Make Every Walk Stylish with Collars from The French Dog

Looking for cute dog collars that are not only handmade but for dogs of all sizes? See what we think of The French Dog's dog collars here!

Do you like making your dogs look stylish? Personally, I am always on the lookout for super cute things for our girls, especially collars. My biggest issue however is that once they got out of the ‘puppy collars’ (aka small to medium dog collars), our choices are pretty limited. As long as we wanted a brown leather collar or primary color collar, we were fine; anything stylish though, not a chance. For some odd reason, manufacturers seem to assume that big dogs can’t look feminine or cute, which has been something that has made me sad for quite some time. Even places that typically make custom collars often don’t make anything for larger dogs like ours, leaving us with plain or very bland collars (one of the reasons I think most people assume all large dogs are boys).

Wouldn’t it be great if someone made custom collars for dogs of all sizes that aren’t just well made, but stylish too? Well, recently I found the perfect store for dog owners who want stylish dog collars – The French Dog. After taking a look at their stylish and cute dog collars, we were delighted when they asked if they could make collars for Ivi and Rylie in exchange for a review. To say the least, we couldn’t wait for the girls new collars to arrive!

The French Dog: Who Are They?

Are you looking for cute, high quality dog collars, leashes, harnesses, bow ties, and more for your favorite pup? If so, we think you will truly adore The French Dog. Each item at The French Dog is handmade and handcrafted by Karen Dibert, who turned her passion for dogs and sewing into a fun business with the aid of her trusty sidekick and model – Louie, the French bulldog. Part of what makes their dog collars and other products so unique is that they feature a variety of fun patterns and designs in a variety of materials, including cloth and leather, to create fun accessories perfect for dogs of all shapes and sizes. Best of all, she makes products for big dogs too, allowing large dogs like our Alaskan malamutes the chance to show off in ways that before were reserved only for small dogs! To see their full selection of dog products, head over to The French Dog!

The French Dog: Our Thoughts on Their Custom Collars

I will be the first to admit, when I first opened the girls’ collars, I might have been giggling in delight. While we were both expecting these dog collars to be adorable, we were even more impressed with the design and high quality of material and workmanship. These collars were made to not just be a decorative collar, but something to withstand the abuse of being on a dog every day – including walks, bitey face, and the usual canine mischief. We have already gotten so many compliments on their collars too, especially Ivi’s woodland creature collar, which she has been wearing quite proudly and trying to show everyone (miss hot stuff was posing and showing it off from the moment we put it on her).

Even Rylie seemed to really enjoy showing off her collar. While she hasn’t blown coat like Ivi, so it isn’t quite as obviously visible, her green and white flower collar really goes with her personality. We have actually loved the collars so much that we are planning on getting matching leashes from The French Dog to pair with their cute dog collars!

Oh, and I nearly forgot to mention the coolest part of our collars from The French Dog. One of the upgrades you can get is not just a metal clasp, but an engraved clasp with your dog’s name and your phone number. Not only is the collar stylish, but useful since you don’t have to have a tag making noise, being destroyed during play – Rylie loves going after Ivi’s and her own tag – or in the worst case, coming loose from their collar if your companion goes missing. While I have never minded the noise like other dog owners, having their names on the collar is not only safer for them, it also gives more of an elegant, stylish look that is absolutely gorgeous!

Honestly, I don’t think I could be happier with our dog collars and ecstatic that I finally found somewhere that makes stylish, cute dog collars for our girls. Based on our own experience, I am delighted to recommend The French Dog to all my readers and know you won’t be disappointed with anything from their site!

    I like changing my dogs’ collars with the seasons and these collars will give me many choices. Personalizing the collars is a big plus too.

    I really like the engraved clasp instead of the dangling tags. These are very cute and what a great idea of have matching leashes.

      It really is great! I didn’t know how much I would love it until I had an engrave clasp! I feel guilty since right before I ordered the collars I bought the girls new name tags. They are now collecting dust. lol

    These are such cute collars! Plus your two models are adorable…and very stylish with their collars. I don’t have a dog but it would be a fun gift for friends who have dogs.

    I like that these are hand-crafted and in something different than just plain colors. My dog would look so grand in one.

    What darling collars! We’re looking for a new friend for our family and these would be a great way to show them how special.

    There are some really cute designs on this site. But most of them are a bit on the younger or girly side for my son’s tastes. He has two rugged dogs that run around the yard and he has taken hiking. I liked the Bear and Moose Dog Collar because it cake closest to his hobbies. If were ever get another dog for ourselves, there are many styles I would like.

    These collars are some of the most attractive and unique I’ve ever seen. They look like they are very high quality as well. Glad your dogs like theirs. I may have to get one for my pup.

    I like the variety of collars, nice colors and designs. Not having tags is nice.

    I am delighted to have been introduced to The French Dog. They have many patterns I know would look stylish on my 2 black females. My favorite are the flower patterns and they have many. Really like the pineapples and carrots too. We like to change collars for the seasons and holidays so there is a small stash started. I like the upgraded with the name and phone for my beagle who is a runner. She is chipped but having that info readily available makes a lost puppy get home quicker. As for big dog she needs a bell on hers!

    I am looking for a good collar for my huge black lab rescue. He is older and has never been walked obviously. I think I need a halter style so he’s not yanking on it and hurting himself.

    I love their color and leashes. I want the No Pull Harness, Collar and leash. My dog weighs 56 pounds. Whenever he is on the leash he pulls> He is too strong for me. I want to teach him to heel.

    I have a foster dog Samantha that I want to get a cute collar for. It would help her to stand out at adoption events. She’s cute and sweet as pie, but with seven years under her belt and a heart murmur she needs all of the marketing tools that we can bring to bear to help her find her forever home.

    Wow these are the nicest collars ever! And good to know they are sturdy, as it wouldn’t be worth it otherwise! Yea!
