Dap Collars

We had very good luck with the DAP collar, both with SA and with thunderstorms. When the vet put it on (to the tune of $35!) she gave us the extra piece that she cut off. Today, I got a new collar for him (from Amazon $19) and I cut off the extra, put it back in the bag and cut the clip off the old one. I discovered that the two pieces, together, attached with the old clips, will make a whole hew, albeit ghetto, DAP collar. These things are expensive enough that I am excited about getting three out of two. Am I the only one? Please tell me others have done this! Does it work as well as the whole collar?

I bought the puppy size, so I didn't have that much excess. I don't see why it wouldn't work just as well.

I am totally going to try that!!! We just got our girl one a few weeks ago, and it's working great, but the 35$/month is going to kill me! Thanks for the idea!

Those of you who are spending $35, order the small. It's plenty large enough for my 75 lb male. They're $19 from Entirely Pets and I usually have a discount coupon of some sort from an email (or you can find them on retailmenot) to defray the cost of shipping. I tend to order 3 at a time, but don't order the 3-pack as per collar the price is actually higher. :blink:

 

My concern with using the clippings is that they will be exposed to air until you need them, which is what ultimately causes them to only last a certain amt of time. That's 2 months for the first piece so I would be skeptical, but of course you shoudl be able to tell. If ti works for your pups like it does for Zuri, you'll know whether it's working or not. I have to change Zuri's every month almost on teh dot and if I forget, I assure you, he lets me know (by peeing in his crate).
