Collar Recommendations

The boys currently wear nylon collars with the plastic buckles. I'm finding that after a while, even though the boys get groomed regularly, the collars start to smell funky :yuck:

Does anyone have any recommendations for some collars that they like? I'd like something a little fancy but since I have to buy 2, price is somewhat of a consideration.

I am wondering if leather collars would smell less.

Thoughts, suggestions?

i throw the dog's nylon collars in the wash about once per month to freshen them up (with tags and all... i just put them in a little mesh bag, the ones you get from the dollar store for nylons!).

i find leather collars to not be as versatile as nylon (ex: rain, snow, mud, etc) plus they tend to stretch out after a while, so i have both kinds in the house (leather & nylon) depending on which activity we're doing that day.

these leather collars are exquisite quality (i have two and will order more), super craftsmanship with quality material and you can't beat the price. www.kristalas.com

DUH! What a good idea, why didn't I think of this? :confused: I'm going to use the excuse that it's Monday.

On a side note, a member on my Berner forum sent me this link as another source for fancy dog collars: http://www.thetrumancollar.com/home.php

Given her colouring (;)) I'm going to vote for the pink one. I think it will stand out the best!

I think I may have to get the boys the traditional Swiss ones in honor of their heritage

Having back dogs is easy, they go with everything and everything goes with them :D

I wash the boys nylon collars too. Also, the leashes. :p
