Shopping for Dog Collars

Shopping for Dog Collars? Read This Guide First!


Not surprisingly, we love dog collars. They are simply the #1 accessory to keep dogs everywhere stylish, comfortable, and safe. If you’re in the market for a new dog collar, you’re likely overwhelmed with the choices. What features and hardware should you be looking for? We know the anatomy of the best dog collars because we make them ourselves. Here are some things to consider when you’re on the market:

First, you’ll need to determine the size your dog needs. Every dog is different and every dog collar manufacturer is different, so stay away from recommendations based on breed or your dog’s size in another brand. Each manufacturer should have a clear size chart to guide customers with the sizing process. No matter the size you choose, your dog’s collar should be just tight enough to fit two fingers between the neck and the collar. This will ensure that the collar is comfortable but won’t come off.

Next, consider the materials used in your dog collar. Some collars are made of leather, which are very tough and durable but can be hot or uncomfortable when worn in warm weather or for long periods of time. We prefer other options like nylon webbing, which is very strong but lightweight, and cotton webbing and fabrics, which are great for everyday use but still very breathable. Embroidering your dog’s name on your personalized dog collar is a great fashion statement too.

Finally, you’ll need to determine the hardware you’d like. We recommend and use metal D-rings to keep leashes attached. Plastic buckles are a great lightweight option, but if you plan on changing the collar often you might choose a more durable material like metal classic or side-release buckles. We offer a choice of buckle on our collars to ensure that they’re a perfect match for your dog, and we also can offer laser engraving of your dog’s name and your contact information in case your dog or collar (or both!) ever get lost.

There are a lot of choices out there, but we’re proud to offer our customers quality custom dog collars with tons of options. With just a bit of research and planning, you can be confident ordering a dog collar that will be perfect for your pup’s needs!
