Default Do you condition your leather collar/leash?

I am extremely new to this, so sorry if this is one of "those" kind of questions. I was wondering if you guys condition/treat your leather collars, leashes, or harnesses? If so, how often? Thanks

Nope, I couldn't see it being a bad thing to do it though

I do when I first get them, you really should on occasion as it acts as a water barrier.

I have horses, so I use my tack cleaning products. You can find something suitable at a tack shop

I run leather new over them from time to time....if something gets really wet or dirty, I clean with murphy's oil soap then condition with Black Rock Conditioner....also a long time horse person, so I use the same methods I did on horse stuff....

you can get the more common stuff in a farm and feed store, or horse supply store or on line easily

I condition all my leather products but not as often as I probably should. For leashes I clean with Murphy's oil soap and then condition with Lexol. My last dog's leather leash lasted 15 years with such treatment and we walked in all weather.

Do you drink a Dos Equis while conditioning your leather?

But of course!

How else would I be able to tolerate leather conditioning?!

You don't actually want to over condition leather goods, especially if they have stitching.

It's best to wipe them clean with a damp cloth and /or a leather cleaner if they get really dirty. Condition every now and then, but not all the time

The best products I find for my horses bridles is the Passier Lederbalsam and cleaner.

I condition collars and necessary. Usually about once per month of wear. I don't condition leashes, but they would probably last longer if I did. I use biothane more than anything nowadays.
