Product Review: Isle of Dogs Padded Leather Collar

Isle of Dogs makes lovely padded leather collars, in addition to super-fancy shampoos and tasty biscuits. These are thick, heavy, high-quality stitched leather with contrasting padding for a really gorgeous piece. Each comes lovingly packaged in an Isle of Dogs box. They are available in six colors and eight sizes to fit dogs with 10-24" necks, give or take about an inch and a half.

Look at how pretty this collar is! It's even stamped with "Isle of Dogs" like an actual quality piece of leather. I was so pleased when it arrived, as for $25 I wasn't expecting something quite this nice.

I was once a horse-crazy little girl, and then a horse-crazy teenager, and then a young adult with a horse. I've always loved tack the same way I love dog gear. Some of my favorite collars are equestrian-inspired, and this one definitely fits with that theme. 

Pros: Thick, sturdy, well-made. Has a maker's mark. Nice solid stainless steel hardware. Garment leather padding is nice on sensitive skin and delicate coats.

Cons: Dogs aren't allowed to wear non-quick-release buckle collars at daycare where I work.

Bottom Line: I ordered a size 16, and it fits both Sisci and Brisbane.
