This time of year the hunt begins for the perfect gift for the people – and pets – in your life. It can be so much fun if you know what you're looking to buy. And if you or the person you're hoping to make happy has a pampered pooch, Christmas gift ideas just got easier. That's because the choice of designer dog collars gets better and more enticing, and this season it's reached a new high. You'll be amazed by the range of collars available. Every breed, size and even personality-type of dog is catered to. You can find the perfect pet accessory to brighten up the Christmas season. The elegant Afghan accessorized in the latest haute couture collar will look like she's just stepped off the runways of Paris. A posh pooch might be perfect in pearl studs and the cheeky Chihuahua glitters in crystals or diamante. And what dog wouldn't wow with a beautiful African-themed beadwork collar or colorful embroidery work. You'll find designer studs for the biker dog, even collars manufactured entirely from sustainable substances for an eco-friendly Fido. It's the time of year to have fun and shine; make your home and pets sparkle with seasonal cheer. You can get your dog a special Christmas collar in festive print or seasonal colors, with a Santa pattern, or decorated with baubles and bells. But remember that it must fit correctly. To measure your dog's neck size, run a tape measure around the neck – don't pull it tight – and take a reading (in inches or centimeters, depending on your location). That number will correspond with the size marked on item. To make it easier, they are also sized from mini (the smallest) to x-large. Sure, there will be toys and treats under the tree, but whether you're shopping for a dotty Dalmatian or the loyal Labrador, the dogs can have their day wearing their brand new designer dog collars at Christmas. Designer dog collars make the best gift – it's always nice hearing "jingle bells" around the house as your dog moves. The rhinestone dog collars are also nice.
