Designed for medium, large, extra large and giant dogs, Dean & Tyler's classic supple leather pieces are simply decorated with fine leather that will develop a distressed vintage look over time and retain durability.
No shortcuts are taken in the preparation of this beautiful leather. It is prepared using a combination tanning process from century-old tanneries in the Netherlands and UK. First, they are tanned with a Chrome Salt solution to make the leather flexible and more resistant to heat and scratching. Then, the leather is vegetable tanned to make it firmer and more water-resistant.
Over the years, these leather collars will become softer, not weaker, and will develop a distressed vintage look. Wax is brushed on the edges of each collar to prevent fraying, and give it a smooth finish. Similarly, all stitching is made of waxed or neoprene thread. With normal usage (no extreme chewing), you may expect your leather to last for at least a decade.
