The Opening Half Check iis made from Sedgwicks 3.5 - 4mm bridle butt, hand cut, finished and stitched to make a strong, unique collar that will last a lifetime given correct care. It has the added benefit of being able to be opened up completely, rather than being enclosed, like the Adjustable Half Check, but retains the option of adjustability.
We are able to make these collars with either solid brass or stainless steel fittings. Brass makes for a smart, distinctive collar, is the traditional metal of choice of the saddlery trade and will never rust. We have added a stainless steel option to address the needs of owners of show dogs or dogs with white hair who have found that brass chain leaves a grey mark on the coat. Unlike many widely available brands our chain and fittings are solid stainless steel, so will never rust, discolour and are far less likely to mark the coat. Typically these collars are used in conjunction with a plain collar when the dog is walking on a lead, for training purposes etc.
Working out the correct size to order is easy, please see our sizing guide for information. If in doubt, please contact us.
