Let's face it, most dogs look good in most colours. But your dog will have a few dog collar colours that suit their coat and character best.

Hindquarters dog collars are available in a rainbow of colours for you and your pup to choose, here is some help.

We use a strong but soft cotton weave teamed with marine grade steel metalwork to make Hindquarters dog collars. The cotton weave is tough and durable and washable, but also gentle. Soft-to-the-touch with flex and 'give', the cotton weave has a slim profile and spreads with movement, making them good collars for busy and active dogs, large or small.

The most distinctive feature of a Hindquarters dog collar is the buckle. When designing our dog collars we wanted a buckle that fastened simply and securely.
Hindquarters dog collars are quick and easy to put on, a bit like fastening an old style airplane seat belt - hold the larger piece of metalwork still and slot the smaller piece through. The smaller piece of metalwork then locks securely in place.

Our dog collars are made from a cotton weave and are suitable for every day use. The cotton weave is strong with flex and 'give' and these dog collars are engineered for ultimate comfort and functionality.
Alongside durable materials, we take a robust approach to how our dog collars are constructed: the steel metalwork is treble stitched into place, by hand in the UK.
Hindquarters collars combine both looks and practicality. They are handcrafted to be pragmatic with a focus on style, when muddy just sling in the washing machine.
Some like to match their dog collar with a matching lead, others like to mix and match, with a stark contrasting colour for the most impactful look.
