Spoil Your Pup With A New Collar
Kai has picked out her favorite preppy dog collars just for you and your pup! All of her choices are available through Amazon for surprisingly low prices. We even found several Martingale collars for those of you that have dogs constantly escaping from their collars, and some environmentally friendly collars, too.
From nylon to polyester to cotton, you can find the perfect fit for your little friend. We've all experienced purchasing something cute for our pets that was much less functional than we intended. Fortunately, all of Kai's picks are just as comfortable as they are cute! Several of Kai's picks are made with Nylon, which is preferable for shorter haired pups; it's lightweight, comfortable, and a more affordable option than leather. Unlike leather collars, all of Kai's picks are easy to wash and maintain. Both the nylon and polyester collars are especially great for dogs who are constantly outside playing and are going to be getting their collars wet.
What has Kai picked out?
Most of Kai's picks are traditional flat collars which are a must for all dogs. Even if your dog needs a special training collar, they should only be wearing it while you're training them or walking them. Flat collars will give your pup a comfortable and easy way to wear their name ID in case of emergencies. If your pup is trying to back out of their collar, try out one of Kai's favorite Martingale collars. A Martingale is made with two loops instead of one, to prevent choking and to prevent your dog from removing the collar. They're a safer alternative to choke collars and are extremely easy to use.
Looking for an environmentally friendly option for a guilt free purchase? Kai's got you covered! Two of her preppy choices are Ruff Roxy collars. They use vegan friendly, cruelty-free materials for their collars (and are actually affordable). We found our favorite Ruff Roxy collars on Amazon so you won't have to waste any of your time searching. All of Kai's favorite collars are easy to wash, easy to use, and made to last. Whether you've got a brand new puppy or a full-grown German Shepherd, you can find the perfect adorable collar that won't break the bank.
We have carefully selected brands with your dog's comfort and safety in mind. If you find the perfect collar, but just not the perfect pattern, there's no need to worry. Most of Kai's picks are available in a variety of colors and patterns right through their Amazon link. Get ready to spoil your pup with a preppy collar you can both get excited about!
