    Question Bridle Leather Collars/Leashes?

    Aside from Dover and SmartPak, does anyone know of anywhere that sells good quality bridle leather leashes and collars for small, yappy dogs?

    And if you've gotten one from Dover or SmartPak, how's the quality?

    Default Thanks!

    I am quite bad at the search function...so I've gotten to the point that I don't even try anymore.

    Default Stibbar

    I've plugged em before and I'll plug em again:

    I love em! Definitely wish I bought more! Yes they have collars, too. I love this leather. It is not bridle leather as requested: this is softer/more flexible and lighter which I prefer for my small dogs. The bridle leather collars & leashes I have seen are quite stiff and that transmits to small dogs. When the neck is only 10" the bridle leather seems to not break in much with wear.

    Good point on the stiffness, bicoastal. I did buy the rolled Quillin collar for a friend's little dog and it was very supple. It's this one, here:

    I've never handled their leashes, but all of their leather goods I've seen have been very soft (not in a bad way, though--just supple.)

    Tory Leather makes nice collars and belts, reins. I have had belts and collars from Tory.
    Gundog Supply makes a fair priced, good leather collar. I have the K-9 Komfort for mine(3/4" with brass plate) on my dogs now.

    I have a Quillin dog collar and its just right... not too stiff not too floppy (though it hasn't had any cleaning/conditioning yet). It looks sharp on my hound dog and no jingle jangles!

    Another vote for Quillin. Their leather is wonderful quality and pre-oiled. The brass plates are the best I've ever seen! I am a leather SNOB, it takes a lot to impress me
