Dog collars and harnesses are arguably the most important accessories your dog will have in its lifetime. And although many harnesses and collars are design to last, you will more than likely have to replace them at some point—whether it’s due to wear and tear, functionality, or something else that has jeopardized the safety of the accessories.
Every dog needs a collar. Regardless of the type of dog you have, its age, how active it is, or ¬how well behaved, a dog collar is the most basic and important dog accessory you can purchase for your pup.
If you are looking for a new collar for your dog, it may be difficult to choose from the many options. From classic flat collars to slip leads, each collar offers unique advantages. The martingale in particular is a gentle option that can help train your dog to walk better on a leash. Learn more about how to use a martingale collar, the benefits of a martingale, and how to find the correct one for your dog.
Choosing the right type of collar for your dog can be a tough decision with so many options to choose from. How can you tell what’s best for your precious pupperino? That’s where our team at Mimi Green comes in. As a company that designs and handcrafts all types of collars and dog accessories, we know a thing or two about dog collars.
Among the many types and varieties of collars, the two most popular are nylon dog collars and leather dog collars. But is one better than the other? There might be more to this question than you might think! There are a few things to consider when choosing collars.
I just wanted to give everyone fair warning, if it is your favorite pattern or you want a leash to go with your collar, now’s the time! I’d estimate that this collar will be sold out in the next 30 days or less.
Thankfully we should have some pretty sweet new editions to take Stella’s place. They are some big shoes to fill, but I think we have some gems this season! Be sure to keep an eye out!
I love these pugs. If you have been following us for long, you probably recognize Zoe, Zack and their little sis Zelda Pug. They are probably 3 of our biggest cheerleaders, they’ve been wearing Mimi Green almost exclusively for the past 4 years!
They belong to my friend Tracy, she says they are a pug gang but I’m not too scared 😉 Although, anytime someone is missing an eye I gotta wonder what happened to the other guy in the fight! The missing eye defiantly makes Zoe look mysterious 😉
What I love about these personalized collars is that there is no need for noisy jingling tags, but Tracy likes the look of their handmade tags so these pugs wear both.
I know it must be hard to choose between the plastic and metal engraved buckle collars, so I thought I’d put together a list about each of their qualities to help.
PLASTIC ENGRAVED PERSONALIZED DOG COLLAR BUCKLE:
- The plastic buckle is contoured, the metal buckle is not. (This is mainly why the Carlson Pugs are wearing the plastic)
- I like the look of the white engraving on the black buckle, it is really different and super good looking.
- The metal buckle feels really special. It weighs the same amount as the plastic buckle, but it feels more substantial.
- I like that the engraving on the metal buckle looks like the engraving on a dog Id tag. It just makes sense.
I think that either way you can’t go wrong. They are both really wonderful buckles and they are both super strong (which is very important in a dog collar buckle). My dogs are currently using the plastic buckles and we love them. I also have an engraved plastic buckle on my camera strap (pictures coming very soon — it looks SO cool!) with my named engraved. Tracy’s dad came up with that idea — brilliant, right!? I feel so happy every time I see my buckle with MY name on it! I imagine that my dogs feel the same way about their engraved buckles (well they would if they could read right!)
