Do you notice anything a little different about this Buckle-Down collar besides Mickey, Minnie, and Donald (Duck)?
Yes, it's the buckle! It's made like a seat belt buckle. One click and it's secure. One press on its center, and the buckle is released.
The story behind this buckle begins about 30 years ago, when Ross Labelson was searching through a junk yard near his college campus in southern California looking for parts to fix his car. That was when the idea came to him that a seat belt buckle would make a great belt buckle. Since then, Labelson has designed and manufactured (here in the U.S.) hundreds of character and brand licensed accessories for people and pets. Leash and collar prints, for example, are licensed from Disney, Marvel, Warner Brothers and other popular entertainment companies.
My buds all love the Nightmare Before Christmas characters and here's a special cemetery scene from Tim Burton's Disney movie...
The Seat Belt Buckles are easy to operate, just exactly like a seat belt!

Even cats can wear the Buckle-Down collars. The collar sizes are all laid out in this chart....

And a matching Buckle-Down Nightmare Before Christmas matching dog leash is a must if you purchase a collar! Buckle-Down leashes come in 4 foot and 6 foot length and widths from 1/2 inch to 1.5 inches.
If you're into Dad-dog matching accessories, go all out with a matching Buckle-Down Nightmare Before Christmas Belt for yourself. Personally, I am partial to the Mom-dog matching Wristband!
I couldn't possibly highlight every pattern of pet collars and leashes made by Buckle-Down in this column. But I can refer you to hundreds of them on Amazon pages: collars here, and leashes here. Oh, and there are even leash splitters for those of you with two dogs you can find right here.
And I can tell you that pet owners review the Buckle-Down products very highly and wish that the company also made dog harnesses. (Hint, Mr. Labelson.)
