Product Review: Bret Michaels Pets Rock Rolled Leather Collar

The Bret Michaels Rolled Leather Collar from the PetSmart Pets Rock collection is a flat buckle collar. This is from a line of rockstar themed products endorsed by an actual rockstar, and many of their products are actually quite snazzy.

As Pets Rock collars go, this one is pretty sweet. It's simpler than the ones encrusted with spikes, studs, and chains. The buckle keeper is emblazoned with Bret Michaels's signature, and the rolled part is narrow.

As rolled leather collars go, this one isn't that great. The function of a rolled leather collar is to avoid corners or edges rubbing against the dog's coat. The rounded section of leather slides along the hairs without pulling them. The Pets Rock rolled leather collar is more folded than it is rolled. The leather is folded in half and stitched down, but it's been scraped so thin on the inside that the entire thing just collapses into a neat square.

Pros: Skinny minimalist design, bears rockstar signature logo, probably made from cow.

Cons: Isn't actually round.

Bottom Line: All the classic rolled leather style with none of the function. Most of PetSmart's Bret Michaels collars rock a little harder, but this one's a decent price for a thin, strong, simple leather design.
