Hide and Collars

Let me introduce myself to you.
My name is Libby Bale and Hide and Collars is celebrating its 16th Anniversary this year.

I realised that there was a shortage of good quality leather dog collars and leads.
So, I decided to design and make a range of quality collars and leads for mans best friend, to suit most breeds and their needs...and a little extra too.

I have been involved and owned horses all my life, so my knowledge of good quality, strong leather and quality workmanship was my starting point.
All my dog collars and leads are made by hand in my workshop by me using traditional methods, hand cut and hand stitched using the best quality English Bridle Leather.

The information below is to help with the measurement of your dog to selected the correct size.
Also a colour guide of all the colours I use for my collars and leads.


The colours, reading from top to bottom, are:

Dark Blue
Dark Green
Light Havana
Australian Nutt

Please note that colours may vary slightly.

Neck Measurement

Place a soft measure around the mid section of the dog's neck, and place two fingers between the measure and the neck.
In the case of small dogs, and dogs with fine hair, one finger may be sufficient. This is the size to order.

Or you can measure a collar that fits your dog.Lay the collar out flat and measure from the tip of the buckle to the hole that is used. This is the size to order.

How to measure for half check collars and show sets.

Place a soft measure up behind the ears and take a firm measurement (not tight). This is the size to order. The chain will open 5 inches (12.7 cm) to allow the collar to go over the head and drop to the base of the neck.

If the dog is still growing, be sure to mention this.
