Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

    Who sells your favorite dog collars and leads? My pup needs a new one

  • #2
    My JRT wears one of these: http://www.smartpakequine.com/deluxe...x?cm_vc=Search

    And 90 pd mutt-zilla wears this one:

    Both have held up beautifully to wear and tear, barn life and copious rolls in manure, followed by soaks in hot water!

      About 4 pages back I asked about collars and got terrific feedback... "nice leather (nonPetco) collars". So many great collars! I too have a new pup but need to wait a bit for a splurge collar-she's only 8 wks. Congrats on your new addition-what did you get????

          Me too I remember that you lost your Jack recently-so happy for your new baby.

          Believe it or not, Land's End has a really nice leather collar - a Lab I know has worn it for 6 mos. and it looks great and owner gets lots of compliments.

            Don't know if they're going to be a favorite yet, but I'm going to try out a leather collar from Hogan Leather http://www.hoganleather.com/ fairly soon, as the Littlest Corgi has almost earned her first nice leather collar and Hogan should be able to do something semi-custom for me. I also saw some very nice braided leather collars at MD Sheep and Wool Festival last weekend from Foxfire Leather in WV, but they only have a price list, no website.

            My absolute favorite collar is the one that No. One Corgi has - it's a round (not rolled) leather one that was made in the UK - sadly, the vendor I got it from said that the man who made them retired... It's black, 3/8" and super soft and flexible.

              Thanks. We really love her. Made losing the other JRT a little easier.

                Oh my godfrey she's so precious!! I love the irregular facial markings! Is Jelly the girl you lost? She was beautiful--- reminds me of my dear departed girl. My new peanut is a bit more classicly marked---personality trumped markings. Though she does have a Cindy Crawford mole marking on her cheek.


                • Original Poster

                  Yes, Jelly was the one we lost. She was 14. I LOVED the brown ticks all over her body!!

                  I saw the video of your new pup. Adorable!

                      Like butter

                      Handmade, reasonably, priced, US materials. Arrives soft as butter. Wears beautifully. "Ultra lightweight" widths for small dogs.

                          What? Quillin hasn't been mentioned yet?!

                          Here is the selection o their website. I have my dogs in a 3/4" wide raised model with a name plate that they no longer list but is still available. The collars are BEAUTIFUL and well made and will last the life of the dog.

                          For leashes, I like the beta ones that the tackatack lady made for me. They feel great in the hand and are so durable!

                            For leather collars, I love my Quillin, but for "fun" collars...http://clarascollars.com/

                              There are so many nice collars out there it can be hard to choose. Many years ago a good friend gave me a collar that was from "her horse to my dog" so sweet but you know what, I loved the collar and my next whippet got one too.

                              The brand is Weaver. Yes, the western company. The collar is from the Rodeo collection. The first collar is atleast 5 years old and looks just as good as the day I received it. I got the dark brown one with the crystals. My pups look so good in them and we always get compliments. Just a simple leather collar with Swavarski (sp) crystals. So pretty. Not tacky at all. Just right.

                              Check them out. If you have money to burn check out Paco Collars.

                                Quillan can't be beat. Their leather is good, the riveted on ID tags are the best ever.
                                these are awesome for showing but I doubt they would stand up to daily hard use:

                                  A decent collar - like a good pair of shoes on people - adds an air of class to a dog - that's what I say. Worth the $ for years of pleasure. The large pet stores have crap.

                                      I ordered my dog a collar from Kustom Fit Halters (www.kustomfithalters.com) last year and really like it. It's held up great and it made in the USA. It looks like they are having a promo for free shipping right now.

                                        I agree!

                                        I have my dogs with me today and snapped some shots of their Quillin collars. Here is the collar and on the dog.

                                        Forgive me, as I haven't cleaned the collars in ages. They've held up beautifully. These are not listed on the Quillin website, but they will still make you one if you call. The collar in the photos with the dog is about 10 years old, and the collar on it's own is about 5 years old. They are heirloom pieces.
