If you mean breaking the leather as in making it softer. I use a small block of soft wood rubbed on it while wet. Then while watching tv just keep playing with it rolling it in your hands.

I stretch mine out first and pin the to a board then scrap the fleshy bits off with the back of a knife after a couple a days.

Then i mainly use them as dummy covers. My jrt loves them.
