Best Female Dog

While you might be surprised, it is not a matter of surprise to me that the second best spiked collar on this list is also made by the same company that made the first one: Berry Pet

Beirui is one of the most famous and stylish spiked dog collars, and this product in the line of Beirui dog collars from Berry Pet, is special because of all the jewelry on it.

It has a delicate touch to it and an aesthetic appeal that is always appreciated – that too at no expense to durability.

Features

  • Pink Panther Pattern Print
  • Studded Skull Embedded in the Front
  • Thick and Durable PU Leather
  • Strong Grip with a very Soft Touch
  • High Quality Alloy D-ring for Leash
  • Bullet Spike Style
  • Size and Adjustability
  • S – 15” – 18”
  • M – 17” – 20”
  • L – 19” – 22”
  • XL – 21” – 24”
  • 8 Ounces Weight

Best Amazon’s Choice

A big and curved spiked dog collar that almost looks like a studded bandana …

If you appreciate something like this, I must tell you that this BTDCFY thick and soft faux leather dog collar is made exactly for your best buddy.

In terms of popularity, it is number 3 on Amazon with 185+ happy customers…

Speaking of which, it has got an Amazon’s Choice tag … hence listed as ‘Best Amazon’s Choice’ spiked collar

Features

  • Strong and Durable Faux Leather
  • Soft but Sturdy
  • Bullet Spike Style
  • 2” Wide Double Layer PU
  • 5 Adjustment Holes
  • One Heavy Duty D Ring for the Leash
  • Nickel-plated Hardware
  • Size and Adjustability
  • XS – 15” – 18”
  • S – 17” – 20”
  • M – 19” – 22”
  • L – 21” – 24”
  • 8 Ounces Weight

Best Adjustable

A dog or cat’s collar, spiked or not, is just like a belt. It is basically a belt.

You may think of it as something similar to your waist belt.

Adjustability is the most important feature of a belt …

From different sizes to number of holes, you cannot adjust it right unless you have many different sizes and many holes available.

This is why we call this spiked dog collar the best adjustable one. However, let us not assume that adjustability is all about it.

Features

  • Bullet Spike Design
  • Nickel Plated Hardware
  • Made in USA
  • Faux Leather
  • Sturdy and Soft
  • 5 Holes for Adjustability
  • Size (height x width)
  • XXS – 0.98” x 9.8”
  • XS – 0.98” – 11.8”
  • S – 0.98” – 14.5”
  • M – 0.98” – 16.5”
  • L – 0.98” – 20”
  • 5 Ounces Weight

Best Classic

Do you love Tom & Jerry? Although those cartoons were mainly about a cat and a rat, there was another pet: a dog.

That dog wore the same spike collar that AOLOVE guys replicated. There are many colors available and you can buy the exact same red colored spike collar that that Tom & Jerry bulldog wore.

And because this collar looks exactly like that one, I listed it as ‘Best Classic’ collar

Features

  • Classic Look
  • Single Row of Bullet Spikes
  • 5 Adjustment Holes
  • Available in Many Colors
  • Alloy Hardware
  • Genuine Cow Leather
  • Nickel Plating on Hardware
  • Strong & Durable
  • Soft Touch
  • The Most Lightweight Collar
  • Size & Adjustability
  • S – Height 0.6” – Length 11.8” – Adjustability 7.8” x 10.2”
  • M – Height 0.6” – Length 14.5” – Adjustability 10.5” – 13”
  • L – Height 0.8” – Length 16.5” – Adjustability 11.8” – 15.3”
  • XL – Height 1” – Length 20” – Adjustability 14.2” – 18.1”
  • 2 Ounces Weight

Best Studded

Spiked dog collars are also named as studded dog collars. Why?

Because apart from nickel-plated alloy spikes, there are all sorts of jewelry and studs placed on them for decoration.

This one has beautiful crystal embedded symmetrically above and below the row of bullet spikes.

It is definitely a beautiful dog collar and in terms of its studded beauty, it seems to be beating Beirui 3 rows collar and others like BTDCFY studded spiked collar.

Features

  • Strong & Durable
  • One Row of Bullet Spikes
  • 4 Rows of Shining Rhinestone
  • Double Layer of PU Leather
  • Sturdy & Strong
  • Soft on Inside
  • 2 Lines of Neat and Even Stitching
  • Heavy Duty Zing Alloy and Hardware
  • D-ring for Leash
  • 5 Holes for Adjustment
  • Size & Adjustability
  • M – 1.5” x 17” – 12.5” – 15”
  • L – 1.5” x 20.5” – 16” – 19”
  • XL – 1.5 x 22.5 – 18” – 21”
  • 8 Ounces Weight

Best Lightweight

Again: This dog collar is not the best lightweight one

As a matter of fact, AOLOVE collar with only 0.2 ounces weight is the one.

