Our Favorite Summer Dog Collars & Where to Show Them Off

Dogs are the best. They’re always happy to see you, can be great running partners, travel buddies, or happy to just lay on the couch and do absolutely nothing with their humans. As summer rolls around, there are plenty of adventures to be had with your pooch. Whether it’s long, leisurely walks, hikes through the mountains, or trips to the beach, there are tons of new things to see and explore with your four-legged friend.

But with so many people out and about, it’s always important to dress to impress. While that may mean a shopping trip for you, there’s no reason to leave your pet out of the fun! That’s why we’ve assembled a list of our absolute favorite dog collars, as well as a few matching accessories, to keep your furry friend looking their best no matter where your summer adventures take you, as well as some of our favorite places to show off your dog’s new accessories!

Flower Child

For those pet parents looking to kick it back to the 1960s, these fresh and groovy collars are a perfect way to showcase your hippie flair. The Flower Child is made from super-soft, high-grade leather and crafted in Southern California from locally-sourced ingredients. Each flower is delicate, yet sturdily made, and permanently attached to the collar — meaning you never have to worry about it detaching or loosening. The flower is trimmed with white, and each color features white stitching around the edges. Available in lavender, sunshine yellow, pink supreme, blue bliss, purple rain, and orange kiss, these dog collars are the perfect accessory to keep your pet the envy of all your friends.

Rosalicious

If you’re feeling the bling vibe, but your pooch is more of the traditional type, have no fear. The Rosalicious collar is similar to the Flower Child, but with a more refined and classic look. Each collar is embroidered with black thread and features a luxurious leather flower permanently attached to the band itself. In addition to the rose design, the flower is adorned with more than 200 genuine Swarovski crystals, accenting the edges and circling into the center. This collar comes in three colors: LuxeMutt Pink, Violet Femme, and Renegade Red.

Martini Bowties

Bowties have made a comeback lately, and what better way to class up your pet’s look than by adding a classic touch with a signature accessory. Each bowtie is accented with black embroidery thread and expertly crafted with premium leather to the highest standards. The Martini Bowtie collar comes in several colors:

  • Renegade Red
  • Black and White Oreo
  • Seafoam Green
  • LuxeMutt Pink
  • Purplicious
  • Poodle Pink
  • Peacock Blue
  • Country Club Green
  • Violet Femme
  • California Tangerine
  • Basic Black
  • Heart of Gold

Minimalist

While some pets may strive to be the center of attention, others prefer to sit back, relax, and let the attention come to them. For dogs with a more laid-back attitude but whose owners still appreciate a keen sense of style, the Minimalist collection is a perfect choice. Each collar is crafted from premium leather and features a trim of black embroidery. Similar to the Martini Bowtie collars, the Minimalist collection comes in a beautiful array of colors:

  • Seafoam Green
  • LuxeMutt Pink
  • Purplicious
  • Country Club Green
  • Renegade Red
  • Peacock Blue
  • Violet Femme
  • Poodle Pink
  • California Tangerine
  • Basic Black
  • Grapeseed with butterscotch backing and white trim

Harnesses

Some pets are better suited to wear a harness. While many times the choices and styles are limited to mesh and cord, that’s no longer the case. We feature LuxeMutt harness adorned with a classic Martini Bowtie that sits perfectly on the upper side. The bowtie is permanently affixed to the harness, and in typical LuxeMutt fashion, is crafted in California from locally-sourced premium grade leather. Each harness features high-quality nickel-plated attachment rings for leash attachment as well as an adjustable strap to ensure a perfect fit. Choose from seven sizes and the following colors:

  • Renegade Red
  • Peacock Blue
  • LuxeMutt Pink
  • California Tangerine
  • Seafoam Green
  • Poodle Pink
  • Basic Black
  • Violet Femme 

Matching Leashes

Go big or go home, right? We know that sometimes, finding matching accessories is what can make or break an outfit. Why should your pooch have to settle for any less?  Adorn their perfect summer collar with a matching leash for the perfect pup accessory set guaranteed to put all eyes on them. Shoppers can choose from the classic Martini Bowtie leash, the Rosalicious leash, and the Minimalist leash, each in a variety of colors. There is also the choice between slim and full, depending on which thickness you prefer for your leash. Whether you want a perfect match or complementing colors, rest assured you’ll find the perfect pair for your four-legged best friend.

Show It Off

LuxeMutt products are inspired by not only a keen sense of fashion but also a fierce and loyal love of man’s best friend. There are so many places to show off your new favorite dog collar and leash this summer season, and judging from customer reviews and feedback, it’s hard to avoid being noticed when wearing something so classic and eye-catching.

The Minimalist collars are perfect for lounging around the house on a lazy summer day or catching some zzz's by the pool. They also made a great addition to any daily routine, whether it’s running errands, stopping by your favorite brunch place, or taking a hike up the nearest mountain. Or simply wear them out to the local dog park and watch every other owner eye your pup’s beautiful new accessory. In addition to laid-back outings, the fancier styles are perfect for more formal events. Class up your four-legged ring bearer with the Martini Bowtie collar, add a Rosalicious collar to your flower pup, or dance the night away with your favorite pooch and their new Flower Child collar.

Whether you’re shopping for your own furry friend or a gift for another pet parent, the collars, leashes, and harnesses crafted by LuxeMutt are second to none. You can rest assured that regardless of the product you pick, your pup will be perfectly polished thanks to LuxeMutt!
