Looking at some CM fabrics, and can't decide.

Anyone wanna vote for Jackson's next collar? Now, some of these... I'm not sure how good they'd look on a 3/4 collar sooo.. I'll have to talk to the collar maker about it.







I think I'm going to get him the No Buckle Adjustable Slide Collar so there's no bulky buckles, either, but he still has the 3/4" width.

Ok I envy these... like a LOT. I really want a leather lead. Where did you get these ones?

I like the middle one the best. The first one is awesome but I don't think it would be suitable for a 3/4" collar.

Oh and since we're counting leashes as well ... I have 2 lol. I keep losing them.

I got one of the three brown latigo multifunction leashes when I interned at Guide Dogs for the Blind and then bought two more when I visited their campus a few years ago. This doesn't, however, mean you can't get one yourself because they sell them online for an AWESOME price! You really can't beat $14 for a sturdy leash that breaks in nicely and benefits a great cause.

The black multifunction is a true euro leash - I bought it in Prague on a study abroad trip.

The 6' brown latigo lead is from http://www.texasleash.com/.

The 2' brown latigo traffic leash is from a local place in my hometown that is now out of business.

Plus the hardware is a tad large too and getting the tags on/off is a pain.

So anyways... thinking about this one from Paco:

Le Cheat - Leather Cat Collar - Paco Collars
What do you think for Jackson?

Paco's (and a few other leather cat collar makers) use elastic to make their leather collars more safe to be worn for cats.

I had that style of cat collar for my mom's cat. It's cute but narrow for a dog. I don't know that it'll show up well on Jackson. You might want to see if they can make it a hair wider for him, like, 5/8" or 3/4". Heck, 1/2" might even be wide enough.
That one there is only 3/8" which is perfect for small cats.
I really really want one of those Paco cat collars for my cat! Except probably in burgundy/brown with silver hardware. I'm the fence about the elastic option though. Oh well the odds that I'll have the $$ to spend on that are slim, so no worries I guess!

Another place for nice leather leads at a very reasonable price is www.bridgeportquipment.com

I just ordered my CM collar as a no buckle adjustable slide collar.

I've actually heard terrible things about the quality of their leather. I don't have any myself so I can't tell you first-hand.

I do love OnLead leashes though, and they are SUPER cheap and free shipping. On Lead I have a euro leash from them and a regular 6ft leash

The 2' brown latigo traffic leash is from a local place in my hometown that is now out of business.

The link didn't work for the Guidedog place, and I checked in equipment and they didn't have any listed.

I *think* the Guidedog leashes are from J & J Dog Supplies - Dog Training equipment for Dog Obedience, Dog Agility, Dog Flyball, and more. I was at one of our local shows and they had several of the service dog type leads on a clearance rack for insanely cheap( and J&J already has some pretty insanely cheap prices. I asked Robb, the guy running the J&J booth why they were so cheap. He said that they we mistakes because they had brass snaps and the Guidedog place just wanted all chrome. Even if they aren't, J&J makes an almost identical leash. Very high quality and very decent prices.

Link worked for me just fine. J&J does sell the same leash if I recall correctly, but proceeds don't go to GDB.

Hrm I checked the link today and it worked for me as well. :\ J&J does sell a very similar leash with the options for chrome or brass fixtures and for a few $$ more.
