Customer review:

“I’ve purchased three of these. . . I love how the brown darkens with age and all three just get softer with age. They hold up to our dogs rough and tumble behavior whether on walks or just playing around the house. I’m already making plans to buy a fourth when our newest addition is done growing, it’s become a rite of passage in this household. I have gotten a large quantity of compliments on the beauty and quality of these collars and I always recommend these collars. I fully expect these colors to last the life time of our dogs and any future dog will get their own BLD collar!” —Lisa Rose

BLD’s Leather Quick Release Collar™

A Bold Lead Deigns top seller! Our exclusive design is the ONLY quick release, adjustable leather dog collar you’ll find anywhere. The all metal buckle is superior to the typical buckles you’ve seen.

These beautiful leather collars are made from the same quality leathers and hardware as our awesome leads (including solid brass 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. Made with solid brass d-rings for ID tags, or snap on a leash. The metal side release buckle is super easy to operate, even for those with limited dexterity.

Guaranteed great quality and fit. A little leather conditioner after a swim, bath, or jaunt in the rain will ensure your collar will last for many years.

Choose leather color:

Our Golden TAN BRIDLE Leather is 100% American vegetable tanned leather, made with NO dyes or toxic metallic chemicals. Reminiscent of fine English horse tack, this leather is superior in quality to any other leash you’ve seen. Every leash is HAND-OILED to bring out the softness, so your leash arrives supple and feels great in your hands immediately and only improves with age. The color will darken with use and age. Solid brass d-ring and brass plated buckle.

Our lovely BLACK LATIGO is solid black, and superior to ordinary leashes in texture and quality, cut from select from USA hides. It is incredibly durable, yet is very flexible. Feels great in your hands and will simply get better with age. Chrome plated solid brass d-ring and nickel plated buckle.

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: In rare instances brass may tarnish and rub off on light colored / white dogs.

    I bought this collar today at a shop near by. Its looks beautiful and I love the looks. I used it for my dog for the first time and he was playing with some dogs at a park, the collar came off twice. The quick release opens so easily and it just comes off. It was not cheap collar to buy so it is disappointing.

    Oh goodness! It seems you may have a warranty issue. Let us get that buckle replaced for you. Thanks for your honest feedback and for giving us a chance to get it right. We’ve emailed you the warranty info for your reference.

    We just got our Frenchie this collar. It is gorgeous! We can’t wait to use it for our family photos next month. Super high quality leather, responsive sellers and quick shipping. We love the matching leash as well. Our pup looks sooo handsome!

    Collar looks great, seems to be high quality. 1 major problem, it wont stay on. The quick release will open and the collar will fall off. Not sure how its happening because it seems secure when inspecting it, however within 5 minutes of being off-leash in the backyard it will pop open and fall off. A collar that wont stay on is pretty useless.

    I have a 4yo Frenchie and his collar has been won out so badly so I wanted to get something that was sturdy, functional, and looked good. I am glad I purchased this. It is a beautiful, high quality collar! It is very easy to adjust and fits my French bulldog perfectly.
