Here at Petiquette Collars we're proud to offer a huge selection of leather colours so that you can create a leather dog collar look that you just won't find anywhere else. Some of our customers have even playfully dubbed us as "The United Colors of Benetton" of the dog world!
All of our leather dog collars are hand made using luxurious calf leathers from the tanneries of Italy. The more the collar is worn, the more the oils from your dogs' coat will soak in and create a wonderfully soft leather dog collar.
If you're unsure which colour of leather will look best on your dog, please don't hesitate to get in touch and we'll be able to help you out or send some small snippets so you can see which colour you prefer.
New for Spring 2018, we've added four sumptuously soft new metallic leathers to our collection. If you're looking for something a little more adventurous, then these unique leather shades may be right up your alley.
Please do note though, if your dog is a heavy neck scratcher, then metallic leather may not be the best choice for them, as it may show scratches a little easier than our Italian calf leather.
Swarovski Crystal Colour Options
We've a wide range of Swarovski crystals for you to decorate your luxury leather dog collar with. There are two sizes, large and small, the colour chart below shows the colours available in each size.
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.
Sizing a sighthound collar
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.
