Would you like to add a nameplate?

A slip dog collar, traditional and minimalist in style, 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.

The Biothane strapping has been paired with high quality brass hardware. Clip the lead to the O Ring to have the collar function as a slip collar or clip to the O ring and dee ring together to act as a regular, non-tightening, dog collar.

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.

Please note: this collar is designed to be used under supervision when walking your dog. If you are unfamiliar with slip collars, please choose another of our Biothane custom dog collars instead.

Customisation Options

Strap - your choice of MANY colours of waterproof Biothane strapping.

Hardware - your choice of either gold (solid brass) or silver (nickel-plated solid brass).

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. The standard placement of the nameplate is directly opposite the coupled O ring hardware, visible on the top of your dog's neck. However, if you would like a different placement just let us know - we can attach it wherever you like.

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.


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 easy to clean, lightweight yet resistant to chewing and scratching.

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.

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

Since each collar is handmade, there may be small marks and slight variations in the stamping. These imperfections don't diminish the collar's quality beauty, but rather add to the charm of having a unique, handmade product.


The width of the Biothane ranges from 12-25mm depending on your dog's size. It is approximately 2.5mm thick and the length will depend on the size of your dog.

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

Sizing Guide

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 internal circumference of the slip collar when relaxed on your dog. There will be a small amount of 'give' available to get it over your dog's head.

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.

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, slip collars are not suitable.
- 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”).

Care Guide

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

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