Searching for a new orange dog collar? Whether you have a hunting dog that needs a bright orange collar to be spotted in the field, or you just love a fun, bold color, we have all the best orange dog collars listed here!
Listed below are a variety of orange collars, including climbing rope collars, waterproof Biothane, unique prints, and more. And the best part is, all of these options are available in a traditional collar style, or can be upgraded to be used with your Fi dog GPS tracking module.
How To Choose The Best Collar For Your Dog:
There's quite a few things to consider when purchasing the right collar for your dog - How big are they? Are they still growing? Do they like to swim a lot? Are they super strong?
First thing to consider is the material of the collar - if you have a dog that swims a lot or loves to roll around in mud and dirt, then a cotton or nylon collar isn't going to last them too long. For dogs like this, you'll want an easy to clean, waterproof option like Biothane or waterproof coated canvas.
Now, how big is your dog? Not necessarily how much they weigh, but their body dimensions. If your dog has a shorter neck, like a pug or any smaller breed dog, you'll want to find a collar with a thinner band - 3/4" is probably best, and no bigger than 1". For dog's with longer necks, 1.5" collars will be the best option. Not sure? 1" collars are always a safe bet and are the most common.
If your dog is very strong and pulls a lot on walks, you're going to want to make sure to pay attention to the hardware on the collar. Cobra or Fidlock buckles are great for huge dogs or strong pullers as they offer even more security than your standard buckle. If you have a tiny pup, you're going to want to look for a plastic buckle rather than a metal one to reduce the amount of weight on their neck.
Now let's take a look at the best orange dog collars around:
First up we have Rope Hounds. Crafted from climbing rope, these collars are lightweight and adjustable, have reinforced stitching on all stress points, and utilize an aluminum D-ring for a strong, yet lightweight, leash attachment point.
Next on our list is Mutt Pack Outfitters! All Mutt Pack collars are made of Biothane - a durable, waterproof material that will hold up against any adventure. Mutt Pack's orange dog collars are great for dogs that love to swim or roll around in the mud, as they are super easy to clean, or for hunters looking for a reflective option so their dog can easily be spotted in the field.
Lucky + Dog's collars are for the more chic pup! Made with brass hardware and ultra durable poly-cotton webbing, these orange collars are a must have.
They also donate a portion of their sales to animal rescues!
Now for the more hardcore option in this line up - the Modern Icon 1.5" Summit Collar. This heavy duty tactical collar features a magnetic Fidlock buckle which prevents the buckle from opening when force is applied (or you can upgrade to a Cobra buckle) and has a minimalist design, meaning there are fewer moving parts and potential for failure.
Banded Pines collars are great because they offer a similar waterproof feature as the Biothane ones, but come in a variety of patterns and colors! Each collar is treated with a waterproof coating over the canvas, giving it the look and feel of a canvas collar, but the durability and flexibility of a waterproof collar.
Bet you haven't seen a collar quite like this before, have you? Hypnotic Dog Co collars are definitely unique, but don't let the fun, colorful beads fool you - these collars are STRONG. Like, virtually unbreakable strong. These collars are crafted with aircraft grade steel wire with a tensile strength of about 380lbs, meaning this collar will last you and your dog a lifetime. We know you're impressed.
Gray and Hound offers a wide selection of adorable designs that are exclusive to their shop - you won't find collars like these anywhere else!
Among all of their options, they offer 5 orange collars - Retro Stripes (top left), Honey Grizzly Bear (top right), Harvest Plaid, and their signature "Wild" collars in Honey (top middle) and Monarch (bottom right).
How To Measure Your Dog's Collar Size:
Ready to snag one of these great collars? For a proper fit, make sure to measure your dog's neck and don't just guess!
- Measure a few inches down from their head and then add an inch for very small dogs or two inches for medium and large dogs.
- Pull the tape snug but not tight. (If you don't have a tape measure or its too stiff, you can use a piece of string and then measure the string with a rigid ruler)
- This extra space allows enough room to slip two fingers between the collar and the dog's neck (the “Two Fingers” rule)
- When you slide the width of your two fingers between the collar and neck, the collar should feel snug, but not tight.
