Cara Fusinato 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!

Gwenhwyfair 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".

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?
