Gear Review: Chaco Dog Collar & Boomerang CollerTags

In preparation for hiking and river adventures, I recently ordered Chaco dog collars and these flat ID tags from Boomerang Pets called "CollarTags". Both products have performed great during our recent adventuring and I highly recommend them!

First, the Chaco dog collars:
They are both the size small (11-16" adjustable length) and are the same webbing as the sandals. These collars look like they would be heavy, but they are surprisingly light, yet strong.  The main thing I like about them is that they don't get loose when wet and do not retain water and get soggy. They are also reflective, even though you can't tell here, but you can kind of tell in the photo below on Tulsi.  They only come in 1" width, which is fine for Indie and a tad too big for Tulsi, but still works fine for her. You can't tell in the photo, but Indie is actually wearing his collar! That's the trouble with fluffy Aussies, ha ha!

Stats (for fit comparison):
Indie: 22 lbs, Height: 15", Neck 12"
Tulsi: 18 lbs, Height: 13", Neck 12"

Boomerang CollarTags:
These collar tags are flat. I purchased these for our adventures because they won't get caught or snag on anything when the pups are running through the forest or swimming in a creek (in case there are sticks/debris in the creek).  The tags came quickly and contain a lot of information in a legible font -which I can't show you since it's my personal info. I will tell you it fits: dog's name, your name, phone number, and address. The tag is secure and comfortable for both dogs.

I am so glad I purchased these items for hiking and adventures! The reflective part of the collar is a plus!
