    Default good dog collars?

    I think there was a post on here but I lost where I found it. But what are good collars to put on bulldogs? I notice they usually have an inch wide collar on, is that for a reason? Right now Jovi is turning 5 months so we just have a regular collar on her but I know when her neck gets bigger we are getting a wider one. Also, do people recommend leather? I notice they usually have leather collars too.

    I choose to use a harness with my bully since they have such breathing problems .0

    Definitely personal preference. We like the collars by Dozer from Carolina Pet Pantry. Harlea only has a collar for her tags and thats it when she is going to be on a leash we use a harness that matches her collar.

    We use a harness for walks and car rides. Otherwise, we have any old collar for the tags but the collar is simply used for identification, not for function.

    @Gfitz911 What kind of harness is your bullie wearing in your pic. Does your dog pull on a leash?

    We only use a collar or harness when we are on walks. When they are in the house we take them off. I would not let them wear a collar if they are unattended or in their crate, just so they will not get it hung on something. We use one we bought at Petsmart, it is nylon and has a quick release larch on it so it is easy on and easy off.

    Hi, I agree with others above, we only use collars or harnesses when we go outside, in the house we take them off. We use a harness when we go for long walks, but use their collars when we are just going potty, or for a short car ride. Their collar has their name tags and licences, and rabies tags. We use the Kong collars and harnesses, but I also like the Dozer collars.

    Elmo wears a harness, I feel he can breathe better than with a collar. Susan Moore

    +1 on the harness for walks.. (or as Kevin likes to call them... "Im going to sit here until you carry me around the block")

    Everything else is just for 'fashion'... well, and a little bit of a 'hand hold' for when they get out of control

    Here is what i bought for Kevin in the past few weeks (yea.. weeks.. ):

    Puppia Soft Dog Harness (X-Large)... LOVE IT! best harness I've bought for him (this is his 3rd) - Amazon.com
    Hamilton Creased Leather Collar in Black 3/4" wide - Very Nice leather, Inexpensive (hell grow out of it soon) - Amazon.com
    Kakadu Pet Give a Dog a Bone Leather Dog Collar 1" wide - Again, very nice.. but my wife took it off Kevin and put it on Molly - Amazon.com

    There are also some GREAT dog collars on Etsy..
    http://www.etsy.com/shop/FourRobins (some of my favorites)

    For Molly, we are having a custom leather collar made.. Its leather (decorated) and has 6 stones around it.. One for each of her puppies.

    IMHO.. its easy to spend $$$ for collars. Its best to not even look around.. just get something plain and move on... Or the next thing you know your dog is wearing a collar that costs more then your shoes (unless your my wife.. then your shoes cost more then my entire wardrobe!)
