Dress your pooch in style! This handsome collar is made from superior quality American bridle leather, finished with solid brass hardware. This collar is 5/8" wide and is good for small to medium dogs. I also make collars in 3/4" for bigger dogs, 1" for REAL BIG dogs, and 1/2" for micro pups.
If your dog is an everyday swimmer, I would recommend not wearing this in the water. Having a second nylon collar as a "swimming collar" is a good idea. My dog swims in this leather one only occasionally, and I treat it with leather balm the day after to prevent the leather from deteriorating.
I recommend occasionally treating this leather product with a good leather oil or balm. It makes it look great and it prevents cracking and deterioration. I now offer my own One Star Leather Balm and it happens to be the best product I've ever used on my leathers:
This tan color leather will darken significantly over time with exposure to the sun and elements. The last photo shows my dog's collar after a number of months of wear. It started as the tan color and is now a rich brown.
I also make matching dog leashes.
Measure the circumference of your dog's current collar - from the hole you use all the way to the tip of the buckle. Message me if you have questions as I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MISTAKES IN MEASUREMENTS! THE MEASUREMENT YOU SELECT IS WHAT YOU WILL GET.

SHIPPING METHODS - USPS only
Default shipping: First Class Domestic and First Class International
This usually means a couple days or less to the west coast, 4-7 days to the east coast, and 5-14+ days to the rest of the world.
FYI: Tracking is not always updated reliably with First Class Mail. Also, tracking is NOT UPDATED reliably, if at all for First Class International mail once it leaves the USA. Don't hate me, I'm just the messenger.
I do not ship via UPS or FedEx. Sorry/not sorry.

Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
I accept returns of stock items that are unused and in re-sellable condition. I do NOT accept returns of monogrammed items or belts as they are custom sized (unless I screwed up). I stand behind my products and want you to be happy with your purchase. If you have a problem, get in touch and we'll make it right.
I am happy to make many of my products in your choice of custom color, leather and thread. In general I do not take custom design work, but you can always ask. Custom order turnaround can be anywhere from few days up to a few weeks. Get in touch if you'd like to arrange a custom request.
