The Leather Man Dog Collar is hand made in in Essex, CT. All hardware is solid cast brass. The heavy duty nylon web is 1¼“ wide to reduce choking. Sewn in to the nylon is the Norwalk Yacht Club’s custom woven ribbon. And two D-Rings are sewn into every collar. One for the tags and one for the leash – something you will appreciate if you are trying to attach a leash to a soaking wet dog.
