Default Colors and Collars

I was talking this over with a few friends and thought it would be nice to get your guys input as well. What color collars and or designs do you think looking really well with certain colored dogs/certain patterns?

I think red dogs (like Froman) look spectacular in deep, royal purple.

Sophie is brindle and has a black bordered brown leopard print collar, coordinates perfectly!

I really like red collars on white or black and white dogs.

Oh my dogs are color-coded and always have been.

Male, yellow lab = red/black
male, silver weim/lab = bright blue/black
female, white and tan pit = hot pink and purple
male, brindle Dutchie = green/black

That was my first "set" of dogs, then my current "set"
male, sable long coat GSD = bright blue/black
female, brindle Corgi = bright purple
female, brindle Corgi = hot pink
male, red/tan Kelpie = bright green
male, bicolor GSD = red/black

Finn is wearing everyone else's hand-me-downs right now so he has a plethora of colors LOL

I think a lot of it is just as dependent on a dogs' personality and gender as it is on their coat colour, but I have to say that turquoise and teal both look awesome on red dogs (like Toller red, or Quinn's red). Actually, I like both of those colours on brown dogs too.

My own dogs all sort of have their own colours, too.

Ripley looks best in darker greens and he also looks good in dark tan or cognac leather. I like burnt orange on him too. His worst colour (that I've tried on him) is red.

Keira looks best in girly colours. Purple I think is her most flattering colour, followed by pink. Being a black dog, her coat looks good against almost any colour, but a lot of colours still don't suit her personality well regardless. Her absolutely worst colour is brown.

Dance looks best in turquoise and teal and also dark purples. Actually, she pulls off pinks and lavender pretty well too. Her worst colour is black. I don't like black on her at all.

I also like collars that match their coats too if they're leather. So Ripley gets brown, Keira black and Dance tan.

I agree that it depends on the individual dog. Reecie has a blue camo collar right now, and I HATE it. She looks really good in yellow.

I used to thinks Maggie's color was pink, but I got her a nice purple collar, and I love it on her. But it has to be a certain purple; I don't think she would look good in light purple.

I've always liked bright blues and greens (like lime, teal, aqua etc.) on red dogs, the shade depending on their shade.

I like yellows, oranges, pinks and reds on blues. Traveler looks great in red and yellow and Didgie rocks yellow and pink.

Black dogs suck and can wear anything and look amazing
