We love our dogs like our children. Many people who can not have children, decide to have dogs instead. And, just like children, they will occasionally misbehave, especially during walks in the park or on the side of the road. There have been many instances when pet owners have been sued because their pet attacked a person or another dog.
In order to prevent such a tragedy, leash laws have been put into place. Your dog is not allowed to leave your property without being on a leash. In order to attach a leash, you need a collar. With a strong leather dog collar and a sturdy leash you can maintain control over your dog while walking. Dogs are naturally curious. They like to sniff and smell everything. A proper leash and leather dog collar will keep your dog at your side and prevent him from running after an interesting scent he might have picked up.
If you can't find a collar you like, you can easily create your own leather dog collar. This can be a lot of fun and you are able be design it any way you like. You can use an existing leather belt, or start from scratch. Since a leather belt already has a buckle and adjusting holes, this is the easiest way to start. Simply measure the neck of your dog and make the collar 3 to 4 inches longer than the actual neck size for comfort. Stitch the ends and decorate the collar any way you like. Fun and easy! Since leather dog collars are standardized to appeal to the masses, making your own allows you to stitch your dog's name right into the leather.
Whether you buy a leather dog collar or make your own, it is an important accessory your dog should not be without. It is important for attaching identification tags and leashes. Keep your pet safe. Get a good strong dog collar.
