Dog Collar History
Dog collars have been around since Ancient Egypt. Dogs in Ancient Egypt were considered hunters or protectors not pets. The Egyptians used dog collars in all their dog training. The dog collars became quite artistic.
In ancient Greece dog collars were used more to protect the dogs. Farm dogs wore spike studded collars and sheepdogs wore a leather collar studded with nails. These studs protected both dogs from being bitten in the neck by a wolf.
An interesting fact is that sheepdogs needed to be white, so they could be seen at night. While the farm dogs had to be black, so they could be concealed to surprise intruders.
In the Middle Ages, dogs were used as hunters and shepherds. The dog collars used were made from simple leather for boar and hare hunting.
In Europe, during the Renaissance, owners used plain dog collars, but added rings for leashes and name tags.
