All our handmade collars, leads and harnesses made by Dottie's are made using the highest quality fastenings to ensure you receive a quality handmade item.
We have a selection of colours available for our plain and ribbon items made using 13mm webbing, which are suitable for kittens, cats, puppies and small dogs. These can be personalised with a ribbon to add colour and patterns to your pets collars, leads and harnesses.
For kitten and cat collars, (13mm webbing) we use quick snap release side release buckles, so if they get caught in a bush for example the collar will break to allow your kitten/cat to move free. These collars come with a welded D-ring with an attached matching bell (if possible). If you would prefer a standard side release buckle without the security option of the break free, just let us know when you order.
For puppies and small dogs using the 13mm webbing, come with a standard side release buckle which will not break free and a welded D-Ring. We also have the option to change the fastening on the collar to a half check chain or buckle which you can select on checkout. The leads for puppies and small dogs made on 13mm webbing we use heavy duty trigger hooks.
For puppies and small dogs using the 16mm webbing, come with a standard side release buckle which will not break free and a welded D-Ring. We also have the option to change the fastening on the collar to a half check chain or buckle which you can select on checkout. The leads for puppies and small dogs made on 16mm webbing we use heavy duty trigger hooks.
We have a large selection of cushioned webbing colours available in 19mm and 25mm for all sizes dogs with a range of fastenings.
Our 19mm and 25mm cushioned webbing collars, leads and harnesses use metal nickel plated cast iron sliders, welded D-Rings and O-rings to ensure they do not break if they are tugged on by your pet, along with heavy duty trigger hooks for leads. The cushioned webbing is thick but soft webbing with a strong weave.
Our fabric collars, leads and harnesses are available in both 19mm, 25mm and 40mm widths and use a polypropylene webbing, which is a strong webbing with a tight weave, but is not as thick or soft, to allow us to place the fabric on your item which will make the collar softer for your dog to wear. We use the same high quality thick D-rings and O-Rings along with the metal nickel plated cast iron sliders and fastenings.
We do not use plastic sliders on 19mm, 25mm or 40mm webbing collars and harnesses, as these can break under pressure.
We only use strong thread and ensure we stitch several times over one area to ensure the item will not fall apart with wear and tear.
For padding we use a quality, no pill polar fleece.
