drawing of a shirt collar wth squared off ends rather than points
figure 1  


dog ear collar. A collar shaped like a dog's ears; usually found on a drizzler jacket,reference 1 a drizzler being a kind of rainwear.


a dog with floppy ears shaped like the collar in figure 1

a dog with long ears standing up like a rabbit's
figure 3  
A comparison of Figures 1 and 2 make clear what the derivation of the term is: the floppy ear flaps of many dogs do have the shape and drape of the collar depicted above. Of course not all dogs have such floppy ears, as you can see in Figure 3, and yes, that really is a dog, not a rabbit.
