Logical Leather Padded Dog Collar- My Personal Review
Manufacturer– MKT Products
Where to buy– Amazon.com
Price– $9.99 – $22.99
My Rank– 4.5/5
For me, it’s never been particularly easy to find good quality collars for my dogs. I’ve spent hours and hours online searching but never buying. The really good collars can be too expensive while the cheap ones shred, fall apart, or just break and fall off.
I did eventually buy 2 hand-made collars off Etsy which are rather funky and really well done, but those are reserved for “special occasions”.
So, in my never-ending quest for good-looking durable collars that my dogs can wear all the time, I researched and finally bought 2 Logical Padded Dog Collars, one in pink, one in brown. Here is my review-
I bought two of these collars a couple summers ago because I liked how they looked and they had pretty good reviews on Amazon. I rely pretty heavily on other peoples reviews of products so when I saw how many gave this collar 4 and 5 stars, I went for it.
I am really glad I did.
What I like about this collar
Leather– This collar is made of full grain leather. Full grain leather is leather that has not been sanded or buffed to remove imperfections. The grain remains allowing the leather to be especially strong and durable. This is GREAT for Pit Bulls and any rough and tumble dogs.
The collar is thick and durable. The outer leather is stitched to soft padded leather lining. Its padded but not poofy. Its a really nice smooth leather.
Hardware– The clasp and ring on this collar may be my favorite part. They are a good size, strong, and shiny. They make the collar look classy. The manufacturer states the hardware is Military and Law Enforcement constructed to be especially strong, and I believe it. The ring where you attach the collar is also strong and thick.
Care– easy to care for and wipes off easily with damp cloth or gentle leather cleaner. So far I have not used leather cleaner and they still look great.
Lifetime Guarantee– They offer an actual life time guarantee. If you don’t like this collar, for whatever reason, send it back and get your money back. They will also replace it if there is a problem. This is a company that stands behind their products 100%. It is also made in North America, which I like.
Colors– The collars come in black, brown, pink, red, and a light tan. I bought brown and pink. The brown is classic and the pink is bright and vibrant.
Size options– The collar comes in XS, S, M, L, and XL.
The manufacturer asks that you do not use an old collar to measure because sizes from different manufacturers will be different.
To decide which collar would fit your dog best, use measuring tape and put it around his neck. Make sure to wrap the tape where the collar would sit, not too high or too low. When you wrap the tape there should be no slack however don’t make it too tight either. You will know what looks right.
I ordered 2 size large collars for my Pit Bulls and they both fit perfectly.
- XS- 13 1/2 inches long, 1 inch wide, 3/8 inches thick- good for Yorkies, Pomeranians and Chihuahuas
- S- 17 1/2 inches long, 1 inch wide, 3/8 inches thick- good for Dachshunds, Maltese or Jack Russell Terriers
- M- 22 inches long, 1 1/4 inches wide, 3/8 inches thick- good for Beagles, Dalmatians and Poodles
- L- 26 inches long, 1 3/8 inches wide, 3/8 inches thick- good for Pit Bulls, Labs, Shepherds, and Bull Dogs
- XL- 32 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, 3/8 inches thick- good for Mastiffs, Rottweilers and Saint Bernards
Color Bleeds– . I actually had to look for some negative reviews about this collar because so far, I don’t really have anything bad to say. I read from a few different people that the color on the red collar can bleed if it gets wet. I have the pink collar and have not had this problem so I can’t say if the red does or not. Worth keeping in mind if you have a dog that loves water.
Size Issues– As with anything you buy online that requires a size, some people say the collar runs small, others say it runs big. Like I said, I bought large for my Pit Bulls and the collars fit perfectly for both dogs. There are 5 holes in the collar so you can make the collar smaller, or bigger, if needed.
Why Good Quality Dog Collars Matter
Your dog’s collar is one of the most important tools you have in keeping him safe and under control. His tags with all of his information will be attached to the collar so you want a collar that is sturdy and won’t come off.
Think about it- if he gets out of the yard, don’t you want his tags attached to a collar you know will stay on?
Plus, in most states having an ID tag is the law.
Another reason to invest in a good collar is because it gives you the ability to go for walks in areas where there is a lot of activity. In order to socialize our dogs, we have to take them around people and things they are not familiar with. Because of this, it’s pretty important that they are wearing collars that we know will stay on.
My Final Thoughts on the Logical Leather Padded Dog Collar
This is a great collar. I think they could easily charge double and people would still buy it, I would. Because of the way its made, the leather, the style, the colors, it looks much more expensive than it actually is. And it’s strong, which is really what is most important to me.
Final Rank- 4.5/5- I dropped it down by half a point due to the possible color bleeding issue.
If you’re looking for an every day good quality collar, you can’t go wrong with the Logical Leather Padded Dog Collar.
