I just had a look at them and I see what you mean. I might have a look at them in a pet shop and seeif it would be right for simba.

If you are considering this option, then just go with the all in one leash and collar....like show handlers do. We sell a version called London leash. Same idea. Very soft nylon.

I have several of the collar/leash combinations and I don't like them. Again, it's easy for the dog to slip the collar part if you can't tighten the leash connection enough. You have more control with just the collar, and attaching a separate leash to it.

Found these online -- was just looking for ridiculously soft rolled collars. They have rolled collar buckle version and training version. Elk. Kinda pricey but I was intrigued by the training collar version which is similar to what was shown in nylon. I think they intend for limited slip with the extra buckle part?
