Amazing people making amazing collars. More than price I'm just a wimp at deciding what I want, there for I am having Ana make me one for each girl when she visits next week.

Yes,they are expensive but I would rather buy less collars and know that their quality will hold,their life.
Go for it, you wont regret it.
I like the 1in collars best,on my dogs and so do they!.

I don't think they are expensive for what you get. There is a lifetime guarantee with these collars. If your dog passes away, they will make your collar into a bracelet. The people who work there are amazing and will make sure you LOVE your collar. Spending $60+ on one collar (well, if you have self control and don't buy more lol) is better than spending $20 every 2 years on collars that fall apart.

Here's my favorite Paco I own... Chloe's "wave" collar:

It's chocolate and silver, 3/4".

Here's Chloe's X-Dog that was tan, and as you can see it darkened up a ton:

Some of our collars... I sold the Swirl in the picture, though.

Emma's super tiny "star" collar... it's 3/8" inch (she's a 3lb dog!):

I would have no problem paying $60 for a leather collar - I have before on numerous occasions! However, if I were to get the Veronica for Quinn I'm looking at $95 plus shipping. $115 if I wanted to make it a martingale.

$60 I would do without a second thought - over $100 I'm hesitant. Sounds like I just need a Chihuahua lol! I love Emma's tiny little collar, it suits her beautifully.

Yeahh most if the ones I like will run me $90+.

I really want one but it's hard to justify when I make my own cotton print collars so can customize colors and patterns however I want and can make them a new collar every year for the rest of their life and never hit $90...even for all three dogs combined...

But still, I want. I love good leather.

They start at $60 so I just put that down. They can get expensive, but they're totally worth it if you can swing the price. PCANSA on FB has some great deals. I've seen some expensive large collars for very low prices.

And yes you do need a chi!

I was too late to edit my last post so now I have 2 in a row

I'd rather spend more money on collars to insure they will actually last. I've had nothing but excellent customer service from the folks at Paco, and every custom collar has surpassed my expectations.

I love their new "Paco Perks" program. So far I have 3 collars towards my free one, and I plan on taking full advantage of it!

And... the resale is awesome on them. I've listed a few collars on PCANSA and they've always sold within a couple of days at the most.

I wish I could justify the price because there are some I really like the looks of. But we use our gun dog supply collar for going out and getting dirty, and her cheap Petco collar (which I think looks awesome, anyway) for all the times in-between when she just needs something to have tags on. For a while I used to be obsessed with buying collars, and I'm finally at the point now where I can stop and think... do I need it?

I do really like "The Glow" but I just... can't do it. lol. There are so many other things I put off buying because they are $100.

I still can't believe I spent the money on a Fetching Tag! But my cheap tags DO keep fading, whereas my cheap collars hold up fine.

I...wish I liked them. I just don't find them attractive, and then I think I must be broken because everyone else on here fawns over them so much. I just find them bulky looking and not at all girly for my little princess.

But then, I put my dog in flowers and bows. I justify it by saying that with so much fluff, it's the only part of the collar that actually shows.
