The Chevron Collar by Bow-Wow CoutureMy Boxer pooch buddy, Bruiser, looks handsome in his Chevron Collar ($16.95) when he parades in the park. His owner Dad is a military man, and he is proud of Bruiser’s snappy obedience. When Bruiser and his dad leave the house, they march down the street, parade to the park and rest at the fountain. Those two guys turn lots of heads with their stature and clothes. Bruiser’s Chevron cotton collar is machine washable. The best part of the design is the curved snap release that fits smartly on Bruiser’s neck. He wears his dog tag attached to the nickel-plated ring. The Chevron comes in seven colors, and Bruiser’s is deep blue. Want to know why? He and his dad are USAF! You can spot them easily as “off they go” to the park.
Customized Rhinestone Big Dog CollarYou must see this collar, to appreciate its elegance. Suzie, my Great Dane neighbor, has an issue with finding the right size for her frame. The Customized Rhinestone Collar ($17.95) is her favorite accessory. It has a two-tone snakeskin finish, which is nice. But the BEST part is her name in rhinestones that decorate the collar. You can get customized doggie collars with rhinestone letters specially placed on the snakeskin for you, and you may even add charms for more bling. In XL for dogs necks that measure 19”-22,” big dogs do not have to be left out of the fashion circle. Suzie proudly holds her head up when she steps out with her beautiful owner mom.

Collar by Bow-Wow CoutureMy newest country house neighbor, Connie, the Bichon Frise, is almost her full size, at 8 lbs. Her parents bought her a Sassy Pants Collar ($16.95) from Doggie-Diva Dog Store, and she looks fabulous! The Sassy Pants collar has a black background with tiny white dots all over it. On Connie’s white fluffy fur, the effect is perfect. She can go anywhere in that collar. In fact, she dresses it up with a flower that has the matching polka-dot detail in the center. Connie is a funny one, though. Since she has discovered that she can dress up, she never leaves home without one of her fancy cotton collars. In fact, if she is outside naked these loud “yap-yaps” echo around the yard so you cannot miss her irritation. Her mom brings out her collar, and Connie is all smiles.
What is my collar style, you ask? I like cotton pup collars a lot and I wear different ones when we go into town on a leash. Mostly I am in the yard with my fence collar to keep me from chasing motorcycles in the neighborhood. Ever since I was a pup, the sound of a motorcycle gets me fired up, and I want to race them. BUT, after a bad spill in my youth, I am staying in my yard, and my fence collar reminds me to behave.
