Two of my American bull dogs look tough, but have such delicate skin it is severly abraded and irritated by most collars. These collars are comfortable, well constructed, and outfitted with handsome sturdy hardware. The fine quality leather is soft and supple and the beautiful metallic padding protects the dogs' necks and chests.These collars are not only fashionable but are strong enough for large pit breeds (I chose brown leather with copper padding and black with bright pink padding) My dogs are comfortable, happy, and secured. I also found your prices the most affordable on the internet. I plan to buy more.
