Having owned and bred Border Terriers for many years, I feel like I know enough to make a proper terrier collar and good strong lead. A tough, hardwearing and easy to maintain terrier collar makes sense, so I use high quality leather that can be washed in cold water, dried, oiled and put straight back on the dog. I then add a quality brass buckle and fittings so nothing rusts after it has been soaked in ditch water or covered in mud. The end result is a proper old fashioned dog collar that will last for years.
I think that is what you are looking for!
