5 reasons for providing your Staffie with a legendary collar
1) 99 YEARS – LEATHER COLLARS, LEADS AND ACCESSORIES THAT ARE DURABLE
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.
2) VARIED LEATHER OF MANY COLOURS – EACH PIECE IS AN ORIGINAL
As saddlers make collars and accessories by hand, usually nothing but originals reach the hands of their customers from their workshops. In handwork, there is no problem using many types and colours of leather.
Choose a colour combination of leather and stitching for your Staffie in a collar, harness or lead. For example, black or brown is suitable for males. Red or violet is fitting for stylish females.
Saddlers will also attach a dog tag to your collar – bearing the name of your Staffie and your telephone number, in case your pet gets lost. Each collar is an original, lasts for many years and will always look good.
Saddlers finish Slade Czech products with the legendary sign of the breed, called the Staffordshire Knot. What does the Staffordshire Knot signify? Find out in the article on the origin of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
3) PRODUCTS MADE OF GENUINE LEATHER ARE TIMELESS
Leather products will always be fashionable and popular. Cavemen wore fur, modern ladies, gentlemen and dog champions wear leather products. Your four-legged friend in a leather collar will look like Sir Fashiondog or Lady Fashionbitch.
4) ACCURATELY TAILORED, FIT LIKE A GLOVE
Forget about universal dimensions and basic sizes. It depends on what fits your Staffie best, and not what is economically more profitable for the seller.
Have a classic collar or chainslip collar tailor-made for your dog. If he or she prefers a harness, buy leading reins exactly fitting the body.
The same applies to the lead. Choose a short, long or retractable lead. Do you enter your Staffie in shows? Buy him or her a show collar, made of round or cut leather, in entire leather or chain versions.
5) MATCHING OUTFITS
Match your outfit to that of your four-legged friend. Wear a leather bracelet with metal finish and magnetic or mechanical fastening on your wrist. Put a leather keyring / purse in your pocket. Present your friends with leather coasters.
Everything, of course, in Staffordshire style – in the same colour as the accessories worn by your Staffie.
So you have already found 5 reasons for choosing leather accessories. Now would you prefer accessories made of paper, or quality products made of genuine cowhide with a lifetime guarantee?
