Hey guys. Yup, another collar thread here
So, I'm trying to move away from the pinch collar since it only amps up Kaiser's response (when he reacts...which, thankfully is getting better!). We are moving to a dominant dog collar + tab just for corrections in this case, however, I need another collar for his leash and regular training. Maybe I'm just turning girlie, but I really love the look of the carved/stamped leather collars. They get expensive though, and a picture doesn't necessarily vouch for quality. I'm looking for a beautiful collar, soft yet sturdy leather, that comes in a martingale style that WON'T break the bank. Probably only 1" thick. Kaiser is a long coat and while I don't like his fur to get matted down, I also don't like how he responds to the rolled leather collar we already have. I figure a 1" might be a good inbetween size from what I've used and what I wish I could get.
I've googled the heck out of this and I just don't like what I'm seeing. Also tried etsy but again, nothing really stood out. REALLY trying to stay under $50 though, so I'm sure I'm limiting my options.
Ideas? Pictures are welcome also
For those of you who haven't seen Kaiser, this is the floof I'm working with
