I like to go simple: 2 inch wide, brown/black leather collar. Same with the leash: brown/black leather. (no print, design, or color)
Simple, yet elegant.

Bold Lead Designs, they hand make these leather collars and also custom make service dog equipment and leashes. The leather is really soft and they were one of the only companies I found that made leather collars with quick release hardware.
OOOooh, love those!!

I use a narrow web collar on both Jas and Xerxes. It has the quick release catch. I will never ever get a buckle collar for my dogs. My younger brother used to live two doors down from me. He had a fenced in back yard. He had 2 dogs, one was a golden and the other was, they thought, a blue healer shepherd mix. They found him one winter. One day I answered the door where someone was frantically pounding on it. It was my brothers wife screaming for my help. I ran over and saw that the blue healers buckle collar had got caught on the goldens canines and he was slowly choking to death. We frantically tried to cut the collar, pull it free, everything we could think of to no avail. We had to watch that poor animal slowly choke to death. It was horrible. After that, I have only ever got quick release collars. It is a very horrific memory.

The leather on the two leather collars is really soft yet thick and durable, it doesn't feel cheap or stiff like the leather stuff they have at big name pet stores.





Where did you buy these? I really like the looks of them!!

My favourite is a 1 inch martingale. Secure, safe, reliable, great for everyday use.

Koda has:
A very thin (slightly thicker than show) choke-chain
A 1" wide pink spiked collar made of material that resembles leather but is softer
A 2-3" wide red Nylon spiked collar

Jazz has far more leashes than she has collars. Her regular collar that she has on all the time is a nylon, quick release (I think that's what you'd call it), collar made by Hamilton. It's one of these:


The only other collar she has is a Martingale collar made by The Ultimate Leash company who is a sponsor here. It's this one:

I love Gabe's new collar. I just bought him a 1" leather martingale from California Collar Co. It's attractive and masculine and just seems well-made.
