Every leather dog collar that we make is tailor made to fit your dog’s neck like a glove, with enough room to tighten or loosen to allow for differences due to grooming. No more annoying flaps of leather that look unsightly and more often than not get chewed on.
It really couldn't be easier to measure your dog’s neck for a handmade leather dog collar from Petiquette Collars. All you will need is a soft tape measure or a piece of string, a pen and paper, and perhaps most importantly, your dog.
We are always happy to help when it comes to choosing the size for your dog collar to ensure the perfect fit for your canine friend. If you are in any doubt, please contact us.
Have your dog stand comfortably, hopefully they won’t wriggle too much, but if they do, then bribery with some tasty treats can help. Wrap the tape measure or piece of string around the middle of your dog’s neck so that it is touching the fur but is not tight around the neck.
Make a note of this reading and then take a look at the sizes we offer for each of our bespoke collars.
We would recommend that you choose the collar size where the smallest hole would be as close to the neck measurement as possible.
If your dog has a neck size of roughly 13.5”, then you should choose a 13” - 15” collar size. This will give enough room to tighten it should they lose a little weight, and it gives enough room to slacken it if needed.
If you have a sighthound such as an Italian Greyhound, Whippet, lurcher or Greyhound for example, rather than measuring around the middle of the neck, wrap the tape measure so that it is fairly snug, just behind the ears and under the chin at the top of the neck.
As with our classic collars would recommend that you choose the collar size where the smallest hole is as close to the neck measurement as possible.
If you are measuring for a house collar, we would advise that you measure further down the neck, so that the collar will hang fairly loosely.
Your little dog will adore this leather puppy collar. It’s made by hand from luxuriously soft Italian calf leather, and lined with the same soft leather.
For your little puppy’s first collar, it’s the perfect choice. With no hard edges to cause irritation, it will feel soft and comfy from day one.
The collar is available in a huge range of colours so you’re guaranteed to find something to suit your little pooch. Choose your favourite colour and we’ll make the collar to order.
Unlike cheaper puppy collars, the leather is totally colour-fast. Even the brightest colours will stay put on the collar when your little bundle of fluff is running around in the rain.
If you’re unsure about the sizing, take a look at our guide below, and feel free to get in touch if you get stuck. We’re always happy to help.
Great quality looks splendid on Barnaby
lovely quality and well made just a little stiff as would have preferred a more supple one for a young puppy
I have two pups so we had two different colours great quality and great service!!
We have a lovely collection of petiquette collars and had to wait for Jasmine our new baby to grow a little, she is now 2kg and the puppy collar is perfect for her.
Can't wait for her to grow into the crystal !
Excellent top quality I have only ever purchased these collars for my dog over the years
