Tapered Plain Leather Collars

Our classic Tapered Hound collars suit all breeds of sighthound and other dogs with long necks. Affords protection to the throat if your dog pulls on lead or has a high prey drive.

Handmade in our UK workshops from premium quality English bridle leather and lined with soft Italian clothing hide for extra comfort. Vegetable-tanned leather is a centuries-old process that uses vegetable matter to create exceptionally strong, long-lasting leather of the highest quality.  No chemicals are involved in the tanning process of the leathers we use.

Every purchase comes with a full written guarantee setting a benchmark for our high quality. We also offer a lifetime repair service in the unlikely event it should ever be needed.
