This rugged collar is ready to ship and has two big paw prints stamped on either side of the quote plus a little doggie symbol on the tail end as well as on the underside, behind the buckle (as shown in the 3rd photo)
Mesa Dreams dog collars are all handmade, using stainless steel rivets, dee rings and buckles - I use all vegetable tanned leathers and eco-flo non-toxic stains and varnishes. Each letter and symbol is hand stamped one at a time :)
This collar is 3/4 inch wide and has holes at 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 inches.

**All of our items are handmade! We produce our items with love, with two human hands :), so lettering will never be machine-straight! We love this about our goods, but you should be aware of that fact before buying. Handmade goods have handmade marks of individuality, and that's the heart of the charm!**
LEATHER CARE**** Super important info to know****
Leather is a natural skin and is not waterproof.. All my pieces are coated in a water-resistant vanish that will keep it safe from the occasional drop here and there but please, do not immerse in water for any length of time. The leather will absorb water, warp and the stain will wash away - repeated exposure to water eventually rots leather and weakens it to the point it will snap with any pressure. This is especially important to know for dog collars.
If your dog loves to swim, please use a nylon collar for those times - nylon will outlast us all, whether we want it to or not ;) Please remove the leather collar for baths and any other wet and sloppy good times!
Just like your leather jacket or shoes, over time you may want to condition the leather and reseal it.. there are many great leather care products on the market, plus you can take it to a shoe repair shop and they will freshen it up for you! Soon I will be offering leather conditioner and varnishes in the shop for at-home upkeep
