It’s high time I put some leather work on this blog! It’s been a long time since the last update, so I’ve got lots to show you. I hope you’re sitting comfortably.

We introduced the Nautilus in June of last year, but I seem to have neglected to share it here. It features steampunk conchos and a series of contrasting round spots.

Were you wondering if it would work on brown leather with a nameplate? Wonder no more.

A few years ago we co-designed the Lone Rocker with a client. It was so popular that another company decided to steal the design and mass-produce it. Beware of cheap imitations, ours is still the original and the best, is handmade in Australia and comes with a ten-year guarantee. Here’s a wide Lone Rocker with a nameplate and matching lead.

Please note, due to the added nameplate, this collar is a customised version of the design. Ordinarily there would be six stars and clusters of six pyramids.

Another design that’s been a firm favourite with our customers is the Asteroid Belt in all it’s many permutations.

Nikki the Borzoi won her Asteroid Belt with bling training collar and matching lead at The Good Dog Easter Parade in Balmain a few months ago. On the right is a regular Lunatic in burgundy and silver with clear reflectors and a nameplate, plus matching lead, for a Kelpie that does competition obedience.

The Urban Cowboy has been on our site for quite some time, but it wasn’t until a few months ago that we added photos to the wide listing. I was waiting for the perfect blue eyed Husky to model it and Vai from Arctic Breed Rescue fit the bill.

Speaking of Huskies, these two custom hand-stamped collars with matching leads are now being sported by two Sydney bears – Athena and Salt.

Another one we’ve been getting a lot of orders for is the Diddley Eye. These sets were both for Finnish Lapphunds, in different states, owned by people that don’t know each other!

Our lovely foster dog Jackson was recently adopted, but while he was here he was put to work modeling client orders. This is a Divadog in brown, chestnut and brass with a standard leash.

During our birthday promotion back in April we received this order for Carlos the French Bulldog – a narrow Rocknrolla training collar in chestnut and brass. I love this collar so much, it really pained me to hand it over!

And while we’re talking about bulldogs in chestnut and brass collars, here’s Sophie in her wide No Frills with no centre d-ring. She wasn’t remotely interested in cooperating with the photographer.

All Breeds Dog Training in Sydney have been selling our leads to their clients for almost as long as we’ve been in business. As a long overdue thank you we made this custom collar for their Amstaff, Chilli. It’s based on the Sweetheart, but it’s 2″ wide [tapering to 1.5″ at the buckle] and has no conchos.

We have a new product that we just launched today – the Heart Throb! It’s 1-1/4″ wide and features these beautiful bling encrusted heart conchos [in pink or blue] with round spots and Swarovski crystals. Pictured is the training collar version, but it’s also available as a regular flat collar.

Cocoa’s owner also got a modified three-way leash that can be worn around her waist. You can check it out here.

And last of all, a couple more facts…

Our full album of facts can be seen on our Facebook page here.

If you’re still not convinced that you need some Ruthless Leather in your life, you can read these glowing testimonials!

Meet Bolt!

Bolt is a 12 month old Husky with juvenile cataracts. One eye is mature and the other eye is very rapidly reaching that point as well. As of 2 weeks ago the opthomologist gave him a 95% success rate if they operated within the month.

So far Arctic Breed Rescue have managed to raise just under half of his specialist surgery bill. Unfortunately, they won’t be able to operate on him until they raise the rest. This is a concern because in the two weeks since they saw him last his eyesight has deteriorated.

It was a quiet month for rescue photos last month as adoptions are very slow at the moment. But here are the few that I did get to meet.
