As a pet owner, you only want the best for your best friend. You know it takes time to find the perfect leather collar for your dog. What some owners don’t realize is that leather products require care and conditioning. Since leather is technically an animal skin, it can become worn down from natural elements and lack of oils. This required care will depend on what type of leather your collar is made of.
We suggest an Italian Leather or English Bridle collar.
Designer Italian Leather is a type of leather collar that is soft to the touch right away. These collars also come in a variety of bright colors vs neutrals. As a bonus, this is a water resistant leather which helps keep the color of your collar true from day one.
English Bridle Leather is a leather that uses precise stitching, making this type of collar incredibly durable. This type of leather will be stiff when purchased but do not worry. Over time the leather will soften thanks to the natural oils in your pet’s coat.
The best way to care for leather products is by using a leather cleaner to get all of the residue and grime off of the collar. Additionally, you can use a leather conditioner on a regular basis to keep the collar waterproofed, moisturized and looking new. We have a superb leather conditioner available here.
