Buying the best collar for your dog

As responsible dog parents we want the best for our four-legged friends and often ask what are the best dog collars?  With fifteen years of experience in hand-crafting luxury leather dog collars, we’re pretty confident that we know our stuff.  The answer is quite simple really.  The best collar for your dog is one that fits perfectly, is comfortable for your dog, is well made using good quality materials and looks great.  If you focus on these things, you’ll be sure to find the best dog collar.

Although the answer may seem obvious, the internet is a big place with lots and lots of choice, so how do you separate the wheat from the chaff?  In recent years mass produced, “fast-fashion” style collars have flooded the market, and while they may be cheap, you should ask yourself “Why are they so cheap?”.  More often that not they’ll be made using poor quality materials that will be mass-produced in huge factories in far flung places.  They’re not built with your dog’s welfare in mind, only profits.  Our advice would be to stay clear from fast fashion for your dog.  It may look cute online, but in reality will most likely fall to pieces very quickly, then end up in landfill with thousands of other poor quality pet accessories.

Instead, look for dog collar makers who are proud of their products; that have honed their skills over time and love what they do.  You may pay a little more than you would in large pet stores, but if you buy from a trusted, reputable collar maker, you’ll be buying a well made collar that will last an extremely long time.

Leather collars are often the best choice for your dog, as they are strong, durable and can be customised in so many ways.  You may be a purist who loves a clean, classic look, or perhaps you have a precious pooch and you long for a sparkling, pink Swarovski dog collar.   Whatever your preference, there will undoubtedly be a collar just perfect for your dog.

Many collar makers may have fallen into the profession entirely by accident.  Personally, I started hand making leather collars as I was so disheartened with the quality of collars available in stores and online for my own dog.  It was quite the journey reaching the point Petiquette Collars is at now, and one that has changed my life for the better.  If you’d like to read a little more about what makes Petiquette so special, and why so many people around the world only trust us to make the best dog collar for their fur-babies, read our story and browse the dozens of collar styles we custom make for your dogs.
