A Bold Lead Designs top seller! Our exclusive design is adjustable and features an all-metal buckle that is superior to the typical plastic kind.
These beautiful leather collars are made from the same quality leathers and hardware as our awesome leads (including solid brass or stainless steel d-rings: none of the cheap stuff that rusts or breaks). The edges of the leather are beveled for a smooth edge for comfort and to protect your dog’s coat. Special adjustment buckle is smooth on the inside and won’t irritate your dog. There are no rivets or stitching to wear out or come undone. The metal side release buckle is easy to operate, even for those with limited dexterity.
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.**

Leather & Hardware Color
Our leather comes in two colors: tan and black.
Our standard leather/hardware color combinations are:
- Black leather with stainless steel/silver colored hardware
- Tan leather with brass/gold colored hardware
*If you would like a different leather/hardware color combination, select the option “Make with OTHER Color Hardware”.
*Note: brass hardware can stain white/light coated dogs. Sometimes the oil in dogs’ coats can create tarnish, a harmless chemical reaction.
About our leather:
Our Golden TAN BRIDLE leather is 100% American vegetable-tanned leather, made with NO dyes or toxic metallic chemicals. Every item crafted from this high quality leather is HAND-OILED to bring out the softness, so your new gear arrives supple and only improves with age. The color will darken over time and with use.
Our lovely BLACK LATIGO leather is solid black and cut from select USA hides. Superior in quality and texture, it is incredibly durable yet very flexible. This leather feels great from the start and will simply get better with age.
Leather care is easy! Don’t worry too much, and don’t be afraid to use your items — we promise leather is incredibly resilient, and regular weather won’t hurt it. If you think your item looks dirty, dry, or just need a little extra love, pouring a little leather conditioner on a cloth, and rubbing it in like lotion will usually do the trick. Baths and a jaunt in the river are just fine, but you might want to offer a little conditioner to your products afterwards. Saltwater can be harsh, so after a visit to the ocean, a good rinse in fresh water and proper conditioning will help preserve and protect your treasured leash or collar. See our Leather Care page for more specific information.

Style and functionality. The the best leather collar on the market. I just love that the collar can be fully disassembled for cleaning and repairs if needed.
