Rated 5 out of 5 by kwipper Works great for keeping tabs on puppy
Made well and standing up to puppy abuse so far. Good size for a full grown dog, but works well with five month old Field Springer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pechorin77 Solid bell collar
Great bell for keeping track of my vizsla out in the field. I dropped one star because it'd be great to be able to take the bell off and put it on his regular collar.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Uplands Unreliable collar
The collar webbing is only glued together, not sewn, to hold on the clip and the D-lug on the bell. And the 5/8? plastic clip is very flimsy. The collar falls far short of the quality, durability and accurate product description I expect from LL Bean. Essentially you?re overpaying for a decent bell, because I sure don?t trust this collar. The clip could break easily, the glue would fail if it gets wet or too cold, and then you?ve lost an overpriced bell out in the woods somewhere. If I?d seen this in a store, I would never have bought it. And check the picture with the hunter ? that?s a different, wider collar with a metal prong buckle. The packing slip says I?d have to pay to return this, too!

I bought this bell for our black Lab puppy - 16 months old. As we approach another deer hunting season, I wanted her to be readily identifiable as NOT a deer. The collar was easy to adjust and slides right on. The bell has a very pleasant tinkle and no deer sounds like that. And the big plus - at night, when it's impossible to see a black dog, I can now hear her. I highly recommend this collar/bell arrangement for any dog who lives in the country.

Rated 2 out of 5 by headingnorth nice tone but not loud enough
This is a nice quality bell, with a very pleasant tone. However it isn't loud enough in the field for 'older' ears, I had to return the bell for this reason.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LosAngelesChivas Pleasant sound. Effective
I recently purchased this bell for my lab so I can keep track of him.
When he is in my back yard and I'm in the house, I want to know where he is and that he is fine. This bell alerts me. It also served me well while camping in Tuolumne meadows. However, I have to take it off while I walk him in my neighborhood. It alerts all the other dogs who never get walked and they all start barking.
I really find the sound pleasing to my ears. Just like a wind chime.

Nice sound, good construction, dog took to it in one minute, now can hear him (English Setter) even 150 feet away in the woods; our second dog (Springer Spaniel) doesn't range, doesn't need the bell and isn't bothered by his partner's ringing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandmotherof9 Just right!
We have a deaf Great Dane, who loves to run through the fields around the house. Since he can't hear us call him, we have to know where he is at all times. This bell lets us know exactly where he is. He brings the bell collar to us when he's ready to go out!

I purchased this collar with the bell for my Jack Russell mix so other critters would be warned and hear him coming. So far it is working. The collar is up to LL Bean's standard and so is the bell with a very nice sound.
I would order it again if necessary.
Oh, and his newest nicknames are "Bell Boy" and "Paul Revere".

Helps me keep track of my new puppy. Has pleasant sound. Wish sound could be heard from a further distance (300 - 500 ft.? - Could be my "old" ears) . A ring to attach a lead and I.D. tag would be helpful
