The company responsible for the Yellow Dog Design Personalized Collar is Yellow Dog Design Inc. and it is located somewhere in North Carolina.
It is basically a printing company that specializes in the use of dye sublimation/heat transfer in its production.
Since its inception in 2001, Yellow Dog Design Inc. has been involved in the designing and printing of fabrics for the ASI. Overtime, it added the production and design of pet collars and leads to its line of business.
The Yellow Dog Design Personalized Collar is a regular collar and, as the name implies, is personalized. This means you can ‘write’ on it whatever information you want.
Before we get into the review proper, there is this question we need to address.

Is The Yellow Dog Design Personalized Collar For Every Dog?
This collar is meant to fit dogs whose necks measure between 8 and 28 inches wide and between 3/8 and 1 inch high. This is a wide enough range.
It is a regular collar so it doesn’t come with any preferences and/or restrictions.
Features Of The Yellow Dog Design Personalized Collar
The Yellow Dog Design Personalized Collar is made of polyester that is supposed to be strong and soft at the same time. Your dog should find it comfortable to wear this collar all day every day.
The edges are carefully rounded to eliminate (or at least greatly reduce) the occurrence of fraying.
There are no background designs on this collar. It is basically just a plain collar with text on it. However, the collar comes in a variety of colors that you are allowed to pick from.
Word around town (and from the manufacturers too) is that this collar will last through bites and pawing.
The collar is washable, either by machine or hand. The colors should not come off so you can allow your dog jump around and roll around in the mud.
The text on this collar is neither embroidered nor engraved. Yellow Dog Design used a special technique that it simply refers to as ‘High Def’.
What this technique does is to bond the ink with the collar material. The idea is for whatever information you put on it to stay there for as long as the collar is.
Also, Yellow Dog Design says that since the ink is bonded right into the collar, it doesn’t come off and stain your dog. So no stains and no unnecessary chemicals running all over your dog.
On this collar, you are allowed to have a maximum of 24 characters on the collar. As you order the collar, you get to send the information you want to go on the collar.
Whatever information you write first will be written in large letters.
What we mean is if you are ordering the Yellow Dog Design Personalized Collar and you ask that ‘My Dog’ and ‘0000’ be written on the collar, ‘My Dog’ will be written in larger letters than ‘0000’.
So basically, write whatever information you think is most important first. One other thing is that the texts are repeated around the collar. So you don’t have the issue of the tri glide covering relevant information.
But remember that whatever you decide to write, you only have 24 characters to work with.
3. Clasp, D Ring And Tri Glide
We already know that with this collar you don’t need an ID tag, so unto the clasp. The Yellow Dog Design Personalized Collar uses a plastic buckle for a clasp.
The D Ring which is shaped like a ‘D’ is what you use to hook your dog’s leash or lead. The D Ring is made of metal and is sewn right into the collar. This should help it have an even longer collar life.
The tri glide is another plastic thing on this collar.
Is The Yellow Dog Design Personalized Collar User Friendly?
A regular collar is, more often than not, easy to operate. And so is the Yellow Dog Design Personalized Collar. It is basic and doesn’t require any special skills for its handling.
Pros Of The Yellow Dog Design Personalized Collar
1. Hi Def Customization
We think this Hi Def idea is a laudable one. For one, it ensures that the information on the collar has the same ‘life expectancy level’ as the collar itself. Which is kinda the reason people decide to ditch an ID tag for a personalized collar.
The Hi Def thing is also a better option than embroidery because embroidery can get frayed or just start pulling off. Also, the technology used for customization on this collar is one that makes sure that the ink used does not run.
One other thing we like about the customization is the repetition of the texts. This way, even if you have to adjust the collar, the information you need will still be visible on the collar.
The collar comes in a wide selection of colors. Enough that you can buy different colors for all your different dogs if you have them.
The Yellow Dog Design Personalized Collar is meant to be a collar that can withstand the pressure, including dog bites.
Cons Of The Yellow Dog Design Personalized Collar
Maybe in a bid to save space or something, not all the text on this collar is large. As we earlier said, it is the first information that you send that is written in large. However, since all the texts are repeated, this shouldn’t be so much of a problem.
