Other than the machine cutting and sewing, each BUDDY BELT ID Collar is handcrafted with attention paid to every detail in Canada.
BUDDY BELTS are made of leather. Before initial wear, it is highly recommended that you treat your BUDDY BELT with a quality water and stain repellent product. We offer this service for $2 which stain guards your Buddy Belt. Regular stain repellent treatment is recommended to keep your Buddy Belt looking its best. If your BUDDY BELT gets wet, allow it to dry flat at room temperature. Never put leather in the dryer. For suede BUDDY BELTS, buff with a soft towel to restore the surface. Try to avoid products with silicone and/or wax as these ingredients tend to break down the natural oils in leather. Apply product initially and every two to three months with regular wear. Please note that the BUDDY BELT is not intended for swimming or other full water play. To clean your BUDDY BELT, gently blot liquid stains with a damp cloth. In the event of salt stains from winter wear, wipe with a clean, damp cloth after each wear and dry naturally. Re-treat as necessary.
These were replacement collars for those I bought 3-years ago. There’s nothing wrong with those BB collars other than daily wear. Obviously I like this brand because I bought the same collars in pink and blue, again. I’m sticking with Buddy Belt for harnesses and leashes too.
