    Default Collars: Pet collar or Human collar?

    I can't afford anything fancy, and am pondering pokeing around at Pet Smart, but I figure I should ask here before I blow any money.

    Does anyone have any experience with "pet" collars? (IE one made for pets, not S&M related :P)

    I have no Hot Topic or the like close enough to make those "worth" it. Though their stuff is out of my range at the moment, and not something I'd like to buy anyway. I figure the good stuff is far too expensive for me.

    I bought my collar at a Tractor Supply Company for 9$. It's comfy and has lasted me for more than a year. So I say go with "pet" collars.

    They're not too expensive and the customization is unmatched:

    I have one from collar factory. before I bought this one, I would wear my dog's collar and it was comfortable, but I figured I should get my own. It just depends on what you want, appearance-wise.
    People still call my collar a "dog" collar even though it isn't intended for dogs, but they don't know the difference.

    I went to Petco, picked up a cheap exotic pet collar there for like 10 bucks, lasted for me so far.

    Nothing is pure anymore but solitude.

    10$ one from PetSmart has lasted me a while.
    I prefer that kind, I hate most human collars.
    The collarfactory ones are good, too expensive for me,
    but most other human collars are way too big and just feel wierd.

    Alright guys, what's the appeal in collars? Honest question. I know that for most people out there it's a symbol of being a submissive.

    What about in the case of furries? I know it's different for every person, but that's why I'm asking. Is it submission? Or is it just to symbolize being a fur? Or both?

    I might be interested in wearing one to symbolize the latter, but the message is a bit ambiguous so I'd be hesitant to don it in public.

    Same question, I don't understand collars...

    Although maybe a cute teal one...that sounds appealing xD

    Mines a dog collar. Fairly good quality but generally plain old leather one. Theres a picture of it at the Collars thread.

    I agree Cronus about human collars. I looked at a few in the internet and they tend to be more "stylish" for my tastes. Besides, this being the furry fandom, wearing an animal collar instead of human collar is sort of the point isn't it? :P

    I guess it comes from the collar being associated with animals and is, perhaps, a way of representing that animal side somehow, hence a display of furriness. Although if you see it that way, it goes deep into the Fridge Logic territory about how collars are a human device and etc...

    Its probably something that was used somewhere and stuck to a furry fashion statement.

    I honestly don't know what its appeal to me was. I decided to get it while I was passing by a petshop. I had every logical reason not to get it. And while I was initially unsure about the whole thing, I noticed I liked the way it looked once I put it on.

    I agree the ambiguity of the message regarding the S&M thing. As for wearing it publicly, it depends on the size and mindset of where you live as well as the collar itself, should you buy one. My collar(brown) tends to blend fairly well with my shirts. And if you are concerned about comments/questions from people you know, you can always take it off when you are near them.

    hot topic collars suck. trust me.

    My first collar was a large cat collar. But that was when I was in like 7th grade so my neck was smaller than it is now.

    But yeah, that'd probably work fine.

    Hmm...I wear one, and for me, I just think they look cool and they are very comfortable and fun to wear. I'm certainly not submissive.

    Cat collar would be too small probably. Atleast it seems like they should be.

    That's another thing I don't like about it. I prefer to wear a "real" collar, one that an actual animal would wear, instead of one made for a human. That defeats the purpose of it being a collar. I know someone who wears a human collar and it just kind of annoys me. I think it's too big and fancy.

    Haha mine is just a dog collar from PetSmart, and it's very comfy. It's actually a Aspen Pet Signature™ Blue Shimmer Adjustable Dog Collar. ^^

    well, i have both dog collars and human collars. i can easily say that human collars dont last as long but are slightly more comfortable depending the brand. my dog collar is a metal chan link, and it hasnt shown any signs of wear or tear at all, but my human leather is starting to crack and fade, but the metal is so heavy and sticky when you sweat.
    furry i be, dont ya love it?

    Found one at Pet-co. Nice leather one, about 20 bucks, and cheaper for the smaller sizes, and me being 14, i can probably nail the 14 dollar one.

    Now on the topic why, I agree with prettylilpup. They just look cool, and there suuuuupppppeeeerrrrr comfy. I'd only buy a dog collar though. I hate most human collars, and a simple, brown or maroon dog collar matches most of my clothing.

    It's an accessory, just like clip-on ties for the chicks. Nothing different. It's definitely something i've always liked, and the fandom made it ok, and showed me it's not really a Sexual, submission thing.

    That's it for me.

    I wear a cat collar, I'll prolly get a collar factory one later on but these work to the same effect. To me it's like having a furry mark and anyone who knows about furries should recognize it as such. Also to the other collar wearers, have you ever noticed when you wear it for a long time then take it off, you can still kind of feel it there. And a pic for the people who want it http://www.furaffinity.net/view/2155913/

    Yes. It's a thread i made back when i was deciding wither or not i should go out and get one. Very helpful. It has info on how to confront pet store clerks and such if you do go out and get an animal one. Stupid person, hasn't paid me my 40 bucks, hence why i haven't went out an bought one yet. I'm just gonna measure my neck, and say it's for a Boarder Collie, if they ask.

    No, seriously, go search it. It helped me a lot on deciding what i needed and where i should get it.
