The Ruffwear Knot-a-Collar™ is a unique approach to dog collars. The low-profile design provides a clean and elegant climbing-inspired solution for an everyday collar. The all-metal hardware keeps dogs secure. Reflective rope keeps dogs visible in low-light conditions. Round profile settles comfortably in short or long fur and reduces matting.

My canine companion(s):

Great look, ok functionnality

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I like the look, the clip on the back, the visible band. I found out that the collar loose itself and Albert can remove it. I walk him with a harness, so it's not a problem, but it's good to know.

Dog's Name: Boone & Jax

Date of Review: 5/8/2015

We kick up our paws in: Bozeman, MT

My canine companion(s): Flat Coat Retriever, Border Collie Mix

Simple and Terrific

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

We added two of these collars to both our dogs about 2 months ago. With both dogs, due to the coat you cannot even see the collar so really there isn't much "stylishness", loss of 1 star. But for practicality it is lightweight, and doesn't matt their hair down. I don't believe it is the best collar for hooking on for walks. But we do use a harness for that anyways so it wasn't an issue for our family. We have never seen any knot slippage. The way the metal self regulates and doesn't roll is very sweet. I would put on a costco hair net and sell this on Saturdays, its great.

Dog's Name: River

Date of Review: 5/7/2015

We kick up our paws in: California

My canine companion(s): Border Collie

So Unique!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

River gets compliments on this collar ALL the time, She is a smaller border collie and the medium fits perfect. I especially love that due to the weight distribution of the collar the leash attachment ring sits at the back of her neck so it is always easy to clip the leash on with one hand even when she is laying down. She pulls hard occasionally and generally there is light tension in the leash and we've had no issues with it loosening. I got the blue one and I like it so much I am thinking of getting her the purple one as well.

Dog's Name: Holly

Date of Review: 4/29/2015

We kick up our paws in: Skagway ak

My canine companion(s): Goldendoodle

Love it!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

My girl has a thin neck and it's hard to find something that fits properly and looks good. She had a neck injury due to an attack and can't have something to bulky. It's great for hiking and light enough that it doesn't bother her. She isn't a puller so I haven't had an issue with her pulling the knots loose.

My canine companion(s): GSD mix

Love it for my bush dog!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

I love this collar! It's reflective and low profile, looks very comfortable for her. I work in forestry so my dog is off lease 95% of the time so I don't have any issues with it loosening. Wish it came in orange!

Dog's Name: Winona

Date of Review: 4/12/2015

We kick up our paws in: North Dakota

My canine companion(s): 1 yr red heeler, 3 yr labrador, 11 yr miniature dachshund

Love the look, needs improvement

Would you recommend this product?.: No

This collar looks awesome on our heeler pup, and we love that it's adjustable enough that we did not have to buy another as she grew. The issue, as others have stated, is that the knots do slip, causing the collar to loosen. We have noticed that this is less of a problem as the product has "aged" (gotten wet and dried over the past few months), but I still wouldn't trust this collar to hold in an emergency situation. If the product could be improved with less slip at the knots, we would definitely purchase another for our labrador, as we love the look of the collar and have gotten many compliments! Also wish you would bring back the green color that this collar used to come in.

My canine companion(s): golden retrievers


Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Love the look, love the collars, they are very sturdy. We are at the beach often all year round and the best part is that even after all the salt water swimming . . . . NO RUST! For all you people that wrote you don't like it because your dog broke the knot, or slipped out . . . . it's not the collar it's you . . . . .train your dogs! For an outdoors guy with his dogs, Ruff Wear makes the best products hands down!!

Dog's Name: Rossi

Date of Review: 3/29/2015

We kick up our paws in: Citrus Heights

My canine companion(s): Borgi

Great looking collar

Would you recommend this product?.: No

The sliding knots slip horribly on their own, to the point where the collar will come over my dog's head. The collar looks great and doesn't mat the neck hair. But it's an expensive tag holder in the end.

Dog's Name: Holly

Date of Review: 3/15/2015

We kick up our paws in: Portland OR

My canine companion(s): Lab-pointer mix

Stylish looking, not functional for leash walking

Would you recommend this product?.: No

I bought this because I so love the Knot-a-leash for it's lightness and reflective material, it is the perfect running leash. The collar looks smart on her and appears sturdy but the knots loosen with even mild pulling, and she has slipped out to visit friends on our walks/runs. The Quick Ring tends to snag on fabrics and I have come home to find her dragging a blanket around the house, attached to her collar. She was not happy, the blanket has a large hole, and I worry about the danger of a dog getting stuck on something (yesterday she got it caught on the side of an upholstered chair) and being injured or worse in the attempt to free itself.

Dog's Name: Bruno

Date of Review: 3/9/2015

We kick up our paws in: New York, NY

My canine companion(s): Blue Heeler/Boston Terrier Mix

Very nice design

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

Love the low-pro design. Keeps hair matting to a minimum. Sturdy metal for my energetic young male who is very active. Giving it 4 stars because even though the knots are tight, the collar will loosen a bit when pulled.

Dog's Name: Riley

Date of Review: 2/18/2015

We kick up our paws in: connecticut

My canine companion(s): Rottweiler and a Pitt bull

Not so great

Would you recommend this product?.: No

I really wanted to love this collar. My Rottweiler has a history of breaking collar buckles when she gets worked up over a squirrel or a leaf floating by. I thought this collar would work well since it doesn't have a plastic release buckle and it does look great and doesn't get caught in her fur. However, it loosens up on its own the second she tugs on it and has come dangerously close to just slipping off her head if she turns too fast. The knots do not stay in place once adjusted. While I like the minimal styling and ruggedness of this product I would not recommend it for any dog who is even the least bit rambunctious and certainly not for a large and powerful dog like Riley.

Dog's Name: Izzy

Date of Review: 2/11/2015

We kick up our paws in: fort worth tx

My canine companion(s): samoyed chow mix

Top Notch!!

Would you recommend this product?.: Yes!

After countless collars, and hours of brushing the resulting tangles around Izzy's neck area, we found this one. Its low profile allows it to do its job without trapping a lot of fur under it. Also love the included tag more hearing her walk around at night when I'm trying to sleep. All in all it may be one of my most used and loved Ruffwear products! Recommend to everyone.
