The quality of materials and workmanship are an understood side note with this collar. Its striking contrasts are uniquely pleasing. The flashes of fire opal amidst the geometric pattern are softened and enhanced by the free flow of hand cut design.

Because the flat martingale collar needs to slip over your dog's head, you need to measure the largest point BEFORE it slips onto and over the ears. Using a flexible tape measure is helpful. The measurement around the head will be the inner circumference or inner measurement of the collar. Be careful to avoid fingers under the measuring tape. Remember that it is easier to slide a collar over the head and onto the neck than to pull it off.
