Totally agree with this!

I've discovered that Jackson looks best in tan. And I think a lot of Yorkies/Silky's or other terriers with similar coloring look good in tan-ish colors.

Izzie can pull off most colours except yellow and tans and beige. She looks really good in purples, greens, pinks and teal.

I also like collars that match their coats too if they're leather. So Ripley gets brown, Keira black and Dance tan.
Saga is like Keira, she looks best in shades of pink and light purples. (Which is funny since *I* hate the color pink.) She also looks great in black leather, with brass. I find chrome or silver to be too cold for her coloring.

Nico's color is a leaf green. I also think that a deep orange would probably look good on him, too. I also like the way he looks with black leather and brass, the black compliments his mask.

All of my dogs were color coded, too.

Macie, dark brindle - purple/pink
Zander, red Sibe - Black or chain
Dante, apricot - dark Blue or black
Goose, black & tan - bright red or blue
Eve, merle - hot pink
Indy, black - pastel purple

Sometimes Eve and Indy matched or were switched up.

I need to do collar shopping for Zander. But he's so fluffy, red, and white. It's impossible to find many things that look good on him.

I definitely agree that blues and greens look good on red/orange dogs. Quinn has been put almost exclusively in turquoise since she's been a pup lol. It's my favorite on her. I also like her in a dark kind of raspberry color and I've recently found out she looks awesome in periwinkle too!

As far as leather color I like her in tan or a light oil
(matches her coat). I also have a reddish brown color collar that I like, but not as much. I don't think she'd look good in black leather. On Dally (blue ACD) I like her in dark brown or black - she's currently in a dark blue leather collar and it looks great!

I really like lime green on tri color dogs. IDK why!!! Fozz looks so good in lime green. Even though it'd be the obvious choice to get a light blue collar to match his eye.

I like royal blue or yellow on black/white dogs.

I like Elsie best in bright fire-engine red.

I am just saving some pennies up to buy my dogs new collars and I am trying to figure out colors. I color code too,
Robyn always wears pink,
Trin is usually blue but now she is wearing an old pink collar of Robyn's. She is black so any color looks great on her.
I am still deciding on a color for my new Saluki.
Here are some of the ones I am debating on. If I was rich I'd just buy most of them and alternate!
