We just couldn't find collars and leads that we could trust. They needed to be soft and comfortable for our special girls; but also strong and durable for our piece of mind. Nothing out there did it for us... so we made some ourselves!
Risen Collars & Leads are another hand-made product from Pawsome Pooch that combines soft elegant Biothane with hand picked hardware to make a rugged, yet comfortable, product.
There are two options available for hardware:
Stainless Steel - Our strongest and most corrosion resistant hardware is recommended for use with dogs who spent a lot of time at the beach; or are almost always wet. We have Labradors... so stainless is our preferred option.
Neochrome - Strong plated neochrome hardware is just amazingly beautiful to look at. The amazing technicolour sparkles from the plating is incredible; but like all plated products won't hold up to heavy corrosion pressures (think ocean)... it is still a GREAT option though.
All our collars and leads are lovingly hand-made to order using only metal hardware that, in addition to being devilishly attractive, is nickel-free; ensuring that your favourite friend won't be triggered via this common contact allergy... at least not by these products! ;-)
Why we have chosen Biothane?
Biothane is an incredible man-made product that combines many features that are ideal for dog hardware:
Incredible Strength - Our 25mm material (for larger breeds) has a greater than 300kg breaking strain; and the 19mm material (for smaller breeds) have a greater than 200kg breaking strain.
Soft and Comfortable - We have specifically chosen the softest, most luxurious material we could find that holds up to the abuse a happy active dog will throw at it.
Easy Care - Biothane can be wet, dry or anywhere in-between and will not shrink or stretch. To clean... simply rinse with water or wipe with a damp cloth. Couldn't be easier.
Stink Free - Let's face it... there's nothing like the 'delicious' aroma of wet dog and when that seeps into the collar/lead it can be pretty nasty. We can't help with the wet dog, but the collar will stay nice and fresh.
Vegan Friendly - As a man-made material it is a strong and pliable alternative to leather.
