This collar really needs the long, elegant body lines of a greyhound. Other breeds are welcome buyers, but the beauty of the greyhound is my preference for this collar.
True Sighthound Collar (15")
Dark burgundy latigo leather chain martingale collar with hand stitched black liner, tooling, center Celtic bezel concho, and chrome brass spots; Medium stainless steel 3 ring assembly chain; 2" width tapering; 15" inner circumference
I hand sew with a traditional harness stitch method using needles, thread, and a diamond awl.
Because the chain 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.
