Blue and Green Adjustable Breakaway Dog Cat Pet Harness and Leash Set with Footprint for Dogs Cats Pets in Spring Summer Autumn (Medium)
The magnets hold for general use such as pulling a dog into their kennel or trying to stop them, (they hold more weight when pulled from the side than if pulled from the top, like if the dog was caught on something), but with any breakaway collar, they will break off if pulled with great force. The collar doesn't break away if the dog is on leash, however, no matter how hard they pull (unless they can bend welded metal). The leash clips two D-rings together so that even if the magnet comes undone, the leash remains in place.
And lastly (and I cannot stress this enough), do your dog a favor and use a break-away collar. Like this , the buckle will release when pressure is applied and it will fall easily off the dog. If you’re in love with your current collar, at least have a break-away alternative on-hand for use near elevators, escalators, at the dog park, or at doggie daycare. And for dog’s sake, throw away that awful retractable leash.
The feature can be overridden when walking the dog on leash.
The Cozy Critter - Safety Breakaway Dog Collar
Buckle collars work just like a belt, except they go around your dog's neck. Breakaway collars snap together with a clasp, seatbelt style. The only difference between them is the way they close. Buckle collars are more secure, and therefore better suited for walks or traveling. If your dog gets separated from you, the tags on his collar will help him find his way back to you. If you like for your dog to wear a collar at home, the breakaway is a better choice. They are designed to unsnap easily if your dog gets his collar caught on something so that he doesn't strangle himself. Both come in a wide variety of colors, and you can match the leash and collar for a stylish look. Nylon is the most common type, but they also come in cotton, hemp, and leather. If your dog has really long hair, a rolled leather collar is a great option to avoid tangling. These are the only collars recommended for leaving on your dog at all times. All other types should be removed after training or walking. offers another solution: the KeepSafe Breakaway collar. This collar features a reusable safety buckle that will pop open when a sufficient amount of pressure is applied. The breaking strength of the buckle is geared to the size of the collar, so even the weight of a small dog is sufficient to pop the buckle of the small-sized collars. The collar also has an override feature so it can be safely used to walk the dog on a leash.Use a breakaway leash. Additionally, if your dog is on a normal leash, it can go on the opposite side of an obstacle. If the obstacle is something solid, like a pole or tree, then you might crash; if the obstacle is something living, like a human, it can be disastrous for everyone involved. (A 62-year-old woman in San Jose, Calif., was killed in 2009 when she was knocked over by dogs running on-leash alongside a bicycle.) For that reason, a breakaway leash is recommended. And because the risk of an accident or even just sudden stops and turns is increased, it’s especially important the human bike-rider wears a helmet.Designed to prevent dogs from getting entangled by their collars, the KeepSafe Break-Away Collar has a patented break-away safety buckle that releases when pressure is applied. If your dog's collar gets stuck on something and starts to choke, the buckle releases and the collar falls off harmlessly. Most collar accidents happen when multiple dogs are playing at home, at the dog park, or in doggie daycare or when the collar gets stuck on a fence, deck, crate, kennel, vent, bush, or tree. When you're ready for a walk, hook the leash clip around the 2 D-rings to prevent the buckle from breaking away.
