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.

This soft yet robust metallic leather dog lead is available in 4 gorgeously shiny colours – gilt, gold leaf, silver or space ship. 

Petiquette leather dog leads are made by hand in our Northumberland workshop. The quality of the leather means that while your lead will feel beautifully comfy against your hand, it’s strong enough to cope if your dog is a bit of a lead tugger. 

When your dog is off lead, you can clip it round your shoulder or waist using the D-ring in the handle. 

Choose your favourite metallic colour from the dropdown and we’ll made the lead to order. It will measure approximately 1 metre in length and is available in a range of widths to suit any breed of dog. 

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

Customizations Total: £0.00

Need help choosing your colours?

We have over two dozen shades of soft Italian leather that your luxury leather dog collar can be made with, and over a dozen colours of genuine Swarovski crystals.

If you need any help deciding which colours work well together, then feel free to get in touch and we'll be happy to help.

Absolutely beautiful

We bought the metallic gold collar and lead for our Italian greyhound to wear on our wedding day and we’re absolutely in love with them both - they looked absolutely beautiful on our little pooch and the quality was superb. Can’t rate highly enough, totally unique and stylish. We struggle to find collars that fit as she’s so small but the size was perfect. Had lots of compliments and they even rushed our order to make sure we received them on time.
