Let me begin by saying that I’m a total sucker for only 2 companies who make outdoors accessories for dogs, and in this post, I’ll be talking to you about one of them: CoLLaR.
Disclaimer: CoLLaR provided us with a free collar & leash set at the Global Pet Expo 2016 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.
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.
I first learned about them in early 2015 when we won one of their Puller toy sets, and came to appreciate their high quality leather collars & leashes shortly thereafter.
I then had the pleasure to visit their booth in the international section of the Global Pet Expo in Orlando, FL earlier this year and met Alex, one of their brand representatives for the US, in person.
Just FYI: I wrote about the leather collar/leash sets we received in early 2015 in my post CoLLaR SOFT Genuine Leather Collection For Your Best Friend, and both sets are still as beautiful AND sturdy as they were more than one year ago, and they’ve been getting used A LOT. #QualityProduct
Adjustable, Multifunctional Leash With 3 Rings- European Style
This multifunctional leash features 3 rings (I attached our poop bag holder to one of them) and 1 snap at each end, making it adjustable to 3 different lengths (4 ft, 4.5 ft, 5.5 ft) – this type of leash is a very common sight in Europe.
I purchased a multifunctional, sturdy leash in my home country Germany as one of Buzz’s first leashes back in 2011. The only thing I don’t love about it is that it’s made of nylon and not soft leather.
Multifunctional Leash, set to 4 ft in length (Shortest)
Multifunctional Leash, set to 4.5 ft in length (Medium)
Multifunctional Leash, set to 5.5 ft in length (Longest)
The adjustable leash can also be worn around the shoulders for hands-free hiking when it’s in medium length configuration, which is my favorite feature!
Besides being great for hiking, it’s also a good option for moms with strollers (and dads, of course!) – the only prerequisite would be that your dog already knows how to heel or is wearing a training collar. You want your stroll with your baby to be a safe one, after all.
Fun, Bright Colors – CoLLaR Glamour
I love that the CoLLaR Glamour Line features collars & leashes in all colors of the rainbow – green, blue, pink, purple, red, yellow, and orange! Perfect to go along with spring & summer’s vibrant color scheme, and also great to add a pop of color during the darker months.
I chose a vibrant yellow tone for Missy’s outgoing personality. It pops beautifully against her black & brown coat and has earned us compliments wherever we go 😉
Both collar & leash come with a small leather butterfly, the Glamour Line’s emblem.
Missy’s yellow collar features a reflective star pattern which also glows in the dark – perfect for walks in low-light visibility (think early morning or late night walks during the summer heat!).
Made of Genuine, Soft Leather
As the vast majority of CoLLaR’s product line (there’s also a Cotton Line & a Metal Line), the Glamour leashes & collars are made of genuine, high-quality leather.
As a dog walker, I can tell you first hand that nothing feels worse than harsh nylon being rubbed across your palms all day long, so whenever I can, I opt for the soft feeling of leather.
As you all know, exercise is an important factor on our journey to being healthy here at K9sOverCoffee. Since we’re out and about a lot, quality accessories are very important to us, and CoLLaR’s Adjustable Glamour Leather Leash fits right into that category.
Not only does the leash look stylish and feel smooth in our hands, it also gives us the option of hands-free walking & hiking. The reflective, glow-in-the-dark star pattern on the Glamour collar ensures our visibility in low light.
Enthusiastically recommended – if you’re a pet retail store, go ahead and contact CoLLaR about getting your hands on these!
Do you own a multifunctional leash? As always, we’d love to hear from you in our comment section!
