Just like people enjoy wearing different styles and colors of clothing, to express a mood, compliment their coloring, suit a season or display Holiday spirit, dogs also enjoy being stylish because of all the extra attention they receive when they are dressed in their best.

Depending on the one you choose, a leather can be a very trendy style. They are available in many colors, can be flat or rolled leather, and can be decorated with fancy stitching or adorned with an endless variety of studs. Studded varieties include spikes and rhinestones, as well as plethora of other designs.

An embroidered dog collar is great for identification purposes and would fall into the functional style category. These collars can be embroidered with anything from a name and phone number to a sports symbol, a hunting theme, or any number of fashionable patterns. Embroidered collars come in many colors as well as widths and buckle systems.

Although stripes and polka dots are still in a rhinestone dog collar is all the rage for classy dogs. The tough look is also popular so a heavy leather dog collar with spikes would be a great choice for the rough and rugged type.

You can also find snakeskin, zebra or leopard prints, or if you prefer look for gingham, striped or spotted. Any of these designs can elevate the look of your pampered pooch.

For a real classy "run-way" look you may want to choose a designer dog collar from one of the well known designer labels such as Louis Vuitton or Coach. These collars usually have form over function and are built on the premise that a collar needs to transcend mere collar status to offer an attractive and unique look.
