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.
The Rhinestone Rainbow Swarovski crystal Whippet collar is one of most stunning collars to look at. We squeeze as many Swarovski crystals as possible onto your handmade leather Whippet collar in all of the colours of the rainbow.
Your Whippet collar will measure one and 3/4 inches at the widest part and narrow to a 3/4 inch buckle and d ring. The collar will be lined with a soft Italian calf leather to give the most comfortable fit and to reduce the chance of any rubbing that can be associated with firmer leather collars.
If you'd like a leather lead to go with your collar, there's a crystallised version which has a cluster of Swarovski crystals at the base of the lead, or a plain leather lead available in a variety of widths. All of our handmade dog leads are one metre in length.
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.
Service was excellent and Geoff was quick to reply to all my questions - even at 10pm on a Sunday! delivery was without any issue and the collar is beautifully made and as described. Leather is nice and soft and the overall product is just lovely. definitely recommend!
