BLD’s Quick Release Collar™ made from Brahma Soft-Grip leather alternative
This Bold Lead Designs exclusive is the ONLY quick release, adjustable, leather-alternative dog collar you’ll find anywhere. Created with large dogs in mind, this wide PVC collar is crafted without stitching or rivets for long-lasting quality. The aluminum side release buckle is superior to the cheap plastic buckles you may have seen and is easy to operate, even for those with limited dexterity. Special adjustment buckle is smooth on the inside and won’t irritate your dog. Material and hardware is rather heavy; this collar is best for large dogs.
Add an extra ring: You may add a loose o-ring to your collar if you’d like. The ring will be loose along the length of the collar, perfect for attaching the leash.
**NOTE: Electronic devices will not fit this collar, our quality materials are too thick.**
All Brahma Quick-Release Collars are 1″ wide.
Available for the following neck sizes:
- Medium: 16-20″
- Large: 20-24″
- XL: 24-30″
Measure your dog’s neck as you want it to fit (do not add extra length) or measure the length of your existing collar to the hole that fits.
Our collars are measured to the MIDDLE HOLES to reflect the dog’s actual neck size! We think this is the most accurate way to measure, plus it will give you room to adjust the collar tighter or looser as needed.
Choose your color:
- HUNTER ORANGE (high visibility)
- BRIGHT MINT GREEN
- COBALT BLUE
Quick-Release Brahma Collars come standard with stainless steel/ silver colored hardware.
Brass/gold colored hardware available upon request.
*Quick release buckle hardware has changed as of October 2021.
NOTE: In rare instances brass may tarnish and rub off on light colored / white dogs.

I purchased this collar for my Guide Dog to wear when swimming. I could not be more satisfied with its quality and durability. It is easy to clean; dries quickly; does not hold odor; and is easy to put on and take off.

I purchased the collar and a Brahma lead as well. Both items are heavy and pretty inflexible. The lead was so heavy that I had to return it since it would not have worked well for hiking longer treks.
I kept the collar thinking I’d give it a try since I liked the waterproof aspect of it and the color was very pretty.
Unfortunately, the materials is highly inflexible and even after giving the collar constant wear there remains a “loop” at the end created by adjusting the sizing for fit. This “loop” hasn’t flattened out at all and has gotten caught a few times on brush.
I don’t recommend this product at all and unfortunately since we’ve used the collar I don’t know if it can be returned.
The other thing that potential buyers should be aware of, is that NO shipping costs are covered either for returns or even exchanges so the products potentially end up costing a lot more than they are actually worth and they are already pretty expensive.
The only reason I gave it even one star is so anyone wanting to read reviews can find it.

This is my favorite collar ever! My SD is quite active so she swims in the lake with me, runs around in the mud, going for jogs (well, attempts at jogging 3 feet) in the Oregon rain, etc. Despite all of the really gross conditions it has been in, a quick hose off brings it back to clean and the as needed cleaning with soap and a sponge keep it looking brand new. I got it with the extra ring for the leash and like it a lot since it makes switching the leash from right to left much easier on my dog. The quick release buckle is surprisingly sturdy and holds just as well as a traditional buckle does. I like that releasing it is one handed so when we are home I just lightly push on the sides. Like I said, surprisingly study going from mid-pots hand cramp buckle release to being able to hold back a 75 pound beast who will bulldoze people for water coming out of a hose. The purple is deep and the material is SO soft. I got the matching 8-way leash with it and these are by far our favorite. A picture of my dog in her collar and leash are on the BLD facebook page :)
I do wish there was an option for the thinner material from the leashes to make a collar out of as a lightweight at home collar. This may be me making an excuse to buy another collar, though.
