Nope, I don't care about them at all. My dogs are longhaired so you can't see a collar on them. I love the longhaired look so doubt I'll spend a ton on collars.

Mia's collar right now is skulls and crossbones. I do like it but it was just a couple dollars.

I'm a collar junkie. I'm also a tag junkie. I don't actually have that many because I don't have an unlimited collar budget, but I do love to window shop for them.

I used to be a major collar addict, but not as much anymore. I still like them and sometimes just crave a new collar (as ridiculous as that sounds!), but they are impractical. My dogs each have three collars that they regularly wear (simple nylon/chain martingale, waterproof flat collar and pretty leather collar).

That said, I *did* just order the Dobermans a rolled leather each as I like to collar them for company and whatnot and other collars just are not comfortable on Ripley if they are to be worn around the house. Keira didn't need it, buy hey, I really like the rolled leather look and have been meaning to get both Dobes one for their whole lives. And these ones come with a name plate so no annoying tags necessary!

I love a nice leather collar but honestly my dogs rarely wear them! Byron's probably had one on twice in the last year when we have gone to a park and blitz wears a tear away in the crate in case he gets tangled with his ID cuz he is the only one I worry about wandering off.

Everyone has one nice collar and that's probably what I'll always do for my dogs. Though I do get the cheap IH ones at TSC sometimes for swimming. And I want a leather one with all the pretty colored stones for Byron but he never wears them do can't justify it.

It seems to go in spurts for me. I'm not really buying anything new right now, I have plenty.... but I do have an insane amount of collars.

Morado Dobermans... and Talla the Mexidog too! (group photo pending)

I will say that Revy has maybe 2-3 collars and that's it. No sense buying collars for her, they get lost in her hair. Though I have been tempted to buy her a rolled leather collar.

Um... I make collars.

So Morgan has a boat-ton of collars around the house. Lately, though, I haven't been very good about rotating them. I've got him wearing a checkered flag print right now and I <3 <3 it so very much.

Nope, my guys rarely wear collars except when at trials or travelling.
However I did order Who a custom martingale combo rabbit fur tug/bungee leash this summer.

I have a collar pile these days. I didn't used to. I have a drawer full of accumulated ones from the past that I should move along many of now, and the Ella's Lead pile which is bigger than I realized. Almost need more dogs to show off their bling.. but they go in spurts and I change them around some.
