Me too!

But Kyleigh only wears hers outside. Once she's in the house or even in the backyard ... no collar!

I have too many collars for my dogs actually. Lol

I have a bit of everything for Dixie and Jasper, but I do have favorites.

For Jasper, my favorite is a rolled leather collar because it doesn't mess up his fur. And for Dixie I like her 2 inch wide nylon collar with a metal belt type buckle. Both of them have broken quick releases on collars, so if I use one with a quick release I never attach a leash to it; only to a prong collar or harness.

Dixie(GSD/Aussie/chow X)

I've got a cheap regular nylon one with a plastic quick release, it's been holding up well, but it appears to have been the thing causing Rusty's wheezing issues when he was excited/pulling on the leash. I just picked up a prong collar yesterday and wow, what a difference. More importantly, no more wheezing, so no more potential damage to his trachea (I wish my vet had told me, since I had asked him a couple of times, but it was a member on this forum who told me to try a prong collar)

My favorite is the Rolled Leather Martingale but I don't have a dog that pulls like a freight train. I've had the same one for 6 years.

Rolled leather works best for my GSD and Border Collie.

Since I use a harness for walking, the collar is just needed for his tags. I use a cinch-it from Leerburgs. Lovely colors - quick release - easy to adjust - non allergenic - easy to clean.
