Basenji Collars?

Hi There,

I was at a show yesterday and looking at all the beautiful collars they had on sale. Every Basenji needs a bit of bling afterall 😃 I was trying to work out what collar would be best for Maya when she gets a bit bigger. They are completely different shape to my labs and pugs, so hopefully you guys can help me out, these are the types i was looking at:

Whippet style collar:

Normal style collar:

Soft bling whippet collar:

(they even have a special puppy version lol)

Any other suggestions?? (Or do pick a favourite lol)

I have lots of collars for Tillo, but I especially like the Whippet style collar!
Love the one on the photo! (Where can I find it? 😃 ;))

The top one?

That is from Hide and Collar:

Hey Maya,

I ordered mine ( five of them !!!) at this site (I believe it's in Canada).

They are all handmade, very good service too, although not cheap 😞
The leading lady of the company is familiar with Basenjis, she had a few when she was a kid.

Greetings

Oahhh NOOOOOO…..
I am such a sucker for collars. I have one for every day of the week practically!
LOL
I really like the blue martengale...very beautiful.

I like the soft whippet collar, that is pretty. I am not a fan of leather dog stuff even though I'm a horse person. Go figure. lol

Funny you made a collar post today, I just got done taking pictures of some of my collars to show my harness maker.

Around here everyone has around 3 collars. I try not to splurge at all on collars, but when I find a great maker and designs that work for me I do spend a little. But I have wheeled and dealed to keep it reasonable. 🙂

I have plain flat web buckle collars, like the ones you get at the pet store. I think they're made by Coastal? Those are for daily training sessions and agility/rally trials. Then we have very decorative nylon buckle collars for most traveling, daily walks, and public appearances. These keep the dog tags on them. I managed to find what I wanted for everyone, and love the quality. They are by Wiggles Wags, & Whiskers. http://www.wiggleswagswhiskers.com/ Then I also have the decorative nylon safety chokes from Nick Russell, a fellow Basenji owner. His website doesn't work anymore, but I think he can still be contacted at k9collars@aol.com. Nice quality and very reasonable prices. These are my other travel/public collars for when I don't want jingly tags or need the extra support of a choke. I don't usually have problems with dogs slipping collars so I have used the buckle collars more and more these days as they're easier to put on/off. I rarely ever leave a collar on a dog.

I do like the decorative wide sighthound martingales that I see a lot, but have never used any. They're often out of my price range or I don't like the trims they use. I am picky with collars. 🙂

They are selling some NICE collars at http://www.wiggleswagswhiskers.com/ ..!!!

This one is my favorite:

Not planning a trip to Germany for a collar.. 😃

Why is that style so widely used with whippets? Is there some special advantage to it?

Janneke, maybe they will ship one to you? I know that WWW won't deal directly with owners, but maybe some of the vendors/stores that carry them will be willing to ship to you?

Wizard, they usually use those collars for whippets and other sighthounds because the head is very narrow and not much bigger than the neck. Collars easily slip off so they often use a martingale style. Also they make them extra wide so they don't cut into the dog, it makes it more comfortable since they tend to have longer thin delicate necks. They're not heavily muscled like other breeds. And if they pull like Basenjis, it's good to have a wider collar to spread the pressure out! 🙂 Less likely to damage the trachea.
