Default Large 3" (spiked) dog collars

Hello all,

I saw a number of people getting custom made dog collars that come in 3" or even higher and these are usually worn by Pit-Bulls. While I do not like the spikes as they may end up causing some damage I wonder if these would be well fitted for GSDs?

What would be the biggest size of a collar you would get for your GSD before it starts looking like a neck brace or causes discomfort for your dog?

Also recommend any websites/stores where you get your dogs collars, leashes and etc. Where do you get the best bang for your buck?

Regards,

I get mine ( for my Mastiff) from Leerburg. I have agitation collars for her. She is a fearful dog who will turn and lunge out of nowhere if she thinks a man is a threat. She stays on our property as a result. I like the agitation collar for her because it has a handle so I can get a better grip on her if needed. I use that in conjunction with a prong if we have to go out , like to the vet. And I usually bring along a friend to help lol . Last time I sprung for a home visit from the vet.

Anyway , I personally do not like the spikes at all ..but leerburg does have nice ones at a decent price. I know they have 2 inch which as too thick for my 130 pound Mastiff..it seemed to bother her. So I got the 1 inch ones , and never returned the 2 inch ones. I doubt they have 3 inch. That is pretty thick.

Just to add , I think 3 inches would be way too thick for a GSD. Would not look right. Maybe a 2 inch if he is a bigger GSD?

I think this is the 3" one, that I would like to get without the spikes!

What do you think? Is that too big for a GSD?

Agree 3" will be big for a (most) GSD.

If you're looking for a more blingy yet tough look (including an actually very strong durable leather collar) check out California Collar Company. They can customize these up to 2".

The wider they are, the more fur they rub. The super short coats have the collar sit nicely on top. Otherwise, the collar will rub a spot. I like a nice rolled leather collar on my shepherd, but I don't walk him on it. He has a prong, martingale, or harness depending on the situation of the walking (class, general walking, hiking). A collar is a good place to hang ID tags.

PS -- turkish collars YIKES!
