Buddys Natural Collection was designed to have a lower impact on the environment. This collection is made with raw, veg tan leather that uses no color dyes and a lower impact tanning process. The products are single layer leather which eliminates the need for glue. The items are not stitched, eliminating the nylon thread. The BB logo is branded into each piece, no Lexan or plastic tags are used, further reducing environmental impact. Scars and marks that appear on the surface are natural and part of the beauty of the leather. Tone variations can exist due to light exposure, handling and storage. Surface patina will develop its own personality as it as it ages and wears. Moisture, a dogs natural oils and day to day wear will all contribute to the aging process. Treating the leather beforehand can lessen the impact of weather and wear. We recommend applying a leather protector before using the Natural BB. Buddy Belt ID Collars are leather neck bands made to match your BB Harness. BB ID Collars allow you to remove your BB Harness without removing your dogs ID.
