Our Leather Whippet Collars are popular with owners of long necked hounds and come in a range of joyful colours! No need for a boring collar anymore!
Choosing just got a bit easier as I have now put the colour on the images - hopefully no more confusion! Please be aware that the colours are as true as the light will allow and may differ slightly to the real thing, and from batch to batch.
LATEST ADDITIONS - Biscuit and Sherbet - both delicious pastels.
As owners of whippets we know that one of the most important purchases you make is a soft leather collar that will not rub your dogs delicate neck, and won't slip over the head easily. Our collars are ideal and designed and made exclusively for us by an artisan leather worker in Dartmoor, Devon, who has been making our collars for over 10 years.
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 on the market at the time, either too hard or only available in boring black or tan, we approached a Devon shoe maker to make some soft leather whippet collars just for us, in a variety of vibrant colours. That was 10 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.
Working closely with our artisan maker we are able to offer you a selection of wonderful soft suede lined padded whippet collars that are ideal for your dogs long soft neck.
Over the years we have added more colours and now there are 10 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.
CARING FOR YOUR COLLAR:
WE STRONGLY recommend that you give the collar a treatment of leather wax and or a spray with leather protector before your dog wears it. Something that should be done regularly to keep the leather nourished, protected and looking good for many walks to come. 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, re-treat it and it will be ready for the next walk.
If you want to match a Rope Lead to a collar, we have a few selected colours take a look at our Soft Rope Leads with Coloured Whipping
Please NOTE: The maker of our Rope Leads is having trouble getting the rope in the current market, but we are trying to sort out an alternative.
Our Leather Collars for Hounds are available in two sizes:
Small Whippet 10" - 13" and 1.5" at widest
Whippet 11.5" - 13.5" and 1.5" at widest
