Why Dog Collars Are Essential for Your Pet's Well-Being

Dog collars are an essential accessory for any dog owner. Most importantly, they serve as a means of identification and can help in finding your pooch in the event that they get lost. However, there are many other reasons why dog collars are important for your pet.

Let's get into it.

Arguably one of the most important reasons for fitting your dog with a collar is for safety purposes. Unfortunately, accidents can (and do) happen, often when you least expect them, and it's best to be prepared. One of the main ways a collar can help during a time of crisis, is that a collar with identification tags can help someone find your pet and return them to you if they get lost. Additionally, experts say that collars serve as an immediate visual cue to others that your dog has a home and is in fact, not a stray. Therefore, they are less likely to take them into a shelter, or leave them alone, and it is more likely that your pet will be returned to you quicker. 

Let's face it, we never want our pooch to get out, run off or go missing. But it does happen. Having a collar can aid in quick identification and safe return of your beloved pooch.

Another reason why dog collars are important is for training purposes. Collars can be used to guide and train your dog to obey commands and can also be used in agility training. A well-trained dog is a happy dog, and a collar can help you achieve that goal. There are many different types of collars available, and each one serves a specific purpose. It's important to choose the right collar for your dog's needs.

Health Benefits

Dog collars are not just a fashion accessory, they have many safety and health benefits for your pet. Here are some of the main reasons we stand behind using a dog collar for your fluffy bestie:

Prevention of Loss

One of the most significant health benefits of using a dog collar is that it can help prevent your dog from staying lost. A collar with a tag that contains your dog's name, address, and phone number can help someone who finds your lost dog to return it to you. In addition, a collar with a GPS tracker can help you locate your dog in case it gets lost. In fact, you will even be able to tracking your pooch from your phone with certain apps - cool! It's so important to have your dog easily identifiable, that there are laws in every state of Australia requiring dog owners to not only microchip and register their pooch with the local council, but also having an ID tag on them for identification purposes, in case of the worst.

A dog collar with a tag that contains your dog's name, address, and phone number can also help identify your dog in case of an emergency. If your dog gets injured or sick, someone who finds your dog can contact you or take your dog to a veterinarian. Luckily for you, there has never been a better time to purchase a groovy pet ID tag. There are THOUSANDS of pet ID tags on the market, you are spoilt for choice. Some have cute little tag lines like 'Mama's Boy', or 'Always Hungry', they come in a range of sizes, shapes and colours. Some come with crystals inlaid and most have the option to completely customise with your details - how fun. For a wide arrange of ID tag options, we recommend checking out Etsy.

Using a dog collar is highly beneficial for training your dog. A collar can be used to attach to a leash, which naturally helps you control your dog's movements. A collar can also be used to teach your dog basic commands such as "sit" and "stay." In addition, a collar can be used to correct unwanted behaviour such as jumping on people or chewing on furniture. Check out our blog post on training your puppy on a leash.

Overall, using a dog collar is an essential part of responsible pet ownership. It can help prevent your dog from getting lost, identify your dog in case of an emergency, and assist in training your dog.

Safety Benefits

Dog collars offer many safety benefits to your pet. Here are some of the most important ones:

Control and Restraint

A dog collar is essential for controlling and restraining your pet. It provides a secure attachment point for a leash, which allows you to guide your dog's movements. This is especially important when walking your dog in public places or around other animals. Additionally, a collar is a great idea for a puppy, because it is lightweight and less confronting than fitting them with a harness. A well-fitted collar can give you the confidence to keep your dog under control, even in the most challenging situations. Interested in a puppy collar?

Medical Alert

Finally, dog collars can serve as a medical alert for your pet. Many collars come with tags that contain important information, such as your pet's name, your contact information, and any medical conditions your pet may have. This can be critical in the event that your pet gets lost or injured. A well-designed collar can help ensure that your pet receives the care they need in an emergency.

Overall, dog collars offer many safety benefits to your pet. By providing control and restraint, improving visibility in low light, and serving as a medical alert, a well-designed collar can help keep your pet safe and secure.

Style and Fashion

Dog collars are not only important for the safety and security of your pet, but they can (and are) also a fashion statement. So many of our customers enjoy accessorising their furry bestie's with collars that reflect their personal style. 


One way to add a personal touch to your dog's collar is by adding their name and your contact information. This can be especially helpful if your pet ever gets lost. This can easily be done by adding a little ID tag to your collar. The ST ARGO dog collar come with a handy d-slot which allows you to attach an ID tag of any size! Plus, the super supple material is perfect for embossing. Simply take it to your local leather smith (such as Mister Minnit) and they can easily emboss your pup's name on the collar, very economically. Personalised collars can also be a great way to show off your pet's personality. For example, if you have a playful dog, you may opt for a collar with bright colours or fun patterns. Or why not accessorise your dog for the season? For example, ST ARGO as Australia heads into winter, try dressing your pooch in wintery colours such as our Ruby Red, Navy or, our latest release: Brown.


Collars can also be adorned with various funky attachments, such as bows, flowers, or charms. These small additions can add a touch of personality to your pet's collar without being too overwhelming. Some pet owners even match their dog's collar to their own outfits, making for a fun and coordinated look.

When it comes to style and fashion, it's important to keep in mind that safety should always come first. Make sure that any accessories you add to your pet's collar are securely attached and do not pose a choking hazard. Additionally, collars should always fit properly and not be too tight or too loose.

Overall, adding a touch of style and fashion to your dog's collar can be a fun way to show off their personality and your personal style. Just remember to prioritise safety and choose accessories that are comfortable and secure for your furry friend.
