Default Collar Addicts -- Enter Here ;) Post pictures.

I have an official problem. Please tell me I'm not alone.

I did a lot of cleaning and organizing tonight and in the process, organized all of Jackson's stuff.

Decided it's absolutely ridiculous how many things he has.

Here's just his collar collection....

These are most of his "puppy" and cheap collars. He wore the red bones one and the blue stripey-looking one from Petsmart for most of his first year. They really smell and I probably should just throw them out... they went though water, mud, blizzards and all kinds of crap, also are fading. The Harley Davidson black one he pretty much wore exclusively for a while, then I got addicted to collars... Two of those were only $1 and the rest were all under, like, $7, I think.

His 'nicer' collars. All from etsy sellers except the Ella's Lead.

Holiday collars. I love the first one with the pumpkins on it and the brighter orange but it always seemed to bulky on him so he didn't even really wear it. The 2nd was from the $1 bin at Target (he wore it all of October) and the third Christmas collar sucks, I hated it, hard to adjust, too bulky, so yeah he never wore it.

Anddd... bandanas. Now most of these are from the groomer that I've kept (she always puts one on him after being groomed) but a few holiday ones I bought cheap.

Fetching Tags.

Let's not even bring up the 2 Puppia harnesses, the leather Choke-Free harness, his nylon step in harness, or his coats and shirts for the winter either. Luckily, I'm not bad with clothes. He's only got two winter jackets and a few funny t-shirts.

Sooo... I know there was a thread like this in the past. Please make me feel more sane. A Paco Collar and Collar Mania is hopefully on my soon-to-be list.

I am a broke collar-a-holic

Frodo hasn't had a new collar in almost a YEAR! I just rotate now between his green with blue sea turtles collar and his steel grey collar, with his collar mania collar on for special occasions
If I had money...I'd be dangerous.

Oh, I love this thread. Darn all you collar people and talking in the Fancy Collars thread. Now I totally want a Vegan collar in teal and like 3 CM collars that could be switched between Blaze and Lizzie.

Oh. And that Fetching Tag.....I'm doomed.

Now. Post more pictures!

I am totally collar addicted - I don't have a ton (yet), but a fair amount I think for a dog under a year of age who never wears collars unless she's out in public!

Quinn's first collar - still have it!

Quinn's second collar - just a Petsmart one.

Her Christmas one. Speaking of holidays, she also has a cute Canada Day bandana, but no pictures.

Then she got a turquoise Rogz one.

Then her Collarmania collars. The zebra one was a mistake - she mixed up the order. The correct one came soon after. It's turquoise nylon with a zebra nylon lining, with Quinn's name and our phone number embroidered in black. The zebra one is the same only the two nylon colors are reversed. Dally's currently wearing the zebra one and has got it totally filthy, which bums me out because it was so adorable before.

Then I think her Ella's Lead came next. This picture was taken in awful, low light and does not do it justice!

Then her Dogit collar - just a cheapie but I LOVE this collar. It's so soft and light (others would say flimsy, LOL) - perfect for just carrying tags in the summer and when she's in the water. I can't find a picture of it anywhere, but it's this print but the background is an orangey yellow and the flowers are pink.

She currently has two in the mail!

Her Ravenclaw one from Ella's Lead

And a martingale - no pictures, but it's with this fabric with a baby pink satin lining.

I also have my next two Ella's Lead orders all planned out. Next month I'll probably be ordering a tan leather one with brass hardware, super girly with turquoise rhinestones and stuff. The one after will be a more masculine cognac leather one with a cutting horse concho, with some amber rhinestones that will match both Quinn and my future boydog.

She also has a turquoise Kong harness, and a seafoam Mendota slip lead if that counts! Oddly enough we don't have many tags - just a Petsmart one and her rabies one that is on a Rubit clip that gets attached to whatever collar she's wearing that day. She also has a beautiful one from the English Shepherd Club that came with her papers, with their logo of an ES and a lamb on the side, but I don't use it 1) because it is so nice and 2) because the engraving isn't very deep and I'd hate to wear it out. I just made her a brass plate at work though that I'm hoping to put on a plain, flat leather collar if I can find one that I like.

eta: Almost forgot, my mom just got both Quinn and Dally light up collars for when they're out at night! No pictures though.

who never wears collars unless she's out in public!
That's the sad part. Mine never wear collars unless we go somewhere. I do put collars on when we go outside since I've been dogsitting in the middle of the exact same location Gavroche was found as a stray. Just in case I actually used it as an excuse to buy more collars...I got leather ones with their names and my phone number burned into them. They were only $9 each so of course they're not the finest quality leather, but they do what I need them to do. Gavorche's is green and Logan's is red. Gavroche's PERFECTLY matches his Ella's slip lead. I swear I get an eyegasm every time I see the combo lol. The bad part is since it's cheapy dyed leather the green comes off on his coat every time it gets wet...or slobbery. But oh well lol.

I LOVE Quinn's collection! She looks fabulous in turquoise and she always looks just amazing in the Ella's Lead collar. I'd say she's got a great collection

I think I am going to go with a cat collar from Paco Collars for Jackson. I really don't like leather to be too thick, the Ella's Lead one she made for Jackson is the perfect size. I think it's 5/8" wide but it's just the perfect fit. I love the tattoo one I got (with his name painted on it) but it's just kinda big so he ends up not wearing it alot. Plus the hardware is a tad large too and getting the tags on/off is a pain.

So anyways... thinking about this one from Paco:

Le Cheat - Leather Cat Collar - Paco Collars
What do you think for Jackson?

My only concern with a cat collar would be that you can't use a leash with it. If you don't use a leash with a collar anyway (I'm thinking you usually use a harness?) then it's nothing to worry about.

But anyway, I do love that pattern
