Does your dog wear a collar? According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), there are more than 19 million dogs that wear a collar daily. Dog collars are used for handling, protection, safety and as a fashion statement. Unfortunately, more than 26,000 collar strangulation accidents occur yearly in homes and establishments across the country. For National Animal Safety and Protection Month, PetSafe is helping to educate pet owners about choosing a safe dog collar and avoiding strangulation associated with traditional collars.

PetSafe KeepSafe Break-Away Collar
Tenney Mudge is the inventor of PetSafe KeepSafe Collar. Her beloved dog Chinook, Samoyed and Australian Shepherd mix, was strangled by his collar. Chinook’s collar got caught and twisted and inspired Tenney to create KeepSafe Break-Away Collar. This collar is specifically designed to help save dog’s lives; protects a dog when he/she’s in the backyard, playing with other dogs or in the woods and fields.
“A survey of veterinarians, trainers and doggy daycares found that more than 50 percent have experienced a collar-related accident with a dog. The number one most common way collar accidents occur is when dogs are playing together and one dog gets snagged in the collar.”

The main purpose of PetSafe KeepSafe Break-Away Collar is to prevent dogs from getting entangled by their collars. The main feature of the collar is a patented break-away safety buckle that releases when pressure is applied, or when it gets caught on something. When a dog’s collar gets stuck on something and starts to choke, the PetSafe KeepSafe Break-Away Collar buckle releases. The collar falls off harmlessly and reduces the risk of injury such as strangulation. On each side of the breakable buckle, a metal D-ring is attached that can be used for ID tags or can be clipped together for a dog leash.
