Dog shows have a rich tradition. Since 1935, when Joe Dunn founded the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club, breeders have been showcasing their Staffies with traditional collars. Why? Because of their unique feature - the pretzel or knot. This sets their collars apart from those of other breeds.

Today, you can find a variety of collar types on the market - round or cut leather, all-leather collars, or versions with chains. It all depends on what suits your furry friend best and the occasion you’re preparing them for.




For shows, it's better to go with a thinner collar. Even with the Stafford's sturdy and muscular build, a thinner collar highlights their elegance and, most importantly, their control in the ring.

For outdoor adventures and walks, opt for a thicker collar. Look for collars adorned with decorations - pretzels, knots, or silhouettes of full figures or just the heads of SBTs.

A classic Staffordshire collar with a traditional knot isn't just a fashion accessory or trend. It primarily honors and preserves the history of this wonderful breed. Therefore, it should be a staple in every Staffie's wardrobe.

Best of luck at your next show!
