About

LongDog Leather creates handmade, adjustable martingale collars for stylish hounds everywhere.

The first LongDog Leather collars were created late in 2003 for Secret Santa gifts. They were very well received and we decided to open for business. We create each LongDog Leather collar one at a time by passing them back and forth between us to complete all the steps. Sean does the main leatherwork - cutting, stamping, tooling, dyeing, riveting and compiling all the bits and pieces. Maureen does all the sewing and any painting needed on each collar. The boys help out with shipping, by playing gopher, and setup, breakdown and selling at shows.

We both work full time and the boys keep us hopping though, so we aren't the quickest in the business. In addition, Sean plays goalie for a number of ball hockey, box lacrosse and broom ball teams so time is at a premium.

Every item in our Etsy store is ready to ship so waiting shouldn't be too much a of a problem. We do have a whole lot more inventory that never makes it into Etsy though so feel free to ask about different colors, sizes and styles that may be available. Take a look at our regular website to get ideas of types of styles available. http://www.longdogleather.com

In addition to collars we also make some people gear - primarily leather based as that is our main theme (although I do have some left over Swarovski crystal, gemstone and sterling silver greyhound bracelets listed). The leather wristbands are based off of our smallest dog collar pattern and use a super soft bullhide leather. We also have leather vambraces, leather pouches and wide leather belts for Renn Faire or other costumed fun.
