I just got off the phone with a woman who was PISSED that I dared to put WEBBING in the collar that I made for her dog, a 55lb lab, terrier crossed with stupid mix!!! (Her description of the dog breed, not mine.)
She thought the collar was too stiff, so she took it apart & found that it had webbing in it.
Yep. She wanted a "soft" dog collar, not a stiff or heavy one since she always walks him on the harness and the collar is for tags only so she doesn't get a ticket for no tags.
I used a medium weight webbing wrapped in cuddle soft cotton flannel with was lined with interfacing for additional durability, then put the fabric she chose on top. All fabric was pre-washed and dried in the dryer.
This same webbing I use on my parent's 14lb. schipperke without issue.
