Approximately ​63.4 million U.S. households own a dog and spend a total of $99 billion annually on their furry friends.

Because we consider our pets a part of our family, the purchase of each pet product or service is a crucial decision, and many owners refuse to spare any expense. 

The purchase of a dog collar for our pet is one of the most important purchases you can make because of what gets attached to it: the leash, ID tags, and license are all critical to keeping your pet safe. 

Despite their necessity, not all types of collars are created equal. They come in a wide range of styles and made with a variety of different types of materials. Choosing between them can feel overwhelming. Arming yourself with useful information will help you make a decision that is right for you, your pup, and your unique situation.

Why Tuscan Italian Leather for a dog collar? Tuscan Italian leather dog collars are a luxury option that has grown in popularity due to their comfort, durability, beauty, wide range of colors, and easy care, not to mention their anti-microbial properties. 

Benefits of Tuscan Leather Dog Collars 

Whether for fun and fashion or safety and security, a dog collar is a necessary expense for anyone who cares about the safety and security of a pet.

Safety

There are a number of different ways to identify your pet. Some owners prefer tags while others would rather add nameplates to collars. While this decision is largely an individual one, the type of collar may dictate the type of tag.

For example, the shape of a rolled leather collar does not allow for a nameplate. Conversely, most flat collars, whether fabric, nylon, or leather, will accept either a nameplate that is riveted to the collar, a slider that is slid over the collar or tags that are fastened to the same dee-ring that the leash is fastened to. Whatever method you choose, wearing a nametag helps ensure that your dog is  one of only 10% that return home on their own after wandering off or getting lost. 

Design

Dog collars come in an assortment of styles, from those with a center ring in the back, those with a side release buckle in either plastic or metal, or those with a standard buckle, usually in either nickel or brass, martingale style dog collars that are used for training and  slip over a dog’s head and those that are used in combination with a walking harness.

Rolled collars are the preferred choice for dogs with long fur. But, any collar with smooth finished edges will glide through a dog’s fur, maximizing comfort and helping protect the coat from damage.

Tuscan Italian leather dog collars are beautifully designed using top quality leathers that are anti-microbial and are naturally soft and comfortable. The edges are finished for comfort and style. Each collar uses a standard buckle that is both secure and stylish. Its flat design makes it a natural for adding a nameplate or charms  to show off its features with distinction.

Materials

The types of materials used are the basis for proper design and function of a dog collar.

Nylon is an inexpensive option that many choose for its availability.

Ribbon or fabric collars come in many fun and colorful options to reflect your unique personality.

Bridle leather is prized by professionals and trainers for its timeless beauty, durability, and resistance to odors.

Tuscan Italian Leathers are similar to bridle leathers, but start soft, like a pair of jeans that are already comfortable with that broken-in feel. But, not only are they comfortable, they have the added benefit of being available in a wide range of exciting colors.

Choosing the proper material will not only be comfortable for your pet, it will also ensure comfort for you when you choose a matching leash. Since leather is a time-tested material that tends to become more comfortable as it ages – and since Tuscan Italian leather begins soft – you are sure to be pleased.

Durability 

Dog collars are made of a wide range of materials that differ in strength and lifespan. 

You’ll want to choose a strong material that is appropriate for your dog’s lifestyle and personality.

Leather is a long-lasting material that can withstand daily usage, challenging weather conditions, and more.

Because of leather’s durability, purchasing a leather dog collar will save you money in the long run because you won’t have to pay to replace it as often.

Quality leather, as with Tuscan Italian leather, is resistant to bacteria, making it the preferred choice compared to nylon and fabric.

Other things to consider when purchasing a dog collar

Puppies grow fast. Make sure to check the collar’s fit regularly so that you aren’t surprised that your pup has outgrown his collar.

You may likely have to purchase an adult size dog collar, if you bought the collar when your dog was a puppy. This is a great time to reassess your dog’s needs and personality as well as your preferences and the way you use the collar.

Because leather is a natural material, you may find that it has stretched over time. It is important to check the fit and condition of your leather collar for signs of wear.