But since that was listed as the best classic collar and this one is the second lightest collar with only 1.6 ounces weight, it gets the title.

And this one has more alloy on it than the AOLOVE one, but still manages to remain less than 2 ounces weight.

Features

  • Two Rows of Studs
  • One Row of Bullet Spikes
  • Strong and Durable
  • Soft on Inside
  • Double Layer of PU Leather
  • 5 Adjustment Holes
  • Nickel-plated Alloy Hardware
  • D-ring for Leash
  • Size & Adjustability
  • XXS – 1” x 10” – 6.3” – 8.2”
  • XS – 1” x 11.8” – 8.2” – 10.6”
  • S – 1” x 14.5” – 10.6” – 13”
  • M – 1” x 16.5” – 12.2” – 14.5”
  • L – 1.18” x 20.8” – 16.14” – 18.7”
  • 6 Ounces Weight

Best Leather

Apart from DiDog spiked dog leather collar, only the AOLOVE collar is made of real leather.

However, what makes Didog’s leather collar the best leather collar and better than the AOLOVE collar is not it being a real leather one.

It is because the soft real leather of this collar has a double layer; we all know that rough side of real leather always digs into the skin and causes pain and bruises.

This company’s attention to details is simply too good; not only they made a real leather collar, but the soft leather padding on the inside saves your dog from bruises and pain.

Features

  • Best Leather Collar
  • Soft Leather Padding on Inside
  • One Row of Bullet Spikes
  • Two Rows of Studs
  • 5 Holes
  • Size & Adjustability
  • S – 10” x 13” – 9” – 13”
  • M – 13” x 15” – 12” – 15”
  • L – 15” x 18” – 14” – 18”
  • 2 Ounces Weight

Best Male Dog

If are not hard of memory, you might recall that in the beginning of this review, we listed Beirui 3 row collar as a “Best Female Dog” collar

Well:

There had to be a male version and this is exactly what this dog collar is.

And I consider this Best Male Dog collar because of the big number of rivets and studs that one finds on this collar – not to mention how big it is.

And by big, I mean in terms of height, because only a dog with long neck will have a collar as high as this one.

Height by the way, is 2” and more than most of the collars on this list.

Now let’s have a look at other features

Features

  • Big and Strong Collar
  • Three Rows of Bullet Spikes
  • Two Rows of Studs
  • Heavy Duty Alloy Hardware with Nickel Coating
  • D-ring for leash
  • 5 Adjustment Holes
  • Fit for Medium and Large Dogs
  • High Quality PU Leather
  • Size & Adjustability
  • XS – 2” x 20” – 15” – 18”
  • S – 2” x 22” – 17” – 20”
  • M – 2” x 24” – 19” – 22”
  • L – 2” x 26” – 21” – 24”
  • 6 Ounces Weight

Best Budget

Yes: As a careful buyer I knew you were expecting to see some fancy spiked collar with all the bells and whistles at a price that’d be only a fraction of what others can be purchased at.

And this is that one spiked dog collar.

Since Amazon sellers keep changing the prices, I cannot mention the exact price here (because it will change in a few months or years), but while I write, this product is available for less than a dollar.

That’s mad, but true.

Features

  • High Quality PU Leather
  • Two Rows of Studs
  • One Row of Bullet Spikes
  • Double Layer for Strength and Durability
  • Soft on Inside
  • D-ring for Leash
  • Size (height x width)
  • XXS – 0.98” x 9.8”
  • XS – 0.98” x 11.8”
  • S – 0.98” x 14.5”
  • L – 0.98” x 20.07”
  • 5 Ounces Weight

Why Do You Need A Spiked Collar for Your Dog?

Before reading all this detail or after reading it, a lot of readers will feel the dire need of asking as to why they need a spiked dog collar at all.

Why their dog cannot do with a normal collar?

Well, before I answer the question, we need to know where the spiked dog collars originate from.

They originate from countries where shepherds led huge herds; they’re also called wolf collars.

And this brings us closer to why people used them.

Since wolves were always interested in sheep and dogs used to keep them at the bay, it was very often that a wolf or some other predator killed the dog.

The metal or spikes on dog collar protected the dogs’ necks from the jaws of such predators.

Also, the same spikes injured those predators and rendered them dysfunctional for many days to come.

Why do we need them in the modern age?

While in 21st century, dogs are doing much more than protecting our sheep, they are still vulnerable to bigger animals and such collars do not only look trendy, but protect them from predators that creep into human settlements
