by ShetlandShake Wonderful collar but quite heavy
I got this for my Sheltie. He is a sturdy guy, not dainty - 15.5 at the shoulder, about 29 lbs. We purchased the 16 inch.
At first I was concerned that the collar would be too big. I don't mean the length but like it is really substantial. It is thick and the hardware is pretty chunky. My dog wears it at the middle hole.
But he wears it very well. Length wise, the 16 inch is perfect. It took about a day for him to adjust as his previous collar was much lighter.
The collar is of superb quality. The leather is rich, the hardware sturdy. It is really solid, no frills look. I can see it lasting for the lifespan of the dog.
It looks beautiful (even through all my dog's hair)
When it first arrives it was REALLY stiff. But as other reviewers mentioned you just kind of have to work it for 10-15 minutes. Bend it and stretch it and rub it and it really softens up. We have been using it for about a month and it is quite soft now.
But I think this is definitely for a more dense medium or large dog just because of its width and weight. It is ALMOST too substantial for mine. I wish it was just a little lighter at this size, that is why I give 4 stars.

These are really nice quality collars. The only problem I ran into (reason only 4 stars), is I purchased 2 18' after reading the measuring directions. and they stretched, necessitating an exchange for the 16"
I thought they would be too wide but they look awesome on our 2 Welsh Corgis and the "O" ring makes it very easy to attach their leashes.

Very nice collar, well made and high quality leather. I also like the D ring as it makes it easy to attach the leash.
I would have given it 5 stars except I purchased two 18' (based on LBean measurements) for our two Welsh Corgies, and they stretched so much I had to exchange for 16'. I think they will hold up for a long time.

This is a serious collar which is also seriously gorgeous. It is not a wimpy little collar, so some owners of smaller dogs might not be happy with its rugged appearance. Personally, I couldn't be happier with it and will probably get another for our other dog as well (He is a medium sized dog, about 58 lbs).
The collar is a bit stiff at first, but with a bit of wear softens up nicely. I've had a Boyt collar before and they are built to last.
My dog is a Lab/Malamute mix and weighs just about 90 lbs. and about 27 inches tall at the shoulder.
