They should have a program like with saddles, where they ship you "trial" versions to test before you purchase your own Or maybe I just need to talk myself into going to Cynosport next year so I'm in there neck of the woods and the dogs can try collars on.

Completely and totally worth it! I've not had a single complaint with mine (4 collars, 1 leash). The collars have been through herding, dock diving, lakes, hiking, walks, bike rides, etc. My experience with their costumer service has been nothing but positive and speedy.

I haven't had a custom piece done, but I would imagine it depends greatly on the width and single vs. double layer. I would imagine somewhere in the $100-$125 range. But. You get a LIFETIME guarantee! If a stone pops out, they'll replace it. If something breaks when it shouldn't, they'll fix it.

I've tried another leather/rope collar leash company before and was very unhappy with the quality. Their leather started bleeding when in water.

This my stash so far: top-bottom: Brown George, Tan JoJo, Chocolate El Dorado, Chocolate Zuma, Chocolate Leash.

You should! Most of them go lightening fast! I believe the last one I bought was up for a matter of a few minutes before I snatched it up (and good thing, two others wanted it!)

I know! Haha! I actually had to sell a new collar lately that I hoped would work for Tucker, but it just didn't. It sold so quickly on Facebook at least!

I bet their new Tween line would work out great for your two. They're supposed to be light weight like the small dog collars, I believe.

I've only ever had one stud fall out... and they righted it ASAP. I've been a loyal Paco customer for years, and I adore their products. I'm totally ok with paying what they charge.



The middle collar on the right "pillar" - the 1.25" double-layer black collar with the brass hardware... is the famous "Shipwreck" collar. It sat in floodwater for three months (partially submerged) and it still looks that good... and lost zero functional integrity. That collar is basically what sold me on Pacos for life.

They really are just stunning. I'm really loving the Unicorn Deluxe, the Mini Swirl and the Mini Riesy. Darken isn't an issue for me, since Nola would be in black leather.

I won a cat collar almost 5 years ago in a contest. My cat has worn it daily since then. It's in perfect condition! I don't yet have a dog collar from them but I want one. Particularly a Swirl collar for my Em. But the price has always prevented me from buying. Maybe someday I'll be lucky enough to have some spare cash while they're having a sample sale on FB.

I know with Gage, even at 170lbs when most dogs his size pull off 2-3" collars, he looks goofy in anything wider then 1" because of his short rotty neck lol.

Here he is in his 1" Celtic.


And his double layer Shermin which was 2.5" I believe (I sold it long ago lol) he just didn't seem comfortable in it at all. Now only his martingale is wider then 1"

^^ ditto!

Well, I really shouldn't have looked at their Paco Perks. 5% off your order, use it 5 times and you get a free collar.
