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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Total Chaos is the Wideboy version of our most popular Swarovski crystal dog collar – Chaos Theory. Encrusted with genuine Swarovski crystals, this collar is a riot of sparkling colour.
What’s more, each collar is completely unique. You can choose whichever colour leather you fancy, then pick as many or as few colours as you like from our entire range of crystals. We’ll squeeze as many as possible onto your collar. Seriously, you’ll need sunglasses!
We make this collar entirely by hand in a range of widths depending on your dog’s neck size, tapering under the neck, with a D-ring in the middle for easy lead attachment.
It’s pure Italian leather, wrapped around a sturdy leather core with a super-soft leather lining against your dog’s neck. It’s comfy from day one, and keeps getting softer as time goes on.
Want the full effect?
If you like, we can make a matching leather dog lead. For total bling, we can put the same random pattern of Swarovski crystals next to the clasp. Or, if you feel the need for something more modest, we can make it in plain coloured leather with no embellishment.
