Northstar is a soft and vibrant, retired climbing rope that measures slightly over 1/2 inch.

Safety is very important to us, so we make sure to use the strongest hardware that can hold up to even the rowdiest of dogs!

We have several leather options to choose from so make sure to include you preference in the 'notes to seller' at checkout. Also, rope ends can be frayed based on request.

➼➼➼ Are you looking for a length that you don't see listed? We LOVE custom orders so just let us know if you have something else in mind! Don't forget to check out our ADD-ONS section for ways to customize your leash even more! Add a name plate, metalic leather, etc.

All of our products are made in the USA! Every item is handmade and we put a significant amount of time and love into each piece <3

How do I properly measure my dogs neck for your slip on collars?

We made an instructional Youtube video to show exactly how (and where) to to measure your pet for our unique collars. Please contact us for the link to the video and a few other pointers to ensure proper sizing!

Please note- You cannot simply measure your dog's current fitted collar and use that measurement. You should be able to comfortably slip the collar on and off your dog's head. We suggest using fabric/cloth measuring tape or printable measuring tape that you can find online.
We have a few different styles available. You can view most of them in the 'Collars' section of our shop. The only style currently not listed is our Slip Collar.

If you have a dog with a larger head, please consider our Large Dog Collars. Large heads (typically Boxers, APBT, Mastiffs, etc.) may make it extra difficult to get a normal Slip On collar on and off. The clasp gives you the option of snapping on and off instead.

For dogs with narrow necks, (Greyhound and similar breeds) we suggest a Slip Collar which are available in any rope color, by request only. They have the ability to adjust size when walking.

For any necks under 13" we only suggest the Small Dog Collars because 1/2" rope can be too bulky in smaller sizes.
How do I clean my Rope Leash/Collar?

We suggest spot cleaning ONLY with warm water and a very mild detergent, avoiding leather and metal areas. Lay flat to dry.
