Leather dog collars

Leather Dog Collars
Leather collars come in various styles:

– Standard flat leather collars with a buckle closure and D-ring to attach tags.
– Rolled oiled leather collars give a little extra comfort for longer-haired dogs and helps prevent matting and tangles. They have a buckle closure and D-ring.
– Leather hunt collar for the working dog. A center safety ring relieves pressure when caught on an obstacle, and is also a handy place to attach the lead. They come with a buckle closure and D-ring
– Leather slip training collar tightens when your dog pulls and loosens when he responds to your correction. The collar is a combination of flat and rolled leather. They come with a center safety ring and slip ring.
– Leather prong training collar used for correction and training.

The flat buckle leather collar is traditional. This type of collar fits around the dog’s neck, just above where the neck meets the shoulder, and will have a metal or plastic buckle on it, somewhat similar to a belt. The buckle makes the collar size adjustable. Leather collars can be adorned with decorations such as rhinestones, studs, spikes, a silver plate that can be engraved, leather and chain, cut out styles, colored sparklers, tapestry, and come in a wide range of colors other than brown or black.

Leather collars might break if pressure is applied for an extended period of time. This means if the dog becomes caught or "hung up" on something, the leather collar is
more likely to break and free the animal than a nylon collar; however, a leather collar is not a "breakaway" collar. Leather collars may also stretch or crack as they age. Cleaning leather collars simply using soap and water will dry out the leather, and shorten its useful life. To prevent this from happening, be sure to apply leather conditioner or oil to the collar or other approved cleaning products designed for leather. Lastly, flat buckle collars are not the best type of collar for all types of dogs. Small and delicate dogs are prone to a condition called collapsing trachea. The trachea (the airway to the lungs) of these animals can actually become flattened or completely collapse as a result of pressure on the throat, such as when pulling on the collar during walks.
