They are. Depends on what you're wanting. Quality is sometimes better, in fact.

I would think there are probably differences in quality of both people and dog collars.

GONE! GONE!
From what I've heard, a lot of people use them just fine.

I've got a few that I bought that are meant for dogs, they're usually a little skinnier in terms of how tall they are (most are 1" or less) so usually I find them more comfortable than other collars.
^_^

That said, if they're better/just as good as collars meant for people would depend on what you want to use them for. They're great for just wearing around town or the house since they're not as wide as most of the collars meant for playtime, but you might want something a bit more durable if you're going to be pulling on the d-ring a lot.
Also, with a good portion of the dog collars, the d-ring is next to the buckle so that might annoy people that like to have it in front for leash leading.

As with all things, depends on the quality you purchase and dog collars come in sizes that fit people too.

They're pretty much interchangeable for me. I've bought several dog collars for various people in my life, including a custom one...the quality is definitely comparable to most 'average priced' fetish collars.

Depends on the quality of both the dog and the people collar you compare it to.

i got mine at hobby lobby. it's really pretty and has little silver bones on it. i haven't seen any people collars that are pretty/cool enough to pay so much for them

I think they can be used. Mine is a people collar, but if we found a really cute one or he wanted to buy me one, I would wear it too.

They make really nice quality dog collars, so I don't see why they wouldn't work.

pet collars are about the same as inexpensive people collars, I think. but it's only in people-collars that you'll get expensive leather pieces. (I am not an expert. I have one puppy collar, and I use it as a whip.)

I prefer buying dog collars over people collars. The one 'expensive' people collar I had bought broke on me not long after first use. I still have my dog collars from back in the day, holding up just fine.

Having worked in the dog industry for many years, several of them spent working with high end clients, I can vouch that there are some EXTREMELY well made, high quality, and EXPENSIVE dog collars. In some cases, you might be able to get something better shopping in high end pet stores, though you might find that you don't always save money on them. You just might not get some of the features of BDSM "people collars" such as multiple D rings or certain types of padding or other custom details. Most, though not all, dog collars have the D ring situated next to the buckle which doesn't look as nice on people as it does on dogs since most people wear their collars with the buckle behind the neck and the D ring facing forward. High end pet boutiques carry collars in the $100's ranges. Sometimes higher for rhinestones and other fancy things. Many fashion designers (Coach and Louis Vitton among them) have a line of pet collars and they are priced to match their other products. I've had clients who easily spent $2-300 on their pets' collars. Dog collars made for large, strong, heavy dogs might even stand up to more abuse than "people collars." For fashion, especially blingy, shiny things, you'll probably find a larger selection among pet collars. For comfort, you'd probably really have to shop around, but I've seen many beautiful, buttery soft leather dog collars. For longevity, most dog collars, especially high end, high quality ones, are made to be worn daily during playtime, walks, training, even sleeping, possibly even getting wet, and last for a long time. People collars aren't always made to that standard. I think it's quite possible you could find something just as good, if not better in pet collars, you might save money on it but you might not, you'd have a larger selection and variety of styles, but you might not get every feature so it really depends on your priorities and your specifications.

I'll have to second this. Though I've only ever used dog collars...

I would say yes for some categories, if not better. Dog collars tend to be sturdier and more weather resistant. That said, the feel and or look might not be as good, but that's pretty subjective. You can always go to a petstore and look before buying online.

Thank you.

I was just going to say, with a lot of dog collars, the D Ring is situated right next to the buckle, while in... people collars, the D Ring should be on the opposite side. Our necks aren't built like dogs', and a collar made for people with the D ring on the opposite side of the buckle is safer in the long run, in most cases.

Can't say I'd ever wear one.
