Leather Whippet Collars by Petiquette
Handmade Whippet Collars in soft, supple Nappa Leather
Our handmade Whippet Collars are made from a fine Nappa Leather and available in twelve fabulous colours - plain and simple but very, very stylish!
Our Leather Whippet Collars are a classic Sighthound Collar shape, wider at the front and narrow at the back to relieve the pressure on the front of sensitive Whippet necks, and when fitted properly the shape of the collar helps to prevent the dog from "backing out" of the collar - a problem for most Sighthound breeds because of their relatively fine skulls.
Each Leather Whippet Collar is handmade to order for a perfect fit. Our standard sizes are listed above but we can make to specific requirements. Please email us on email@example.com and we will do everything we can to help.
Made in England with love.
Please note: in November 2017 we refreshed our collar and lead colour palette. If you are trying to order collars/leads to match items ordered prior to November 2017 but the colour is no longer shown please email us and we will do our best to help: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sizing & Care
To ensure that you order the right size collar for your dog, measure an existing collar that fits your dog well.
Take the existing collar and lay it flat. Measure from the centre of the buckle (usually this is also the beginning of the leather - shown below as point 'A') to the centre of the hole that you currently use to fasten the collar on your dog for a comfortable and secure fit (shown below as point 'B'). Take the measurement in inches if possible.
Once you have the measurement you need to allow 1” either side of the measurement. For example, if the measurement taken (in line with our instructions above) is 15", you will need a 14-16" collar. If the measurement taken is 9" you will need to order a 8"-10" collar. This means that if your dog puts on a little bit of weight, or loses a little bit of weight, there will be eyelets either side for you to go up or go down when fastening the collar.
If you have any questions about sizing please feel free to contact us on email@example.com.
Caring for your Nappa Leather Whippet Collar
The lovely Nappa leather used to make our Leather dog Collars is soft and supple and, like many of the finer things in life, appreciates a little TLC! To help keep the leather in tip top shape we recommend that you use a good quality leather balsam to clean and condition the leather collar all year round.
