I first heard of the CoLLaR company in February of this year when coming across their PULLER toy product review on MyDogLikes.com. I entered their giveaway and ended up being one of the 3 lucky winners 🙂 The pups have been having lots of fun with the PULLER rings, and I’ve incorporated them in our training routine.
Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post ~ K9sOverCoffee received two collar & leash sets from CoLLaR in return for an honest review. Here on K9sOverCoffee, I only share information I feel is relevant to my readers & always provide 100% honest reviews. CoLLaR is not responsible for the content of this blog post.
The CoLLaR Company
CoLLaR is a Ukrainian based wholesale company who has been making quality pet products since 1995. Their pet products are sold in 40 countries on all continents.
CoLLaR didn’t disappoint when their 2 sets of leather collars & leashes arrived in our mailbox.
By the way: The leather goods were packed & shipped in CoLLaR’s signature bag (you can see it in the first picture). As it served two purposes at once (packaging & shipping material), it was gentle on the environment, which is a huge bonus in our book!
Why Leather Leashes?
I first came to appreciate the comfort of leather leashes when taking my Basic Obedience Class with the pups back in 2013.
My trainer Rhonda was using a leather leash, and shared that she’s been using nothing but leather throughout her decades of teaching obedience classes because of how smooth & gentle it felt in her hands, and because of its durability.
She invited all of the class participants to feel & use her extra leather leashes throughout our class. I believe we all bought the leather leashes from her that night…smart move on her part, and certainly one I didn’t regret for one second!
Beauty, Quality, & Comfort In One Design!
Lily from CoLLaR sent us two different designs which reflect our pups’ respective gender beautifully:
Missy received the CoLLaR SOFT Brilliance set (size medium for her 54 lbs), featuring a soft, high quality leather collar with two sets of 12 rhinestones on each side of the metal tag holder. Her Brilliance Leash matches the collar perfectly as it also features rhinestones (26, to be exact)!
Buzz’s CoLLaR SOFT leash & round collar set doesn’t feature rhinestone decorations, but a decorative, classy looking feathered stitching (size large for his 74 lbs).
Both leashes are 4′ long. Missy’s Brilliance Leash is 0.75″ wide and 1/4″ thick. Buzz’s leash is 0.5″ in diameter. Both collars & leashes are stamped with the CoLLaR logo.
Genuine, Soft Leather
The leather already feels amazingly soft, and will only get softer with usage & time ~ one of the key features of leather products!
Buzz’s leash is even softer than Missy’s ~ it truly feels like a soft feather in your hand! What a surprisingly luxurious feeling!
Side note: Both CoLLaR leashes are made of a softer leather than the ones I purchased in my obedience class.
Reliable Hardware & Durable Design
Despite the softness of the leather, the collars & leashes still feel sturdy ~ after all, an important aspect to consider when choosing walking & training equipment for larger dogs (any dogs, really, but particularly true for larger & stronger breeds).
The durable design of the leash interior is made possible by a nylon cord, which is wrapped with the amazingly soft leather.
These leather collars & leashes can be used in any type of weather ~ to include rain ~ but you should apply a leather conditioner from time to time to keep them looking their best.
Round Leather Collar Ideal For Long-Haired Dogs
Buzz’s smooth wash-n-wear coat makes choosing his accessories an easy task ~ all you long-haired dog parents might, however, be interested in the fact that the round leather collar is ideal for long-haired dogs, as it’s designed not to damage a dog’s long hair.
Great Length For Control During Walks
4-6′ are an ideal leash length for great control over your dog on walks. The CoLLaR leashes fit this criterion perfectly!
–>I don’t tolerate leash pulling and taught the pups to walk politely on leash ~ 4-6′ long leashes make polite leash training so much easier than longer leads, let alone using retractable ones.
Not only do the CoLLaR SOFT leashes feel amazingly soft & look stylish on our pups, they are also made to last & fit our training criteria. Our pack give our new leashes & collars 8 enthusiastic paws up!
P.S. Even if you’re not a retailer, you can still order their products from the collar.ua website.
