    It's Matrix's 9th birthday in April and I want to get him a new collar, but I'm having some trouble picking one out!

    This is Matrix

    This is his current collar

    I want something kind of "manly", nothing black, nothing brown.
    I really like these few by Etsy seller Jacqpot

    But I find the first one too girly, the second one I feel would look "halloween" again his black/grey coat, and the third one I think would pop TOO much.

    What do you think??

    I'd stay away from anything white or yellow if he'll be wearing it for more than just special occasions - it's amazing how fast light colors can get dingy looking!

    I prefer his current collar to the ones you listed, honestly.

    I really love the first one too, but I agree. I'll keep looking :p His current collar suits him so perfectly, but it's getting worn out from being washed every few months because as stardogs said, light colours get dirty fast!

    Is this TOO manly? My mom loves it, but I'm not so sure.

    I don't see it as too manly. It would look good on either sex dog :)

    For this particular dog, I'm not really a fan of any of the ones listed.

    Have you ever checked out Collarmania? TONS of fabrics to choose from!

    I love all the options at collarmania, except the price of shipping is close to the price of the collar.

    I'll keep looking :p Thanks for the help everyone!

    I REALLY like that blue one. I don't see it as super manly. I'd put it on my female dog. Blue is her color anyway :D
