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 Crystal Clarity Whippet collar can be customised to exactly how you would like it to look. The handmade whippet collar has uniform rows of sparkling Swarovski crystals which will glisten and sparkle beautifully in the light. Choose from any of our wide range of leather and crystal colours to get the whippet collar perfect for your and your hound.
The leather whippet collar will be one and 3/4 inches wide tapering to a 3/4 inch buckle and will be fully lined with soft leather to give the most comfortable fit possible. Unlike many harder leather collars, our soft leather lining helps prevent any rubbing, yet is durable enough for everyday use.
Matching leads are also available, opt for a plain leather lead in the same colour as the whippet collar, or go all out and opt for a crystallised lead with a row of dazzling crystals at the base of the lead. Petiquette handmade leather leads measure 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.
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.
So far so good !
I ordered this collar in slate grey with ab coloured crystals formerly called borealis. This collar is for my 10 year old blue whippet and it looks absolutely stunning on him. This is the sixth collar I bought from this truly amazing craftsman, am just sorry to have run out of whippets to buy collars for. Please have a look at the Celtic Cross, the Davy Jones, the butterfly collar and the Whippet puppy collars. Highly recommended.. These collars are so beautiful and so well made, I would recommend anyone to buy a personalised collar from Petiquette Collars.
Ordered the collar after previously buying a whippet puppy collar. Received an email querying the size I requested - thank goodness! Puppy now sporting a fabulously glamorous collar that fits! Fantastic customer service and superb product. Thank you!
