first collarmania! Qs. Suggestions?

Postby kcalbat » Mon May 19, 2008 10:43 pm

Just about to order some collars from Collarmania but have a few Qs.

I was wonder what sizes would be good for my dogs. The 1.5inch or the 2 inch?

Heres pics of the dogs, Peaches has a longer slim neck and Bullet's is short.

For Peaches, what colors would compliment her red? She has the white around her neck, maybe I could do like a redish/brown leather w/white letters???

Bullet also has the white around his neck...a suppose any bright color would stand out. Maybe blue?

Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!!!

Peaches reminds me of Trixie's coloring..I like the olive green leather/hot pink lining combo or any of the pink leathers, as well as the dark brown.

Bullet would do well in black, the navy or burgundy metallic would also look great on him.

as for widths of the collars, I think you could go with either 1.5" or 2".

I prefer the 2" because I feel like there is less pressure per sq. in. Kind of like putting a fishing line around your neck and then trying a 5/8" braided rope and see which feels better. All I know is 2 things: get the collar from Collarmania and the lead from Ella's lead. Mine is great and will buy nothing else. They have a gallery at collarmania to see some on other dogs to give you and idea on different color dogs. :thumbsup:

I tend to prefer the 1.5" collars, and since my boy is so lightly built I got him a 1.25". The wider collars do disperse the force over a greater area, but they also are bulkier and I think they seem less comfortable for just wearing around. Like the way I hate wearing wide rings but narrow rings don't bother me. The 1.5" are still plenty wide to make them comfortable on a leash.

oh okay.

Both dogs are relatively small, around 45lbs or so, so maybe Ill try the 1.5 inch first and see how those fit or work.

Im in love with these collars so i will def. be getting more than a few.

thanks!

Take a sheet of notebook paper (colored would be best, so you can see it) and fold it to two inches. Wrap it around the dogs' necks and take a look. Take another and fold it to 1.5 inches and give that a shot.
