Confession. One of the reason I wasn't even really considering longhaired dogs was because of my love of beautiful collars.

In my case, it completely depends on the collar. I also have a "thing" for traditional or breed-specific collars. When I was considering a Mastino Napoletano (I still am, but decided last year wasn't the right timing for me just yet), I also fully intended to custom order one of these collars by Rex Davis that I've been told go into the quadruple digits.

I picked chicken fajitas.

If I found the illusive perfect collar, I would spend up to $125. I'm super picky though, so now I haven't found one I would spend more than $30 on.

I'm happy with my $10-20 collars, but have paid up to $50. I don't know if I'd pay that much again.

I said "less than $30". That just seems reasonable to me, since what I look for is something nicer than cheap with some color and strength.

I have paid $80+ for a nice leather collar for Morgan... and I won't do it again. I LOOOOOVE the collar, but that is the problem. I love it so much that I rarely let Morgan wear it. I don't want him to mess it up. LOL!!!

In the end, though... 99.99999% of the time I just make his collars myself, so it's kinda moot.

I chose less than $250 because I have paid more than $100 for a collar (thanks Paco Collars, lol) and I'm sure I"ll do it at least once more. However, I don't think I"d pay more than $200 for a collar and I wouldn't even pay that amount more than once. Or so... that's what I'd like to think about myself hahaha

I chose under $75. The most I've spent on a collar thus far has been I think $40 for a custom Collar Mania embroidered martingale for Pentti. Any of Kimma's CM ones I got for free from contests! I love leather collars, but they won't show up too well under my guys' fur. Plus I would be afraid I would never even use them because I would be scared they would get dirty!

Now I did just buy a $45 twisted leather lead from onlead.biz and once Kimma gets another title (not sure if it will be in Rally or Agility) I will buy her a matching collar....

Finkie.. the nice thing about leather is that its actually far easier to keep clean than anything with fabric. I will never go back to fabric as my dogs are too dirty to keep it looking clean, even the good ones. Leather however looks fantastic for years.

I do not advise buying the dollar bin collars lol. Been there done that, took Lucy for a walk and then at one point realized, oh, the collar unsnapped. She doesn't pull, at all. So I put it back on her and then it unsnapped again.
Thankfully it was Lucy and not Juno lol because I know Lucy's not going anywhere if her collar comes off.

So yeah. The collar was CUTE but I guess there's a reason why it was only $1

I get SOOO mad when I find really really cute collars and they use a plastic snap thing. Even more expensive ones on etsy..

So annoying! I just don't trust those plastic things.. seen far too many of them snap off of dogs at the WORST times
