Hi, I'm looking for new dog collars, Nell wears a harness so the collar is not used for dog walking just to contain her info. Is there any advantage to leather and do they pong less in the long run? The webbing ones can look pretty but get grubby and then any pattern comes off.
So is leather better?
Should I go for plain webbing and wash frequently?
I'd prefer to support a good cause, so who does good collars for a doggy charity?

If washability is important then you might want to have a look at biothane collars. It's a coated webbing. Bright colours, durable, strong and very washable!

They look ideal, I've ordered one off a well know auction site (and made a donation to Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue, Nell's rescue, at the same time). Thanks

Ruffwear do some "stink proof" collars if that's an issue - pricey but they are good quality (I don't have the collars but the Ruffwear harnesses I've got are around 7-8 years old now and still fantastic condition)

Claire of http://www.chrysalis-k9.co.uk/shop/ makes great collars in all colours and sizes . I would think leather would be just as bad as webbing at staying soggy.

I use a part fleece, part webbing collar, mostly for my dog's comfort, but it also goes through the washing machine and dries in a few hours.

It is s a bit like the one here https://www.dog-games-shop.co.uk/fleece-lin...-black-red.html

mine have Spiffy Dog Collars.

Very good quality. I have had them for several years and they still look like new. My dogs go swimming but the collars are none the worse for it.
