My classic dog collars are made with high quality, USA made bridle leather and solid brass hardware. Each collar is made with hand tools and takes over twelve steps to complete. The result is a strong, handsome collar that will last for years.
Collars are made to order based on your dog’s specific measurement (see sizing instructions below). Expect collars to ship in 3-5 days.
I can emboss your dog’s name and/or your phone number on the collar- just select that option when you add the collar to your cart and enter the personalization information in the cart notes.*
How the collars are made:
It all starts with a side, which is half a cow, of 10-12oz Wicket and Craig bridle leather
1” straps are cut on a homemade strap cutter
Collars are cut to length the ends are shaped with strap-end punches
Holes are punched for the buckle hardware and at the strap end
The buckle end is skived down to reduce the thickness and make it easier to attach the hardware
The edges are hand burnished with saddle soap and sealed with beeswax
The strap keeper loop is cut and hand sewn
Buckle & D-ring hardware is attached with Chicago screws
Maker’s mark is pressed into the collar
Pet’s Name & Phone number are hand loaded into letter press & pressed into collar (optional)
1”Wickett and Craig veggie tanned bridle leather (10-12oz)
Antique brass roller buckle
Antique brass Chicago screws
Antique brass D-ring
My collars are made to order for your dog’s specific neck size. Measure your dog’s neck where their collar normally sits and select that length when you order. I will make the collar fit comfortably based on the actual neck size you provide so please make sure the measurement is the dog's neck.
*If you are ordering more than one collar, just specify the sizes along with the personalization in the cart notes.
