Product Review: Genuine Collars
My favorite design for anything? Clean lines and high quality. This classic leather collar from Genuine Collars meets both of my criteria. The cut of the collar is simple. The leather is thick and durable. The buckle is sturdy. Though I’ve only used this collar for a few months, I can tell it is designed to last a lifetime. As with all quality items, the price point is high! The collars start at $49.00. Interested in one with studs? Those start at $69.00.
I would love it if these collars came with multiple clasp options. When I’m working Kinsey, I take her collar on and off throughout training. I must have a collar with a quick release. Any buckle is just too hard to undo, so I knew this collar wouldn’t work for her. With this in mind, I requested a small collar and used it on my Golden Retriever puppy, Pippin. The collar went on Pippin and stayed on, so the buckle wasn’t a problem.
I got multiple comments on his new collar. My dog training buddies are brutally honest.
He’ll have to grow into that collar!
That’s too big!
Is that an agitation collar? (I’d never heard of such a thing. So, I learned from Ray Allen’s website that an agitation collar is a wide collar designed to spread the pressure of agitation over the dog’s neck and prevent injury. If you take a look at his agitation collar that is, in fact, just what this collar looks like!)
The problem with the one inch is that it’s too wide for a small dog. (I double checked on the website, and even when you choose a small collar in terms of length, you cannot adjust the width.) So, I didn’t love this collar for Pippin. The scale wasn’t quite right.
In summary, if you have a large dog that doesn’t like the water and you don’t need to take the collar on and off much, Genuine Collars are a high quality option.

I received a small Crazy Horse Leather Dog Collar for free from Genuine Collars. While the collar was free, the opinions are, of course, my own.
