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.
It can be difficult finding the right collar for your new Italian Greyhound puppy, their tiny necks often make it difficult to source a well made collar. Many of our customers have told us they've resorted to using cat collars until their puppy was large enough for a leather collar. Our custom made Italian Greyhound leather puppy collars are made using our beautiful Italian calf leather and have been tried and tested on even the smallest Iggies and are the perfect size and weight for an Italian Greyhound or small Whippet puppy.
It's important for Italian Greyhounds and Whippets to have a tapered collar to protect the vertebrae in their necks, so our sighthound puppy collars reflect that, measuring 1 1/4" at the widest point and tapering down to a 1/2" buckle.
To measure your puppy for a collar, it's easiest if you can get them to sit or stand so they're comfortable and then wrap a tape measure all the way around from under their chin to behind their ears. Ideally you want the tape measure to be relatively loose as pups grow rapidly so you don't want anything too tight. If the measurement is 7", then you'd need a 7"-9" collar.
If you're unsure of which size to order please don't hesitate to get in touch and we'll be able to suggest the best collar size for your puppy.
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.
Thank you, our whippet collar is just perfect for our puppy and so well made.
I love this collar it looks fab but sadly it has scratched very easily and the pigmant has changed so it doesn’t look so smart. She has only worn it a few times. Also it is difficult to attach the lead to the clasp.
Great service, really smart and comfy collars for my Italian greyhounds
Very impressed with our dog’s vibrant blue collar. Petiquette were extremely helpful and efficient. Woriginally ordered the wrong size originally, but they were very helpful when it came to rectifying our mistake. Thank you!
Very, very happy with our puppy's new sighthound collar. Great colour options and the finished collar is very well made. Great customer service too!
