The World of Designer Dog Collars and Leashes

These days there is designer everything – including dog supplies. You can find all kinds of stylish supplies and accessories, including designer dog collars and leashes. For example, there are dog collars and leashes printed with fancy designer logos. Then there are ones made from fine materials like premium leather. Some are made from organic fabrics like cotton and hemp. What makes a collar and/or leash designer would be the manufacturer, the quality and the style. You don’t have to settle for boring accessories for your dog as there are so many fashionable choices.

The first thing you’ll need before shopping is your dog’s neck measurement. You should be able to comfortably slip two fingers between the collar and your dog’s neck. If you can bring your dog along when you shop (some pet stores allow this) you may be able to try the collar on before you buy it. There are many different kinds of leashes. The most traditional is the simple fabric leash that can be as short as 5 feet and extend from there. There are leashes that can be adjusted to give your dog more or less slack. Leather leashes are durable and will last you a long time.

Varieties of Designer Dog Bowls

One of the most important purchases you will make for your dog are their food and water bowls. These days there are designer dog bowls that look stylish while serving a valuable purpose. They go above and beyond the average plastic feeding bowls. There are hand painted ceramic bowls that are heavy so your dog cannot tip them over, and adorned with various colors and patterns. You can even special order designer dog bowls painted or engraved with your dog’s name. There are also decorative and functional mats to go under feeding bowls to keep the floor clean from spills.

Some designer dog bowls are raised off the ground for larger dogs and for dogs whose ears may drag in their food or water. There are shiny silver tone bowls that coordinate with everything and are stable enough to avoid tipping or being dragged around. You can even find automatic feeding systems that dispense food and water at specific times. This is ideal if you are going away for a few days but don’t want to board your dog. You should have someone come by a couple times daily to take your dog out and check on him or her.
