    SmartPak!
    My JRT wears one of these: http://www.smartpakequine.com/deluxe...x?cm_vc=Search

    And 90 pd mutt-zilla wears this one:

    Both have held up beautifully to wear and tear, barn life and copious rolls in manure, followed by soaks in hot water!

    About 4 pages back I asked about collars and got terrific feedback... "nice leather (nonPetco) collars". So many great collars! I too have a new pup but need to wait a bit for a splurge collar-she's only 8 wks. Congrats on your new addition-what did you get????

    Me too I remember that you lost your Jack recently-so happy for your new baby.

    Believe it or not, Land's End has a really nice leather collar - a Lab I know has worn it for 6 mos. and it looks great and owner gets lots of compliments.

    Don't know if they're going to be a favorite yet, but I'm going to try out a leather collar from Hogan Leather http://www.hoganleather.com/ fairly soon, as the Littlest Corgi has almost earned her first nice leather collar and Hogan should be able to do something semi-custom for me. I also saw some very nice braided leather collars at MD Sheep and Wool Festival last weekend from Foxfire Leather in WV, but they only have a price list, no website.

    My absolute favorite collar is the one that No. One Corgi has - it's a round (not rolled) leather one that was made in the UK - sadly, the vendor I got it from said that the man who made them retired... It's black, 3/8" and super soft and flexible.

    Thanks. We really love her. Made losing the other JRT a little easier.

    Oh my godfrey she's so precious!! I love the irregular facial markings! Is Jelly the girl you lost? She was beautiful--- reminds me of my dear departed girl. My new peanut is a bit more classicly marked---personality trumped markings. Though she does have a Cindy Crawford mole marking on her cheek.

    Yes, Jelly was the one we lost. She was 14. I LOVED the brown ticks all over her body!!

    I saw the video of your new pup. Adorable!

    Default Like butter

    Handmade, reasonably, priced, US materials. Arrives soft as butter. Wears beautifully. "Ultra lightweight" widths for small dogs.

    What? Quillin hasn't been mentioned yet?!

    Here is the selection o their website. I have my dogs in a 3/4" wide raised model with a name plate that they no longer list but is still available. The collars are BEAUTIFUL and well made and will last the life of the dog.

    For leashes, I like the beta ones that the tackatack lady made for me. They feel great in the hand and are so durable!

    There are so many nice collars out there it can be hard to choose. Many years ago a good friend gave me a collar that was from "her horse to my dog" so sweet but you know what, I loved the collar and my next whippet got one too.

    The brand is Weaver. Yes, the western company. The collar is from the Rodeo collection. The first collar is atleast 5 years old and looks just as good as the day I received it. I got the dark brown one with the crystals. My pups look so good in them and we always get compliments. Just a simple leather collar with Swavarski (sp) crystals. So pretty. Not tacky at all. Just right.

    Check them out. If you have money to burn check out Paco Collars.

    Quillan can't be beat. Their leather is good, the riveted on ID tags are the best ever.
    these are awesome for showing but I doubt they would stand up to daily hard use:

    A decent collar - like a good pair of shoes on people - adds an air of class to a dog - that's what I say. Worth the $ for years of pleasure. The large pet stores have crap.

    I ordered my dog a collar from Kustom Fit Halters (www.kustomfithalters.com) last year and really like it. It's held up great and it made in the USA. It looks like they are having a promo for free shipping right now.

    I agree!

    I have my dogs with me today and snapped some shots of their Quillin collars. Here is the collar and on the dog.

    Forgive me, as I haven't cleaned the collars in ages. They've held up beautifully. These are not listed on the Quillin website, but they will still make you one if you call. The collar in the photos with the dog is about 10 years old, and the collar on it's own is about 5 years old. They are heirloom pieces.
