I guess, unless I hear any different that I'll just put her on an old fashioned choke for the next couple of weeks until I can rely on just a regular collar for handling. The HS quick release has not failed me, just the regular. Took the regular because I couldn't locate the quick release from last spring.
Just a strange experience for me with the HS regular. I've read tons of posts and not heard of it before and for the life of me, can't figure out how it is just releasing and dropping mid walk with no pressure or relaxation applied. So weird!
