A unique collection of historic and fascinating dog collars has been built up over the years and is now the only one of its kind in Great Britain.
The Dog Collar Museum
Mrs. Gertrude Hunt most generously presented her collection of collars to the Leeds Castle Foundation in memory of her husband, John Hunt, the distinguished medievalist.
The collection of over 100 collars and related exhibits has since been added to and enhanced by the Foundation itself. Spanning five centuries, the collection contains examples of collars from fearsome fetters for the great hunting hounds of the past, to canine couture for 21st century pooches.
The Dog Collar Museum has now been presented in a new Exhibition Centre in the Fairfax Courtyard.
