    It was hard deciding which way to go. If I only had the one I might use a break away.

    If it's the plastic tag that clips around the D loop on the collar I just put the tag under very hot water for around one minute, dry it off and it comes off easy as pie.

    I usually have a keyring attaching the tags to the collar.

    I have an RSPCA tag, ID tag with name and two phone numbers (mine and hubby's), PetRegister tag, Rego tag, and a tag that has my business name and number on it.

    I was thinking of something more like a dog proof snap shackle - clip on clip off. The hot water isn't really available at dog school. And it would also be a PITA if I got a swim collar and had a break away collar etc to be transfering several times a day by keyring. I got some new stainless steel wind on rings (key rings?) from a boat bits shop (chandlery). The first ones were starting to lose their grip. The new ones are extremely difficult to get on and off, but that's what I wanted I suppose.

    You can get minature carabina's from places like BCF with a wind on lock, would that be something closer to what you're after?

    Having said that though I sometimes take Taya's collar off at night. But even then I'm a bit paranoid - 'what if something happens?' lol

    If someone finds your dog and it has a collar & ID it will make it's way home to you faster.

    I always find it annoying when I see strays with no collar - makes it very hard to keep hold of them.
    I hate finding Collar less Strays.
    A collar with ID means I could just drop the pooch off at its house with a note.
    Instead I drive them to the Vets to get Scanned that are a 15 min drive away. Then its up to the vet to get in touch with the owners.
    A cat started living in our front yard and after a week I took it to the vets and it only lived 2 streets down (probably 200ish metres in a straighht line..)
    Very Frustrating..

    I think the carbiner with the wind up might work - I will try it with nothing important attached for a while. Frosty and many of her play mates are great collar tuggers. I don't put her collar in lock mode - but they often do.

    I prefer Frosty to wear collar with tags all the time but there is a risk she hangs herself on the pickets on the gates. She's done it before, and she's been a lot more careful with those gates since but sometimes she gets really excited about something on the far side of the gate.

    Fortunately the time she got stuck, it was because I was standing out the front talking to a neighbour so we were right there to sort it before she could do any damage. At the moment the collar is so loose that she could hopefully slip right out of it if it happens again but I don't want to test that theory.

    Mine do not wear collars at home. Last time I did that...Sumo chewed off Ruby's collar (while I was picking son up from school). I was probably gone for 25 min and Sumo had a ball...little SH!T Also...they tend to get a "collar track" from wearing one all the time and I don't want Ruby to have one for her showing.
