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.

Measure your dog’s neck as you want the collar to fit. Order the size that matches your dog’s neck size. Width determines the weight and sturdiness.

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.

    I loved the quality of construction (mostly!) and the leather itself. Unfortunately I also experienced a problem with the clasp. It was lost (and returned) twice but third time was lost forever to the Atlantic Ocean. Also as a Canadian the import charges are very high or i would be ordering a replacement. Still rating it a 4 star for build quality. Bob

    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 dear, it sounds like you have a warranty issue! Contact us at the workshop and we’ll get you taken care of.

    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.

      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.
