And the amazing thing is that these types of dog collars with spikes sticking out of them probably appeal more to humans as some sort of fashion statement then dog owners. Let’s face it, there are probably more people wearing spiked dog collars then dogs. This trend of people wearing spiked dog collars began during the rise of the punk music movement when young punks began wearing them to shock establishment. Wearing a dog collar fit right in with the image that punk rockers and their fans were trying to project. What began as a punk rocker bad boy image symbol has become more main stream these days with many people, particularly teenagers, wearing them as a fashion accessory Dog Bark Collar with 7 Sensitivity USB Rechargeable Waterproof with Beep B07SJZ31ZJ
This of course doesn’t mean that you can’t buy a spiked dog collar for your dog if that’s the image you are trying to project, but aside from guard dogs or junkyard dogs the appeal of a spiked dog collar on a dog just really isn’t there. If you have teenaged kids on the other hand they may be more than willing to wear a dog accessory most people wouldn’t put on their dog.
Spiked dog collars aren’t the only dog fashions that have found favor among their human masters. Dog tags, worn on a long chain around the neck, became a part of the human fashion world back in the 1990’s. They caught on quicker then the spiked dog collar because they weren’t nearly as obtrusive being worn under clothing. Dog tags were looked on more as jewelry then clothing and aren’t nearly as offensive as a spiked dog collar by the more mainstream of society. Now days with all the metal accouterments found on fashions and piercings those sporting a spiked dog collar or metal dog tags aren’t much noticed anymore. These types of fashions aren’t even considered a “bad boy” accessory anymore with many teens sporting such fashions with hardly a second thought. There are even spiked collars with a more godly feel to them, sporting little metal crosses hanging from them.
