a terrible addiction to doggy bling-bling :o

just wondering which one to get next? :confused: http://www.kristalas.com/collars/studded.htm and http://www.kristalas.com/collars/designer.htm and http://www.kristalas.com/collars/extralarge.htm

i love them all... dakotah already has the 2-Ply Leather Dog Collar with Pyramid Studs as well as the One-Size Leather Collar, both in dark brown. they are the best collars i have ever had the pleasure to own... worth a LOT more than what i paid them! so... which one is next?? :confused:

I never open popup thingies, but this one yesterday caught my eye...

Cool beds, IMO, but my doggies'd never use them.

I like this one best: http://www.kristalas.com/collars/45116.htm

I'm going to get my dogs some nice leather collars, but I'm not into ordering that stuff online unless several people recommend to me that the leather is super high quality.
I'll probably go to a good leather shop and have them make something.
If I'm gonna get something like that I might as well get the best I can find since my dogs wouldn't be wearing them much anyways.

Or, do you have to be wearing the collar yourself for it to be a fetish??:crazy: :D

All I can say Technodoll is Thank Dawg your beanies can't wear Jimmy Choo's! You'd be in REAL trouble then!!!

So...have you checked out the William Wegman collection for beds? Or how about those nice bags?

the petbitat stuff is crazy! good thing their collars aren't designed for thick-neck doggies & my beanies prefer sleeping on the hardwood floor than any cushy bed... :p

Actually Technodoll - the fabric "Crypton" is virtually dog-proof. It practically washes itself ! And hair fairly flies off of it! Or so says the designer who recommended it to me. And at $52 USD per yard it had better be making me breakfast too!!!

17818 I'm likin' this one Technodoll. I prefer the brown one the Bullmastiff is wearing in the picture below but I can't seem to copy it. Hmmm... $90 USD for a collar is BLING with a capital B.

i was kinda liking this one... on sale at $12.95... i can afford that, LOL!

That's gorgeous - it's almost like woven metal. I wish my dawgwalker didn't insist on martingales - the only ones I could find on short notice are good quality but a hideous orange. Of course ~ there's no reason why they couldn't have more than one...as you have so amply demonstrated.
My rugrats DESERVE a little bling. Too early for a pre-Hallowe'en prezzie ? Nah! It may be time to break the protective glass case on the "P" card..."no no no" says The Budget. Budget-shmudget says I !

Ok you collar addicts;) ;) We had some made by hand and they are great. They're made by hand the old fashion way, it takes a few weeks before there ready, but its worth it. Feels like they will last a life time. Fully custom made! have a look

Here is a leather artisan in Quebec who makes some fantastic collars

Ebay seller gmiles71 has assorted jeweled and studded collars.

This person makes quite creative collars look under rhinestone as well as collars and online store http://www.leather-creations.com/index.html

Oh, LOL, I just posted a similar question in one of the ongoing collar threads, but just saw this one now! Oops! I'm like you Technodoll, I just can't get enough of collars either! My vet recommended leather to me as Petey is allergic to the nylon. I love the look of some of these! Now I just have to decide which one. :) Good luck with your search as well! :)

Steph

Edited to add, I just ordered this one!!!
http://www.leather-creations.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=28

I ordered it to look like the custom one pictured with the name "brando" on it, but with Petey's name of course and with stainless steel instead of brass. Got a matching leash as well! Got it lined in sheepskin too, so I hope that will help with irritation for Petey. The vet recommended a padded leather or fleece lined, so hopefully the sheepskin will be similar? Thank you so much to OntarioGreys for the link! Beautiful stuff! It said it will take 4-8 weeks to arrive, but I'll post a pic when it comes. :) Petey is going to look so handsome! :)
