I never spent a lot of time shopping for collars I imagined they were all the same. but at work I notice all sorts of styles so I looked into it. Now I am very particular about my collars. I am in LOVE with this collar company I bought Flash's collar from. What first drew me to their website is the beauty of their collars. but the function of them far out does that!
They custom make your collar in all the different styles and functions, it is sown just for your dog.
For Flash I chose to get a 3 inch wide collar, martingale style with brass hardware. I love LOVE LOVE it their martingale collars are superb! They are soft on my dogs neck but still tighten to a degree when they pull so they can not get them off and offers you more control over the dog for walk. I thought their prices were extremely reasonable. the only issue I have with his collar is since it is silk ( not all the collars are silk )if your dog is more rough on his collars it will probably get snagged and you will get "runs" in the fabric. I also appreciate that they are super soft and clean on the dogs skin and they do not rub at all.

One of their collars kept my big guy safe. He bent the hardware (and those things are rated for 1100lbs!) but the collar did not come apart so it kept my big guy from being loose and possibly ending up in the street (lots of semi traffic here). Knowing my boy can put that much force on a collar has made me VERY picky about what Im willing to use on him. These collars are very well made. I cant say enough good things about 2HoundsDesign!

We have a martingale from them as well. It's great. Holds up well and looks very fancy. The amount of customization they offer in size and design is really nice as well.

would any of you guys have a suggestion for my pitbull? I was going to order him a 2houndsdesign but he is outside all the time and it will be destroyed within a day. He needs a 3 inch collar very sturdy. But he can not wear leather it makes his skin break out. Right now I have a simple 3 inch nylon collar on him but I do not like its function or design. Most custom pitbull collars are those ones designed to make them look "tough" and I believe in making him look happy and friendly with bandanas and and bright colors.

Abbylynn has a nice Martingale from 2houndsdesign ... great quality workmanship .... I also chose the brass hardware. :) I cannot say enough good things about the company. I am going to eventually buy a "Jellybean" harness for Eddee from them.

I like your collar! They have such beautiful patterns to choose from!

Plus ... they accept Pay Pal

Blocky Dogs for a custom 2 inch collar, very strong. Lots of colors to choose from. Why does he need a 3 inch collar?

Definitely Blocky Dogs. They're designed for powerful dogs that can be rough on a collar. The owner couldnt find functional, yet fashionable collars that were strong enough for her American Bulldogs....so she created them.

the 2 inch collar rubbed his skin under his neck frame it just sat at the wrong spot for him he has baby sensitive skin, the 3 inch sat just right and didn't irritate his skin. Also he can pull most collars off but the 3 inch ones he has never been able to pull off. His beefy neck is the same width as his head. So the 3 inch collars seemed to work really well for him and he pulls like a draft horse and like i said it dug into his neck , I like the way the 3 inch collars displace the tug better. This beefy boy could do amazing in the weight pulling world. He is mostly an outdoor dog he hates being inside. Even in the winter I have to force him to stay inside when its cold. He just loves the outdoors. He gets restless after about 10 minutes inside.

We use martingales for our guys. They only go on when we take them somewhere, though. At all other times, they wear very narrow nylon buckle collars for tags. These are applied loosely, so the dogs can slip out of them if they become entangled. Maybe that's something you can try?

By the way, I LOVE the idea of wanting him to look friendly and approachable! That says a lot of how you view the breed, and I wish more people thought of things like that! :)

Ty it truly annoys me when someone adds insult to injury by sporting their pitbull with a huge spiky dog collar. One of my clients came in once and she always decks her pitbulls on in funny clown stuff and in t-shirts I loved the idea so much I adopted it. although he eats t-shirts so the happy collars and bandanas do nicely. People use to ask what kind of dog he was and stopped to pet him ( like you can't tell ) but I truly think it is because they don't see them as that killer dog the news says they are when they are attired in happy colors ^_^

It's no fair because Sydney is not hard on collars/harness at all so I can never justify buying more than one. She's had the same collar since I got her and it's not even good quality really. It came from Old Navy, lol.

The first "big dog" collar I got Bella was from Old Navy - lasted a long time and was still looking good but I wanted something different. Had little blue anchors & starfish on it =) I think I still have it someplace...might be too small now though.
