Product Review: Oscar & Hooch Signature collar and lead


Spaniels Tail Oscar and Hooch Signature Collar and Lead Review

Hooman and I are getting very spoilt for choice with all these lovely collars to review - this company, Oscar & Hooch,  have been featured in Vogue no less!

Spaniels Tail Oscar and Hooch Signature Collar and Lead Review



Who are Oscar & Hooch?

Oscar & Hooch are a British, traditional family owned company that specializes in the design and manufacture of fine quality collars and leads.  They take pride in their customer service, and aim to product beautiful collars and leads that are as functional and practical as they are stunning to look at.  As is often the case with pet product manufacturers, the founders were inspired by their own dogs, two chocolate labradors!  I wonder what I could inspire the Hooman to go into business with....

About the product


Spaniels Tail Oscar and Hooch Signature Collar and Lead Review
A rainbow of collars!

O&H sent for review the Signature Collar and Lead. All their collars and leads are handmade, using a very sophisticated suadette, woven to allow the fabric to breathe and soft for comfort.  All collars are also machine washable, water friendly, anti bacterial and dust mites, topped off with the finest quality hardware.   The leads are made to match, with the soft fabric providing comfort to the owner, all sewn onto high quality webbing to provide strength and durability.  To top it off, they are all available in twelve gorgeous colour combinations!


What did we think?

First of all, the collar and lead set arrived in a box, which we loved!  I don't think we've ever had a boxed set before and it was all wrapped in tossue - a really nice touch, and great if you are gifting it to someone.  The collar and lead themselves feel very good quality and the suedette material is really soft and velvety to the touch.  Hooman put it on me and I had the zoomies aroud the garden in it, so I obviously found it very comfortable - made taking photos a little tricky though!  Paul had asked the Hooman what colour she wanted to try - she chose the Hot Pink set.  I don't know why she has to be so girly about it all, but it is a gorgeous colour and actually Hooman found it very difficult to choose!  The hardware is all very sturdy and looks top quality, and the matching lead in the same suedette is extremely comfortable to hold (Hooman - particularly when you pull like a train to get to the meadows.....)

Verdict and where to buy

Overall, we were very impressed with this collar and lead set.  It is tactile, soft and comfortable to wear, and although Hooman shudders at the thought, it looks though it would quite happily withstand dunkings in ponds, bogs and cowpats.  The design and colours of all the range are stunning - there are lots of beautiful colours to choose from, so if you are looking to treat yourself and your dog, or as a gift for a doglover friend, this would be a beautiful set.

The collar and lead are both available directly from the Oscar & Hooch website - as an example price, the collar and lead for this review were both the Medium size, with the collar priced at £14.99 and the lead at £16.99
