As owners of whippets, we know how important it is to have a proper collar for their lovely long necks. Feeling disappointed at the choices that were on the market, either too hard, available in boring black or tan, we approached a Devon shoe maker to make some soft leather collars just for us, in a variety of vibrant colours. That was 7 years ago and that same shoe maker still makes all of our collars in her garden studio on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park.
Because we work closely with our artisan maker we are able to offer you a selection of wonderful soft suede lined padded collars that are ideal for your dogs long soft neck.
Over the years we have added more colours and now there are 12 available – your biggest problem will be which one to choose!
Our collars are made from the softest nubuck leather, which has an antique look to it, and will take on a lovely patina as your dog wears it, and it will also get softer with age and wear. All have British Brass buckles and D rings.
These collars appreciate a coating of saddle soap, or leather feed from time to time. If you dog is a roller in smelly stuff – don’t fret they are more robust than they look – simply wash them with soap – Rose with Argan Oil is great – and dry it off before the next walk.
If you want to match a Rope Lead to a collar, it is best to choose the red, blue or green.
Our Leather Collars for Hounds are available in three sizes:
Small Whippet 10″ – 13″ and 1.5″ at widest
Whippet 11.5″ – 13.5″ and 1.5″ at widest
Lurcher 13.5″ – 17″ and 1.5″ at widest (this will also fit a greyhound.)
