Which leather color do you prefer for collars?

I want to order Bianca a new collar but I can't decide which color to get!
Which color do you prefer or do you think would look better on her?

This is the collar I'm getting. It comes in brown and black. They also have tan but I don't like that one much...



You can see more photos of this company's leather collars in the two colors here:

Here's a photo of Bianca:

Re: Which leather color do you prefer for collars?

I always look at gallery examples of different collar colors on dogs that are the same color as mine so i can get an idea as to what it will look like.

Personally I went with brown for your dog.

Re: Which leather color do you prefer for collars?

i don't like collars to stand out too much. my black gsd has a black rolled leather collar. tilden is "red" which is really closer to the tan leather collars, so thats what he got. their leashes match as well.

that said... i voted for black, since you didnt like the tan. the brown (at least in the above photo) looks red to me.

i reeeeeally like the collar thats on the dobie mid way down the page.

The brown you showed more like red I think. I like it, black is cool but as for me, Red looks pretty chic.!!! I vote for RED

Re: Which leather color do you prefer for collars?

I think she will look great in both colors - I did vote for black (I am getting a black leather color for my boy lols) but while I did vote for black the down side of black sometimes is that the black can fade - I think the brown color will "age" better but I love black leather in general lols.

I really like the Isaboo in the large dog category. It would like nice on Kayos.

I saw a GSD wearing the brown color collar on the site, looked good on the dog.

Re: Which leather color do you prefer for collars?

If the color fades, you can always retouch it with a spot of leather dye. For that matter, you can get a light colored collar & dye it a deeper color. I'm thinking if the tan is a light tan it could pick up something like a good deep purple pretty nicely.
