New in Red!

As with most Dogsnug products, our collars are custom-made and can be personalised with your loved dog’s initials.

Available in black with various embossings, and now in red for a touch of passionate elegance.

  • All our dog collars are lined with a very soft quality leather suede. This ensures that your dog’s neck is caressed and protected from chafing when the dog collar is worn. This is particularly important when it comes to breeds of dogs such as sighthounds for two main reasons: their skin is often more delicate than other dog breeds and the collar needs to be wider to avoid slipping off their long and slim necks.
  • The soft lining paired with burnished edges for a smooth finish of the leather makes sure that your dog’s neck is protected, from the fragile Italian Greyhound to the stronger Lurcher.
  • The buckle and D ring are made of solid brass for extra security and ensure that it doesn’t ‘buckle’ at an inappropriate time.
  • Last but not least, the collars are sewn with a sturdy and stable machine stitch to provide extra longevity to the product.
  • Collars are 100% handmade, from treating the leather at our selected tannery all the way through cutting the leather to preparing and finishing the product, and are available in a range of widths and sizes to ensure a perfect fit. Collars for sighthound breeds are tapered to ensure the dog doesn’t slip out.

Collars are made in two different widths depending on the size:

  • the smaller sizes are 3.5 - 4cm wide, making the collar light and pliable but extremely strong so great for puppies, Italian Greyhounds and Whippets
  • bigger sizes are 4.5 - 5cm wide, suitable for bigger dog breeds such as Lurchers, taller Whippets and Greyhounds.

For maximum style and class, match with a Dogsnug Leather Dog Lead.

About our leather

At Dogsnug we use only the best quality vegetable tanned leather available. We source our leather uniquely from a local tannery in the heart of England which uses traditional hand working methods. This is a labour intensive process and justifies the high price we pay for this type of leather. Our leather is a bi-product of the EU meat industry.

There are three qualities we look for in our leather:

  1. Appearance – it must look good. It must have a good depth of colour and age well without natural imperfections that weaken the leather
  2. Tactility – it must be smooth, comfortable and flexible to handle
  3. Durability – we expect it to last for many years so must be exceptionally strong and withstand the elements.
Good quality leather is a reassuring nod to how things used to be: a time of doing things slowly, carefully and with pride. A natural material that demands considered care and attention so that it can produce beautiful objects that can be treasured for many years. In today’s world, there aren’t many things that get better with age – good leather is one of them.

    Good quality, slight fit issue

    Winnie is my one year old bedlington, and I got the medium fleece. She's about 28 lbs. It fits her perfectly everywhere except in length, where it's too long. I measured her at 22 inches. I'm probably going to add a drawstring along the back to have it kept snug over her bum but that would actually be a great feature to be built into this already. She loves her new sweater, it's very soft and the weight will be perfect for the cooler and rainy Canadian months. I am particularly fond of the high neck that could be rolled down or kept up, for extra warmth. I also like that this isn't baggy so it could be layered with a jacket when winter makes its appearance.

    Bella looks so trendy in her pink harness and loves it! Will be glad to send you a photo soon, love the light weight and matching lead. Still to try it on a run, will update soon. Only thing I would recommend is to keep customer updated on dispatch date I was unsure what the delivery time was! Love the detail!

    Lovely quality

    We ordered the pineapple tropical version for our French bulldog princess with the matching lead. We are delighted with it, quality excellent, lovely summer print and she looks very stylish! Please make other patterns in this style!

    cooling vest -

    Arrived promptly, excellent fit, works brilliant, thanks.

    Super cute but doesn’t cool for very long

    I love the little pineapple design, it’s perfect for the summer, however the ‘cooling’ panel at the front doesn’t seem to be more than a few bits of thin fabric... not like the normal cooling fabric you see around.
