I was recently contacted by Good Dog Day and asked if I’d be willing to review one of their collars. Since I actually own a shirt that says “Collar Addict” on it, it seemed like a pretty good fit for what our blog is about, so I agreed, really looking forward to seeing what the new collar would end up looking like. The Greyhounds have quite a collection of cute and pretty collars, so I thought it would be a nice change of pace for the Shepherds to have their chance at modeling some collars, and Küster stepped up to the plate this time.
Good Dog Day is a collar subscription service and the collars are all made in the United States. Every month, there’s a new collar that comes in the mail to surprise you. It’s something fun to look forward to in the mail. You can buy a single collar, or get a two, three, six or twelve month subscription. I think it would be a great gift for a new dog owner, or for your own dog. After all, it’s nice to be able to change collars for different occasions and to have something nice show up in the mail.
The package our collar arrived in was its own little work of art. It was very pretty on the outside (the smudges in the ink are from Flattery’s investigation when it arrived) and it was well presented when the package was opened, too. It was a great surprise to get for ourselves, but if you send it as a gift, it is a really nice extra touch. I was definitely impressed at first glance, but of course there are other things that are important when you buy a collar, too.
The collar we got was well-constructed, cute, durable enough for everyday wear and I couldn’t find anything that worried me about how it was made. Some collars that we see are made cheaply or with substandard materials, but this collar was really nice. It had sturdy hardware with hard plastic buckles and a solid D-ring. There were no threads sticking out anywhere, either. Küster has worn it all week and it still looks very nice on him. It hasn’t stretched out any, either, which we watch for, especially with Mister Puller.
I personally like things that are unique and not like what everyone else has, and these collars fit that bill. They aren’t sold in pet stores. Your dog will look adorable and not like every other pup at the dog park. They have sizes to fit small, medium and large dogs with necks from 8 to 20 inches around. Good Day Dog also donates gently used collars to a local rescue where Zoey, the company’s inspiration, was adopted from. Best of all, these collars won’t break the bank. It’s fifteen dollars a month for a subscription and there’s no shipping fee. That’s an extra bonus on the surprise, if you ask me.
You can find Good Day Dog on Twitter, Facebook and their website.
We received one collar from Good Day Dog for this review. We weren’t compensated in any other way. Tales and Tails does not endorse products that we wouldn’t feel comfortable using ourselves.
