I really like rolled leather collars, but I hate that they only way to tag them is to attach hanging tags normally, so was thrilled to find one with a nameplate.
I definitely need to bookmark that for the future!

I like to window shop for them, because unfortunately I don't have a huge collar budget. So right now each of my girls has two collars with the exception of Cara because I lost her rolled leather somewhere. With that being said, I do plan on ordering Cara an Ella's Lead collar for her second birthday.

I like browsing them/online window shopping. I don't need to have a huge array of collars in every imaginable color, pattern, style etc for Katalin though.

I picked "I'd love to buy more but have to wait." I love decorative collars but haven't had the money til now. As it is I'm waiting on my debit card in the mail. But once I get it I'd like to order some collarmania collars.
Don't fear tomorrow.

I like collars a lot, but I don't have the budget for a ton of them. So everyone has at least one nice leather collar. The dogs who like to slip collars also have martingales for when we're out and about. I do like to look though

I definitely go in spurts. When Harlow turned one and stopped going through WalMart collars like crazy, I went a little nuts and got like 6 of them. Since then, I think all but one has had dee rings, buckles and doG knows what else taken off to be used for other projects. I try to repurpose the straps for tugs and such.

I make leather collars, so she has a handful of those. Right now, I'm really craving a super nice, sturdy, and waterproof martingale for both dogs from CollarMania as well as a rolled leather collar for each of them for tags.

Usually, I try to keep it to just window shopping and I think once I get these, I will be done for quite a while, as I have funds that need to go elsewhere. (:

I have a lot of collars for the dogs but most of them I made. And I actually started making collars so I could have cute ones without paying through the nose.

Murphy currently has...three Collar Mania collars with his name on them, one Ella's Lead collar that he never wears, a harness I made him, and an Easy Walk. Mu has a million cloth collars that I made, one EL collar that she never wears, one Collar Mania collar with her name and our phone number on it, and one harness that I need to replace. Tipper shares Mu's cloth collars, has an EL tag collar that I LOVE, one Collar Mania collar with her name and our phone number on it, and one harness that also needs replaced.

I actually stopped even really looking at collars last year when we had to make the girls go naked in the house. It's not worth having cute collars if they get their teeth stuck in them in the middle of a fight. I still want one nice leather collar for each of them but I'm considering just making them myself....I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Can't see 'em on my guys so no. Also I use martingales, so unless I buy from collar makers ($$) it's not like they come in cute patterns anyway. I'm too poor to like collars I suppose. =P

I looooove collars! Rory has 2 Pacos, Emma has 2 Pacos, Rylie has 1 Paco, Chloe has 2 Pacos, and Tucker has 1 Paco. Since the chihuahuas each have their "perfect" leather collar, I haven't bought as many lately! I'm getting Rory another Paco in the near future (The Glow- it's their new awesome collar!).

Here's my Paco 'collection'. I've sold 2 of them since they never wore them!

Our Paco Collars by Chihuahuaesque, on Flickr

My problem is that I only like leather collars... so I haven't bought any fabric collars in a while. And I also LOVE Fetching Tags

Harnesses are another story- I walk the chihuahuas on harnesses and I LOOOOVE cute ones! We have quite the harness collection.
