The foundation of the Operator 1 1/2″ Rigid Collar is mil-spec Heavy Scuba Webbing. Atop this first layer, we have sewn 1 1/2″ mil-spec Webbing rated at 1,000 lbs as well as 1″ mil-spec webbing rated at 4,000 lbs to stiffen the design and add the additional strength and support required by our most demanding customers. We took our 2″ wide rigid collar and reduced the width to 1 1/2″ for those who have limited amounts of real estate on their dogs necks due to the addition of E Collars, Pinch Collars, Slip Collars and other devices. This rigid design allows the handler to use the body of the collar to apply pressure to the points behind the ears to manually “out” their dog from a bite if he becomes unresponsive to your commands.
We use a 1″ ISC Klick-Lock buckle rated to 2,600 lbs in our otherwise 1 1/2″ wide design to provide an added measure of security preventing accidental un-clipping when the collar is grabbed at the buckle, yet still allows the collar to be quickly un-clipped in an emergency. A large Velcro panel gives you plenty of space to affix identifier patches or accessories. 2 available clip in point options fit any commercial lead attachment, including large diameter climbing carabiners:
1″ Steel V-Ring: low profile option rated to 4,000 lbs.
Soft Clip In: Inspired by clip in points found on climbing harnesses, it offers a silent solution that works with all existing clip in options.

Our 1 1/2" wide rigid design provides support to the dog's neck preventing possible injuries and it's rigid nature gives you the option of using it to manually "out" your partner from a bite.V-RING
Our large climbing rated V-Ring allows the handler to use any attachment option available, including large diameter carabiners.ISC KLICK-LOCK BUCKLES
The Klick-Lock Buckle is redundant, meaning both sides have to be depressed to release the buckle and the release buttons are recessed which prevents accidental unclipping.
Our large 8" x 1.5" Velcro Panel allows the handler to attach identifying patches as well as accessories directly to the dog's collar.
