Every leather dog collar that we make is tailor made to fit your dog's neck like a glove. No more annoying flaps of leather that look unsightly and more often than not get chewed on.
We make our collars so that there is plenty of room to loosen and tighten the collar to allow for before and after grooming, or if your canine friend may *ahem* put on a little padding...
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.
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.
If you have a sighthound such as an Italian Greyhound, Whippet, lurcher or Greyhound for example, rather than measuring the the middle of the neck, wrap the tape measure so that it is just behind the ears and under the chin at the top of the neck.
The tape measure shouldn't be hanging loose, and do not put your fingers underneath the tape measure; we all have different sized fingers, so this will give an inaccurate measurement.
Make a note of this reading and then take a look at the sizes we offer for each of our bespoke collars.
Whatever the measurement of your dog's neck is, we would recommend that you choose the size where the smallest hole would be as close to the neck measurement as possible.
In other words...
If your dog has a neck size of roughly 13.5", then we would always recommend that you 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.
If you feel that your dog doesn't fit any of our sizes, or if you just need to talk to someone to make sure you've got it right, then please call or email us.
We're always available to talk you through sizing, as we want your dog to be comfortable in their new leather dog collar.
Also known as a martingale collar, this type of collar is ideal if your dog has a tendency to back out of or escape from regular flat collars, or if you struggle with the buckle of a regular leather dog collar.
We have sourced luxurious Italian calf leather to create our soft leather dog collars. You are able to choose the main colour for the outer part of the collar, then if you wish, a contrasting lining and stitching. Whether you would like a traditional brown leather collar, or a mix of lime green and jaffa orange leather, there are colour combinations to suit any dog coat or personality.
The martingale collars can be made in four different widths from 1/2" wide to 1" wide to fit small breeds of dog or large breeds. We use a chrome plated check chain for our martingale collars, and the wider the collar, the heavier the chain will be. Please note , we would not advise using a 1/2" or 5/8" wide collar for larger dog breeds as they may be able to snap the chain if they are pull on the lead regularly.
If you are looking for a dog collar and lead set, then we also offer a matching lead, which will be made using the same colours of leather that you choose for your collar.
The leather dog leads measure approximately one metre in length from handle to clasp, and feature a d ring in the handle so that the lead can be clipped around a shoulder when your dog is off lead.
In the past people would use a choke collar to "check" the dog if it started to pull. The collar would be used to cause discomfort which was believed to teach the dog to stop pulling on the lead. In actual fact, it would cause a fear based response, and is not helping the dog in the slightest, only causing them pain and long term damage.
To avoid this, it is vital that when the collar is pulled tight around the dog's neck, the two loops on either end of the chain are almost touching. This ensures that the collar cannot be used to choke the dog, and the collar will be comfortably loose if the dog is not pulling.
If your dog does pull and you are unsure how to remedy it, we would advise seeking the advice of a professional trainer, who will teach you better ways to reward and train your dog.
All of our leather dog collars are hand made to order and typically take around 14 days for dispatch. UK delivery then normally takes 2-3 working days.
