If you try to get your dog into a cute Christmas sweater every holiday season only for them to run away and refuse to wear it, getting your pup to look the part of Christmas canine can be tricky. Luckily, there are a ton of adorable dog collars and bandanas that come in festive prints and Christmas colors. Since your dog is already used to wearing a collar around their neck every day, these options are easy to slip on just in time for that holiday photo shoot. And just like that, you’ve transformed your pooch into the most joyful dog on the block.
Before you pick out the perfect Christmas accessory, you’ll want to measure around your dog’s neck to make sure you’re ordering the correct size. Also, if this collar is going to replace your dog’s regular collar for the whole month of December, it’s important to select one that you can personalize with your information or one that you can attach an ID tag to, just in case your dog tries to run away to the North Pole.
Whether you’re looking for a red-and-green bandana to wear during playtime or a collar with a bow tie to dress your dog up for your Christmas photo, any of these 17 dog Christmas collars and dog Christmas bandanas will look great on your four-legged friend.
Nothing screams “cozy winter vibes” quite like a Fair Isle print, and this dog collar with a bow will make your dog look like it’s on a vacation in a ski cabin in the woods. Wear your favorite Fair Isle sweater while your pup’s wearing this collar for optimal Christmas cuteness.
