I need to get Jazz a new collar as she has grown out of yet another one lol! Which clasp is the best? Im worried if i buy one that clips together it may open if she pulls? ! ? Am i to worried and being silly i just need to ask
I'm not sure what kind of plastic clasp you're referring to -- none of the ones I've seen and used have ever pulled apart. Although actually, "pulling apart" might not be such a bad thing: it would serve as a safety mechanism, if caught on something the dog could get free.

I agree with Bob Pr., if you're concerned about your pup getting caught up on something and pulling then a plastic squeeze clasp (this is what I'm assuming you're talking about) would probably break easier than a metal clasp or buckle collar. We use a martingale collar on Remi that we take off when he's in the house but many people leave it on 24/7. The martingale helps significantly with him pulling (he puts his nose to the ground sometimes and just goes) and because he doesn't wear it in the house we don't need to worry about him catching it on anything around the house or his crate.
I do mean the plastic clasp and agree its does seem alot beeter if she gets stuck on sometime. I also take Jazz's collar off after her walks. Thanks for you great advice
I use the male/female clip kind with no problems, other than on an ecollar strap.

I know what your talking about. I've seen people have a hold of their dogs collar and the next second the dog is gone and they are holding an empty collar. I use a nylon buckle collar and Oona doesn't wear one in the house.
