Why show your dog in an original Staffie leather collar?

Why show your dog in an original Staffie leather collar?

Dog Shows have a long tradition. Since 1935, when Joe Dunn established the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club, breeders have exhibited their Staffies in traditional collars. Why? Because of their characteristic feature – the pretzel or knot. For this reason, Staffie collars differ from the collars of other breeds.


The History of Dog Collars

The History of Dog Collars

It is difficult to say who the first person was to tie a rope around a dog’s neck and attempt to lead him like a horse or a camel. However, DNA analysis has proved that the first domesticated dog breeds already accompanied European hunters 32 000 years ago.


THE FIRST STAFFIE BREEDERS' CLUB AND OFFICIAL RECOGNITION 80 YEARS AGO

SBT History: Staffordshire Bull Terrier – from Fearless Fighter to Best Friend

In the 18th century, people enjoyed watching dog fights which were legal until 1835. Breeders bred Bulldogs, who were the forerunners of Staffies, for bloody fights with bulls and bears, and for dog fights, as well as for the extermination of sewer rats. But they never used any of these dogs against humans.


Collar Rescue Story

The Old Leather Collar Rescue Story

Like every dog, also I have my favourite leather collar, I wear it for many years …
However, everyday rolling in a grass, digging in a dirt and occasional swimming in a creek left the consequences – I look like a dog homeless wearing it :)
Fortunately, my collar is the Slade Czech


Engraved Metal Dog Tags and Collars

Engraved Metal Dog Tags and Collars

Do not fall prey to the illusion that your dog will definitely never run away. It does not even have to be the dog’s fault. For example, he could get lost in a crowd. He could start chasing a hare across the field or, just for once in his lifetime, taste freedom by crawling under the damn fence. What then? You run around the streets, call your dog’s name, drive around the shelters and post up posters with his photo on pillars. And it gets worse by the day. Because your beloved barking pet is missing. You try to calm yourself with the assurance that he is surely in good hands, but somehow you suspect that much more disastrous scenarios are also possible.

How to clean a leather collar and lead

How to clean a leather collar and lead

Leather is actually very similar to human skin. Even the leather of a collar or lead needs to breathe. At the same time, it must be sufficiently moisturised to avoid drying and cracking. The following instructions are generally suitable for cleaning smooth leather – coats, saddles, sofas and flat shoes.

From a darkened "Hole" to a new workshop

Imagine the scene: a dim dark cell, almost like a cellar in a horror movie. Literally a "Hole"Bang! Bang! Crash! In the lamplight glow, the pounding of saddlers' tools can be heard. "Grrr! You woke me up again!" a sleepy Staffie growls in the corner.


5 reasons for providing your Staffie with a legendary collar

5 reasons for providing your Staffie with a legendary collar

The market is full of countless manufacturers of dog collars. But not all collars and accessories are of a quality which will last your pet for a long time. They are usually paper thin and plastic covered.
Nevertheless, meticulous saddlers still use genuine cowhide, brass fittings and strong waxed thread. They work by hand. Therefore, you get a 99-year guarantee against material defects and sewing for all Slade Czech products. And your dogs will inherit the collar from generation to generation.

Pour les chiens

„Ouah, Ken, où as-tu trouvé ces beaux trucs?“ Une belle Staffordshire Bull Terrier m'a posé la question il y a quelques jours. Depuis que je suis si bien habillé, les femelles sont régulièrement à mes pieds. Le collier fait à la main, en cuir de vachette qui sent très bon, avec une ferrure brillante et décoré par un nœud du Staffordshire attire l’attention.

Les colliersles laisses et les harnais pour chiens sont également fabriqués par les ouvriers bourreliers de Slade Czech en cuir aux joyeux coloris pour les dames canines. Choisis une plaque d’identification canine comme accessoire. Fais ton choix.

Pour les hommes

Où est mon collier? Je me demande. Ah oui mon maître me l’a pris et le porte à la place de son bracelet. Une fois de plus ! Alors j’ai demandé aux maîtres bourreliers d’inventer des accessoires en cuir également pour les humains. Regarde les bracelets à mettre aux poignées en vachette en couleur, des porte-clés et des pendentifs de clés avec une bonne odeur, des portefeuilles en cuir, des sous-verres. Tout cela dans le style Staffordshire. Fais ton choix.
