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.

The leather coupler is available in 4 widths and it measures 12” from ring to clasp. If you’d like a shorter or longer length, just ask. We make all our products to order so we’re happy to accommodate you.

You can smell the quality

You can smell the quality in this beautifully made Coupler lead. I chose Willow, a blend of Chocolate and Woodland colours, which matches his collar perfectly. This Coupler feels strong yet supple and I can't wait to try it out. Definitely worth the price paid.

Exceptional

Just wanted to say I couldn't be more pleased with my collars and leads. They really are exceptional and my pooches look FAB in their bling collars. They are admired where ever we go. I would also like to thank you very much for taking the time to make me the coupling links to match that I asked you to make. The new collars of leather really are lovely. We are getting a new puppy in Septmeber and I will be in touch to have another collar made!!!! Thank you once again. April x
