Rolled Leather Collars

I just re-visited the July Photo Challenge thread and saw that Marj had asked that someone take the collar topic to a new thread.

Below is the link to the rolled leather collar we use for Pepper. It's a very thin collar (1/4" thick) but very strong. The buckle part is a bit wider without being too big.

We've used the collar for over two months now and it hasn't done any damage to Pepper's coat. He wears it almost all day every day, and I love it so far!

When I ordered the collar I spoke to the guy who actually makes them to give him specific sizing info. I wish I could remember his name now because he was very nice and the collar came just as I'd ordered.

FYI - we have no affiliation with this collar maker - we just really like the product.

Thank you Wanda!I was hoping you would start a new thread!I'm thinking of getting rolled leather collars for both my boys as they tend to mat around the collar area.I was told that rolled collars were less likely to snag the coat.Glad to hear that has been your experience!

Julie,

I've been using the rolled leather collar for the last few months and it's been a life sifer, or should I say Bugsy's coat saver. There is absolutely no matting with a rolled leather collar, but he only wears it when outside. Now if I could only find a harness that doesn't mat, flatter or otherwise tangle his coat, I would be really happy. I tried the Puppia harness that many on here like, but it tangles and mats his coat. I might give a timberwolf soft, woven step in harness a try next. But, what I really wish is that they would make a rolled leather harness. Does anyone know if there is one available anywhere?

Wanda,

Is the buckle hard to open and close? I saw some rolled leather collars in the petstore (they were thicker and not as nice as the ones on the website you gave us the link for), but I had a *really* hard time with the buckle. I gave up.

The rolled leather seems like a great idea for long-haired dogs!

I guess I'm really out of touch cause I've never heard of "rolled collars"! But I plan to look into getting one! Thanks for bringing me into the 21st century!

If you have PayPal and use eBay, be sure to check that site for rolled leather collars once in a while too. I got a nice quality black one for Piaget for less than $20 (including shipping) that came from a seller in Germany. Over here, it seems like the really good ones cost $20+ and I have to go get them too.

If you can get to a dog show (at least in Northern California), you will occasionally find a vendor who will carry the decent ones there.

Janet,

Wow, thanks so much for the link to the rolled leather harness, I just bookmarked it so I can order from them after I take Bugsy's measurements. It's kinda pricey, but that's ok, he is worth it.
