Collars and Leashes
All K-9 Custom Leather dog collars and leashes are handmade using only the best American-made, vegetable-tanned leathers. We have found these leathers take dye and hold tooling the best, and they provide a superior appearance and greater durability than other leathers.
Our custom dog collars start at $25. Collar prices vary depending on how you choose to accent the collar.
Leather dog leashes start at $20 and can be designed to match or complement the collar. You can choose a leash length that best fits you and your dog.
The photos on this page show examples of various dyes, buckles, conchos, crystals, rivets and the collar size. Many times customers ask "How many conchos should I put on my dog's collar?" This depends on the size of the dog, but smaller dogs can wear wider collars and have at least two, 3/4 inch conchos on their collar. The d-ring centered is real cute for the smaller dog. Dogs with neck sizes of 14-18" can wear collars with up to three, 3/4 inch or 1 inch conchos. 19 inches on up can wear more.
Measuring for a Collar
All K-9 Custom Leather collars are custom made. So, it is important to measure your dog carefully. A collar should be loose around the neck, but not so loose that it will slip over your dog's head.
To measure your dog for a leather collar, measure around his/her neck where the collar would rest. Use a measuring tape and pinch the tape together, then try to put it over the dog's head. If you succeed, your measurement is too big. The collar should fit securely, but it should be comfortable.
We will make your dog collar with two holes: one secure and one larger.
If you have a buckle collar that fits your dog, measure it from the buckle to the hole that fits as show in the picture below.
Measure from where the buckle and the tongue meet to the hole that fits.
This Antique Tan collar has a Standard Brass buckle and Southwest Tooling.
A full list of leather dye colors is presented on the Request a Quote page.
Buckles & Conchos
Buckles and conchos for dog collars and leashes come in many sizes, shapes and finishes and can be seen on our Buckles and Conchos page. When choosing buckles and conchos, remember to consider the size of your dog. Some can be a little heavy for small dogs, while others may be too petite for large dogs.
Since all of our work at K-9 Custom Leather is custom, there are no extra charges to make a perfect fit for your dog. Choose a style featured on this page or specify a design of your own.
