Leather Puppy Collar / Tiny Dog Collar with hand-stamped nameplate
A puppy collar made from beautifully soft buffalo calf leather. Ideal as your puppy's first collar as well as an adult collar for tiny/small dog breeds (any dog with a neck circumference less than 8").
Custom made to your dog's unique measurements, with 5 holes at 1/2" (12mm) apart there is plenty of room for a growing pup.
The 100% vegetable tanned leather is 1.2 - 1.4mm thick, which is soft to wear yet sturdy enough for puppy lead training. Over time the leather will naturally darken and patina with the oils in your dog's coat.

Available with or without hand-stamped brass or marine-grade stainless steel nameplate.

DOG - HOW TO MEASURE YOUR DOG'S NECK
Using a soft tape measure, record the circumference of the neck at the point where a collar would naturally lie. Pull the tape so that it is snug but not tight. Enter this measurement in the personalisation text box when prompted. This measurement will be the middle hole of the collar, we will add another two holes either side at 3/4" intervals. 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. 38-50cm) 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.
This is personal preference, but as a guide choose 1/2" for tiny dogs, 3/4" for small dogs, 1" for medium dogs and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" for large dogs.

Leather is a natural material and it can display natural marking and colour variations. Over time, the leather will soften with the oils from your dog's coat, developing a natural patina. With a bit of love and care, leather ages gracefully! Give it the occasional clean and recondition with leather dressing, and it will reward you with many years of service. Avoid getting it saturated with water as this can cause the leather to become brittle. For dogs that love to swim, we recommend keeping a secondary, nylon collar for water-based outings. If your leather dog collar does get wet, allow it to dry naturally and then recondition with a good quality leather dressing.
We recommend using our leather balm regularly.
Brass will naturally dull and tarnish over time. You can leave it to develop a beautiful, natural patina or you can bring yours back to a beautiful sheen by polishing with brass cleaner.
