Choosing a collar for your Aussie Shepherd

Finding the Perfect Collar: Top Picks for Australian Shepherds

Australian Shepherds are renowned for their intelligence, agility, and boundless energy. Whether you have a working Aussie or a beloved family pet, choosing the right collar is essential for their comfort, safety, and of course style. 

With so many options on the market, it can be overwhelming to select the best one for your furry friend. To help you navigate through the myriad choices, we've compiled a list of the top dog collars tailored specifically for Australian Shepherds.

Harness Collar Combo

For Australian Shepherds who tend to pull on walks or engage in herding behaviours, a harness collar combo offers superior control and comfort. Opt for a harness and collar that is adjustable, for a comfortable fit. This combination provides the best of both worlds, distributing pressure evenly across your dog's body while minimising strain on their neck.

Check out the range of ST ARGO adjustable harnesses and collars - all have 5 holes for adjusting to your dog’s unique shape.


💡Pro-Tip: For an Aussie Shepherd, we recommend our size large collar and harness. Here’s our size guide.


Colourful Collar

Safety is paramount, especially during evening walks or hikes. A bright coloured collar ensures your Australian Shepherd remains visible in low-light conditions, reducing the risk of accidents or lost pets. 

For optimum visibility, we suggest the: soft blue, lilac, ruby red or sage collars from the ST ARGO range.


Water-Resistant Collar

Australian Shepherds are often drawn to water, whether it's a nearby lake, river, or muddy puddle. A collar that is water-resistant is essential for maintaining durability and hygiene, resisting moisture and odours even after hours of play. Look for collars made from water-resistant materials such as nylon, silicone, or vegan leather - with rust-resistant hardware to withstand the elements.

The ST ARGO collar is water-resistant and has rust-proof hardware! The supple vegan leather is finished with an oil coating, which protects it from the elements. With this being said, we recommend cleaning the collar after use in the water, to help maintain cleanliness and longevity of the product.


Training Collar

If you're working on obedience training or behaviour modification with your Australian Shepherd, a training collar can be invaluable. Consider options such as a prong collar or a gentle leader, designed to provide gentle guidance and discourage pulling or lunging. Always consult with a professional trainer before using any training collar to ensure safe and effective usage.

💡Pro-Tip: Remember, when it comes to training, positive reinforcement is key. With this being said, try our handy silicone treat pouch - the perfect dog training gadget to help with positive reinforcement, so you’re never out of treats.

When selecting a collar for your Australian Shepherd, prioritise comfort, durability, and functionality. Take into account your dog's size, temperament, and specific needs to find the perfect fit.

Remember to regularly inspect and replace your dog's collar as needed to maintain safety and security.

With the right collar, your Australian Shepherd will not only look stylish but also stay happy, healthy, and safe on all your adventures together.
