Though I agree with buying quality. BUT a couple of my most hard wearing things were got at dollar stores.

I'm not sure.

I would be willing to spend i guess up to $100 but I'm not sure i actually would if that makes sense. I have yet to see anything i think is worth that much maybe.

I can't see myself spending more than $30 on a collar, it's just something I can clip the leash onto for potty breaks.

Most I'll spend is $150... because that's how much Talla's collar will cost. (However, it WILL have hand-cast, completely custom brass conchos that cannot be bought anywhere else - so that's about half the cost!)

true. I guess it just depends.

Jackson has a collar from the dollar store that he wears a lot in the summer - it's fairly cute, like the width on him, and I don't worry about it getting too messed up or anything. Also use some ceramic food bowls that were from there that are actually really nice - and would've cost at LEAST $20 probably in a store like Petsmart.

So I guess it goes both ways, like anything. More $$$ doesn't always mean better, and less money doesn't always mean worse either. Wait did that make sense?!?

Less than $30. For me, a collar is something to hang her tags on and hook her leash to.

Like $5-$10. I can't do anything besides a martingale on my guys anyway unless I want a dog slipping his collar, and it's not like you can see their collars anyway, so. Right now they have coloured martingales from Premier that I got for $8.

I don't even spend that much on clothes for me. =P

That depends on where I am financially. At one point, I never would've spent more than $20 on a collar. Last year I spent $90, but since they were on sale I considered the collars to be $70 each plus $20 shipping (was a free shipping sale), haha. It just made me feel better about it. Now that I have those collars, I won't spend anymore than $50 on any more collars. I just can't justify buying more expensive collars when they each have one really nice one. Aside from some cute Christmas collars, I haven't bought any collars since I got their Pacos last year. In the future/for future dogs, I would buy them each a really nice leather collar if I could afford it. But if I couldn't, then they'd have to make do with something else... or wear hand-me downs.

$30...though I think the last one was $35. I just can't see justifying more than that on something that isn't really any more functional. When we go out (to the dog park, to agility), she wears a martingale leash since she can't have a collar to run, so no one sees fancy ones anyway. Even on walks, they're just for tags (we walk on a harness).

If my dog went lots of places, like came to school with me or did therapy visits all the time, or was otherwise in the lime light, I'd buy multiple collars...but as it is, I'm the only one who sees them (and even then I only sometimes see them, since she has so much fur!), so what's the point?
