This hound collar has a maximum width of 2 ¼ inches at its widest point, at its thinnest width ¾ inches at strap and buckle ends.
. The leather I use is a premium grade, full grain, vegetable tanned and come in a selection of colours. They all have a waterproof coating and finish (Please be aware that the dark brown leather is very dark and looks almost black in certain lighting).
. The collars are hand saddle stitched with your choice of waxed thread, which is made in Devon.
. Saddle stitch is a technique traditionally used in equine equipment, so the collar can withstand a lot of heavy-duty activities.
. The hardware I use is a traditional style and is made in Knutsford.
. I treat all the leather collars I make with softening oils and beeswax, so it retains its quality and resistance to certain elements.
. To measure your dog, take a tape measure, and measure around the neck where the collar should naturally sit (you can also measure a pre-existing collar that fits your dog correctly). Make sure you are able to fit 2 fingers comfortably between your dog and the tape measure and record the size in inches. This is where I will place the centre hole in your bespoke collar, there are 2 inches (slightly less on smaller sizes) either side to allow for fluctuations in size and weight.
. Please be aware that the tartan pattern may slightly differ from the collars in the photograph examples, this is due to the variation of pattern on the tartan.
. Please do not let your dog collar get too saturated with water or get too hot. This could cause it to lose its supple quality and make it brittle.
. Collar care instructions included with your order.
. This collar is suitable for a variety of hound breeds such as Grey Hounds, Borzois, Salukis, Whippets, Lurchers and so on. If you are interested and require a specific size that is not listed, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
