All of our custom made, designer dog collars are available with a metal side-release buckle. Why do we make our dog collars with metal buckles? Because our ALL METAL SIDE-RELEASE BUCKLES are far superior to all plastic buckles, and twice as strong as most buckles on the market today. Not only are our buckles extremely stylish and contoured for a perfect fit on your dog's neck, but they are also extremely durable and strong. Our metal buckles achieve average break strengths of over 500lbs, twice as strong as collars made with plastic side-release buckles - which start to break at 100 - 300 lbs. Despite the buckle's superior strength, they remain lightweight and sleek. Available in three widths: 1 inch, 1.5 inch, and 2 inch and offered in a gorgeous, high polished nickel plated finish.
