Thanks for the beautiful spring collar! We've started rotating them with the seasons because they're so much fun and functional🖤
In fact, this is our THIRD Amor collar. They are so beautiful, but most importantly, incredibly high quality. Our dogs always get so many compliments on them!
My puppy is 5 years old and admittedly has had her share of collars. This one is beautiful! By far my favorite one for her!! The leather is comfortable on her neck, and the top is so pretty and is just ‘her!’
I haven’t gotten a picture yet, but will soon and add. Please by this collar is you are sitting on the fence. You’ll be happy you did!! ☺️ 🐶 💜
I absolutely love how this collar looks on my dog! His name is Compadre, so having beautiful Mexican art around his neck is completely appropriate!! We also call him Padre for short to remind us of our favorite beach on Padre Island in Texas... the beautiful colors of this collar remind me of the beach!
I absolutely love the design, colors, and quality. However I was a little disappointed in how it fit on my dog. For the medium size he has to wear it on the very last hole to make it as large as possible. By doing so it never looks quite centered on his neck, like there should be more of the design that wraps around the back. However when I tried the large caller on him, he would have to wear it on the absolute smallest hole and it looked way too big on him. I feel like there needs to be a slight overlap between the medium and the large collars like there is in most other collar brands, or have a medium "long" size available. Like I said though it is beautiful and we are going to keep it. There's just part of me that doesn't think it looks as good on him as it does on my other dog who has the better fit.
Was initially drawn to the colors but then it arrived in less than a week and the quality blew me away! Very well made collar and I get tons of compliments!
