Fashionable collars for dogs and cats have always had their place, however it seems more and more these days that pet collars are more opulent and over the very best than in the past. Decked in everything from Swarovski rhinestones to gold and even precious gems, it’s more obvious than ever before that mankind adores their best friends. If you’re looking to give your cat or dog a little extra bling, read on for a few from the trendiest ideas.
First, a word of caution: before purchasing a collar for the pet dog or cat, you should carefully consider the reason for this purchase. Many types of collars are designed for any specific use and really should not be wrongly identified as an everyday collar used for a walk in the park or perhaps a decorative collar designed for eye appeal. Collars used for behavior control such as excessive barking, or obedience collars for example choke collars are just employed for limited schedules and therefore are not to be used as an over-all purpose collar.
Designer Pet Collars
Decorative collars for dogs and cats are very popular with pet owners who enjoy seeing their cats and dogs “dressed up” as they say, and looking their finest. Collars like these come in myriad styles and designs and can range in composition from fancy sequins to Swarovski rhinestones, moissanite, fake fur, lace and much more. For instance, beaded neck coverings of hand-cut and polished crystal beads, nickel or brass studded or collars with fake fur, and collars covered in pearls and rhinestones have become quite popular. It ought to be noted however, that certain of those fashion collars are strictly for adornment only, and are never to be utilized for a restraint or attachment to a leash.
These are collars that can be beneficial in finding a pet that’s been lost or just like a novelty to display you pet’s name. Made of leather, nylon or flat rubber cord, among other composites, the animals name can be displayed in cut-out Swarovski rhinestone letters, or the collar could be printed with their name, telephone number, etc. These collars can be used for wearing every day.
Obtaining the Right Fit
All of the Swarovski rhinestones on the planet will not make your pet comfortable, so beyond the cuteness factor, always make sure that the collar you choose fits well. Wrongly fitting collars may injure or maim the one you love pet, so make sure to follow the 2-finger rule, meaning two fingers should be able to fit under the collar without an excessive amount of difficulty.
