Looking to give Oscar and Fanny and updated fashion piece...where have you guys gotten your collars in the past?

I know about Pikoda, but where else?

Needs/Wants:
Buckle closure
Perhaps some kind of design on the main collar fabric area
Relatively affordable (not going to spend over $25/collar)

Help!

Aside from Pikoda, I also know of Stinky Dog Collars and SPOTless Designs. smile

I got one from Fidos Fashion. Coke looks good with orange and DH likes da Bears so I ordered a Bears collar.

No cool designs (that I know of), but we got ours at gundogsupply.com. We got reflective and waterproof collars and the selling point (for us) was that they have the tag info that gets bolted into the collar itself since Leyna kept losing all her tags and it was getting costly to keep replacing them.

All my dogs have Gun Dog collars as well. I've had two instances of dogs getting away and being returned directly to me b/c of their ID plates (first instance was when one of my dogs was being cared for by someone else, second was what I posted about earlier this summer when Coke panicked from fireworks, broke through our gate, and ran into a neighbor's house). When we go on vacation all our dogs wear their Gun Dog biothane collars with the ID plates.

I get mine from www.cozycritter.com

I have several, Kayos has pink daisies, pink butterflies, yellow bumblebees and red lady bugs. I change them out every few months.

Havoc has mossyoak, red white and blue paws, kokopelli and red hot chili peppers.

They have seasonal ones too. They are reasonable and very customer oriented.

Fraggle Rock Collars

I love this girl's collars!!! She has posted a lot of pictures of them somewhere else and I really love her fabric choices. She is DJetzel on that other forum which shall not be named. wink

Wow, poor Dante has a simple rolled leather collar that he's had for....oh.....6 years probably rofl
He does have another fancier leather collar that I love but it's hard to buckle and unbuckle so he doesn't wear that one as much

I would suggest checking out etsy.com
Lots of cool stuff there. I got an awesome dog collar from Paco Collars but they are more expensive.

This one on Etsy has cool stuff:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/Pugs2Persians?section_id=7688004
Chip would like one with racing flames. For army members (who else would or should get those?) they also have collars made of ACU fabric.

For my own dogs, I stick to top quality rolled leather buckle collars. Hand rolled is better than machine rolled which are split and folded, leaving the end strips unfolded and wider, and are made of stiffer leather. Top leather, and the strip with the buckle as slim as the whole collar:
http://www.hoganleather.com/store/products/2_collars/page/1/

I love looking at my dogs best without collars, and the minimalist rolled leather in matching colors (dark tobacco for Feli, natural for Chip) come closest. I find that the quality and the initial investment pays off. I have had my current German Polizei- und Schutzhund leather leash for about 30 yrs. The stitches just ripped only now, after 30 yrs, and of course will be restitched. I do tack work maybe every other year, cleaning leather collars and leashes with saddle soap that also keeps the leather very pliable.

http://www.ldsleather.com/ made a custom leather leash for Chip, a Schutzhund leash for his size and weight. It is so well made, it will outlive me! They also make collars and harnesses.

I suppose nobody has any collar news in over two years. Lol.

I feel awkward posting this. You will see why later.

You have to check out www.studzdog.com

He makes the finest collars and harnesses in the world. Period. He is a one man show. Anything you get from him is crafted by him and him alone.
He will also make custom items that aren't listed on his site. Just ask him.

Who is he? He's my brother. Yea, it might sound like I'm pimping my brother's stuff. That's not the case. I'm trying to inform you about custom shop that you wouldn't know about otherwise. The best product for your dog.

This is why I feel awkward. I don't care for my brother and he hates me. I shouldn't be helping him. But I'm not helping him. I've seen his work and there is none finer. I'm helping you.

Just do your dog a favor and check it out.

Any questions PM me. I don't have a dime in this and I don't think he's in it for the money either. He has a true love for dogs.
