This collar was so worth the wait. The craftsmanship is unbelievable, I put it on my bulldog right away and I can already tell it's going to last forever. It fits him great and I just love the skulls. Very heavy and well made - necessary for him since he is so strong and energetic, he has ripped 2 other collars. Thank you so much!!!

Thanks for stopping by! All items in our Etsy shop are in stock and ready to ship. We do have a line of customizable collars and harnesses available at our regular website, but everything here on Etsy is sold 'as is'. Everything is handmade from scratch at our workshop in Los Angeles by a single artisan and her trusty apprentice that we like to call 'The Hammer'.

RETURNS/EXCHANGES: All items on our Etsy site can be returned for a full refund of purchase price (less shipping fees) within 14 days of receipt.

EXCHANGES: It's never a problem to exchange your item for a different size. Shipping fees are non-refundable on exchanges.

If you'd like to return/exchange an item, just send it back to our workshop with a note stating whether you'd like a refund or exchange. Be sure to contact us first so we know to look out for your package in the mail.

• All items must be in like new condition and must be returned in their original packaging.
• Any items that show signs of wear are not eligible for refund or exchange.
• Generally speaking, putting a collar on your dog and letting him/her trot around the house to check the fit will not create any significant signs of wear.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We know it's tempting, but please refrain from trying to break in your collar by rolling or twisting it with your hands. This will begin the break in process and will render the collar ineligible for refund or exchange. Any item that is returned to us in unsatisfactory condition will either be returned to you or donated to a local rescue group. No refund shall be given on these items.
We accept payment via Paypal. California residents will be charged 9.75% sales tax.

Additional policies and FAQs

Of course! All of our items come with a lifetime structural guarantee. Should any buckles, d-rings or rivets fail, we'll repair them for free. Should the leather itself split or break from material defect, we will repair or replace your collar for free. This warranty covers defects in materials and craftsmanship only and does not cover damage caused by your dog.

If any spots, studs, ornaments or name plates come loose or fall off within 3 years of purchase, we'll repair them for free. Any requested ornamental repairs after the first 3 years may be subject to a small repair fee.

The construction of our collars and harnesses makes it impossible to replace worn out linings. Because of this, there is no warranty available on that portion of our products.


The English bridle leather we use for our products is the same leather that is used in high end equestrian gear, so it's meant to take a beating. Freshwater exposure is just fine, but you should avoid saltwater if you can. If your gear does happen to find its way into the briny deep, rinse it with freshwater and let it air dry. For best results, use a natural leather conditioner after it dries.

We recommend treating your leather with a waterproofer if it's going to be subjected to repeated and excessive exposure to water. This is not absolutely necessary, but it will help keep your leather looking its best.

Wet leather stretches, so we recommend removing the collar until it's dry to help it keep its shape. Removing the collar will also be much more comfortable for your dog. Wearing a wet collar is kind of like sitting around in a wet pair of jeans ;)

The fine garment lambskin linings we use in our collars are definitely NOT waterproof. So if your dog likes to muck around in the water a bit, we suggest hopping over to our 'regular' website and ordering a collar without the lining.


Each of our products are entirely handmade from scratch, so there may be a slight variation in the design from time to time. Nothing major, of course! But the handmade nature of our products means that no two items will be exactly the same.

Colors vary from monitor to monitor. And with leather being a natural product, it can pick up dye a little differently from piece to piece. Because of this, there is no guarantee that the "real life" color of your collar will be exactly what you see on your monitor.


In a word, no ;) Our materials are just too heavy for the wee ones and we have no plans to release a toy breed line in the near future.
