Enhanced Durability with Flat Leather Dog Collar Design

This leather dog collar features a traditional design with a dee ring placed in front of the roller buckle for added strength. This design ensures the strap stays securely in place, making it ideal for strong dogs that pull on the lead or need to be tied up. The additional layer of leather provides extra durability when your dog pulls.

Quality Craftsmanship

Investing in a Kinfolk Leather custom dog collar is about more than style—it's about embracing quality craftsmanship and thoughtful design that prioritises your dog's comfort and safety. Our collars feature premium Italian vegetable-tanned leather, known for its strength and beauty. As it ages, it softens and develops a unique, natural patina, while remaining extremely strong to withstand harsh and demanding conditions. It has been dyed all the way through with non-toxic water dyes.

Perfect Fit

Our meticulous handcrafting process ensures every edge is rounded, smoothed, and sealed for ultimate comfort. The precisely positioned buckle holes guarantee a perfect fit, and the adjustable buckle makes it easy to put on and take off your dog.

Silent Nameplate Option

Opt for our optional hand-stamped nameplate, a 'silent' alternative to traditional jingly dog tags. Securely riveted to the leather, this nameplate adds a touch of elegance and durability. Unlike laser engraving, hand-stamping creates a deeper, more distinctive impression, ensuring your pet's identification stands out.

Lasting Investment

Choosing a Kinfolk Leather custom dog collar means investing in a piece that showcases your dog's unique personality with timeless style and lasting quality. Our collars are crafted to endure and look great for years. When you’re ready for a fresh look, we can reuse the same high-quality hardware to create a new strap, ensuring your dog’s collar is as sustainable as it is stylish.

-------------------------------

Due to high demand and our commitment to quality, please allow up to 2 weeks for your custom creation to be carefully crafted.

Our 'Nude' coloured leather is currently out of stock until July 2024. You can still place your order, and we will create and dispatch it as soon as the new leather hide arrives.

LEATHER

The vegetable-tanned leather has been selected for its strength and beauty. As it ages, it will soften and develop a unique, natural patina, while remaining extremely strong to withstand harsh and demanding conditions. It has been dyed all the way through with non-toxic water dyes.

HARDWARE

We use premium British saddlery hardware, cast from solid brass and rust-proof. Our hardware is selected for maximum strength, ensuring our products remain rust-free for life. All hardware is kept securely in place with strong solid brass rivets.

NAMEPLATE

An optional solid brass or stainless steel nameplate can be securely attached to the collar with matching solid brass rivets. Your emergency contact details will be clearly visible, ensuring your dog can be quickly identified if they wander off.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

Each dog collar is meticulously handmade, and our nameplates are hand-stamped. Minor tooling marks or inconsistencies in the stamping enhance the unique charm and human element of your custom dog collar.

The standard placement of the nameplate is directly opposite the buckle hardware, visible on the top of your dog's neck. However, if you would like a different placement just let us know - we can attach it wherever you like.

Nameplate Dimensions:
Small (for 1/2" wide collars) - 50 x 9.5mm - up to 2 lines of information in 2.5mm text

Is this suitable for your pet?

If your dog has a history of being extremely tough on collars, such as, excessive pulling behaviour, we recommend using a specialty collar when attached to a leash or tie-out and keeping this leather dog collar for 'good'. While our collars are extremely sturdy, and will withstand forceful tugging, there are determined dogs out there for which any collar is no match!

Remember: the wider the leather, the stronger the collar. Please see our Sizing Guide for recommended collar widths.

Collar Size & Measurement

As a general guide we recommend that if your dog’s neck circumference is:

  • less than 22cm (8.5") or puppy under 3 months old, choose a soft leather puppy collar
  • 22 - 28cm (8.5 - 11”), choose 1/2” collar
  • 28 - 34cm (10 - 13”), choose 3/4” collar
  • 32 - 40cm (12.5 - 16”), choose 1” collar
  • 38 - 50cm (15 - 20”), choose 1 1/4” collar
  • 46cm (18") and larger, choose 1 1/2” collar

Wider collars are stronger so please keep this in mind when you are selecting the collar width (basically, don’t walk a medium sized dog on a 1/2” collar, choose at least 3/4” and preferably 1” +). For medium sized breeds and larger, we highly recommend choosing our D-End Dog Collar which gives another layer of leather to pull against when attaching a lead to the dee ring.

How to Measure For A Dog Collar

We strongly suggest providing an accurate measurement when placing your order. If you follow the instructions below, this will allow us to make a collar for your dog that will fit him/her well.

1. Using a soft tape measure, record the circumference of the neck at the point where a collar would naturally lie.

2. Pull the tape so that it is snug but not tight. Record the measurement.

3. Enter this measurement in the personalisation text box when prompted. This measurement will be the middle hole of the collar, we will add at least another two holes either side.

Puppies - If your dog is a puppy, please let us know and we will make an allowance for growth when sizing the holes for the collar. Please feel free to give us a range (up to 12cm, i.e. 24-36cm) so that we can make sure there are enough holes to suit your dog's growth. We can be very flexible with the number of holes provided in the collar.

How to Measure For A Cat Collar

1. Using a soft tape measure, record the circumference of the neck at the point where a collar would naturally lie.

2. Pull the tape so that it is snug but not tight. Record the measurement.

3. Enter this measurement in the personalisation text box when prompted.
