NEW updated design! In October 2019 we revised the design to make it easier to use (braids are now omitted to avoid tangling in fur, and the limited slip distance is now refined for a better fit.)
How it works: The collar slides “opens” to fit over the dog’s head, then the weight of the leash (or pressure on the leash) will cause the collar loop to “close” to fit the dog’s neck. It’s easy to get on and off.
This collar is sized to fit the dog’s neck snugly in the “closed” position; this ensures the collar will not choke the dog, yet is snug enough to not allow the dog to back out of the collar. The neck size is adjustable with our special Conway buckle. (Initial adjustment may require a helper.)
Select the style you need: The regular separate collar is made with an O-ring to attach any leash. The built-in option is made with a swivel to prevent tangling. This makes an all-in-one leash and collar combo! You may request this collar be added to any of our leash designs including the wheelchair leashes. The collar will add extra length to the leash (EXCEPT for full-custom designs). Photos illustrate the choices.
Optional Hand-Loop is available for people who need extra space for their fingers/hands to grasp the collar to “dress” the dog.
Measure your dog’s neck/collar as you would like the collar to fit when “closed” or snug.
Select Size: (dog’s neck size)
- Small 13-16” (33-41 cm); adds approx. 6-8” to leash length
- Medium 16-20” (41-51 cm); adds approx. 7-9” to leash length (fits most retrievers!)
- Large 20-24” (51-61 cm); adds approx. 8-10” to leash length
Only use with a leash. Not recommended for dogs that are escape artists and/or runners if they slip the collar.
We use only the highest quality hardware—most of our hardware is stainless steel or solid brass for durability and longevity. Stainless steel bolt snaps are standard on all of our wheelchair leashes.
All Fastener-Free Collars are ¾” wide (19.5 mm).
Our leathers are incredibly durable, yet flexible. They feel great in your hands and if well-conditioned and maintained they simply get better and more supple with age. Leather will be assembled using braids in most cases, as braids are the strongest, most reliable method.
Our Golden TAN BRIDLE Leather is 100% American vegetable tanned leather, hand-oiled to bring out the golden tones and softness. The color will darken to a chestnut brown with use and age.
Our lovely BLACK LATIGO is solid black, and superior to ordinary leashes in texture and quality, cut from select USA hides. Our black leather is thick and sturdy for a super strong leash.
Brahma Soft-Grip—a vegan leather alternative:
Brahma Soft-Grip is constructed with webbing on the inside and a durable, non-tacky PVC coating on the outside. Easy to care for: just wipe clean with soap and water. Brahma is always assembled with screw posts for durability. This material is heavier than leather (in a comparable width), and does not soften over time the way leather does. Black is the most popular color for wheelchair leashes, but assorted bright and classic colors are also available. Just ask for available color choices!
Hardware on this product comes standard in the silver color (components are stainless steel or nickel/chrome plated solid brass). Brass (gold color) is available by special request.
