The Original Hot Dog


The Original Hot Dog

Here’s a little story I’ve got to tell
About one awesome dog you’ll know so well
It started way back in history with Bunker the dog and me T-O-Double-D

I had a little puppy named Bunker the Bully
Just me & my doggy and a really fun story
Riding across the land, kicking up sand
Finding awesome pet gear that was in demand…

One small website owner we be
All by ourselves without nobody
The Petcos and Petsmarts beating down on our little website
The competition getting hot and the bills getting tight
Looking for a sale, Bunker with an idea unfurled
She said “I’ve got personality” and it’s time to show the world!

What is your pets personality? Calm and laid back? Hyper and ready to PLAY? The "Protector", the "Follower", the "lick your hand until you pet them some more"? Our pets are part of our family, each with their own unique personality. Hot Dog Collars was founded on this belief, and our mission is to enhance the lives of both the pet and the family through fun and unique pet accessories.

Since our humble beginnings at mall kiosks in Jacksonville, Florida, to our expansion as the worldwide online leader for dog collars, we have helped spoil over 1,000,000 pets. Still privately owned and operated, our mission is to help you make your four legged friend(s) happy. After all, their sole job seems to be to put a smile on our face

We invite you in to to share an important part of your family. But also to share our journey to find and supply the best Dog Collars, Pet ID Tags, Sports Gear, and all around fun stuff for your pet. By the way, say hi to Bunker, the original Hot Dog!

Proud to be helping pets via our RUFF program
