Best Collars For Labrador Retrievers

Well-known as America's most popular dog breed, Labrador Retrievers are simply the best. They're lovable, friendly and loyal enough spunk in them to keep things interesting. They're about as affectionate as they come for families and strangers alike, and though they're easy-going in personality, they're big on enthusiasm, excitement and energy!

That's why when you're looking for the best collars for Labrador Retrievers, you want to be sure that you get an accurate and comfortable fit. They love the water, so waterproof/water-resistant collars are always a plus. They're good for getting into all kinds of fun (and sometimes mischief!) so you also want to look for collars that have easy/quick release buckles!

EzyDog Neo Classic Collar

Perfect for all your Labrador's water adventures, the EzyDog Neo Classic is made with a neoprene material. This material is also used to make wetsuits, and the Neo Classic is waterproof and fast-drying. Great for romping through the woods, the beach or even a dip in the pool, it also has quick-release buckles for easy on and off. The hardware is stainless steel to protect against rust.

PetSafe KeepSafe Breakaway Collar

We love the patented buckle on the KeepSafe Break-Away collar because it's designed for quick release in the case of an emergency or play that gets out of hand. When pressure is applied, it separates and then can be snapped back together. Made of quick-dry nylon, it's made to keep your Lab's safety the most important thing.

WestPaw Jaunts Collar

WestPaw's Jaunts collar is lightweight and waterproof. It has adjustable loops and buckles so you can make sure it fits your Labrador just right for comfort and utility. It also has a zinc quick connect loop which is perfect for Labs as they tend to get uber excited and sometimes pull in their enthusiasm. It also has an ID loop that means tags won't get caught in your Lab's leash as you walk.

Dogline Biothane Waterproof Collar

What Labrador Retriever doesn't love puddle-jumping on their adventures? None we know! That's why the Dogline Biothane Waterproof Dog Collar rocks. It's a strong and durable polyester webbing substrate that's been bonded with a waterproof coating. It's flexible and comfy, though, and it wipes clean and easy every time with a damp cloth. Because the Biothane is non-absorbent, it repels odors as well. And Lab parents love all the fun colors.

Kurgo Waterproof Muck Collar

The Kurgo Muck collar is another excellent collar for your adventurous Labrador. They're 100% waterproof and clean easily in seconds (despite how hard your Lab tries to dirty it!). Kurgo also offers a lifetime warranty for their collars, so it's made to last. And, it's made specifically for your dog to muck around in, with fun patterns and colors to boot.

GoTags Personalized Biothane Collar

This Biothane collar cleans like a dream, and it also has your Labrador's important information laser engraved right in front. The collar is designed with a reflective strip for easy spotting in low-light settings and it's 100% waterproof for all the shenanigans your Lab can throw at it.

RuffWear Hoopie Collar

This collar was built for adventure! It's a strong woven fabric that has an easy-to-use side release buckle for quicker putting on and taking off on the trail or wherever life takes you and your Lab. It also has a separate quick ring for ID tags to help make it easy to add and remove them, as well as a silicone tag silencer so there's less jingling in the middle of the night when your pooch is stretching his long Lab legs!

Personalized Waterproof Collar

This waterproof collar comes in lots of fun patterns, and also has a laser engraved nameplate to make it unique and personalized for your Labrador. It's made of polyurethane-coated nylon that resists water, icky smells, bacteria and more, and it's super easy to clean and add new sizing holes as your Labrador grows.

Black Rhino

The Rhino collar is popular among Lab parents because even though it's lightweight, it's also a heavy-duty collar that gets the job done. It's made of neoprene to be water-resistant and quick-dry, and it has a soft padded liner to make it comfy on your Lab's neck.

MightyPaw Neoprene Padded Collar

The Mighty Paw Neoprene collar was created with dogs like Labradors in mind…adventurous and athletic. The neoprene material is waterproof and repels odors and stains, and it also has reflective stitching sewn in for your dog's protection in low-visibility light situations. It comes with a non-metal dog tag attachment to help the jingling of your Lab's tags, and its padding makes it comfy for wear.
