Dog collars do
for dogs what a smart outfit does for people. Like the outfit, a collar
expresses the style, funk and temperament of its canine wearer. And to be
honest, it also shows off some of the personality of the owner too. Maybe
you’ve noticed this, but some dogs are their owner’s
But to get to the meat of the issue here. A truly
responsible pet owner doesn’t let their dog go out of the house without a
decent collar. The dog collar, like the human wallet, holds all of the dog’s
personal identification tags. If your pup should get off leash or escape the
backyard, tags will help them get back home. At HotDogCollars, we bring you
collars of all colors and styles to help make your fur child really stand out.
Finding the Best Fit:
The Stylin’ Pooch
Like people, dogs come with their own unique personalities
and quirks. There’s the dog who loves swimming with her human at the lake.
There’s the mutt who cuddles up with his favorite feline friend every night
after dinner. There’s the pup who gets self-conscious when she spots you
watching her howl at the passing fire engines in the street. It’s these sweet
moments that tell us what’s important to our dogs.
To personify their free spirits, we fit them with collars
communicating their personas through color and material. The pink,
worn by by the blonde miniature poodle tells us she’s the princess
of the family. The
worn by the floppy-eared bloodhound tells us he and his human
like a walk in the woods. Then there’s the no frills, no fuss red nylon collar,
worn by the active black lab found at the right side of her human.
The point is, every dog deserves to be loved for who they
are, and one way of doing that is by adorning them with collars that help to
introduce themselves to family, friends and passers-by.
Society of the United States
reports that there are three types of the
traditional or regular dog collar: The Flat, Martingale and Head collar.
The Flat Collar: The
customary collar for dogs, the flat collar has a quick-release buckle or snap
with a ring for attaching your pet’s ID tags.
The Martingale Collar:
Best for dog breeds with narrow heads, the martingale is a limited-slip collar.
This collar works best for pups who don’t like wearing collars and try to take
The Head Collar: For the
active and rambunctious dog, this collar fits around the dog’s neck, behind the
soft ears and comes to make a loop around his muzzle. The head collar is not
for everyday wear. It’s a tool to help train your pup
not to lead on those
