Has any one had any experiance with this new E-Collar strap? I like the idea but I wonder if it works.

I have 2 of them. They work great. Put it on and forget it, no more to loose or to tight. But always remember this collar is for training, as someone I know found out it is not for tying the dog out. I didn't last 2 minutes, and before you even ask it was not me.

There are several comments about these BB collars on the Product Review Forum.

Where can you buy one? The info on the BB website sold me. Anyone else use them?

I would do anything except put it on and forget it, the rubber bands are prone to break and your collar could be lost. I got one in the mail apparently from BB as it was promised to me as a consolation to some service issues I had. It is now in the trash where it belongs as it lasted one pull from a 6 month old 45 lb pup before the rubber band broke. I don't see a practical use, if you put a regular collar on properly it should not lose contact anyhow.

I have used it and like it but I think it needs to be revised with a stronger wire or something so that if/when the rubber bands break it doesn't fall off and get lost. Especially when training on the water!!

I took the little then plastic wire that comes with it out and replaced with with a peice of line off of a steel leader from a salt water fishing rig.
