Akita Collar

This Akita collar is based on the traditional Japanese design that you can see on my antique pictures.  This collar is of black latigo leather with standard pyramid studs, and machined o ring with flowered center piece that I hand make.  Each strap is approximately 1.25 inches to a buckle.

This design is based on vintage works that dates back to the turn of the century and well before.  There are forms of this collar now a days called the illusion collar, but this design was the original concept.  It was primarily used for better control of the dog, and to keep the dog's long hair down.  More of this type of collar can be seen on my vintage pictures in the blog.
