How to measure your dog's neck for a leather dog collar

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.

 

Measuring your dog for a classic collar

Step 1

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. 

Step 2

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.

For example

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.

Measuring a sighthound for a collar

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

A beautifully supple blue leather cat collar hand made using the finest vegetable tanned Italian leather.  The luxurious leather cat collar features a breakaway clip for your cat's safety, is lined with soft baby blue nappa leather for the most comfortable fit and stitched with matching baby blue thread.

 

SIZING

Petiquette leather cat collars will fit a cat with a neck size between 20cm and 25cm.  In order to ensure the collar will fit your cat, wrap a soft tape measure loosely around the middle of the neck allowing enough room for 1 finger and take that measurement.  

 

SAFETY

We use a high quality breakaway clip which will come apart when a medium amount of pressure is exerted on it.  The collars are not recommended for use on cats weighing under 2.5kg as there will not be enough weight to break the clip open if they become caught.

Need help choosing your colours?

We have over two dozen shades of soft Italian leather that your luxury leather dog collar can be made with, and over a dozen colours of genuine Swarovski crystals.

If you need any help deciding which colours work well together, then feel free to get in touch and we'll be happy to help.
