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 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 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.

NOTES: In some instances, brass may tarnish and rub off on light-colored / white dogs.
Minor scuffing on leather surface–especially near the buckle–is considered normal wear inherent to the materials used.

  1. Adrienne Atwood (verified owner)

    Never will I use another collar. this one is so classy and beautiful. I’m happy with this collar and the quick realese for my shaking hands. Thank you for the best collar…..I needed it.

  2. Shannan Meehan

    This is a great collar and the quick snap feature is great! It’s easy to clean and care for and is holding up great for my German Shepherd. The metal on the snap somehow got scratched but it is still totally functional. A great collar!

  3. Richard Sagarsee (verified owner)

    I have the black medium-sized collar (1″ width). I love it; the buckle allows you to get it to just the right fit, and I had the extra ‘O’ ring attached for me to attach the leash to. With the quick-release, getting the collar off and on is so quick and easy; no fumbling, no messing with getting the extra strap back through a buckle and loosened from the buckle tongue…just a click and it releases. Getting it back on is just as easy. My dog doesn’t like a lot of fumbling around his neck, so this collar is wonderful. I can take it off in literally 2 seconds when I am grooming him or giving him a bath. Richard

    I love this collar. My dog looks very dapper in it and the hardware is very strong. I didn’t have to work hard to keep it clean and looking like new.
    I’m actually about to order another one as my foster pup chewed up my dogs…the price of puppy fun. Didn’t think twice about replacing it!

  5. Dara

    I bought this collar a little over a year ago, and could not be happier with the quality. We needed a quick release collar for our doggy daycare, and I wanted a classic look (not nylon!). Not only does it look great, it has held up through countless days of rough and tumble outdoor play at doggy daycare. I will say that the tan color definitely does darken with time. We just got another puppy and I plan on making a few more purchases here – going to try out the leashes next!

  6. Susan Dietrich (verified owner)

    I have two water dogs who are in the water all the time. They have had their leather collars now for 2 1/2 years. They have never failed me or my dogs. The quick release is a must for me because my two big dogs play with each other all the time which means the chance of getting a jaw hooked in the collar is possible. The water has only enhanced the beauty of the leather. People notice the beauty and strength of the collars and ask where can they get one . I am proud and pleased have my dogs wearing BLD collars.
