College Leads & Collars: University of Oregon, Oregon State, and Boise State

These collars and leads are made right here in Oregon. We carry 1″ wide, 4′ long leads for each of the three colleges listed above (when we can keep them in stock). The collars are adjustable, with small and medium 3/4″ wide, large and extra large 1″ wide, and extra extra large 1-1/2″ wide. Smalls fit 8-1/2 – 12-1/2″ necks, mediums 11-1/2 – 17-1/2″, larges 13 – 21″, extra larges 16 – 27″, and xxl 20-1/2 – 35″. Not every collar size is available for every college.

Round (aka rolled) collars are sizes 24″ and 26″. Spiked leather collars fit necks 10″ up to 30″. To get an 8″ version, you go with fake leather.

Metal and Nylon Choke, Check Choke, and Prong Collars

Soda Mountain carries the classic choke chain collar, but these shouldn’t be used on dogs that pull constantly at the lead. The pressure across the windpipe can cause damage. That’s why check chokes (aka martingales) and prong training collars are available. All three styles should be used with a snap tight followed by a quick release motion.

Safety Collars

Collar accessories dangle from the dog’s collar, of all things. Soda Mountain has a laser engraver with metal tags that can have information carved on both sides of the tag while you wait. We also have battery-operated flashing safety lights.
