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.

If you like colour, the Double Trouble Wideboy collar gives you two for the price of one. 

Choose one colour for the outside, and another for the lining. Don't worry about clashing colours. With this collar, they work brilliantly. To finish the look, we’ll use a contrasting colour for the stitching. Just pick your two colours from the dropdowns and let your imagination run riot. 

Unlike cheaper leather collars, the colours will never budge. They'll stay put on the collar, even if your dog is a keen swimmer. 

The Double Trouble can be made in a range of widths to suit all breeds and sizes of dogs. It has a handy D-ring in the middle so it’s easy to attach to the lead, and the collar narrows to a smaller buckle under your dog’s chin. 

All Petiquette leather collars are designed for comfort and durability. Made from lightweight Italian leather wrapped around a robust leather core, the collar is lined with super-soft nappa cowhide and finished with rounded edges. The collar feels soft as silk against your dog’s neck with no rubbing, fraying or chaffing.  

The collar can be customised to order. For example, if you’d like a different sized buckle, just let us know and we’ll make whatever you prefer. 

To finish the look, how about a new lead in a matching or contrasting colour? Take a look at ourleather dog leads.  

Leads are approx 1 metre long. Crystal leads will have the same colour crystals at the base of the lead

Customizations Total: £0.00

Beautifully made collar in lovely

Beautifully made collar in lovely soft leather and lovely colours to choose from. The middle D ring makes it easy to attach the lead. The only down side is my dog likes to roam through bushes and the leather marks easily so its covered in scratches and missing colour already but people still compliment me on my dogs collar.
