Meet Nova, the Fox Red Labrador whose family members include Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. 

We're pleased that Nova chose a D&H Padded Leather Collar and matching Rolled Lead, made specially for her at our London workshop. This is the same collar named by The Independent as 'Best Dog Collar Overall' in the Indy BestBuy Awards. 

Whatever your political stripes, we think it's a good thing to have the country's top dogs choose authentic British handmade accessories. Hurrah!

The colour choice, as you might expect, had to be blue (our Navy).

Like Nova's look? Take a look at our selection of handmade padded leather collars here.
