Dog Jewelry - Perfect For Making Your Dog Look Hip And Cool

Feb 13, 2008
There are a number of ways to make sure you have the dressiest dog on the block.

The dog accessories market is massive. There are jewelry pieces of all shapes and forms to make sure your pooch is the best looking when it comes time to take a walk.

If you want to add jewelry to your dog's wardrobe, you need to know a few things about the relationships between dogs and dog jewelry.

First, not all dogs are going to like the idea of wearing dog jewelry. While you will probably be able to get away with a jewel studded collar, if your dog is used to wearing a collar, some of the other pieces, like tiaras, may not be something your pet is open to.

Second, while when it comes to many accessories it is advised to start young with the dog, the same is not true for dog jewelry. Young puppies are curious and may well chew on, and possibly swallow jewelry items. That could mean a lot of stressful times and an expensive vet visit.

Now, when you're ready to delve into the world of dog jewelry here are some of the things to consider, and tips on how to use them.

Dog Hair Jewelry

Hair Bow - If you want your dog to be able to wear hair jewelry, you should start with a hair bow. This will get your dog accustomed to wearing something in their hair. Over time you may want to add a hair bow with a gem or piece of jewelry attached, to put a little more weight on their head.

Hair Clip - A hair clip is a little more substantial than just a hair bow. It has a little more weight and often will move around more when your dog moves its head. These can take a little getting used to for many dogs.

Tiara - Tiara wear is only for the advanced hair jewelry pup. There are a couple of things to know about tiaras. First they have more weight than any of the other hair jewelry pieces and your dog will definitely notice these are in their hair. Second, tiaras generally are restricted to long hair dogs, as the tiara has to be put into the hair with a hair comb.

Other Dog Jewelry

Collar - You can start your dog's jewelry wearing by upgrading their collar to one with gems, crystals or other shiny finishes. This piece won't usually cause any problems with pets, as they are accustomed to wearing collars.

Necklace - The natural progression from a collar is to move your dog into a necklace. A plain dog necklace fits much the same as a collar and should not bother your pooch.

Pendant, collar charm, or ID Tag - Once you are ready to add more to the neckline, you can add on a pendant or jeweled ID tag for your dog. Not all dogs like the idea of something dangling off the bottom of their collar or necklace, so keep an eye on them after you put this on to make sure they aren't trying to chew it off.
