The Haute Couture version of our 'Plain Dane' Collar, the 'Best Buddy', is a beautifully crafted collar which takes the traditional style collar to the next level.
Handmade [by us] from the exceptional quality, vegetable tanned, English Bridle leather, in three stunning colours. Teamed with low lead, sold brass hardware, this collar will last for years + years if it is cared for appropriately.
We have chosen to feature the contrasting inner of the hide, which is largely undyed, on the edges of this item. There may be some bleed marks where the dyes have penetrated into the hide - we love this effect. It reminds us of the true nature of leather and the hard, manual, work that goes into making this leather. We still seal the edges, we just don't dye or paint them to cover this up. Over time they will deepen in colour as they absorb oils.
Our collars come in a variety of widths to suit a variety of dogs! Please note that the 32mm + 38mm wide collar have a slightly more rounded buckle and a double row of rivets.
Each collar may stretch a small amount over time, given the nature of leather.
➳ COLLAR SIZING PROFILES - 'PERFETCT FIT'© | 'PUPPY FIT'©:
It is imperitive that you measure your dog's neck (do NOT measure their collar!). You can find instructions on how to do this, HERE. Unfortunately we cannot offer refunds or exchanges for collars where you have provided an incorrect measurement.
- For a 'PERFECT FIT' collar, enter your dog's neck measurement in the Custom Field [ eg. 34cm Perfect Fit ]. We will then make your collar with the measurement you provide, as the middle hole.
- We can also make our 'PUPPY FIT' collars - where the current neck measurement is the smallest hole and we leave room for your puppy to grow through the sizes: enter [ eg. 28cm Puppy Fit ] in the Custom Field.
- If you leave the Custom Field EMPTY, you will receive a collar in the 'STANDARD FIT' sizing, outlined in the Info Section.
