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.
The Proud as Punch Swarovski crystal Whippet collar has a chequerboard style pattern of Swarovski crystals in the colour of your choice. Each Swarovski crystal is riveted into place by hand making this a durable handmade leather whippet collar which is suitable for everyday use or alternatively for those special ocassions.
Your handmade leather Whippet collar will be one and 3/4 inches wide, narrowing to a 3/4 inch buckle, d ring and strap. The Whippet collar will be fully lined with soft leather for comfort, and to minimise any chance of rubbing or irritation.
If you'd like to order a lead to go with your Proud as Punch Swarovski crystal Whippet collar, we have two options. A matching, crystallised lead which will have a row of crystals at the base of the lead, or a plain leather lead, made in the same leather colour as your collar. Petiquette handmade leather leads are approximately one metre in length.
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 for your sparkling crystal collar design.
