I'm looking for a nice wide (leather preferably) collar for Luna.

I can't find anything like this where I live so I will have to buy online but I am wary of buying things over the net. It was a push for me to buy Luna's crate off Ebay!

If any of you have some links (which you trust) I would be so grateful :)

I just measured her neck and I need 20 inches and bigger :scared:

I usualy use Ebay as we only have [email protected] here & they never seem to have large leather collars in stock :rolleyes: as long as the sellers feedback is round the 100% you should'nt have any problems :)
I'm looking at the top sellers but I'm still a little wary :eek: I've been scammed in the past so don't want to waste £30+ on a collar that will never arrive.

ive bought from annrees before from her webshop and from ebay in the past and for gifts.

She handmakes the collars to your specifications so if there isnt one to suit, it may be an idea to message her.

She does padded, plain, hide, hound, and half check collars and leads. All in your measurements and your colours.

Theyre not the cheapest out there, but considering they are bespoke and excellent quality i cant reccomend them enough. I bought one of her 2in padded ones for my friends DDB (it was friends 40th but she refused any presents for herself - denial ;) )and its still going strong 4 years later!

Thank you! That's a wonderful place to start and I love those colours :D
I don't mind how much it costs (though obviously not over £50) as I want it to last and be able to stand up against the daily wear and tear.

We have some lovely, really hardwearing leather collars - solid leather (no stitching) so they are really strong and very long lasting.

The 1 inch collars would all be suitable for a GSD (or Mastiff cross) - my large Flatcoat wears them (he has a Murphy, a Pandora and a George).


(wearing his Pandora!)



You can see how the studs go right through the leather, and the buckle is fitted using secure rivets.

If you take a look at the Leather Collars page you can see the full range. Some are just over your price max. but postage & packing is free :) (we actually have one with turquoise studs on sale for £35 at present - see pic above)

Hope you like them.

This large leather collar is £2 - £3 .. postage is about £3 ish

Have you got a local saddlery? Sometimes they make real leather dog leads and collars xx
What a good idea! I'd have never considered speaking to them tbh. We have loads where I live. When Monty needs a bigger collar (which will be soon, he's growing quick!), I'll pop in and ask them :)

I got nice leather leads in my local saddlery, a bit expensive, but very good quality and superb real leather, hand crafted, and have lasted me like forever!!! If they don't have any in stock, they can probably make one for you xxx

Anyone looking for handmade English leather leads, TRPD have a couple for sale at the moment :

6’ 8” long x 5/8” wide, hand made, English Oak Bark tanned leather dog lead with a solid brass trigger clip and a ring on the handle for shortening to half length – suitable for a large dog. This is a naturally tanned, mellow brown, strong but extremely supple leather, with a high tallow dressing that helps to ensure it will stand up to all weathers and heavy use. (I am still using items such as stirrup leathers made from this type of leather that are nearly 40 years old, and still perfectly serviceable!)

(Minimum bid of £14.00p, please.)



31” long x 1” wide, hand made, English Oak Bark tanned leather dog lead with a solid brass trigger clip – suitable for a large dog. This is a naturally tanned, mellow brown, strong but extremely supple leather, with a high tallow dressing that helps to ensure it will stand up to all weathers and heavy use.



ALL money from these sales go into making goods for rescues. Anyone interested let me know.:thumbup:

Great price! However I am looking for a collar that is very thick (she has snapped thin collar just by stretching on the lead :eek:) and I want to spoil her so I'm looking for the 'best' :eek:

I love the Harris and Watson collars. Very very nice!!! I'm slowly making my way through the rest of the links :thumbup: Snoringbear can I ask how much you paid for a collar?

You'll probably need to sit down. Mine were pretty high spec being padded and all and bespoke handmade collars aren't cheap anyway. I got two collars with two matching leads together for £240 inc P&P. To break it down I imagine the leads were £20 each the collars £100. One is 1/2" longer than the other as they are made to the exact size of the dogs neck. I know it seems like a lot but mine go through other collars pretty quickly and I'd already seen his work at a Club Match so I new what I was getting. They are IMO incomparable to most of the pet shop collars out there in construction and quality. I had the large Hamish Mcbeth ones before (£30 each) and they just stretched the leather apart and amusingly, the morning that the collars arrived, I took one of my dogs old collars off and the prong just sheared off and dropped to the floor :rolleyes: Side by side I could see how poor my old ones were, but at about 6 months, they had outlasted one I got from [email protected] which fell apart after 6 weeks. The important thing as well is that they are very strong and can be made wide enough to give good coverage of the vertebrae. They will probably outlast the dogs, too. The cheapest one is probably the bull breed one at £55.
