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.
With the Colour Contrast leather whippet collar, you can create a whippet collar which will perfectly compliment your sighthound's coat. Choose from any two shades of our wide range of leathers and we'll handmake a leather whippet collar that will not only last but will also be a luxurious fit around the delicate neck of your whippet.
Why not add a matching lead to your order, our handmade leather leads measure approximately one metre in length and will be made using the same leather combination as your handmade leather whippet collar. We'd recommend either a 5/8 or 3/4 inch wide lead for a whippet.
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.
If there's anything at all you're unsure about before ordering a leather collar from Petiquette, please get in touch and we'll be more than happy to help.
Really good quality with prompt delivery and our whippet loves it
Love the fact there was a vast array of colours and colour combinations to choose from. The delivery was very prompt and goods were sent same or next day. The collar is a little stiffer than I would prefer.
A great quality collar. You certainly get what you pay for - well worth the money. Highly recommended.
This is the third collar I've bought from you and, as always, I'm delighted. Great service, quality and a lovely colour for Miss Pebbles! Thankyou
The Madeira Blue collar with Dove stitching and lining arrived quickly and looks great on Reggie who is a black whippet. The quality was excellent and it is very soft and a comfortable fit. This is our second collar and I would always recommend to anyone wanting a collar for their sighthound.
