3/8" Choose-a-Fabric BreakAway Dog Collar - for small dogs
A very flexible rule of thumb for choosing width:
- 3/8" for toy breeds, under 10 lbs
- 5/8" for small breeds, 10-30 lbs
- 3/4" for medium breeds, 20-50 lbs
- 1" for large breeds, 40-100 lbs
- 1.5" for giant breeds, 100+ lbs
Sizing Inconsistencies: We are in the process of modifying all of our collar size ranges and size labels (S, M, L) to be more congruent across styles. You may see inconsistencies between our size chart, descriptions, and available selections while we do this. If in doubt, choose the appropriate length shown (8-13, 14-22, etc) regardless of size label (S, M, L, etc).
As always, Fox Valley Pet Wear will custom-size your gear to fit your pet for no extra charge! All you need to do is provide measurements with your order.**
** if your measurement and request-details align with one of our standard sizes, we may provide the standard size. We will use our professional opinion or reach out to you with questions.
One more thing about custom sizing...
Keep in mind we cannot add range to one end without sacrificing range from the other. Expect roughly 3" of range for small sizes, 5" for medium sizes, 7" for large sizes, and so on.

Choose-a-Fabric 3/8" BreakAway Adjustable Dog Collar is perfect for the smallest of dogs! This collar is recommended for SMALL dogs only. Clasp opens with just 5lbs of pressure, which is ideal for dogs less than 10lbs.
Adjustable collar features a unique plastic breakaway clasp that will come loose if your pet gets caught on something (fence, crate, heat vents, another dog, etc). Double D rings allow you to safely use this collar with a leash (although it is not recommended for unsupervised tie-outs).
For collars over 13" only: Fox Valley Pet Wear breakaway collars come with a proprietary buckle reinforcement to prevent accidental breakaways more common with larger or heavier dogs. Buckle reinforcements are removable, replaceable, and adjustable - instructions are included with purchase.
Choosing a Fabric
** Note: the collars shown in the photos on this page are construction examples only. Some or all of these fabrics may be sold out. Please choose your fabric print from our current available prints as explained below
⚠️SPECIAL NOTE⚠️ Since this is a 3/8" wide item, some of our fabric prints are too large to fit their images on such a narrow collar. We strongly recommend choosing small, repeating patterns for 3/8" collars to be sure the pattern is visible on the final product. Keep in mind that nearly all of our listings photos are of 1" wide collars. If you need help/recommendations, feel free to send us a message.
Choose your fabric choice(s) using the three "FABRIC CHOICES" photos. Type the names in the Fabric choices boxes. Thumbnail pictures are NOT to scale - to get a sense of how the fabric looks on a collar, use the search bar in our shop to search for the fabric name. Not all of our fabrics can be found this way, but most will be. ⚠️ Please include 1st and 2nd fabric choices in case of low quantities. Fabric prints may sell out without notice.
All Roka Pet Wear items have a lightweight (but STRONG) 2000lb-rated webbing core and triple reinforced seams. Each item includes premium nickel plated steel slides and D-rings.
Size & Width
Measure your dog's neck or collar per the photo. Choose appropriate size range & width. **Listed size ranges may vary up to 1/2".
If your dog falls between sizes OR is a growing puppy, please measure their neck or a current collar and include your measurement with your order. We will custom-size your collar, free of charge. Custom-sized collars will be adjustable in either direction, or in the case of a puppy, will only adjust upwards to allow the most room for growth.
A D-ring sewn in at the adjustment slide just for hanging tags! Also frees up space on your main D-rings for your leash!

Had this for about a month on a Kong 1.25 wide collar. Fits great no chance of it coming off without us taking it off. We got slate and font is easy to read and hasn't been scratched even with dogs wrestling and playing rough. Would definitely buy again down the road.
I was expecting fabric like most of the decorative collars, but this is the webbing so it should look nice for much longer! Really cute. I am sure I will get more.
When my friend told me forever ago that her poodle got strangled when their collar got caught on a fence I became worried about leaving collars on my dogs; however, I do like to keep them on because of the ID tags. Breakaway collars are the perfect solution. They can wear their collars and if they happen to get caught they won't strangle themselves. I like the collar I ordered for my pup and will definitely be ordering another one when he outgrows it. The shipping was fast and customer service seems great! I also like the piece of velcro (I think?) they included with the collar to make the collar harder to break off for larger dogs. It also gives instructions on how to cut the velcro to change the amount of force required for the collar to break apart.
These pet tags are absolutely beautifully engraved and the perfect size for my 1.5" collars for my dogs! Love the font and color choices! They shipped quickly and in perfect condition - thank you!
I ordered 2 collars with an add on for both and they both look great! We haven't had to rely on the breakaway part yet, but I'm glad it's there. We had an incident with other collars that was definitely scary. I like that these collars have a way to override the breakaway feature with an extra band around the breakaway part made for larger dogs (mine are 65lb and 85 lbs). I also really like the reflective portion of the collar and the engraved details. Overall these seem really well made and I'm glad I got these collars!
Love this company - they are my "go-to" for all my dog's collars - thank you so much for your professional yet personal service.
At first I ordered the wrong size, and the owner was so kind and understanding and I was able to exchange for the appropriate size for my 20lb cat. thus collar is perfect to hold a Whistle Go Explore! It was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!
Perfect collar for my very active and playful German Shepherds. So glad I found these breakaway collars. The collars give me peace of mind
I feel much safer now that my pup has a breakaway collar on, and weve gotten lots of compliments on the fun bumblebee print. Thank you!
The description is factual that they are huge, which you should expect if you're ordering one to fit a 1.5 inch collar. It goes right on, is curved for comfort, doesn't jingle, text shows up beautifully. I am VERY satisfied with this purchase, and will come back when I need another one!
The colors are beautiful and the construction is great. We had a near miss with a freak accident with our old collars and are so glad to find these breakaway collars
After one dog twisted through his harness and made a dash for the main road, I 100% recommend everyone get a harness to collar safety clip. I got the 5/8" and it was big when my doodle was 8 weeks old, but now that she's 16 weeks old, it's a great size.
