Default What is the most you'd spend on a collar?

I had this conversation with someone last night, who apparently thinks I've lost my marbles when it comes to spending money on my dogs.

My response was that some people buy/collect shoes- I like collars and leashes

So, what is the highest amount of money you'd consider spending on one collar? Elaborate

Most I'd spend is about 25. I think if I had dainty dogs, I'd be willing to spend more, but the girls are just into rough play and dirt collars just get ruined.

I chose "less than $250." I eventually want to get Chloe a hand tooled leather collar which will be close to $200.

For my size dogs (the largest has a 14" neck), unless it was a really special collar, I'd stay under $125.

The most I've spent so far is $100 (Chloe's Dia de los Muertos collar).

For me I can't see spending any more than 75. Seeing as I can get everything I want in style and quality for less. Sometimes MUCH less.

I selected less than $75. Not sure I'd ever actually go UP to 75. 60-65 is my limit right now - I paid about $65, I think, with shipping for the Paco collar and that was hard for me to do! LOL.

But I guess it would depend on the collar. Like, if it was REALLY really REALLY amazing... maybe I'd do an $80 one but I kinda doubt I'd pay that much.

Then again, if you asked me two years ago this same question, I probably wouldn't have paid more than $25, so I guess my tastes are changing and increasing too haha.

But honestly? My favorite collar, even though it's still a bit bulky for my tastes on Jackson, but material and quality-wise ... was a leather collar from etsy and it was around $35, I think. So, to me, more $$$ doesn't always = better per say.

I'm happy that smaller dog sized collars are cheaper than ones for larger dogs!

OMG yes this. I don't know what I'd do if I had a mastiff or something. They certainly wouldn't have as many as Jackson, but I'd probably spend good money for one really really good collar.

I can't see spending more than about $20-$25 on a dog collar unless I was given more money for the sole purpose of buying a collar with it. On Boo you can hardly even see collars anyways.

I get the foster pups' collars from the dollar store and they don't seem to mind! They have some cute ones occasionally too!

Also, thought I'd add, for the first year of Jackson's life, I always tried to get cheap things... ordered cheap stuff on ebay and stuff and ended up with a lot of crappy things that never ended up getting used, because... not just the fact that it was cheap in cost, but cheap in quality. So now I've learned to buy quality things and don't mind forking up the dough for something that's going to last him a really long time.
