It can also be a fun fashion statement. If you’ve always had an eye for the trendiest threads, you can extend your fashion sense to your dog’s collar collection.
There are many designer dog collars available today, from familiar names like Gucci, Coach, and Juicy Couture, just to name a few. You can find ones that match your own outfits, allowing you and your pup to coordinate. You can find ones for various seasons and occasions. You can even find ones that match designer leashes.

Although we like and enjoy all the collars on this list, our favorite for everyday wear is this one of Perri’s Padded Leather. Its simple sophistication and comfortable padding make it ideal for walks around the block or naps on the couch. Its classic style is also appropriate for both male and female dogs.
Plus, it comes at a reasonable price, and is Amish-made in the USA.

Blueberry Pet is well known for offering a large variety of fashionable designer dog collars. These fun floral designs are affordable enough to have one for each day of the week.
Blueberry Pet collars are also extremely functional and durable for everyday wear if you find that one design or style is right for your dog’s day to day use.
You can also get these customized with your dog’s name and phone number embroidered on them so you don’t have to worry about getting a hanging tag that could just fall off anyway.
Remember to Add in a Tag
While there are a lot of cute designer dog collars out there, it is important to remember that you need to make sure that there is an ID tag just in case your pet is found by someone. A lot of models do include a charm that you can have engraved and of course having your pet micro chipped is another way to protect them in case they get lost or wander off but there is nothing like old fashioned tags to get your pet back to you sooner.
Planning the Whole Outfit
Just like people fashion, dog fashion is all about the accessories! In fact, some might say that dog fashion is all accessories.
You can easily coordinate collars to match favorite dog outfits or the seasonal holidays if you feel inclined. Collars are often the easiest fashion statement for a dog because all dogs are used to wearing them.
Usually so they are not going to notice so much when you switch out one collar for another unless the new one is either a lot more or a lot less comfortable than the last. Remember that thicker collars are not as comfortable for small breeds no matter how cute they might look in them. You do not want your dog to have to sacrifice comfort just to look cute.
A Note On Designer Collar Use
If your pooch leads an active lifestyle–hiking, swimming, agility training–you might want to reserve her designer wear for special occasions, such as walks through town or gatherings at your home.
At the same time, some of the models on this list are inexpensive and durable enough that you need not worry about a little wear and tear now and again. In fact, one of the benefits of some of the models on this list is their higher-end components, which can help them outlast other, lower-quality ones.
