My personal preference is between $10 and $15 plus shipping. Most expensive was maybe $20 - before I found the awesome online merchants I use now (Love of Qwill on etsy and Trendy Hounds). I have 3 awesome inlaid ribbon ones that were originally $30 each, but were on sale for buy one get 2 free!!

My favorite collar came from ring around the collar, they look really similar to the ones you posted Dizz, I really recommend checking them out! They are only $23 and part of it goes to pay for greyhound medical bills.

several years ago i paid $86 + $8 shipping (US dollars) for one from ugly dog ranch. it is 4 inch wide 2 layers of ballistic nylon custom sized at 23 inches w/ a riveted brass contact info plate.

the same collar now is a standard production size & costs $20 before adding the plate.

I don't think I could justify anything more than $20-$25. To me they're just collars, my dogs only wear them so I don't lose them... so while I want something cute, I don't see any reason to spend a hunk of money on them. Petsmart quality is good enough for me lol.

I wouldn't pay more than $100 for a collar...

I used to think expensive leather/custom/fancy collars were for purse dogs, but they are actually WELL worth the price if you buy from a reputable source. Fozzie's leather collars were $80 & $60, but they both still look flawless after 1+ years. I used to buy standard rolled leather collars from Petsmart or whatever, and they would last 1-2 years. I bought Gonzo a $50 rolled leather collar online from a really amazing leather company, and the difference is striking. This one only gets better with wear, and is unphased by constantly getting wet.

If they're going somewhere that I know they'll get filthy, like the trails where Fozzie loves rolling in unidentifiable substances, I usually throw on Lupine collars... but only because I don't feel like spending time cleaning the leather.

I would never spend more then 25$ You can't see her collar, and all I want it to do it to do is to keep her safe, we have a harness to walk her with.

I would spend up to 50$....My guys only wear collars out to events and to the vet so I like to have nice ones...they wont get dirty because they don't have them on when they play....but I'm also always on the lookout for collars on the clearance rack too

This is probably the most expensive ...because it was custom made

Lisa @ is awesome

Those collars are STUNNING Dizz. I think you should go for the teal one.
Also, if you can, pop into Harrods, they have an amazing collar section! It is to die for.
