Default In search of tag/thin leather collar

I'm looking for a thin collar (doesn't have to specifically be a tag collar, but would only be used as one) for Nola for either staying home or using it with her bulkier harnesses. I'd like it to be leather ideally, thin (around 1/2" or less), and good quality. Also don't want something that hangs down super far and will trip her!

TIA!

My dogs have had tag collars from http://www.etsy.com/shop/BraidARoo?section_id=6235862 before. They're lightweight, well made and strong. Brooks will be getting one since I'm growing out his neck hair but he still needs to wear tags

I make paracord slips as tag collars that I really like the looks of... Here is Meagan's Harlow modeling one for me. XD

And I know that GatorDog with Carma and Aiden uses leather strips with the same braid to make training tabs- she may be able to make a collar similar for you out of leather? I think that would look really sharp!

I like Paco Collars for that purpose... their cat collars can be made like "regular" collars (without the elastic) and they're very lightweight.

Otherwise, there are braided kangaroo leather tag collars but the one person I know who does a really good job on those isn't doing leatherwork right now.

I have one of her paracord collars that I use as a tag collar for Simi. It's a martingale, which I chose, so it does hang a little, but I like it that way, because it makes it so people can see she DOES have tags without getting too close to her.

I got Quinn a tag collar from Braid-A-Roo about a year and a half ago that I really like! However, I understand she's not making them custom any longer.

I have been on the lookout for a similar product as Quinn's has darkened up like crazy, plus it's stretched (and I got it too big to begin with). However, the shipping quotes I've looked into are all around the $15 range - almost as much as the collar itself. My Braid-A-Roo shipped for $3.

I looked into buying some leather tonight and ordered some cheap colored leather strands to try the same braid out with if you might want a cheap trial tag collar? haha. It's a shame that braid-a-roo doesn't custom anymore... They look like AWESOME collars and I know I can't do anything that nice. haha.

I was going to suggest a thin rolled leather collar but I like the idea of the paracord collar better!
