The Banff Alpine Dog Collar is your everyday collar inspired by the Rocky Mountains. These collars are durable and versatile with an aluminum D-ring, comfortable webbing, easy to use buckle and a separate ID tag attachment that doesn't rattle.
The collar features Rundle Mountain, moose, The Canadian Pacific Railway and Banff Springs Hotel. The scene is set with a majestic sunset in the Bow Valley.
Banff National Park is one of the most iconic national parks in the world, established in 1885, it was Canada's first national park and the world's third national park.
It was in 1888 that W. C. Van Horne, general manager of Canadian Pacific Railway, christened the Banff Springs Hotel “the finest hotel on the North American continent.” Frustrated at not being able to draw visitors to the bold, stunning beauty of the Canadian Rockies, Van Horne announced: “If we can’t export the scenery, we’ll import the tourists.”
The artist who designed the Banff design is Nova DeFehr, she moved to Vernon, BC after graduating with her Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design for Marketing in 2008 and has worked for amazing brands across Canada specializing in logo and brand development.
In fact, she is a big part of Rocky Mountain Dog's brand, designing our logo and our first four leash design.
Rocky Mountain Dog will always be inspired by the Rocky Mountains in every product and design developed and sold because we are inspired by mountains and the moments created when we're outdoors with our best friend.
