Dog owners resemble their breeds of choice, or so the adage goes. With such symbiosis in play, it makes sense to match a pet’s collar to the person. Maxwell Dog in studio city offers these perfect fits.

Santa Barbara-based GREEN BEAN DOG stitches patterned textiles bearing hearts, anchors, stars, waves, and other warm and fuzzy images into hemp backing. We fell for the Hopisque sunbursts ($22-$25).

Semiprecious stones and other elegant bling embellish the collars by Roddy and Soo Novotny of RN DESIGN. Made by hand in West Hollywood, some might set you back $130 or so (but Rex looks great in gems)
