Many people dress up their pets in different ways, and while you may not necessarily be the type of pet owner who loves to put little dresses or jackets on their dog, why not at least spend a little more and buy a fashionable dog collar for your pet?

Buckles are usually made from strong, hard plastic but you can also choose a fashion colored, metal buckle as well.
If you own more than one dog or if you are not always able to supervise your dog, you may want to consider the newer style break-away dog collars. These collars are specifically designed to pull apart should your dog’s collar become tangled on something thus they prevent the risk of strangulation.They are designed in such a way that when a leash is attached, the collar will not come undone, but if your dog is not on a leash and there is a lot of pressure placed on the collar it will automatically snap open.This is a great choice for outdoor dogs especially, or if you have more than one dog.
Dog Collars Should Always Be Safe!
Safety stretch dog collars are similar to the break-away dog collars in that they actually stretch apart whenever a leash is not attached. Thus if your dog ends up in a life-threatening situation, where it is caught on a fence or a branch, the collar will automatically stretch and your dog will be able to easily slip out of it.These are also very attractive collars that come in a variety of different colors.
If you really want to personalize your dog collar, you may want to check out the stud dog collars.A leather dog collar with studs really will look great on your dog, no matter what size it is.You can find leather or vinyl collars in an array of different colors with studs.For the smaller, toy dog you could choose a dainty pink or light blue collar with small silver studs and for the larger breeds a leather studded collar may be more appropriate.
Even Bad Dogs Deserve to Look Good!
Even for the dogs who need to wear Elizabethan dog collars to stop them from reaching wounds, there are much nicer styles available than the old-style, single color, cone-shaped collars.
There are Elizabethan collars that resemble a thick donut when closed that are very effective at keeping a dog from biting wounds or stitches but that look fine. If your pup must wear a standard Elizabethan collar try shopping around for a colored collar.
Another idea, if you pup must wear one, is to buy a soft cone collar that will actually collapse down when your pup lays his head down but offer the same protection.
