Terrier Dog Collars – Form, Fashion & Function

terrier dog collarsI am a sucker for terrier dogs. I just love the way they look. Terriers are very athletic in both their behavior and physique. And I love the way they are groomed – at least those that require regular grooming  (Staffordshire, Rat and Jack Russell Terriers are, of course, a few exceptions to this). Most terrier grooming styles require a tight cut around the neck, back and upper chest and a gradual shift to longer hair on the body and legs. This streamlined grooming style draws attention to the neckline and shoulders, making the perfect backdrop for stunning terrier dog collars. By stunning, I don’t mean loud or bright. Terrier Dog Collars can be of beautiful fabrics in subtle colors, so long as they compliment a terrier’s coat color. I know this sounds corny, but all it seems to take to dress up a terrier is a really nice dog collar – no clothes required!

For those of you that shop my online store, you may have noticed that I use Mini-Schnauzers for my models. Those Mini’s are my fur kids, Max & Tilde, and were the were the inspiration for our Plaid Dog Collars and Charms. Their neckline offers a great backdrop to a nice plaid dog collar, especially my charm collars, because the charm really pops! Believe me, if I had any kind of terrier – Airedale, Kerry Blue, Wheaton, Westie or Scottish Terrier, I would be equally inspired.

So what type of plaid collar looks best on a terrier? Depending on their coat color, almost any Plaid or tartan dog collar will look great. Most terriers hail from the highlands, of which plaid fabrics come in hundreds of different patterns and represent many family names. Most folks with Scottish Terriers look specifically for plaids, and it is not uncommon for a Scottie’s owners to buy plaid dog collars exclusively because of the popularity of plaid on this breed. But plaids have grown in popularity among all dog owners. Take, for example, the Burberry Plaid. Influenced by the London Blackberry Plaid, Burberry dog collars are highly sought after by dog owners seeking a designer look for their dog. So it goes without saying that plaid dog collars are are smart, stylish, and are a breath of fresh air when compared to your everyday department store dog collar.

As many of you know, The Artful Canine offers a huge array of plaid dog collars. We have two new plaid tartans coming soon (Douglas & Black Watch), so bookmark our Plaid Dog Collars page if you are in the market for a new dog collar!
