what is

BioThane?

BioThane® is a coated webbing, with waterproof, stink proof, non stretch, colour fast & wipe clean benefits! We've chosen to exclusively use genuine BioThane® in all our waterproof collars and leads. It has been well tested for durability, strength, and colour fastness by the manufacturers.

 

The strength comes from the polyester webbing core, whilst the thin TPU coating gives waterproofing, whilst also making it stink-proof and easy to clean in your kitchen sink. BioThane® is a great cruelty free alternative to leather as it offers a similar look plus, it doesn't stretch and has the added benefits above.

 We've chosen our favourite colours which all look great with our range of metal hardware. Whatever combination you choose; you & your dog can walk & train in your own style.

Your choices

 We regularly make up different sizes, styles and colour combinations of our BioThane® products. This gives you quite a range of choice, numbered below! If we don't have what you want in stock, you can order it through our custom collar or lead listings, or get in touch with us.

 

There's no extra charge, but made to order items come with a slightly longer wait time. If you want a preview of a colour combination - just get in touch! We'll send over a quick photo of a previous item or the components side by side from our garden workshop! 

 

We are happy to work with you if you have a specific requirement or set up in mind.

WHICH WIDTH SHOULD I GET?
 

We think 20 mm wide BioThane is suited for collars for small/very small dogs, or as tag holders for larger dogs.

25 mm wide Biothane collars would be suited as a chunkier style on small dogs, and as a standard collar for small dogs and up.

If you want a X-small/Small collar in 25 mm BioThane please consider our ‘small sighthound’ style, we make these collars in a slightly different way to allow a tighter curve for smaller necks.

Our 25 mm BioThane collars slightly heavier, so for very small dogs we’d recommend the 20 mm width. Our adjustable collars and sports collars are lighter than our other styles with a quick release buckle, if that is a concern. 

HOW DO I MEASURE MY DOGS NECK

You should be able to fit two fingers underneath your dog’s collar when it’s on - just to make sure it's not too tight.
To measure you can do one of a few things.

  1. Hold a fabric tape round your dog’s neck - in the fit you want the collar,  and let us know in cm.
     

  2. Take a bit of string/ribbon and place around your dog’s neck with the fit you want, either hold/mark the length or cut to length and measure laid out flat.
     

  3. Measure your dog’s existing (well fitting) collar, making sure to NOT measure any overlap the collar may have when around your dog's neck.

 

Then: Pick the most suited range from our sizes  - we like choosing a value in the middle of a size’s range, then you have room to go larger and smaller when needed.

Adjustable collar

A standard and traditional dog collar design and suitable for most activities.

Traditional prong buckle, offering small adjustments over a 10 cm range. You may wish to use the collar tighter for walking for added security, and looser if you walk on a harness or use as a tag holder. Plus it gives the bonus of adjustment if your dog is still growing or if their weight fluctuates. We can easily add more holes giving more size range if you like.

This style gives a classic collar look - but with modern, cruelty-free materials that will last.

Shop custom colour designs

double-buckle collar

An innovative design combining adjustment

with an easy on & off buckle.

The best of both worlds; an adjustable buckle (tighter fit for walks, looser for the house), and a quick release buckle for easy on & off! You can also change the size of the collar when it’s off the dog, so for nervous dogs fitting is a breeze.

 

This style looks great with all the the metal hardware and we think sets itself aside from many other collar styles.

Shop custom colour designs

Simple, Striking, Easy.

This style is one of our favourites and looks the most simple and striking. It has one quick release clip buckle and made to your size request. You can either measure your dogs current properly fitting collar, or measure their neck with a two finger space underneath the measuring tape.

With this style you can put it on and only take off to wipe clean.

If you have a tiny dog and want a lightweight collar, perhaps consider our sports collar or standard adjustable collar.

fixed length collar

Sports buckle

collar

Simple & lightweight

This collar style is similar to our fixed length collar design but uses a tough and firm, quick release acetal clip buckle, rather than a metal clip. We make this collar to your size, either give us you current collar measurement if you like the fit, or measure you dogs neck with two fingers underneath the measuring tape.

This collar is lightweight, tough, and just needs a wipe down to clean if (when) it gets covered in gunk on adventures!!

Order your sports buckle collar

Small

sighthound

collar

Made for tiny tiny necks.

For tiny necks that want a wider collar band we use 25 mm BioThane and construct a collar similar to our standard adjustable collar. However, it is made slightly differently to better fit a tighter curve. It offers slightly less size adjustment range (but holes are closer together) and comes without a collar loop to keep it as simple and lightweight as possible (and it's not needed).

As we make these to order and don't keep any in stock we can make the holes at any point you like.

Order your sighthound collar

Larger sighthound collar

Designed for larger, delicate necks.

For larger necks we make a Greyhound style collar using a black 50 mm wide strip of BioThane and a 25 mm buckle fastening.  The wide band gives comfort when walking, and the 25 mm buckle gives less bulk at the fastening. We make these to order only, and if you have a smaller sighthound but prefer this option then we can make our Greyhound collar using a 30 mm strip and a 20 mm buckle for something more appropriate.

1m standard

lead

Traditional 1m lead for daily walks.

Our standard leads are 1 m long & made with 25mm wide BioThane. It is comfy & practical in all weathers. Our design includes a D-ring on the handle (so you can clip in treat bags, lights, keys; whatever you want!)

If you have a smaller dog and want a narrower/lighter lead with a smaller lead clip, you may want to try our 20 mm wide BioThane in our standard lead style or, think about our training leads.

2m Training

lead

A double ended lead, perfect for pavements, parks & precarious paths.

Our training leads are made from 20 mm wide genuine BioThane® & measure 2 m long end to end. It’s just wide enough to stop painful tugs but thin enough to stop bulkiness. They have fast become our favourite leads for day to day use!

The lead is double ended with a D-ring 1/3 of the way down to clip into. This gives you 3 lengths, or 4 if you use a walking belt.

We can add on a floating O-ring or more D rings for more length options. If you want something longer you may like our long leads with removeable handles.

long leads

With removable handles

Our newest lead design came from a brainstorm to try get many functions into one lead. Our long leads start at 3 m long (3.5 and 4 m also available) and are double ended with 2 or 3 D-rings along the length. They also come with a removable handle meaning you can clip into the lead on the D-ring closest to dog (you pick where this is) and use a s standard lead for close walking, or use at the fullest length and clip the lead back to itself for a 'long line' style lead.

long line

5 m long lines with optional grab handles

Long lines starting at 5 m (£3.50 per extra m) and are made from 20 mm wide BioThane. Wide enough to stop painful tugs but thin enough so its not too bulky. They can be a great tool for training recall or for keeping your dog safe around livestock. As Biothane doesn't pick up gravel like standard webbing and i waterproof, it's a far better material for long lines in our opinion.

We can also add removeable handles and grab handles to our long lines.
