Would you like to add a nameplate?

A flat dog collar made of two straps of biothane, joined in the centre by an 'O' ring, custom made to ensure a bespoke fit for your dog. It is handmade using Biothane strapping (a waterproof alternative to leather - sometimes known as vegan leather or faux leather) and rust-proof hardware.

There is no need for a separate dog tag, as we can attach an optional, hand-stamped nameplate securely to the leather using rivets - a 'silent' alternative to a jingly dog tag.

The biothane strapping has been paired with a buckle and loop to ensure the strap stays securely in place, along with a dee ring for attaching a leash.

Customisation Options

Leather - your choice of MANY colours of waterproof Biothane strapping. Choose up to two for a contrasting look.

Hardware - your choice of either gold (solid brass), silver (nickel-plated solid brass) or black (plated zinc) hardware. The black hardware is rated to 160kg, so suited to small/medium dogs, not lead pullers.

Nameplate - if you would like a nameplate added, your dog's details will be hand-stamped and clearly seen on the solid brass or stainless steel nameplate.

Is this suitable for your pet?

If your dog has a history of being extremely tough on collars, such as, excessive pulling behaviour, we recommend using a specialty collar when attached to a leash or tie-out and keeping this biothane dog collar for 'good'. While our collars are extremely sturdy, and will withstand forceful tugging, there are determined dogs out there for which any collar is no match!

Please see our Sizing Guide for recommended collar widths.

Materials

BIOTHANE
Biothane is a brand name for a type of coated webbing that is made by bonding a PVC or TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) coating to a polyester or nylon webbing. This creates a strong, durable, and waterproof material that is ideal for use in dog collars and leashes.

HARDWARE
Cast from solid brass (or plated zinc, if black), our hardware has been selected for maximum strength and to ensure our products remain rust-free for life. All hardware is kept securely in place with strong solid brass rivets.

NAMEPLATE
A solid brass or stainless steel nameplate, attached securely to the collar using solid brass rivets to match the colour of the nameplate.

*BEAUTIFUL FLAWS*
As our collars are entirely handmade by us, marks from the tooling process and minor inconsistencies in the stamping will occur. Neither will detract from the quality and beauty of the collar, in fact we think this adds to the charm of choosing a handmade, unique product rather than something that has been mass-produced.

Dimensions

COLLAR
The width of the Biothane ranges from 1/2" to 1" depending on your dog's size. It is approximately 2.5mm thick.

NAMEPLATE
Small (for 1/2" and 3/4" wide collars) - 50 x 9.5mm - up to 2 lines of information in 2.5mm text
Large (for 1" wide collars) - 70 x 16mm - up to 3 lines of information in 3mm text

Sizing Guide

LENGTH
Using a soft tape measure, record the circumference of the neck at the point where a collar would naturally lie. Pull the tape so that it is snug but not tight. Enter this measurement in the 'Neck Measurement' box when selecting your custom options. This measurement will be the middle hole of the collar, we will add at least another two holes either side. If your dog is a puppy, please let us know and we will make an allowance for growth when sizing the holes for the collar.

Please feel free to give us a range (up to 12cm, i.e. 38-50cm) so that we can make sure there are enough holes to suit your dog's growth. We can be very flexible with the number of holes provided in the collar.

WIDTH
As a general guide we recommend that if your dog’s neck circumference is:
- less than 22cm (8.5") or puppy under 3 months old, choose our soft leather puppy collar
- 22 - 28cm (8.5 - 11”), choose 1/2” collar
- 26 - 30cm (10 - 12”), choose 3/4” collar
- 28 - 40cm + (11 - 16”+), choose 1” collar

Wider collars are stronger so please keep this in mind when you are selecting the collar width (basically, don’t walk a medium sized dog on a 1/2” collar! Choose at least 3/4” and preferably 1”). For medium sized breeds and larger, we highly recommend choosing our D-End Dog Collar which gives another layer of leather to pull against when attaching a lead to the dee ring.

Care Guide

Here are some tips for caring for a biothane dog collar:

1. Wipe down the collar regularly: Biothane collars are easy to clean with just a damp cloth. Wipe down the collar regularly to remove any dirt or debris that may have accumulated.

2. Wash the collar if necessary: If the collar gets particularly dirty, you can wash it in warm, soapy water. Be sure to rinse it thoroughly and let it air dry before using it again.

3. Avoid harsh chemicals: Avoid using any harsh chemicals or cleaners on the collar, as they can damage the material.

4. Store the collar properly: When not in use, store the collar in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

5. Check for wear and tear: Regularly inspect the collar for any signs of wear and tear, such as frayed edges or cracks in the material. If you notice any damage, replace the collar as soon as possible to ensure your dog's safety.
