the best leather

We have selected top quality full grain leather for its feel and strength. Our leather is soft and pliable, yet far more durable than the average pet products. We use USA cowhides because they’re the best. Your leash, collar or harness will arrive feeling great in your hands, which will only soften more with use and age.

Quality Hardware

To assure durability, we use solid brass and stainless steel hardware. The standard solid brass bolt snaps used on our products are proven to be easy to use and durable (brass is chrome plated for silver color). A variety of other fastener styles are available to meet individual preferences. We avoid fasteners made from inexpensive die cast and malleable metals used by most manufactures. You will never find cheap hardware that would rust or break in our workshop.

True Craftmanship

First, we start with the best leather, then cut and bevel the edges of each strap. A strap is hand selected and individually cut to make each lead, one at a time. We use hand tools and special punching and braiding techniques to ensure a sturdy leash. There is no stitching to come un-done & no cheap hardware that would rust or break. Our technique allows quality control every step of the way, and for repairs if necessary. We  guarantee our workmanship (or “work-womanship” as the case may be).
