My Chihuahua/terrier mix is one stylish little guy. He has tons of shirts, ties—you name it—but no single item is more crucial to his wardrobe than his leather dog collar. He wears it every day, so it was important to find one that fit comfortably in addition to looking great. (What can I say? He’s a little vain. It works for him.)
Leather collars are the epitome of class and style. There are tons of options out there, with choices to suit every single unique pet. That said, the options can be overwhelming. Using your dog’s specific needs as a guide can help you narrow down the many choices. Padding and rolled edges can help minimize chafing for dogs with thinner fur, for example, while a martingale style is best for greyhounds and other sight hounds, and thicker collars will stand out more on larger dogs.
We’ve rounded up a wide range of the best leather dog collars around to help you pick the right one for your pup.
