    One of my lastest projects, a collar and leash for a wolfhound. I'm still learning to do leather hand-carving but i was very happy with the result and it is fun to do!
    anyone interrested for a custom collar can go on my web site (see my signature)

    Wow! Love it! (And I'd probably hang it up rather than use it on the dogs. Lol!)

    thank you! What us a GSD...german sheperd?! i can tell from your signature...anything can be carved, just need the practice before to go to final work. I guess some dogs are easier than other too...

    This collar is absolutly usable! Sure it is best to use only for walking if your dog love to scratch himself lol! but still, is it very strong.

    thank you all for the nice comments. Sure in can do a carved collar for any breed, i can make the style to fit the breed or the personnality of the dog. Email me privately for any info at info@mjleatherwork.com
    Collar can be simple layer of leather too, this way it is less expensive, the one here is all lined with english pigskin and hand-stitched.

    I'm buying that adjustable leash with my Christmas bonus!

    Do you think you could do an Australian Shepherd? Or the head...which ever would be easier for you.
