or tree. This video really brings home how easily this could happen to any of our dogs...

If your dog's collar gets stuck on something and they start to choke, the buckle releases immediately and the collar falls off harmlessly. 

Rather than not wearing a collar at all (your dog then does not carry his ID Tag), the KeepSafe Break-Away Collar is a safer option, providing 24/7 protection for your dog.

I recently used it on a morning walk with Aramis, our female Malinois. Not being fully awake, I had actually forgotten to hook the lead clip securely around both D-rings. A quick change of direction and a small amount of pressure showed me how easily the buckle is released as the collar just fell off her! A quick snap later and properly fastened this time, we did resume our walk...

MAIN FEATURES

  • Protection against strangulation accidents and injuries
  • Safety buckle releases when pressure is applied
  • Safety buckle can be snapped back together quickly and easily for continued use
  • Can be used securely with a leash
For everyday use and walking your dog, simply attach your dog's leash to the two D-rings (unlike me!). When the leash is clipped to the D rings, the collar's safety buckle will not automatically release which leaves you in full control of your dog. 

Our only disappointment is that only the Black version is available in Australia at this stage. Other colours (Red, Blue, Purple) are available in the US market. It comes in 3 sizes to fit most dogs as per the guide below:

PRICE & WHERE TO BUY

For the correct fit, measure your dog's neck and add 2.5cm.

Made Easy Family Car Travel with Dog Car Travel

To make dog car travel easy get your dog used to riding in the car by taking him on short trips to start. If you get your dog as a puppy and anticipate it going in the car with you at all, start taking the dog with you in the car early in its life so he recognizes this as routine. The earlier a dog begins riding in the car, the faster they will learn how to behave on a trip.
Some dogs get car sickness. If your dog is one who experiences this talk to your vet. Like medications that can help people avoid getting sick in the car, there are medications to help dogs with this situation.

The safest method to transport your dog is in a pet crate. Also available are harnesses and seat belts to secure your dog while traveling, but most dog owners train the dog to sit on a seat and ride. Your dog may move from seat to seat, but do not encourage …
