When it comes to dog collars, it’s a well-known fact that our furry friends deserve only the best. This doggy accessory will not only let everyone know that the dog isn’t a stray but also make walking the dog with a leash quite effortless. So, without further ado, here are the ten best dog collars you need to check out today.
1. Blueberry Pet Classic Solid Color Dog Collar
Made of durable nylon, this collar is the ultimate accessory for our pooch. It comes in a variety of colors, and the chrome-coated buckle is scratch and bite-resistant. However, though it has the potential to stay in top-notch condition for a while, the dog can rip it apart if it bites it too vigorously.
2. Soft Touch Collars Luxury Real Leather Padded Dog Collar
Featuring sheepskin leather and exquisite craftsmanship, this collar is certainly a fashion statement of sorts. It’s quite soft and comfortable, so it won’t bother the dog as much as some other, cheaper collars. Furthermore, the buckles are rust-resistant, and the design is quite sophisticated. However, it might not be the best choice for smaller dogs — it’s a bit bulky.
3. Rogz Utility Large ¾-inch Reflective Fanbelt Dog Collar
In order to stop a dog from running away, we need a dog collar that offers much more than a cute design. Luckily, this one is up to standard. We can push the three-pronged buckle through the D-ring, thus lowering the pressure a dog’s pull may have on the buckle itself. What’s more, the design is superbly tight, which prevents this reflective collar from slipping away, and it comes in a variety of colors. Still, the strap is made of nylon, so it’s not bite-resistant.
4. Woven Square Pattern Dog Collar by Friends Forever
Design-wise, this collar is something most dog owners will cherish. Friends Forever have their own homemade patterns, so there’s little chance we can find something as exquisite as this anywhere else. Furthermore, the collar is durable and lightweight, perfect for smaller dogs. But, it’s not great for training purposes nor for tying the dog outside. It can easily snap if the dog pulls on it too much.
5. Kurgo Waterproof Dog Collar
If our dog loves swimming and is not afraid to splash around, this collar is definitely essential. It’s odor and rust-resistant, not to mention waterproof, so if it gets soaked, it won’t be destroyed. What’s more, the strap is dirt-proof too. As such, it’s perfect for hunting dogs that don’t mind a thick collar, even though that means the buckle might stick out a bit at times.
6. Petsafe Gentle Leader Head Collar
Although not quite suitable for bigger dogs, this collar will allow the owner to gently pull the pooch with a slight tug. Since it comes with a nose loop, as well as nylon straps, it offers enough comfort for the dog and enough control for the owner. If the dog starts barking or running, all we have to do is tug it a bit — it won’t harm the pup in any way, shape, or form.
7. GoTags Reflective Personalized Dog Collar
Dogs that run away sometimes never come back, so it’s essential to keep our dog safe at all times. Luckily, this reflective and personalized collar is the best accessory and a must for all dog owners out there. We can stitch our phone number and the dog’s name onto it, and it’s also visible at night. The only flaw is the buckle — it’s a bit too flimsy for bigger breeds.
8. Illumiseen LED Dog Collar
No matter where the dog hides or how dark it is outside, this collar will let the owner know of the dog’s whereabouts. It has adjustable LED lights that glow in the dark and a rechargeable USB battery pack. However, the charging port is not as sturdy as we expected it to be, so the longevity of this collar is a bit questionable.
9. Mighty Paw Neoprene Padded Dog Collar
Extremely active dogs will thrive with this collar, as it’s not just strong, but weatherproof and bite-proof too. Furthermore, the strap is thick and sturdy, made of strong nylon with a neoprene padding. Overall, it’s the ultimate heavy-duty collar for rambunctious dogs, though it might tug on the dog’s hair a bit.
10. Onetigris Military Adjustable Dog Collar
Design-wise, this collar resembles a piece of military equipment. However, that’s its strongest advantage. It’s very durable and sturdy, and it comes with a metal buckle and D-ring that are suitable for heavy-duty leashes. The only flaw is the fact that it’s not resistant to bites and rust. As such, if the dog resorts to chewing it, it might destroy it fairly quickly.
