You know your dog needs a collar (they can’t run around naked after all!), so what next? Like everything in our lives these days, you have endless options to choose from. Personally I think the smart option if you are going to spend the money for a nice collar is to get it personalized with your information. It is also smart to consider what kind of activities you and your pup want to do while wearing this collar, so your dog will be happy, comfortable, and able to live its life to the fullest.
Below are a few of our most popular collar types, and their recommended uses;
You never know when your dog is going to get out and our classic engraved collars help keep them safe. Personalize with your phone number, address, or let them know that your dog is microchipped. We have tons of different styles and colors to fit your dog’s personality. Choose one our canvas styles if you need something a little more sturdy, flannel that’s super soft, cotton that’s easy to wash, or linen for your fancy occasion.
This collar type utilizes a loop with a D-Ring that a leash can be attached to. When your dog is resting or not pulling this will lay somewhat flat, but when they do pull the collar will tighten. This can be a very good choice for dogs with small heads (such as a greyhound) that can easily slip out of their collar. The loop can also help dogs take cues from their owner more easily, as they notice the change in tightness when you are trying to get their attention. Easily add a martingale loop to most of our fabric styles, also available in chain form with our leather collars.
For the dog that can be a little too rough on their webbing dog collars, I really recommend this option. Incredibly sturdy, they will stand up to play with other dogs. I switch to this collar when I know my dog will have a playdate at a dog park or with another puppy. If your dog is the type to scratch up their buckles one way or another this is also a nice option as the name plate usually sits at the back of the neck so it’s a little harder to get to.
Our laminated cotton dog collars come in lots of beautiful prints and are a nice easier to clean option for the dog who tends to enjoy a roll in the mud from time to time. Wipe off dirt with ease or wash the whole thing (per our instructions). You will not have to sacrifice style for ease of use!
Depending on the breed and size of your puppy, this collar is a great option if you are worried that they will outgrow their collar in a few months. Super lightweight, this will be perfect for your pup that’s still getting used to wearing a collar. They go up to 10” and are a little cheaper than our standard Mimi Green collar, so when they outgrow them, you can transition them into a collar a heavier duty collar. This is also an excellent option for toy dogs that a thinner width is more appropriate.
With all the style of a leather dog collars, this is a vegan option that is also perfect for the dog that loves to swim in the lake with you or romp along the beach. If you have an active pup that likes to get dirty this is a great choice. They come in a number of styles, choose a name plate or a buckle or a reflective option for your nighttime activities!
Whether you like to walk your dog through the city at night, or you need to spot your dog hiding in the backyard, reflective dog collars help your dog be spotted and keep them safe. Should your dog accidently run in a street or whether it’s more for your benefit this is a style I recommend to a lot of people. Pair with a matching harness for even higher visibility!
