This leather Hunt Collar is a must for the distinctive working dog. Great looking and extremely durable. Center "safety" ring relieves pressure when caught on an obstacle and is also a handy place to attach a lead. Fully stitched design with solid brass roller buckle, center ring and dee ring. Made in the USA.


These are NECK SIZE COLLARS which means the dog's measured neck size IS the collar size.

Measure Your Dog's Neck to ensure a proper fit.

  • Use a measuring tape, cloth tape, or a piece of string (and measure the string).
  • Measure your dog's neck where you want the collar to rest on the neck AND at the appropriate tightness.
  • Once you have a measurement, refer to the Guide below to find the appropriate size.
  • The neck size (NS) represents the measurement from the center of the buckle to the fourth adjustment hole.
  • You can adjust 1-inch longer or 3-inches shorter. Keep in mind that using the shorter adjustment holes will leave more collar strap extending past the buckle.

Fantastic collar
January 25, 2023
This is my second leather collar from GDS. 1st is 11+ years old on my old GSP. It’s a bit tattered and looking rough, but he’s still wearing it , after 10years of hard hunting with it on. It’s got a lifetime of memories in that collar. Minimal maintenance throughout the years, washed in soap & water when iy got muddy and treated with leather conditioner about 1/yr. Hoping this 2nd collar purchased for my 5month old DK will age as equally graceful through the years.
  • Beautiful & rugged
  • Gets pretty grimy with sweat, water, mud

Perfect collar
January 20, 2021
This Mendoza leather collar is awesome, and I would highly recommend getting the 6’ Mendoza lead to go along with it. They are a perfect match. The collar has the safety ring which I really like, not only safe for your dog, but easy to snap the lead to as well. Any of your dogs needs need to be purchased from gun dog supply, they are the go to place. They know there stuff, they sell quality products, and give top notch outstanding customer service.
  • Beautiful collar
  • Well made
  • Can get brass information plate attached
  • Built to last a lifetime
  • All your friends will be jealous if they don't have one.
  • There are no other cons

My sister recommended them to me as she has several Weimaraner Lolligaggers and I'd been wanting a similar collar.
I had ordered a collar for my Weimaraner Lolligagger and noticed a needed correction (no one's fault- computer exception); I called to ask how I can either send back or pay for new one. Left a voicemail message. Call returned quickly; lovely service and resolution.
The Lolligagger is now running around in circles sporting her beautiful collar.
Thank you kindly, Laura

I bought one of these decades ago on the recommendation of Gun Dog Supply and several since. They are a good match on my Irish Setter(s). Most important as my dogs go everywhere with me, I have absolute confidence that the collar will hold if anything unexpected comes along.

I bought this to replace a nylon collar on my 9 month old GWP. She found it comfortable from the start, and when pulling hard while on a leash, the ring seems to lessen the stress on her throat. It also looks great. If she outgrows this size, a larger one will be the replacement.
  • Quality materials and construction.

You can not buy a better collar
May 8, 2021
I have been buying these collars for 25 years or more. In my mind you can not get a better collar. the stitched edges, heavy duty roller buckle hardware and vivets at the fold overs make these things last for years. They are stiff enough the dog feels light collar pressure so no jerking and potential for injury when training the center ring makes hook up to a lead easy because the ring is always on top of the dog. You can add a second brass plate and have all your information right on the collar so nothing hangs off the dog to get caught on anything

The only thing I do different is to replace the hollow rivets that are included and use a solid copper rivets and washers to hold the plates on
  • Great construction, excellent life (a bit of neatsfoot oil 1-2x a year)
  • The only thing I change is to s solid rivet on the name plates, my personal choice after having one hollow rivet come off years ago

Well Made Handsome Collar For Any Dog
January 14, 2021
If you have a working dog, leather collars are far superior to nylon or certainly metal-link collars. This is a well constructed leather collar with reinforcing stitching, rivets and brass hardware. The workmanship is very good. This collar will last a long time I'm sure.
Having the customized nameplate riveted on means it will never get lost and it's also quiet!
  • I prefer the center-riing style collar
  • Nice sturdy hardware
  • Customized nameplate securely attached
  • None that I can tell

A well made classy collar that should last a lifetime. Looks good, well made and fast shipping from GDS.

Followed Steve's Advice
October 14, 2020
Purchased the Mendota collar for its look and weight...have two large dogs, an adopted pyrenees/border collie mix (5 years old) and a chocolate lab puppy (6 months). As the pup has grown older and bolder, they've begun wandering off our 15 acre property together to visit neighbors. Following Steve's advice, I added the brass tag to each collar including my name, city, phone number and the phrase "reward if found." Most have refused to take any money, so it's only cost me an additional $40 so far to get my dogs back.

the collar was 1" too long in the tightest hole. I had to put in another buckle hole. This made the end of the collar too long.
  • Great quality and hardware.
  • It is difficult to figure te correct collar size.

The collar is fine, just looking for a not so wide one. I use them in photography and don't like the look of the collar being so wide.

Very well made collar. I purchased this collar for my dog to wear during herding classes. Bonus is the brass name plate that is nicely attached to the collar, so no dangling tags.

These collars are great. I have had the regular one for 7 years, so I decided it was time for a new collar since the brass ring has worn out where I attach the registration and rabies tag. So I ordered 2, the D-ring for use only during hunting season and regular for everyday use. As they say.. You get what you pay for, a quality collar!!!
