Recall of Petmate Nylon Reflective Padded Adjustable Dog Collar

Due to poor and incorrect assembly of this dog collar, innocent dogs are losing their life.

My six month old puppy, Rowan, was wearing this collar while outside playing in our yard with his brother as he normally would on any other day. He had been wearing a collar since he was two months old day in and day out. When I went to call my dogs inside, Rowan did not come which was extremely odd. When I went looking for him I found his lifeless body in the middle of our yard. Although my husband and I immediately performed CPR we could not revive our precious baby dog. His collar had been caught on the outer loop of the nylon which constricted the inner loop cutting off his airway and tragically ending his life.

This situation could have been prevented if this collar were assembled properly. The nylon collar fabric does not feed through both holes of the tracking which are present on the plastic clasp end. This allows the outer loop of the nylon collar to be pulled with little to no resistance by outside forces thus constricting the inner loop and cutting off a dog's airway. If the collar had been threaded through the second hole and not just the first hole alone prior to the material being sewn shut, such a problem would not exist. Rowan had this same collar before but in a smaller size. I checked his old collar and the same assembly flaw was present in that one.

I am petitioning PETCO as they refuse to publish any negative reviews which disclose this devastating flaw. As a distributor for pet products, I feel they have a responsibility to the consumer to allow reviews of how a product actually holds up in real life reguardless the rating. I feel the public needs to know about this as it could easily save numerous four legged friends everywhere. No other innocent animal or family deserves the fate that Rowan and our family has been stricken with.
