The AOLOVE Mushroom Spiked Dog Collar is one of the productions of a pet company simply referred to as AOLOVE. AOLOVE produces all sorts of stuff for both dogs and cats alike.
It employs the use of a variety of materials including nylon, leather, rhinestones and even alloy. All in a bid to create stuffs that cats and dogs can wear and be comfortable in.
The collar we are reviewing is a spiked collar and the basic idea of a spiked collar is to frighten off aggressive dogs.
You know, with all those things poking out of the collar, those aggressors will understand that the wearer is not a match of theirs. The spikes could also be decorative, depending on what you’re looking for.
Now, let’s find out who can wear this particular collar.

Who Can Wear The AOLOVE Mushroom Spiked Dog Collar?
The AOLOVE Mushroom Spiked Dog Collar comes in a variety of sizes. The smallest adjusts between 6.3 and 8.2 inches while the largest adjusts between 14.2 and 18.1 inches.
Features Of The AOLOVE Mushroom Spiked Dog Collar
It is made out of PU leather which makes for a strong and sturdy collar; one that is able to remain the way it is despite pulling. However, we are not sure that this is the collar that you want to use for a tie out. The collar is not that strong.
Now, if you are familiar with leather products, you would know that they are wont to expand with use. However, the expansion of this one will not damage it in anyway, it will just give your dog more room.
It is not washable whether by machine or by hand seeing as it is made of leather. So what you want to do is get leather cleaner. You’ll need just a little bit when you want to clean the collar.
This dog collar comes in a variety of colors. And while the collar can’t be washed, your dog can wear this collar in the rain. It will not get bad and the color will not bleed.
Despite the fact that it won’t bleed, the color will scratch off. And this has nothing to do with getting wet. Frequent use is enough to get the color cracking.
The AOLOVE Mushroom Spiked Dog Collar is dotted with three rows of studs. However, it is just the middle row that has spiked studs. The other rows are made up of flat studs. All of them come together to make this collar really eye catching.
All the studs are made of alloy and are secured to the collar in such a way that they don’t come off very easily. They are secured on the inside of the collar. This might cause a bit of discomfort to your dog especially if he has really sensitive skin.
The spiked studs are pointy but blunt. They might scratch a bit here and there but we don’t think they should draw blood from anybody.
3. Clasp And Leash Ring
This collar uses a metal buckle for a clasp. The buckle is pretty small and might be an issue for dog parents who have large fingers. It is nickel plated so that it lasts long and doesn’t succumb to rust and tarnish.
The buckle is also the adjustment mechanism on this collar. There are five adjustment holes on the strap but there is only one strap loop. That strap loop is also nickel plated.
The leash ring is made of heavy duty stuff and coated with nickel.
Is The AOLOVE Mushroom Spiked Dog Collar User Friendly?
This collar doesn’t require the handler to have any special skills or even special knowledge. It is a basic collar and the handling of it is pretty basic too.
Pros Of The AOLOVE Mushroom Spiked Dog Collar
It is made of leather. And the leather is pretty strong, sturdy and durable. The metal ware, on the other hand, are made of heavy duty material and coated with nickel so that they are rust and tarnish resistant.
2. Easy To Clean
You don’t have to do much to get this collar clean. All you really need to do is get the leather cleaner, like we asked you to, and the rest will come to you.
3. The Studs
We like that this collar has a combination of pointy and fat studs. This way the collar can be beautiful and eye catching while still keeping off aggressive dogs.
The studs are made of alloy and are secured on the inside of the collar. This allows the studs stay on the collar longer than they usually would. The studs will eventually come off, like all studs are wont to, but at least these ones will stay on for longer.
We also like that the spikes are not sharp so that your dog does not accidentally cut himself on the spikes.
Cons Of The AOLOVE Mushroom Spiked Dog Collar
With frequent use, the color on this collar will start to crack. Bear this in mind so that you won’t be surprised when it starts to happen.
Also, because of all the studs going on, this collar might be a bit heavy and not stay snug against the wearer’s neck.
Alternative options To The AOLOVE Mushroom Spiked Dog Collar
Sharp Spiked Option
Beirui Sharp Spike Dog Collar
If for any reason you are in the market for a collar with sharp spikes, the Beirui Sharp Spike Dog Collar could be a good option. The spikes will cause harm to any animal that comes in contact with the neck of the wearer.
However, the spikes have the tendency to fall off too easily. And when they fall off they become a hazard to all and sundry. This review will be very useful to you if you are considering getting this collar.
Option With Bandanna
Do you want something that will look even more ruthless? Try the Didog Bandanna Style Spiked Dog Collar. It is made of leather and is spiked like our featured product. However, there is a bandanna directly under the collar that is also made of leather and is spiked.
Any dog wearing the Didog Bandanna Style Spiked Dog Collar will definitely look like a dog that shouldn’t be messed with. Know, though, that this collar is pricier than our featured product.
The Beirui Rhinestones Dog Collar doesn’t have any spikes at all. It only has five rows of shiny rhinestones. So it is basically meant to be an accessory.
The Beirui Rhinestones Dog Collar is pretty wide and so can only be worn by long necked dogs. Plus, because this collar’s smallest size only adjusts as small as 13 inches, this collar isn’t exactly for small dogs. Go check out this review for even more information.
