Petiquette Collars are tailor made to order for the perfect fit, so measuring your dog's neck or existing collar is essential.
We measure our collars from the centre of the buckle to the first and last hole as in the image below, so if the distance from the centre of the buckle to the first hole was 12" and the distance to the last hole was 14", the collar size would be a 12"-14" and would fit a dog with a neck between the sizes of 12" and 14". There is a half an inch gap between each hole.
To measure your dog's neck, use a soft tape measure or piece of string and wrap around the centre of the neck so that it is touching the fur but is not tight. This will be the smallest length of the collar.
For example, if the measurement is 12", we'd recommend a 12"-14" collar. If you're unsure of sizing please contact us before ordering.
Please note, DO NOT measure the total length of your collar as this will lead to an incorrect size.
IF YOU'RE AT ALL UNSURE, OR WOULD LIKE A CUSTOM SIZE, PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO GET IN TOUCH.
To size your sighthound for a Petiquette collar, you can measure your existing collar in exactly the same way as above.
If measuring your dog's neck, then it's slightly different as sighthounds are adept escape artists. With a soft tape measure, measure the circumference of the neck from below the chin to behind the ears so that the tape measure is touching the fur but is not tight. If the measurement is 13", then the smallest sized hole on the collar would be 13" from the centre of the buckle on your Petiquette collar.
Perfect for the Greyhounds, and the larger sighthound breeds, our metallic leather Greyhound and lurcher collar can be made to your order in any colour choice. We have four striking shades to choose from; Gilt, Gold Leaf, Silver and Spaceship.
Due to the nature of metallic leather, we wouldn't recommend it for dogs who are heavy neck scratchers as they canmake scratches to the surface of the leather more apparent.
Petiquette leather Greyhound collars are two inches wide at the widest part and taper to a one inch buckle and strap, offering all of the support needed for your elegant hound.
Here at Petiquette we believe that collars should not only look good, but should also be made to last. Our collars are made using soft Italian calf leather with an inner core of strong leather making them tough, durable and stylish.
We also offer handmade leather leads which will compliment your leather lurcher collar. The lead will be made using the same two shades of leather you've selected from the colour swatches above and will measure approximately one metre. We'd recommend either a 3/4 or one inch wide lead for Greyhounds and lurchers, although if your dog doesn't pull, then any width would work just as well.
As all of our designer dog collars are handmade to order, it allows you the opportunity to create one of a kind collars, unavailable from most retailers.
Choose any shade of our Italian calf leather or metallic leathers to have your leather collar made in, and browse our selection of Swarovski crystals if you're creating a sparkling crystal collar design.
