A BETTER DOG COLLAR
Our hand-stitched leather dog collars are made especially for us, in four different colours, with hand-cast solid brass hardware, to match our leads. They are made to order and may take up to three weeks to deliver.
Craft: We work with a saddler who makes our collars using traditional saddlery techniques. No short cuts, no rivets and definitely no glue, but plenty of good strong stitching that will stand the test of time.
Leather: Our fine English bridle leather comes from J&E Sedgwick & Co, a British firm established in 1900, famous in the equestrian world for superior leather. Hand-finished to the highest standards, the leather is barrel-dyed so that it retains a deep strong colour all the way through. It wears extremely well.
Hardware: Our distinctive brass buckles are cast by hand, especially for Tales of Teddy, by one of the few remaining British brass buckle foundries serving the equestrian industry. Two reassuring details : our buckles have a roller (for longevity) and a discreet but distinctive stainless steel tongue (for extra strength).
Please visit Sizing Information to find the correct size for you dog and do note that while Small and Medium sizes come in a narrower, 3/4 inch width, the larger sizes come in a broader 1 inch width. Matching leads are available for both – see A Better Dog Lead.
