Harris Rope Dog Collar
So named after the beautiful Isle of Harris found on the West Coast of Scotland, raw, natural and stunningly beautiful with pale sandy beaches and clear azure blue seas. Simple croft and fishing houses are dotted around the Island with hand built slate stone walls that withstand the harsh west winds in the winter months and rolling hills which take you eye onto the neighbouring Islands and to the mainland of Scotland. Harris is famous for it's rugged beauty, beautiful unspoiled scenery, white silver sand and almost turquoise seas in the summer. A thriving small industry of wool, gin and fishing is exported from the Island and it’s Islanders living a happy but simple life. One day..one day we say ..we will return to see you and walk bare foot along your shores, until then...
Our beautiful handmade Harris Rope Dog Collars and matching leads are crafted by Hugo & Otto in the middle of the Cheshire Countryside within the stunning Cholmondeley Castle Estate. Individually crafted from the highest grade and quality English marine grade braid on braid rope that is used by International yachtsmen around the world. This luxury dog collar is made in a stunning black and the best thing about braid on braid rope it will not stretch and is both practical and easy to live with as it can be washed for those oh so muddy moments. We splice and sew the rope together and whip over the rope in a beautiful Turqouise Blue cord with a Salt Grey cord beneath to represent the sea and the sand from Harris adding a stunning detail to your dog's collar. We only use and recommend to use solid brass hardware or stainless steel, or solid metals for dog hardware and with the Harris we have nickel plated the brass to add the sparkle from the sea and sun.
Hugo & Otto standard fit collars are available in a range of 5 sizes and designed to fit loosely around your dog's neck and rest on the collar bone. We also provide a bespoke service for you made from your measurements sized which we make to order.
The Harris Dog Collar is available with a matching City Lead or a matching 2 x adjustable double lead.

On check out you will see a special instruction box to enter your measurements or any other special instructions, you also input your email address and we will automatically contact you via email. We really want to ensure your sizing is correct to confirm sizing, breed type and we do recommend that you send us a little picture of your dog whilst being measured so that we can ensure the fit is correct. Please note that we make bespoke orders to your measurements, any bespoke orders cannot be returned unless they are found to be faulty.
Measuring Your Dog
It is important that you use a soft tape measure or use a piece of string and measure the string against a hard measuring tape. Take off your dog's collar and measure the part of the neck where the collar normally sits. Place 2 fingers between the tape and the neck to give the growth room and do not pull the tape tight. When ordering the standard sizes order up to 2 cm larger to allow the collar to sit comfortably on the collar bone. You should not be able to pull the collar easily over your dog's head it should be secure enough when fitting so that your dog cannot pull free. If you do have any questions please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can advise you.
nb: The measurement when making our collars is taken from the brass ring that connects the collar to the end of the opposite brass clasp (not the rope end to end).
