WHAT COLOUR COLLAR FOR MY DOG?

WHAT COLOUR COLLAR FOR MY DOG?

We have rounded up a few of our favorite furry friends sporting their Hindquarters dog collars. To help you decide what colour dog collar is best for your best friend.

We have a rainbow of colours for you and your pup to choose from so here is some help.

Make a big splash with a red dog collar. We start by demonstrating how our red dog collars works for a range of sizes from small to Large dog collar size. Roll out the red carpet for Chip a handsome Dachshund in his red collar and lead set:

We use a strong but soft cotton weave teamed with marine grade steel metalwork.

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.

Red alert - Bella, a beautiful Frenchie, in her red cotton collar:

A bright red dog collar looks stunning against brown fur. Scout in his red dog collar and lead:

The most distinctive feature of a Hindquarters collar is the buckle. 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.

A red dog collar looks particularly striking against a white or black coat. Pablo, a Bedlington Terrrier, wearing his red dog collar:

Natural fibres are kinder and non abrasive, a tight weave gives strength and durability but the collar retains a soft feel allowing free movement and maximum comfort for your dog, be they youthful and bouncing around or a senior dog looking to relax in comfort.

Or perhaps you are looking for something more subtle like a grey dog collar. A grey dog collar suits a dog with a grey or white coat as any stray hairs are less visible.

Fade to grey, Chip sports his grey dog collar:

The marine grade steel we use is lightweight, strong and corrosion-proof. It's the type of steel used on yacht fittings, for reliability and to withstand the seas and salt air. And looks fabulous against grey or black cotton weave.

Black also works well for black dogs - our Percy dressed in black:

Green is a popular colour choice when it comes to a dog collar and lead. Perhaps because it is so versatile: not only looks great with all kinds of fur colour a green dog collar works as both a country classic and a smart urban option. Practical too with its natural camouflage ability to hide the odd mud splat.

All Hindquarters dog collars are sturdy and machine washable at 40.

Our cotton weave dog collars are suitable for every day use and work for all sorts. The cotton weave is strong with flex and 'give' and these dog collars are engineered for ultimate comfort and functionality.

We reimagined the standard dog collar from materials to design, including our revolutionary slot-and-lock closure system that is safe and easy to use:

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, using strengthened thread.

Next we demonstrate how versatile blue is when it comes to choosing a dog collar. It goes with a black, brown or white coat - and anything in between.

An adjustable dog collar ensures a perfect fit - and is good for growing pups.

Wearing blue on black is one of those fashion rules you should definitely break, as demonstrated by Gus, a black Lab:

Finally, make the boys wink with a pink dog collar. Sinking the pink, Kimber wears his pink dog collar with aplomb:

Just add a tag - all Hindquarters dog collars come with an ID tag which we can hand engrave if you'd like. 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.
