A collar isn't just another adorable fashion accessory for your canine companion. Dogs need to wear a collar. They allow you to have a means to control your pet when necessary and they're an important tool to keep your dog safe.
The right collar will not only look great, but it will also hold your dog's ID tags so she can be identified if she happens to become lost. If a the collar that you select looks great but doesn't fit properly, it could cause physical injury to your pet or allow him to escape his leash.
Can you see why it's so important to choose a durable collar that fits correctly? I was excited to try this option from Angel Pet Supplies because it looks great and claims to be very well made. I wanted to see if it could hold up when worn by our very active Labrador Retriever, Saddie.
Saddie spends a lot of time outside. We walk her every day, she loves to swim, and she doesn't mind going outside in inclement weather.
So, was the Rotterdam Bones collar up to the challenge of our active girl?
It's not often that I find a product that I can honestly say does not seem to have any negative qualities. Not only has this collar held up well, it's comfortable and looks great! I've had many people ask me where we got it when we're out visiting friends or playing at the dog park.

The first thing you'll notice is the durable feel of this collar. It feels strong and you can tell the stitching is tough. While it feels durable, it's also very soft and smooth. I knew that this collar was going to be comfortable enough for Saddie to wear 24/7.
Usually collars are either soft and weak or strong but rigid. The Rotterdam Bones collar offers the perfect combination.
It's available in 9 sizes to fit neck sizes from 6.5″-27″. It's also available in 7 colors, and you can see the beautiful metal bones that offer a unique design. We've gotten TONS of compliments on this collar already, and we've only had it for about a month!
As I explain in my video review, this collar is made of 100% cowhide, making it tough and water resistant. We live in Maine, and we've had a lot of snow this winter. Saddie loves to play outdoors in the snow, and I was skeptical that this collar would hold up. She spends about 6 hours outside every day, and she'll even stay outside while it's snowing.
I'll be interested to see how it holds up when she goes swimming in the summer. On warm days when the snow starts to melt, she comes inside soaking wet. As you can see in the video review above, so far the Rotterdam Bones collar from Angel Pet Supplies shows no signs of cracking or wear.
There are two metal D-rings on this collar. When is used to hold down the access when you buckle the collar, but you can also attach a leash to it if you'd like. The other (shown above) is in the middle of the collar.
It's hard to find anything bad to say about this collar, and that doesn't happen very often. It's durable, comfortable and easy to secure on your pet. What more can you ask for in a dog collar? Angel Pet Products also offers many other collar styles in a variety of patterns and colors.
Depending on the size you need, they sell from $27-$40 on Amazon. While that's quite a bit more expensive than the typical nylon dog collars you'll find at your local big box store, it's very reasonable for a collar of this quality. Similar products don't come any cheaper, and many are even a bit more expensive.
