The overall quality of the product was good. I was very impressed with the leather and turn around time. However, when I received my collar it was too large. At first the seller was very cooperative and willing to send out another collar for half the cost. Before the collar was shipped though I received an email asking if i was sure about the size and to my knowledge I was, but it is obvious to me that she thought differently or she would not be questioning this. She shipped the collar and after receiving it i realized it was too large. After a few emails back and forth ( i was not ecstatic about having to pay for another collar) i questioned what would have happened had i known prior to the shipment that the collar was too big. She responded and explained quality and profit and i agreed to pay for the second collar and wanted to change colors. I emailed her on August 10 again on August 22 and for the last time on August 25 and have had no response. Very displeased with the service and upset that i spent $40 on a collar my dog will never be able to wear.

Absolutely gorgeous workmanship. All of Mixie's items are of a better quality than any I could find in a store, even the most high-end. This collar is absolutely awesome -- a faithful and fantastic reproduction of a pretty elaborate and crazy drawing -- and very functional as well! Truly custom gear in fantastic quality.

Beautifully done work. Leather is thick, yet pliable. Quality products that should last for years and years and years.

Our goals at RDL are to make the kind of stuff we, personally, like to buy: namely simple, sturdy gear from the best quality materials we can find... gear that will last a lifetime with minimal care. We don't buy junk ourselves and we don't put it out into the world, either. We'll happily repair or replace hardware on all gear for a lifetime (yours or ours, whichever comes first, I suppose), as long as the original strap stays intact--there's only so much we can do to fix chewing damage from puppy indiscretions ;0).

Raw Dog Leather products are handmade in Eugene, Oregon. Our gear is crafted with premium quality, top-grain, veg-tan latigo leather, finished with butter-soft deer suede and top quality hardware. Each piece is individually handcrafted every step of the way, from the cut and bevel, to the stitching, riveting, and decorative elements. Minor variations in surface finish, width, stitching, and color are indications of this individual handling--no two pieces will ever be exactly alike.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Money Order
  • Check
  • Other Method
We accept all forms of payment including PayPal. We accept personal checks and money orders, but will hold shipment until funds clear. You are also welcome to give us a call to arrange Visa, MasterCard, AmEx, or Discover payments through our on-site terminal.
We happily ship anywhere in the world. We generally prefer USPS Priority Mail service for shipping to the US, Canada, and Mexico. International orders will be shipped via the most expeditious and cost-effective method, typically USPS Global Priority or Express. I'm happy to ship via any method you prefer, but these seem to consistently be the quickest methods with substantially lower costs than the alternatives. Global Express Guaranteed is very pricey, but is the only guaranteed delivery method for international shipping. If you choose a lower-cost shipping option without a tracking guarantee, we are happy to accommodate the request but I and the USPS cannot guarantee delivery once the package leaves the US mail stream.
I generally add delivery confirmation, but you're welcome to request insurance, expedited shipping, or tracking, for additional costs.
Refunds and Exchanges
A minimum 50% deposit is required to begin production of all custom work. Customers who purchase custom gear will receive a set of digital photographs of their gear for approval upon completion and prior to shipping. If any changes or corrections are necessary, they can be made at that time. If you receive your photos and change your mind about the piece entirely, you're under no obligation to purchase it but your 50% deposit is non-refundable and the item will be listed for public sale.

We are tremendously proud of having built a worldwide business entirely on word-of-mouth advertising. We will listen extremely carefully to your requests, we will ask questions and work closely with you, and will do our very best to ensure that your gear accurately reflects your mind's eye. As such, we will not ship a piece of custom-crafted gear without your prior visual approval, so please keep an eye out for the photos!

If you receive your item and wish to return or exchange it, please contact us promptly with the request and reason. We'll do our best to rectify the situation, we promise. Because of the very great time investment involved, under no circumstances will we give cash refunds for custom gear. We'll happily offer any help or advice you need in choosing your perfect gear, but please remember that you are ultimately responsible for choosing the most appropriate gear and features for your situation.
Additional policies and FAQs
We welcome custom listings and invite you to call or email us with your ideas and requests.

Raw Dog Leather Gear is currently found in a number of retail locations across the country. If you're a retailer interested in carrying RDL gear, please call us for more information and a price list.

Generally speaking, we are happy to do wholesale trade with brick-and-mortar businesses which:
-Are locally owned by individuals.
-Align with our general philosophies of business and customer service, and with whom we can be proud of doing business.
-Do not sell or foster the sale on-site of puppies and kittens.

We own purebred dogs and are staunch supporters and advocates of careful hobby-breeding for working purposes, including companionship. We vehemently oppose the commercial breeding of dogs and cats, and the sale of dogs and cats through commercial locations for a variety of reasons. We're laid back about a lot of things, but this is a non-negotiable. We are, of course, tickled about stores that support and foster rescue or shelter adoption efforts!

We don't do consignment sales. We are open to trade offers, but don't always accept.

Give us a call at 541.520.5713, or drop us a note at: mixie [!at] rawdogleather.com for any other information!
