Collars are a big deal at my house, heavens, Mom has a serious collar addiction as we have over sixty in our collection! dogIDs.com contacted me to see if I would be interested in reviewing some of their personalized dog collars. I jumped on that offer as if it was a wabbit! One kind of collar we have never had would be the personalized variety, and being birthday month at my house, I could give my sisters each a personalized collar as a birthday gift. ***Our collars all came with our phone number, but I took it off or just left the first number for my blog photos. I figured all the boy dogs would be calling us gorgeous, fun girls if they got my number, and I didn’t want to use up all my minutes.***
I picked out three different collar styles. There are several personalization fonts to choose from, but I like to see something fun, so I chose the Kristin font. For Bailie and me, I chose something sporty with a metal buckle, and for Katie I got something a bit more classy with a side release buckle like our collars usually have.
To tell you a bit about dogIDs.com, they are a family run business in Fargo, ND founded in 2005. Their products are all made in the USA, and eco friendly. They specialize in high quality dog ID tags and personalized dog collars, but they’re constantly adding new products including leashes, safety clothing, harnesses, bowls, health products, etc. Because they believe dogs deserve only the best, they only offer high quality products!
For myself, I chose an Engraved Reflective Personalized Dog Collar in my favorite color red. Some of the features I love about it are:
- Durable, stink proof and waterproof
- Scotchlite reflective strip for nighttime walking/activities
- Available in seven different colors
- Non-corrosive hardware
- Five buckle holes for just the right fit
- Laser-engraving guaranteed for my lifetime
I have a lot of outdoor activities and am low to the ground, so my collars normally get dirty and smelly in a short amount of time, but not this collar. My name and phone number are engraved on the collar, so I don’t have to wear all my tags which means I don’t jingle. No jingle means I can sneak up on wabbits and squirrels and it makes concentrating on my nose work easier!
Katie is a fancy lady, so for her I chose a Personalized Designer Nylon Ribbon Collar in her color, pink. Some of my favorite features of her collar are:
- Available in five adjustable sizes
- Ten designs to choose from
- 2-ply tough construction using high density nylon webbing and grosgrain ribbon
- Welded “D” ring that you can count on no matter how hard your dog pulls
- X-box nylon stitching that is guaranteed to never come apart
Katie loves it, and her collars rarely get dirty, so it is perfect for her. She has her name and phone number on the buckle, so wearing tags is optional for her as well.
Last but not least, I chose a Reflective ScruffTag Personalized Dog Collar for Bailie. She was purple girl in her litter of fourteen, and likes accessories in purple, so naturally I picked out a purple collar, and I loved that I could put a few words on it. Because she is the baby in the family, I added, “Call my mom!”. Features of her collar I really like are:
- 3M™ Scotchlite™ embedded for bright reflection in the dark
- Waterproof & odor resistant
- Corrosion proof stainless steel hardware
- Lifetime Guarantee
- Seven color options to choose from
- 5 adjustment holes for a good fit
Bailie loves how her collar looks; real fancy, but real sturdy. She will be starting tracking later this summer, where she will need a collar that stands up to the elements and doesn’t have tags jingling as she moves around.
We are really happy with our new collars! dogIDs.com has been a pleasure to work with. Being a small company their customer service is real personalized…just like their collars!
