Default Toy Dog Ribbon Collars

So, there's a leather collar thread but Tango has super sensitive skin so I'm looking for a nice, light, and possibly soft ribbon collar for him. Show me your favorite places to get ribbon collars that are "5/8 or smaller!

For sensitive skin, I go with White Pine. Also, UpCountry has some cute 5/8" collars... we use them in obedience all the time.

Gavroche has really sensitive skin and the only collar I've found that works for him so far is his EL leather lined in suede. I got him a satin-lined Collar Mania ribbon collar and it was awful on his neck - it was sewn with some sort of fishing line type thread (?) and the pokey bits tore him up pretty good.

I have yet to find ribbon collars that I really like - they all seem to have a nylon base, which is pretty harsh. Maybe a fabric collar would work well? Still no help there because I don't know of any fabric collars I really like either lol, mostly because I stopped looking.

How about braided kangaroo? I think Braid-a-Roo charges around $1.50 per inch, so wouldn't be too bad for his size. That's for a tag collar that slips over the head, not sure what options they have for regular collars.

I agree that a braided kangaroo or really soft rolled leather is likely going to be less 'harsh' on most necks than nylon.

I love Maeve, she's GREAT - her work is second to none in the braided kangaroo business.

There's a $15 minimum as well as the inch price for those who care. She does have red but now I need to figure out how to measure the collar so it will go over his bulbous head but not be too big around his neck.

So, it's looking like we'll be going with 3 strands red, 1 strand gold, and a brass ring... Tango is going to be sexy beast at work! Now to get a small and matching tag.
