from our workshop
Our lifelong love of dogs lead us to creating beautiful collars and leads for dogs of all sizes and shapes.
Breed specific is our specialty. Whippets, greyhounds and lurchers require a different type of collar than
retrievers or hounds due to their long, thin-skinned necks. Working or hunting dogs need different types
of leads than show dogs for control or easy release. Police dogs require many different leads to adjust to
tracking or patrol duties. At Taylor Made Too Saddlery, we make the lead or collar that is suitable for
your dog and your activities. We offer a few standard items but pride ourselves on creating the exact
item you want for your dog. We can customize with contrasting thread colour, metal spots or
whatever you can think of!
Simple leather collar
Made of single thickness, vegetable-tanned bridle leather in Black or Brown that has been creased, edged, dyed and burnished by hand. Sewn in buckle and dee made of solid brass or stainless steel complete the look.

Large size is 3/4″ or 1″ wide, any length – $35.00
Padded leather collar
A padded lining of soft leather in a your choice of a complimentary colour is folded and sewn to our Simple leather collar.

Shaped Whippet, Greyhound or Lurcher Collar – $40.00
Wide at the front and narrow at the back, the contoured shape of this type of collar prevents injury to these sight hounds’ delicate necks. Made of single thickness, supple, vegetable-tanned bridle leather in Black or Brown that has been creased, edged, dyed and burnished by hand. Your choice of solid brass or stainless steel buckle and dee. Additional options like padded leather or sheepskin are available at extra cost.
Add a custom name plate to any of these collars for $10.00
Training Lead – $40
Supple vegetable-tanned bridle leather feels great in your hand and is very strong. In Black or Brown these leads are creased, edge-dyed and burnished by hand. Complete with sewn-in handle and bolt snap of either solid brass or stainless steel. 6′ long in either 5/8″ or 3/4″ width.
Hand Lead – $20
When you need to keep your dog close at heel, this is the lead to use. Same craftsmanship and materials as the Training Lead but only 2′ long or less in either 5/8″ or 3/4″ width. Black or Brown.
Martingale Style Collar – $45
Much safer and kinder on the dog’s neck but with the same tightening action as a choke chain. Made of double thickness bridle leather and stainless steel hardware. Collar should be adjusted so that the chain lies loose when not needed but exerts pressure when pulled. Please specify Black or Brown.
French Martingale Lead & Collar Combo – $80
This is a leash and collar all in one. Great for kind control of a medium or large size dog. The collar is fitted just shy of the smallest part of your dog’s neck. The padded throat piece has limited choke action and the leather keeper slides tight to prevent slip outs or loose for easy removal. The leash measures 5’long in widths of 5/8″ or 3/4″. In Black or Brown bridle leather with your choice of a complimentary colour soft leather folded and sewn into the throat piece. Solid Brass or Stainless Steel dees.
