In this post, we will guide you through the process of finding the perfect collar for your small or large breed dog. From measuring tips to style considerations, we have got you covered. Let’s dive in and ensure your furry friend is both comfortable and stylish!

Understanding the Importance of a Proper Fit
– Why a well-fitted collar is crucial for your dog’s comfort and safety. It’s important that your dog’s collar fits snugly, too tight and and it will cause discomfort, rubbing and restricted breathing. On the other hand if it’s too loose there is the potential for it to get caught up on fences or to slip over the dog’s head causing him to escape.
– How a handmade leather collar can provide a superior fit. When you choose a handmade leather collar you can decide on the width, style and length to fit your dog perfectly. So whether tiny or tall a leather collar is perfect for all.

Measuring Your Dog for the Perfect Fit
– Step-by-step guide to accurately measure your dog’s neck size. There are two ways that you can measure your dog for his new collar. The first is to actually measure his neck, using a fabric tape measure wrap around your dog’s neck leaving a space of two fingers between the neck and tape. Make note of the measurement. The second way is to measure your dog’s existing collar, measure from where the leather meets the buckle to the most used hole. This will give your dog’s neck size.
– The importance of leaving room for growth and adjustment. A good collar will have extra holes for tightening and loosening ensuring there is room for a change in size of your dog’s neck.

Choosing the Right Width and Style
– Factors to consider when selecting collar width. The wider the collar, the heavier and more restrictive it will be to the dog. Therefore wider collars are best suited to large dog breeds while small dogs should wear slimmer collars. This also has the benefit of looking aesthetically pleasing.
– Popular styles for small and large breed dogs. Large dogs are suited to bridle leather or padded collars, small dogs to slimmer or rolled collars.

Customisation Options
– Personalise your dog’s collar with their name. All flat leather collars can be personalised with your dog’s name up to 7 letters, no special characters.
– Selecting the right colour and finish to match your dog’s personality. Each dog is unique and will have a colour or style that matches them perfectly. Choose from padded, rolled or flat and the colour of your choice to accentuate your dog’s style

Tips for Maintaining Your Leather Dog Collar
– Proper cleaning and conditioning techniques to ensure longevity. Leather is a tough material and with a little care can be kept looking like new. Leather does not like salt water so always remove your dog’s collar before they swim in the sea. Always use leather care products on your leather collar and never household products. When saturated from a wet walk remove from the dog and leave to air dry naturally.
– How to store your leather collar when not in use. When not being used store you leather collar in a cool dry place away from sunlight and direct heat sources.
