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.
New for 2018, we've sourced a show stopping metallic leather which the brave amongst you are sure to love. Available in four stunning colours; Gilt, Gold Leaf, Silver and Spaceship, this luxuriously soft leather will be sure to turn heads wherever your dog goes.
We'll line the metallic leather Whippet collar with the same leather which is soft enough not to cause any irritation to the delicate neck of your whippet.
Due to the nature of metallic leather, we wouldn't recommend it for dogs who are heavy neck scratchers as they canmake scratches to the surface of the leather more apparent.
Petiquette leather whippet collars are one and 3/4 inches wide and taper to a 3/4 inch buckle. We've found that this gives the best amount of support for the delicate whippet neck without being too bulky.
To order your handmade leather whippet collar, simply select your chosen colour from the drop down menu. We'll line it with the same soft leather for added comfort.
We also offer handmade leather leads to compliment your new stylish whippet collar. Each lead measures approximately one metre in length, has a handy d ring in the handle for clipping around your shoulder while your whippet is off lead. We'd recommend either 5/8 or 3/4 inch wide leads for whippets.
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.
