Like it or not, most pets (of the feline and canine varieties, anyway) need neckwear, to keep them safely identified or likewise on a leash. Collars might not be a pet’s favorite thing, but they don’t have to be unfashionable – or uncomfortable, for that matter.
Whiskerkisses offers white button-down collars to combine with regular and bowties for a most fashionable statement (and just in time for Independence Day.)
Classic Hound’s Martingale collars – designed especially not to slip off a dog’s neck – come in pretty fabrics and adjustable sizes. The lining is soft to prevent chafing and the metal buckles are extra strong.
I promised myself no more Boston Terriers for awhile, but Beantown Handmade did me in. The utter cuteness of crocheted collar embellishments like chrysanthemums and pinwheel flowers may explain why.
DogGone Knitting will embroider your pet’s most special collar with her name – especially handy if you’ve got more than one to get on leash at a time.
The versatile folks at Lucky Fiona will make any of their colorful fabrics into a collar for a dog or a cat.
Every collar needs a tag or two, some just for fun along with those that carry your pet’s important identifying information in case they get lost. UrbanPuppy makes custom designs and carries others on a regular basis. (I chose the WonderDog image because that’s what I called mine, although I understand he has some competition.)
