We have designed our Padded Half Check collar as the ultimate in comfort, strength, appearance and exclusivity for you and your dog - every collar is entirely bespoke and made specifically for its canine recipient using the same craftsmen, materials and techniques as our bespoke belts. While we were developing this product we particularily took into account the needs of the owner of the stronger dog who may pull whilst walking on their lead. We use the very best panel hide to produce a smooth, soft, padded lining that overlaps the sides of the collar to help protect your dogs neck and windpipe and spreads the pressure produced by pulling or lunging at the lead over as wide an area as possible, with the objective of minimising the associated pain and tissue bruising that can result from this behaviour in a standard collar.
As with all our products this collar, including the lining, is entirely hand stitched for strength and will stand many years of use. We make our collars to a standard of craftsmanship unavailable in commonly available dog products and as such we are able to make this collar not only comfortable, tactile and visually appealing but also strong enough to cope with the training demands of large or strong dogs.
We are able to make these collars with either solid brass or solid stainless steel fittings. Brass makes for a smart, distinctive collar and 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 chains leave 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.
The collar is made to measure to the exact size you require so there are no bulky buckles or keepers around your dogs neck. Please see our guide to measuring your dog for your new half check collar here - the size you order is the length of the leather section only, NOT the total length including the chain. Please note all measurements are quoted in inches. The width of the collar you select below will be the width of the central Bridle Leather strap, the padding will be in addition to this. For example a collar ordered in 3/4" width will have a total width including padding of around 1 1/8" and a 1 1/4"ordered width will have a total width of around 1 7/8".
Please measure your dog/collar carefully before ordering as your collar will be made from scratch for you to your measurements. If in doubt, please call us on 0191 6408774 we are more than happy to help.
