Making a Simple Leather Dog Collar and Lead

For a list of tools and materials used in this video click here.

In today’s video, Chuck shows how to make a simple leather dog collar and lead using 7/8 oz. leather. You can use these same basic steps to create a more intricate set or add personalization with stamping and tooling. You can even add some spots or spikes for an edgier look. If you’re wanting to make a more heavy-duty collar for a larger dog, you can use a heavier weight leather or add a liner. We would also recommend using Chicago screws or tubular rivets for larger collars as this will give the collar added strength.

  1. I’m involved in Search and rescue. I have a tracking hound and we hunt for missing people. What weight leather should I use to make her a harness?

    1. Hi Jessica,
      We recommend downloading and saving the file. Open up the downloaded file and you’ll want to print it as “Actual size”.

  2. Just watched and your video made this dog collar so much easier than the kit I got from Tandy. I had to take the Tandy kit apart after I made it and start over because I didn’t like the way it came out. Thank you Chuck.
