These elegant strong breed of dogs are originally from Spain; hence, why they are also often referred to by their more common dog breed name of Spanish Bulldog. The Alano Espanol have quite a austere presence to them because of there size, speed and strong chests. They definitely are very fit dogs with good muscle strength and athletic build for fast running.
The Alano Espanol have a beautiful short thick coat and a litter can sport a variety of colours including brindle, fawn, yellow and even world gray. The eyes and face are definitely bulldog similar but the stout seems to be more prominent.
Like most bull dogs the Alanos dog breed were bred for hunting and tracking down slaves. Because of the Spanish location they were also used during bullfights. During the 1960s when bullfighting became illegal the demand for Alanos Espanol dog breed died out giving concern that they may have become instinct.
Given the long history of the Alanos Espanol as a warrior dog anyone considering having one as a pet needs to assess carefully their ability to run the dog everyday. The amount of energy this dog breed can expend is quite incredible, and not harnessed nor released in a healthy way creates quite a frustrated big doggie.
If you do want a loyal strong friend than the Alano Espanol is the dog breed for you. Ofcourse when the dog is fully grown it will require a large dog collar. Some of the smaller Alano Espanol dogs will fit a medium dog collar and it’s always good to measure the dog collar size required first.
The Kookiest Dog Collars Ever Made!
So there are 100s of dog breeds and 100s of dog personalities and 1000s of dog collars made to suit some of those kooky dog personalities out there. At the dog park recently I was amazed to see a dog collar that was – well, not a dog collar at all! It was a ripped up t-shirt wrapped and looped to act as a make shift dog collar! It definitely looked comfortable. The t-shirt dog collar obviously wasn’t the permanent dog collar of choice as the dog had lost his permanent dog collar in the deep creek somewhere.
Seeing this funny scenario did get me to thinking about what is the weirdest dog collar ever made?
How about a floaty as a dog collar? A nice idea “use floaty dog collar in case of flood!” Might work well in a sudden tsunami or even a nightclub but maybe not on a day to day basis.
So in my hunt for the strangest dog collar ever made I came across a Dog Collar Museum in Britain! I’m not kidding an actual museum in Leeds dedicated to dog collars!!!
If they weren’t so common I’d actually put the spikey dog collars in the weird category. They look great on some dogs and definitely match their owners personality but I can’t just imagine a dog waking up in the morning and saying “toughen me up with dog collar that makes me look like Billy Idol.”
Maybe these ones aren’t weird looking but the fact that million dollar dog collars are now being made and more frequently bought definitely fits the looniest dog collar list.
Have you ever made a make shift dog collar, or can claim the weirdest dog collar ever worn?

Stand Out From the Crowd with your dog
I often see a dog with a nylon rope for a dog lead – the sort of rope people use for a trailer tie down. It has numerous knots in it and I’m sure it cuts into the dogs throat when it goes for a walk because the dog likes to pull heavily on the lead.
Another dog I see has a big studded dog collar and I wonder how comfortable it would be for the dog. Surely the long studs would stick into it while it scratched itself or just be uncomfortable to properly rest it’s head on the ground because the studs are so long it would hold the neck up and out of position.
I see tatty, ripped, boring, falling apart dog leads and dog collars on dogs everywhere. My favourite off-beat dog collar was a t-shirt that needed to be used when the half chewed lead finely snapped while they were on an adventurous walk.
Little do they know they are my inspiration to change the boring dog collar culture!
I love Leroy and Madison’s dog collars being a talking point at the dog park. I mix up my dog collars and people have asked me how many I have. Being the Creative Designer for Leroy Madison I could basically have a different dog collar for every day of the week for both Leroy and Madison.
I enjoy seeing peoples reaction to the dog collars. Some admire from afar and others have to get in for a closer look, almost as though they can’t believe that a dog collar could be so beautiful.
I am proud to say Leroy Madison has started a quiet revolution in the dog park. I’m seeing more and more of our designs on dogs. I often walk into a conversation at the dog park about the lovely dog collars the dog owners have. I smile quietly to myself and know the boring dog collar culture is finally starting to change. Bring it on I say! A world of beuatifully designed high quality pet products that nurture our pets and match our lifestyle choices.
