Every one has one with tags they wear only when out, and they're all plain and cheap. I'm completely ambivalent about collars. I see plenty that are cute, but I have no interest in getting the dogs more than plain ones for tags.

Way too many and sadly there are still more that I want. Have a lot of leads too.

I probably have somewhere between 60-70 collars I'm guessing. Need to do an official count at some point. Majority of those collars are Cricket's. Bamm probably has maybe 10 and Joey probably has maybe 10 and the rest are Cricket's. I think I may have problems. Majority of my collars are premier martingale in numerous colors and plain so if you don't count those then my number is a tad bit smaller.
Joey- Ibizan Hound
Cricket- Mexican Street dog (we think Xolo mix)
Bamm- BC mix
Itztli- Standard size coated Xoloitzcuintli

Suzie has one
Jack has two collars and a harness. He actually has a pretty nice collar, it's leather and looks pretty good. If I get anymore collars it would be for him because you can actually see them
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.

He has one but he never wears it. He has two harnesses but he only wears the one. He generally wears it all day until night time and then I take it off. Its ugly and muddy coloured but it was only 8 dollars and he really likes the fit of it. Only harness he hasn't laid down for me to put on and shrink up into a ball.

Bailey has two. Well, three including the one she came with.... which I only keep for sentitmantal reasons But they're both rolled leather colors. One is dark brown and the other is a rich red color (which is what she's wearing now)

Maddie has 234567876543234567, which is probably not an exaggeration No, but seriously, she had so many that I put a ton of nylon and fabric collars in gallon sized zip lock baggies and I donated them. To 2 different shelters and 1 rescue
I used to keep them because I'd say I'd rotate them. And I did occasionally rotate, but more often than not I didn't, I just bought more new ones

So now I rotate between a couple really nice leather colors. She wears her white mcstolly on special occasions. And she wears a turquoise and brown queenie everyday

Too many!! But most of them are just cheap pet store nylon collars that I bought prior to discovering online shopping. Most of them belong to past dogs and I don't even use them anymore, but I can't get rid of them either because what if i want to use them one day? Pretty stupid really, because I likely won't lol.

My adult dogs all have pretty rolled leather collars from Quillin Leather and a Paco each and they also all have a chain/buckle martingale each. Oh, and I have three biothane collars for swimming from Gun Dog Supply that I bought last summer. Keira and Journey share the purple one if they're not both going out at once. And all of the girls have a plain nylon collar each with their ID embroidered on (Ripley had one too but outgrew his). Dance also has a tag collar from Karma Collars that I do like, but it's not my favourite (the name plate isn't engraved very deeply).

I used to be a major collar addict, but not so much anymore. They do all have like 4-5 each and that's all they need and I do use them all regularly for different things. I don't often get any desire for new collars anymore now that I have a few that I really like.

Let's see... excluding Quinn's puppy collars (which I keep because they're cute), she has

1 Braid-a-roo tag collar that she wears all the time
3 Ella's Lead collars
2 Collarmania collars
1 Collar Shop martingale
1 Lupine martingale
1 damask print - can't remember brand
1 Browning biothane collar
1 Weaver leather collar
1 Rogz nylon collar

I think that's it - I may be forgetting one or two. But assuming I got all of them, that's 12 collars for one dog.

Leashes I am slightly better with - 2 Pacos, 1 Weaver, 4 nylons, and 2 slips. Total 9. Oh, and two long lines. I only use my leather ones or the long lines - the nylon ones I all got free (or at least <$2) and I only use when my leash is going to get wet/dirty. And I have one brand new in a consignment shop, but since I don't want it I don't count it!

She has two harnesses (one Kong, one Hurtta).

...I don't know...

There is a box in the closet, and a few more hanging up in various places around the house. One is from EL, and I made all the rest.
