Learn the basics of making a leather dog collar and lead. In this video we use a 7/8 oz. leather to make a simple design that can easily be personalized with stamping or tooling. This same concept can also be used to make more ornate collars and leashes. If you're making a collar for a larger dog, you can jump up to a heavier weight of leather or double and stitch the leather for a heavy-duty collar. We would also recommend using Chicago screws or tubular rivets for larger dogs.
