Make Your Own Leather Collar

Our DIY Leash kit is available for those who are looking to build their own dog leash. Since 1990, we have had our Amish harness makers making our leashes, collars, and harnesses from the leather hides we buy ourselves and have tanned to our specifications. We are now offering the pieces needed to build your own leash.

Please note, these leashes do not come assembled. You will have to find your own resources to punch holes into your leather and to safely secure your Chicago screws if you choose. Watch the video below for tips!

*PLEASE NOTE: Our DIY Leashes are not meant for exessive pulling or to restrain a lunging dog. For guaranteed security, please shop our 3/4" Leather Leashes.

Here's a list of the supplies that are needed to build your own leash:

  • 1 - Leather Strap

  • 1 - Snap

We also offer the following hardware if you choose to further customize your leash:

  • O-Rings

  • 1/4" Chicago Screws

  • 3/8" Chicago Screws

We suggest the following strap width/snap size pairings:

  • 3/8” Strap - 1/2” Snap

  • 1/2” Strap - 5/8” Snap

  • 3/4” Strap - 3/4” Snap

The Story Behind Leerburg's Latigo Leather

Description

Our DIY Leash kit is available for those who are looking to build their own dog leash. Since 1990, we have had our Amish harness makers making our leashes, collars, and harnesses from the leather hides we buy ourselves and have tanned to our specifications. We are now offering the pieces needed to build your own leash. We offer 3/8”, 1/2”, and 3/4" width pieces of leather cut to a standard size 84”. There are many ways to build your own leash, 2 of which we have shown you in our DIY Leash video. The first is a weave method which only requires a sharp blade, and the second utilizes Chicago Screws to fasten the leather together. If you want to use Chicago Screws, you will need either a leather hole punch or drill, as well as a screw driver. Additionally thread locking glue (Loctite) is also recommended for added security.

Each leash strap is approximately 7' in length. If you wish to make a slip lead, the 1 1/4" O-Ring allows you to slip the leash snap through.

DIY Leather Collars/Leashes are non-returnable.
