I've thought about the collar covers, could probably make it look super awesome that way! For now the bandana works. I don't care about people seeing it or being judged or anything, I just really really hate the look of it lol. I like my dogs to have pretty collars on in public. It's been working really well though. The overexcited "OMG IT'S ANOTHER DOG!!!" behavior hasn't even existed the 2 times she's worn it.
