Doesn’t Emmett look totally hip in his new, Vegas-style “Lucky” red collar and lead, complete with a mini version of Buckle-Down’s signature seatbelt buckle? Since rescuing Emmett was a bit of a crap shoot, this design seems only fitting. We all certainly came out lucky in the end. With this conversation starter, perfect for the socialization class we’re taking this spring, now the world will know!

Emmett's Buckle Down Collar


Buckle Down - LuckyEnter for a chance to win a Buckle-Down ensemble for your dog! There are hundreds of prints and color combinations to choose from, offering you the opportunity to flash a taste of your own personal style when walking your pet.

Eric Swope, Chief Operating Officer for Buckle-Down, says, “We combined our love for dogs and some really cool graphics and came up with collars and matching leads that make a statement.”

Buckle Down CollarsFrom eye-catching and fashion-forward graphics that read “Born to Blossom” and Born to Raise Hell” to brands like Ford Mustang® and Lincoln ®, there is a collar/lead for every taste. I especially love the red and white candy-cane stripe for the holidays.

The lead is 4 feet long and an inch wide, a perfect length for urban walking and just the right width and heft for a comfortable grip. Sturdy nylon straps and the collars come equipped with a welded D ring so the matching lead can easily be attached.

Using recycled and refurbished buckles for many of its products, these new pet accessories are no exception. And safety isn’t trumped by trend. With my escape artist, I worried that the clasp might be more fashionable than functional, but the miniature seatbelt buckle is both, releasing with a push of a button and locking securely in place.

Buckle-Down makes all collars and leads in the USA and they retail for approximately $20.00 – $30.00.  They can be found at PETCO stores and specialty stores across the country.  More information is available at www.buckle-down.com or on Buckle Down’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/buckledownproducts.
