|About the leather collars on this page|
A few exceptions aside, the leather dog collars on this page are up to 1 inch wide, and available in extra small (XS, XXS), small (S), medium (M) and large (L). Therefore these collars mainly fit tiny dogs ("teacup size"), small dogs, medium sized dogs and for some large dogs.
Extra large leather collars for really big dogs and for the giants, are mainly in the higher price categories, $20.00 and up, see our menu. The same is true for extra wide leather dog collars.
A plain leather dog collar looks great on any dog, mixed breed, hybrid or purebred. Leather collars are classic and of timeless beauty, tough some are typical for the latest fashion in dog wear. Pink leather collars, for example, other "hot colors", and leather collars with a remarkable stitching pattern, a faux croc pattern and alike.
Although a leather collar can suit any dog, there is one downside. If you're dog is a mud-monster, you may consider buying a collar that is waterproof, dirt and stain resistant and very easy to clean. For example a SunGlo collar (you'll find them on this page) may be your best choice.
Other than that, it's mainly a matter of taste whether you like a plain leather collar, or one with spikes, studs or lots of bling, a nylon dog collar or one of the many other choices available. Visit our main menu please, to get a good idea of all the different dog collar types that are available.

It's always a good idea to let your dog wear an id tag.
In our category personalized dog collars you can find collars with custom name plates, and collars with embroidered ID information.
An alternative is to buy a "dangling" ID tag, along with the collar.
