When the word “tactical” is applied to something it suggests that the item is extra tough, military related or has been designed to be stronger than the average product. Nowadays we have tactical pants, tactical backpacks and all other types of tactical gear. A tactical dog collar will be built with heavy duty and stronger materials than an normal dog collar.
When you are looking to buy a Tactical Dog Collar you are hoping to find something that can handle your “extra playful” dog. Other dog collars have failed you and now you will pay extra for something that not only looks like quality and durability but will perform for years to come.
Many options will present themselves as you begin your search. There are two main styles you will come across. The belt style closure and the quick release buckle. We are going to focus on the quick release style as this is what you want to be knowlegable about.
You will quickly find some nice looking options imported from China in the $25 range using a quick release type buckle. These buckles are copies of the Original Cobra Buckle made by AustriAlpin in Austria. This authentic load rated buckle will cost you around $25 just for the buckle and it seems like a great deal to buy this tactical dog collar you found for the price of buying just the Authentic Cobra buckle. Be cautious!
These collars will work for a mild mannered dog that will not put the collar to the test. But be aware that the imported buckles are known to break apart when you need them most and are not something to depend on if you have an aggressive powerful dog. The rest of the collar is not work anything if the weak link is a subpar buckle that is a mere copy of the authentic 4000lb rating given to the AustriAlpin Cobra buckle.
Depending on the hardware you can expect to pay at least $50 for a high quality Cobra Buckle dog collar. This will go much higher if you go with a Made in USA collar with premium hardware. These collars will generally not come from China because the hardware is difficult to source and Made In USA materials can only be sourced locally. The rings for the leash should be of metal and be able to withstand the constant and sudden impulses of a dog.
Miles Tactical uses Mil-Spec webbing that can only be made in the USA. These Cobra dog Collars come in the 1.75″ wide configuration and will use type 7 or type 13 military webbing. This webbing will be rated at 7000 to 8000 lbs. The premium hardware used in the collars is made of high quality 316 stainless steel that and has been thoughtfully designed for use in our Tactical Dog Collars
When you choose Quality you are getting:
- Genuine AustriAlpin Cobra buckle
- Premium V-Ring of 316 Stainless

So choose wisely, because your best friends life may depend on it!
