    So Strider's collar is looking really tatty and sorry after 4 years of use. It's getting frayed and I don't want to risk it breaking on a walk, so it's on to the great collar hunt!

    I really like the durability of the original collar. If Charlie didn't chew it up it wouldn't be fraying now, and it's a good combination of strength and flexibility. Not too stiff or floppy, so he can't back out of it (he can back out of Kaia's).

    Also looking for a 1.5" martingale, so if you guys know of any under $30 that are really good let me know! I like brocades. Leather is awesome but not expecting to find one at that price. Bonus if it's a collar that Kaia would look good in too.

    I LOVE this for Kaia

    ETA: Here's a reference picture of Strider with the old collar. He's red brindle with a white ruff.

    I have two collars from here for Rumor. I love them! http://persnicketypup.com/

    Out of the four you posted, I really like #1 and #4. I think I like #4 a bit more than #1.

    I like #1 and #2, but I can't decide which one I like better of the two.

    Argh, three of them are tied so far. lol.

    I might have to get a couple of them. Number 2 would be really pretty on Kaia, and they switch collars a lot... It just means saving up a little longer.

    I like #1 myself. Great picture by the way!
    Here are some places I have found that have great inexpensive martingales.

    http://www.etsy.com/shop/thedogtailor
    Very dangerous to my wallet to find $12 martingales, then I can justify buying all the dogs new collars ......yet again!
    Also I have to toss this in, sadly Anja only makes buckle collars but if you are looking for some wow hers can't be beat!
