Dog Collar, Latigo Leather
Pictured 1 1/4 inch wide
Medium sized breeds pictured
Custom Made for the Discerning Canine
A friend wanted a gift for an Australian Kelpie. A dog that knows its way around a herd! A dog not to be understated!
My job was to come up with designs that had as much personality as this dog!
Ready made now is size 14 (holes for 14, 13.5, 13, 12.5, 12) Great for a smaller to mid-sized dog.
COLLAR BASIC FACTS:
-All leather is hand cut, trimmed and edged
-Buckles chosen for strength and durability
-All decorations are hand riveted and reinforced for durability
-Latigo means "girth strap"—the strap that braces the saddle under the horse's belly: very tough. Just think how important that strap is on a saddle!
-The tanning process removes stretch
-CAN GET WET! (the leather will darken and soften)
-Will let some color when wet
-All natural vegetables dyes (pet safe)
WHY 1 1/2 INCHES WIDE?
Besides looking nice, the wider leather is better proportioned to larger necks. Control is easier, the collar does not cut in as much (less likely to damage windpipes), and it is more difficult for wrestling dogs to get their teeth under.
-Dogs can still choke…it is the owner's responsibility to properly fit collars and supervise their pets
